The McLaren brand has always been known for its sports cars and supercars. The SUV has never really been their ‘thing’ or the part of their plans. However, the near future is going to reveal us a new 2020 McLaren SUV. Moreover, McLaren has announced to release 15 new cars by 2022 and we are all looking forward to them.
When it comes to exterior of the new 2020 McLaren SUV, it can be mostly compared to the current 720S model. The first look at the new SUV, gives us the impression that it appears bigger and taller than a standard McLaren sports car. In the front fascia, the most distinctive will definitely be the unique triangular headlights with the horizontal daytime running lights. All of the lights will be using the LED technology. The nose of this vehicle looks as if it gradually narrows into a pointy top. You will also notice an aggressive front bumper with a vertical vent in it. The front part will also get a larger central intake. All of these features give the new McLaren SUV ultimately aerodynamic and sporty design. The profile has rather coupe-like appearance while in the back it will get slimmer taillights that will also use the LED technology. Speaking of the rear end, we have as well noticed twin exhaust pipes. The new McLaren will be mostly available in its traditional color – metallic orange, with the black roof that will probably be made of carbon fiber to reduce the weight.
Spacious and comfortable cabin is guaranteed inside the new 2020 McLaren SUV. Even the rear seats will offer plenty of room and comfort to accommodate three adult passengers. You can expect the top-quality materials only and aluminum and carbon fiber elements. The ambient lighting will also be provided in parts such as door panels or the dashboard. The driver will find a flat-bottomed three-spoke steering wheel with digital options on it. There is also a touch screen in the center console and the latest infotainment system with navigation system, satellite radio, Apple Car Play, Android Auto, voice recognition and others. Adaptive cruise control, automatic breaking and lane-keep assist are just some of the safety features that will be provided.
It has not been confirmed yet what the 2020 McLaren SUV will be hiding under its hood, but it will probably come with a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V-8 engine. Such an engine could deliver 533 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque. It has been said that it will take 3.5 seconds to hit 60 mph while the top speed has been estimated at around 200 mph. We have also been informed that AWD might replace the traditional RWD.
