Volvo is thought to be working on a smaller brother to its successful XC90 off-roader.
Considering the popularity of the XC90 it would make sense for the manufacturer to offer a smaller and more affordable model, shown here in our exclusive computer-generated images.
The company is resolutely tight-lipped on prospects for the car, however, despite persistent industry rumours that it's close to completion.
The compact 4x4 sector has enjoyed tremendous growth and will gain two key new models in 2006. The new Toyota RAV4 shown in concept form at the Frankfurt Motor Show is expected in the spring, while Land Rover is also tipped to replace its Freelander by the end of the year.
