Whether you like it or not, Aston Martin is making a crossover to create a model that rings in some cash with hopes to keep their operations afloat.

And despite the fact Aston Martin teamed up with Daimler AG for some parts bin sharing, it’s very unlikely that Aston will use a Mercedes-Benz platform.

According to¬†AutomotiveNews, Aston’s CEO, Andy Palmer, described the DBX to be more like a crossover than an SUV, meaning they’re more likely to trade off practicality for performance. That wouldn’t allow any of Mercedes’ SUV platforms to provide a basis because Palmer said they’re too SUV-like.

Instead, Aston’s said to be using their own platform, being developed for the whole next generation of cars, which will also provide a starting point for the next DB9 successor, the DB11. Expect the crossover however to surface sometime in 2019.
