We have been discussing much about the compact SUV segment which will soon see a couple of major launches. First two vehicle to make entry into this untouched segment is Ford EcoSport and Renault Duster. Yesterday we also brought you a news about Skoda and Volkswagen developing compact SUVs based on Volkswagen’s  A0 platform.

So in simple terms every manufacturer is silently developing a product which could excel in the compact SUV segment.

Surprisingly, French auto magazine L’Automobile, has published a couple of image of Chevrolet’s compact SUV. Chevrolet has filed for patents of a new compact SUV.

Expectedly it would feature plastic cladding, chrome trim and a tailgate spoiler. Interestingly the patents also disclose that it will be available in an all-wheel drive option too.
