McLaren refuses to build an SUV (atleast for now)

McLaren refuses to build an SUV (atleast for now)

Let’s face it. Thanks to the success of SUVs in recent times, all auto makers have been working relentlessly towards offering competitive high riders. The irony is that even acclaimed sports car makers have given in to the revenue prospect. While Porsche made it a reality a while ago, some of the other players include Bentley, Lamborghini and Ferrari.   

However, McLaren feels otherwise. The company told reporters recently that they weren’t the first to point out that an SUV was neither sporty nor utilitarian. McLaren reiterated that it has always stood by its design philosophy, which is performance. And the brand believes that ultimate performance is sacrificed in the quest for SUV practicality. 

McLaren admitted that although some sporty SUVs drive exceptionally well, they knew exactly how these vehicles would have performed with half the weight, and less than half the ride height. Despite McLaren’s plan to launch a couple of models over the coming years, the company asserted that none of them will be family-oriented vehicles. Let’s see how this strategy works for McLaren in the time to come.
