Debuting the DBX: Aston Martin’s 1st Ever SUV
We had the opportunity to take a look at Aston Martin’s first ever SUV: the DBX.
As expected, it’s luxuriously bold with its elegant design and craftsmanship.
“Powered by the spirit of adventure” Aston Martin wanted to join the SUV game along with Porsche, Lamborghini and Rolls-Royce. Although it is not set to be production until 2021, prototypes were shared this summer of 2020.
- First ever Aston Martin SUV
- 0-60mph in 4.3 sec.
- Engine: Twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 engine supplied by Mercedes-AMG.
- Horsepower: 542
- MRSP: starting at $192,986
The grille is distinctive for the DBX; we really like the look of it. The DBX is made from aluminum which allows it to be ultra-lightweight without compromising the strength or safety of the car and the engine is supplied by Mercedes AMG, which means you know you are going to have speed (& fun!) plus reliablity.
We love Aston Martin interior design. Sleek, luxurious, sexy- their designers know a way to a girl’s heart. The standard media section is 12.3-inch fully digital gauge cluster with customizable ambient lighting. Heated front and rear seats with options of ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and more and equipped with a giant sun roof reaching from the front to rear.
What we would order:
Aston Martin has a quiet, bold elegance about the marque, however, if we are ordering the first ever SUV, we want a flashier color. Not crazy like yellow or green, as we feel Aston Martin should be slightly stealth. Perhaps China Grey or Morning Frost White with Phantom Grey or Pure Black interior.
Interior we would skip the ventilated seats, as we are in the PNW, and opt into rear heated seats for our girlfriends to be comfortable on
our snow trips.
An exterior add on that would be a must is the carbon fiber tailpipe finishers; not only are they good looking, they ensure temperature control air flow.
Competing with the Lamborghini Urus and the inevitable debut of Ferrari’s SUV, the DBX would still be a desired addition to our Beauty & Keys garage.
