Chevrolet has a few holes in its lineup. One of which is its lack of a compact crossover that more appropriately targets the Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, Kia Sportage, and Hyundai Tucscon than the larger Chevy Equinox. By the looks of things, GM’s product planning team is well aware of the situation, as this small crossover seems to be the solution.
According to Straightline, eye witnesses of the crossover peg its size to the near equivalency of the Chevrolet Cruze, which could mean that this cloaked compact crossover is based on the Cruze’s Delta II platform, rather than the smaller Gamma II platform that it was believed to be earlier. For those wondering,
that spells FWD-only for the crossover that doesn’t necessarily mean FWD-only, but we can’t know for sure until we get closer to the launch date, which is probably around a year and a half from now.
A few questions to ask ourselves: where will this thing be built? And will it even be sold in the U.S. market?
