This week has been a ground breaking week for the SUV car market after a wide range of manufacturers have announced a desire to join the in demand SUV market.

Last year, other manufacturers such as Jaguar and Aston Martin announced their desire to join the SUV concept by releasing new concept models. The Aston Martin Lagonda concept model was featured at a previous motor show back in 2008, however, following the recent rise in the demand and popularity surrounding the Jaguar SUV concept the Aston brand have decided to go ahead.
As mentioned before, Volkswagen have experienced a considerable amount of success in the car market under the base brand and the Audi brand and have therefore decided to develop an SUV model under both the Seat name and the Skoda brand.
