Porsche to build a compact crossover SUV?

Porsche to build a compact crossover SUV?

If reports are to be believed, Porsche is building a small compact crossover SUV to be positioned below the Macan. Porsche had vehemently denied the possibility of an entry-level SUV back in 2013. But the attractive SUV market and the global success of the Cayenne over the last decade and the recent Macan may have made Porsche reconsider the option.

Porsche wants this car to be the ‘sports car among compact SUVs’. Expected by 2020, the compact crossover could be based on the Audi Q3 platform with an all-wheel drive system and a PDK gearbox. The design language will certainly be aggressive as compared to the Cayenne and the Macan.

The compact sports SUV should get a lot of engine options to choose from – the 2.0-litre i4, 3.0-litre v6 and the 3.6-litre v6 petrol engines, the 3.0-litre v6 diesel and probably also the four-pot diesel under development. What this would also mean is that Porsche can meet the fleet average emission regulations and still make a faster, madder flagship 911. 

The new Porsche, if it does see the light of the day, would compete with the likes of the Mercedes GLC (the GLK replacement) and the BMW X1 Grand.
