Report: Aston Martin’s potential SUV could ride on Mercedes-Benz GL platform
Mercedes-Benz’s CEO, Dr. Dieter Zetsche, told AutoCar that Aston Martin’s rumored Lagonda SUV could ride on the current GL-Class platform after Daimler and Aston Martin signed an agreement to work with each other and share technology.
The Aston Martin SUV is expected to surface in production form by 2017. As of now, it’s up to Aston as to whether or not to proceed with the GL-Class platform as a suitable starting point for the Lagonda SUV.
Do you think Aston Martin needs to build a crossover? It’s closest competitor should be Maserati’s incoming Levante, which is due sometime this year. There’s also a chance that Bentley’s own SUV could rival the Lagonda. Either way, the ultra-luxurious SUV and crossover segments seem to be coming to fruition. Do you think it will be a success?
