Cast Your Eyes Over Aston Martin’s Groundbreaking SUV

Wed 20th Nov 2019

It’s been a wait of more than 100 years, but classic British car brand Aston Martin has finally launched an SUV with the all-new DBX.

With Jaguar and many other luxury car brands already making headlines in the SUV market, Aston Martin have made the move to join one of the fastest growing sectors in motoring.

The £158,000 DBX is firmly aimed at the family market and has been tested on children to ensure that it meets the needs of everyday family life. 

As to be expected though from a brand which has made some of the most stunning supercars of recent generations, the DBX has plenty of oomph with a four-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 engine sending it from 0-62mph in just 4.5 seconds.

The DBX was unveiled to audiences in China and the US this week and with the car being built at Aston Martin’s factory in South Wales there was plenty of excitement from the company.

Dr Andy Palmer, president of Aston Martin, said: “I can’t emphasise enough how incredibly exciting and significant DBX is for Aston Martin.

“Through its development alone, this beautiful SUV has already taken the company into new territories and in inspiring directions.

“DBX also marks a key moment in the delivery of the third and final phase of our Second Century Plan, not only representing the promised expansion of our portfolio but also signaling the start of production at Aston Martin’s second manufacturing plant.

“We have both delivered this model through our expertise, but also by garnering invaluable experience and knowledge from external counsel, including our Female Advisory Board.

“This is a real landmark for this great British brand and I promise that DBX will reward all who experience it in their everyday lives.”
