The new MQB platform from the Volkswagen Group is going to get plenty of iterations in the next year. It’s going to be underpinning a whole slew of small SUVs from the company. Audi, Seat, Skoda and Volkswagen SUVs are all on the way, all aiming for the space below vehicles like the Skoda Yeti and Audi Q3.

There should be considerable savings in both investment and time if they share the common platform, and those benefits should be passed on to consumers.

The first vehicle to emerge in this programme is the Audi Q1, which we should see at the Geneva motor show in March 2016. The Q1 will be based on the platform that currently underpins the three-door Audi A3.

There should be a range of engines offered by the VW Group, from 1.0-litre to 2.0-litre, from petrol to diesel, and there should be hybrid versions as well. Prices should begin between £14k and £20k for the different brands within the group.
