Aston Martin is continuing work on an SUV to rival the upcoming Bentley EXP 9 F. The car will be loosely based on the Lagonda concept from the 2009 Geneva motor show but Aston is promising a total restyle after near-universal criticism of the show car.

Like the 2009 car, the new SUV will be based on the underpinnings of the Mercedes-Benz G-class. Aston admits a deal is in place for Mercedes to supply platforms, drivetrains and even engines. Aston is likely to offer its own familiar 6.0-litre V12 in a flagship model, but a range of smaller petrol and diesel models and possibly even a hybrid will be offered.

The styling will bear no relation to the concept but it has not yet been decided if the new SUV will be badged as an Aston Martin or, like the show car, a Lagonda.

With Bentley and Lamborghini readying luxury performance SUVs, Aston may feel that it no longer needs to take on the risk and expense of

by on Sep.26, 2012, under Auto Review Specs, Cars, Chevrolet Car Reviews

General Motors South Africa announced today that it will be launching the new Trailblazer into the South African market before the end of this year.

The Trailblazer will be an all new entry for General Motors South Africa in the large Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) segment of the market, says Malcolm Gauld, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing for General Motors South Africa. “This great product will further strengthen our Chevrolet product portfolio offering which has rapidly expanded over the past two years. The response from customers has been very favourable with our Chevrolet sales volumes growing by over 50% in 2011 versus 2010.”

The Trailblazer, which is Chevrolet’s toughest and most refined SUV, made its global debut last year at the opening of the Dubai International Motor Show in the Middle East. “We are very excited about the addition of the Trailblazer into our already strong line up of Chevrolet products in the South African market.”

The Trailblazer is a robust seven-seater SUV, providing superior third row seating, exceptional ride comfort and a modern and fresh design. The vehicle combines the hauling and towing capability of a body-on-frame SUV with the ride comfort and efficiency of a crossover.  Gauld said that the Trailblazer model line-up and pricing would be announced closer to the time of launch.

Chevrolet has recently launched a string of new products, namely the third generation Chevrolet Utility, the Sonic Hatchback (including a diesel model), Sonic Sedan and Captiva Diesel model. “Since its launch in July last year, the Chevrolet Orlando, has already gained a 24% share of the MPV segment,” emphasised Gauld.
