The British based automaker Aston Martin is planning to modify the design of the Lagonda SUV in order to comply with what the company’s fans want.
The Aston Martin Lagonda will be a direct competitor to the Bentley SUV and after the EXP 9 F was officially presented to the public in a world premiere during this year’s Geneva Motor Show, in a concept form, Aston Martin won’t give up its crossover and it will work on its design in order to attract more customers into the brand and keep them there.
Rumors are saying that the production version of the Aston Martin Lagonda will be based on the same platform of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class and, thanks to a partnership signed between the two automakers, the British might also get engines and transmissions from the Stuttgart based company. The upcoming Lagonda SUV might also get V6 and V8 engines borrowed from Mercedes-Benz, but the top of the line will be the Aston Martin 6.0 liter V12 unit.
The car manufacturer is expected to use the Aston Martin logo on the final production version of the SUV rather than use a different brand, just like Bentley and Lamborghini are doing with their own crossovers.
