Aston Martin has officially unveiled the DBX, the marque’s first-ever SUV in its 106 years of manufacturing that now enters a market competing against the Lamborghini Urus, Rolls-Royce Cullinan and Bentley Bentayga.
The all-new Aston Martin DBX is fitted with a 542 BHP version of the Vantage’s 4.0-liter twin-turbo AMG-derived V8, which delivers 516 lb-ft of torque for a 0-60 MPH time of just 4.5 seconds. The DBX has enough power, support and finesse to push onto 181 MPH with ease, while putting all its BHP down on the road with a new 4WD system that can send 100% of the torque to the rear wheels if required.
Aston Martin rounds off its sporting prowess with a nine-speed automatic transmission, a set of steel brakes, and an air suspension as standard which can be lifted up by a maximum of 45mm and lowered by 50mm. Being an SUV, the manufacturer has ensured it can cope with off-road tasks, too, with new modes such as Terrain and Terrain+, as well as a hill-descent mode all featuring on the DBX.
In true Aston style, the DBX comes with a number of option levels, from a Snow Pack with a ski bag, roof-mounted ski rack and snow chains, to a more traditional Touring pack featuring a four-piece luggage set. Outside, the DBX echoes all of the archetype Aston Martin design cues — only raised up. From the headlights and taillights to the famous grille, side strikes and exhaust pipes, the DBX neatly fits in the marque’s line-up and is sure to expand its clientele.
Inside, it’s as luxe as expected with leather swathing the entirety of the interior — however, stepping further into the 21st century is the inclusion of two huge infotainment screens, with one at TFT screen measuring at 10.25” and the other at 12.3”. Apple CarPlay comes as standard, as does a 360-degree camera system and 64-zone ambient lighting.
