And now for Mr JWW's take ...
Aston Martin DBX is our first ever SUV. It differentiates itself by being
a bespoke chassis and body that has been designed specifically to be the best
in class. A ground-up, unique SUV that is hand-crafted in the UK, DBX was
created to be best in class in every way. The main focus has been to
deliver a car that is as beautiful to own and drive as any Aston Martin whilst
being hugely capable of those critical everyday duties.
Aston Martin set out with the target of creating the most beautiful SUV on the market. With tight, muscular lines, it is unmistakably Aston Martin whilst continuing with the perfect “golden” proportion that gives any AML product perfect form. Created to be accommodate but aerodynamic, the clever use of lines shrinks DBX’s form whilst giving it unmistakable road presence.
The DBX has a long wheelbase along with clever interior packaging that provides exceptional space and comfort for five adults. The advanced suspension lowers the cabin for easy ingress whilst clever door profiling avoids dirty sills from touching your clothing. With a standard panoramic glass roof, the feeling of interior space is enhanced even more with the beautifully lit cabin. Generous space continues in the boot with a best in class capacity of 638 litres. Cabin space is just as impressive:
Aston Martin have worked extremely hard with DBX to ensure that tech levels are of the highest levels. What is also important is that all of these listed features are a standard level of equipment for every DBX. Features include:
A hugely important part of owning an Aston Martin is the driving experience. A key phrase that we use to describe DBX’s fundamental core strength is sheer breadth of ability. This is a car that has been designed to satisfy the most enthusiastic of drivers with a muscular V8 engine delivering 550ps (700nm of torque), the highest specification suspension in class that manages body control and ride with incredible ability and a drivetrain that feeds power primarily to the rear wheels. With 54/46 weight distribution, it is a car designed to reward when the pace is increased and provide a level of dynamic involvement that makes the DBX a different proposition to the competition. Just as importantly, it is a car that is just as capable when it comes to relaxing the driver modes, softening the suspension and whisking you to your destination in serene comfort.
Your safety is our priority. DBX has an extensive array of safety equipment included as standard. The DBX has also undergone full multi-terrain testing.
