The way for Aston to do crossovers is to throw Aston styling on the GLE and the GLS. Now that Mercedes has them in a stranglehold oops I mean now that Mercedes is cooperating with them.
Niche aka "4 door coupe" and "SUV coupe". SUV are pointless, they have neither better off-road capabilities than a normal lifted car, nor more space than a van, are not more comfortable than a sedan, don't handle anything close to "sport" despite their appellation (Sport Utility Vehicle).
