This week's snippets of automotive news cover the entire industry, from Volvo on a smaller model range to the Dacia Duster's options, from high-tech Land Rover interiors to Mazda's Kodo design language.
Small Volvo models not on the agenda
A smaller range for Volvo, a so-called 20 series, is not on the agenda, said boss Håkan Samuelsson, despite rumours to the contrary.
He said: “With 40, 60 and 90 [series], we cover all the segments we want to be in. It could change in the future but small cars are not on the radar right now.”
Land Rover interior to become high-tech
The interiors of Land Rover models could be made even more high-tech than the Range Rover Velar’s but will not feature “tech for tech’s sake”, according to design boss Gerry McGovern. “For some, we look at a more mechanical feel,” he added. However, the Velar interior does provide the blueprint for the next generation of Range Rovers.
Dacia Duster options not enough
