If all goes to plan, then we can expect to see Volvo
launching a Mini Cooper rival sometime in the next couple of years.
According to Automotive News, the Swedish automaker wants to expand their lineup by not only taking on the Mini, but also the Audi A1
. Speaking directly with Volvo CEO Stefan Jacoby, the publication quoted him as saying that "premium customers no longer define luxury based on the size of the car or number of cylinders, there are other attributes which will come into play."
