Sketches of new model give some idea of the future appearance of the crossover. The project will attempt to revive the “future of the big car”, whose production declined in 2008 due to the global economic crisis. This model has a chance for mass production due to rising car market in China, where large vehicles from leading manufacturers are becoming more popular.
