The 2016 Aston Martin Lagonda SUV concept had its premiere at the 2009 Geneva Auto Show. Since then, there had been plenty of time to fix any troubles or downsides the idea might have had and to improve any aspect to public might have disliked. Not when we are so close to its release date, which should happen either at the end of the next year or at the beginning of 2016, we are sure the model is improved, to everyone’s taste and simply stunning. The SUV will have a new platform, a fantastic exterior and interior and an amazing V-12 engine. Also, there are some rumors it might even have a hybrid and diesel version. The new model is planned to win a big share of the market, especially in countries such as Russia, China and similar. All in all, we are sure that the new SUV will amaze everyone and that it will win the hearts of all the drivers that look for something extraordinary and unique.
2016 Aston Martin Lagonda Body And Interior
The 2016 Aston Martin Lagonda will have a new platform called MRA, which stands for Modular Rear Architecture platform. This platform is also used in Mercedes-Benz GL-Class and, as it names says, it is very modular. This means it can underpin different types of vehicles with different width and wheelbase length. In addition, the platform is made mostly out of aluminum, which makes it light, yet strong enough. Also, there might be some more elements which Lagonda and Mercedes might share, such as V-8 engine or the Mercedes electronics. As for the exterior, the new 2016 Lagonda SUV will not keep the famous, recognizable fascia and grille each Aston Martin had so far. Instead, it will have a new, slightly retro look. The new model is trying to offer a new perspective by using old, vintage elements. There might be some people that will not like this due to unwillingness to expect new ideas, but we are sure that in time this look will become as popular as any other Aston Martin exterior. On the other hand, the interior will be everything but retro, which is absolutely rational and expected. A vehicle this class can’t afford to look outdated from the inside, because that gives away the feeling of lack of technology, necessities and though put into its design. Our overall impression is that the new Lagonda will have a new, fresh and unexpected appearance that will amaze any open-minded spectator.
2016 Aston Martin Lagonda Engine Options
The 2016 Aston Martin Lagonda SUV will probably have a 5.9-liter V-12 engine, seen in the DB9, and which was also installed in the concept and that was vastly used in some older models. Of course, it will be improved to meet the demands of today’s market, but we are not sure how the CO2 emission will be taken care of. Another option might be a V-8 engine, similar to those seen in some Mercedes-Benz models. In addition, there are some rumors that there might be a diesel and hybrid options available, too. The new 2016 Aston Martin Lagonda will have an all-wheel drive. Any other information regarding the powertrain is off the limits at this point.
2016 Aston Martin Lagonda Release Date
The new 2016 Aston Martin Lagonda will be released by the end of the 2015, while the exact date is still unknown. What we can say for sure is that the new model will have everything a luxury class vehicle such as Lagonda should have, from stunning appearance, excellent performance and powerful engine to comfortable cabin, high-technology gadgets and the equipment that ensure an enjoyable and fun journey.
