Volvo recently started developing a small platform with Geely and new details are starting to emerge about the vehicles that will be underpinned by the new architecture.

Automobile Magazine says the first model will be an entry-level XC40 that will slot between the V40 Cross Country and the larger XC60. It will reportedly compete with the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Mercedes GLA.

Shortly after the XC40 is introduced, we can expect a five-door hatchback that is roughly the same size as the Volkswagen Golf. The model will reportedly be more spacious than the S40 and is designed to battle the Audi A3 and BMW 1-Series sedan.

More interestingly, the company is reportedly considering a C60 coupe that would be based on the Scalable Platform Architecture (SPA). Little is known about the model, but it reportedly draws some styling cues from the iconic P1800.
