Aston Martin axes Lagonda crossover in favour of big saloon

Aston Martin has decided to kill its controversial Lagonda Crossover in favour of a new, larger saloon, according to some sources.

The Crossover, shown in concept form at the 2009 Geneva motor show, was based on Mercedes GL hardware (the two companies have a technology partnership), but was powered by Aston's V12 and seated only four.
