Your best look yet at the Aston Martin Lagonda

[Filed under BREAKSCLUSIVE]

If you’ve been keeping up with the News in recent weeks, you’ll be well aware of Aston Martin’s plans to resurrect one of its most iconic and important nameplates in the company’s history – Lagonda. From what tiny bit of information we’ve been given so far, we know the Lagonda will be a super-exclusive super saloon destined for the Middle East, and since it is an Aston Martin, we know it’ll be beautiful.

Thanks to a couple of images Aston Martin sent us over the weekend, we really know it’ll be beautiful. They said we could do what we wanted with these images after 4:00 AM Pacific today… so at 4:01 AM Pacific, here you go. For Hooniverse eyes only, say hello to the Aston Martin Lagonda, fully uncovered and out in the open.

This is our best look yet at Gaydon’s newest masterpiece and it’s truly a sight to behold.

2015 Volvo XC90 – Square is Pretty

Kamil Kaluski August 26, 2014 The News!

2015 Volvo xc90 front

Volvo has been hyping up its new 2015 XC90 for quite some time, and with good reason as it is the first all-new vehicle from this maker in decades under its new Chinese owners. Furthermore, like the MDX for the Acura brand and countless other automakers who rely on their SUVs for daily bread and butter, this vehicle is extremely important to them, and they had to get it right.

Designing a proper CUV/SUV or a minivan is a lot more difficult than a sportcars, in my opinion. Simplify and add lightness does not really apply here (but it helps); comfort, space, access, functionality, maneuverability, economy, and cost are huge factors. And it has to look right, too! It has to look imposing but not offending, strong but not vulgar, it has to appeal to women and not repel men. To say that designing a modern SUV is challenging is an understatement. So, did Volvo get the XC90 right?
