Porsche compact crossover planned image

Porsche is playing safe and going along with the market so we’re not that surprised to find out that a compact crossover might soon join its lineup.

The introduction of the Porsche Cayenne has taken things to a whole new level for the German based automaker and it was criticized by its fans who didn’t see the need for such a vehicle. However, Porsche did as it knew best and introduced an even smaller crossover, the Macan, which is currently taking aim at the BMW X4 or the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe.

Things don’t seem to be stopping here for the car brand as Auto Bild is reporting that a new crossover, smaller than the Macan, might be produced by Porsche as well. This can only mean that it will be nothing more than a compact crossover, with the Mercedes-Benz GLA, the BMW X1 and the Audi Q3 in mind. The baby Porsche crossover is believed to come out by the end of the decade, being previewed by a concept which should be introduced over the next few years.

The new vehicle is expected to look more aggressive than its two larger brothers, and to get the heavily sloped roofline. Rear-wheel drive should come in standard, but AWD will be available as well. We’re not sure at this point which architecture this will be borrowing but chances are it will be shared with other premium VAG models. Additional details on this particular ride are limited for the moment and will probably be released by the end of the decade.
