Aston Martin Teases Us With the Lagonda All-Terrain Concept That Will Debut at the Geneva Motor Show
The All-Terrain Concept previews the first Lagonda-badged SUVby Andrei Nedelea, on LISTEN 02:22
Lagonda is a spinoff brand of Aston Martin that revives an old nameplate, one under which the British manufacturer wants to launch its first SUV model that could make its debut in 2020. But until the series model is shown to the public, they’ll be teasing it with this study called the All-Terrain Concept that will be fully revealed at the 2019 Geneva motor show (where we’ll be present to bring you live photos and the latest information).
So far we’ve only seen the study’s partly obscured face teased ahead of its debut in early March at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. It is by no means revealing, but we can make out the decorative line that makes up the lower edge of the grille and the car’s headlight clusters. The vehicle is also visibly a high rider, and one of the things this teaser emphasizes is that it has plenty of ground clearance.
The Lagonda All-Terrain Concept could be a two-door, maybe similar from the side to the Aston Martin DBX concept that was revealed way back in 2015.
There’s reasoning behind this assumption since now the DBX is being readied for production as a four-door, and there would be room in the range for a much more rakish and dramatic two-door SUV.
If it follows in the footsteps of the production DBX, though, this Lagonda SUV could be shown as a two-door, but it would receive additional doors before it reaches the production line. And it could also be electric - this would fit in with statements from the company that it would bring its first all-electric model to market by 2021.
Lagonda’s most recent concept before this SUV, simply called Vision Concept, was shown last year in Geneva, and it looked like a rakish and very stretched minivan from the near future.
This, therefore, points to the possibility that this taller model will also look quite unusual especially since Lagonda is supposed to be Aston Martin’s fancier arm.
The high rider might be called Varekai, according to some older rumors, and it may very well use a variation of the same underpinnings as the Aston Martin DBX, a model that’s set to reach European showrooms (first) sometime in 2020. But, the DBX will be marketed as a practical car too, in order to compete against the likes of the Lamborghini Urus, Audi Q8, and BMW’s X6, among others.
