The luxury compact SUV segment is quickly becoming a popular segment with new entries from Audi, BMW and even Acura. Land Rover is considering building a baby SUV that would be sold around the world and would compete in the new segment.
“I can see a sub-compact SUV working in all markets… and I don’t see a reason not to do it in the future,” John Edwards, Land Rover’s global brand director stated. Although Edwards sees it as a good idea, he has yet to see a convincing proposition for the new baby SUV.

If it does get the green light, the baby Land Rover would be shorter than the Evoque. According to Autocar the baby Land Rover would start around £18,000 and will likely share a platform with Jaguar and Land Rover’s owner, Tata. It’s styling wil also draw cues from the DC100 concept and upcoming all-new Defender.
