British automaker Aston Martin just debuted the DBX, a stunning SUV fit for James Bond types that need a little extra space and something (slightly) more practical than a Vantage of DB11 straight from Q-Branch. Its the first SUV in their 106-year-old history and a big swing for the luxury marque.
Obviously, this isn't your Aunt Susan's SUV. Powered by a new version of the characterful 4L twin-turbocharged V8 engine, it's good for 542 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque and a 0-60 mph time of just 4.3 seconds.
It can handle itself off the beaten path, too, thanks to an all-wheel-drive system and dozens of off-road specific details like triple volume air suspension and the latest electric anti-roll control system.
The luxuriously handcrafted interior impresses, no to surprise, featuring class-leading headroom and legroom, a full-length glass panoramic roof, frameless door glass, sports car seat packaging, an elegantly crafted bridged center console, and an abundance of technology ranging from a 10.25” center screen with Apple CarPlay to a 360-degree camera system. There are lots of optional customizations available as well, like upgrading the headlining and electric roof blind to an Alcantara finish.
Priced at $189,900 and on sale now, buyers should expect first deliveries to arrive in Q2 of 2020.
