Aston Martin has gone with what it knows best - applying its technical wizardry to produce the finest-handling SUV available. It's less brash than a Lambo, not as bold as a Bentley and not as commonplace as a Porsche. Although the list price is rather steep, it delivers a great package with genuine 4x4 credentials, family practicality and little sacrifice of power and handling.
Aston Martin's first SUV, the DBX, can't come too soon. Auto Express was invited to DBX HQ, the all-new production facility in St Athan, South Wales, to take a drive in the new model. The car we're driving is an early PT1 prototype – there are PT2s and PT3s to come. It delivers a driving experience that no other SUV can.
The £158,000 DBX aims to take the high-end SUV market by storm. It borrows heavily from the knowledge and know-how Aston has in building its sports cars, yet the aluminium underpinnings are bespoke to the DBX. The car's considerable 2,416kg mass is controlled by adaptive air suspension (double wishbones at the front and a multi-link set-up at the rear) and 48-volt active anti-roll tech.
Reviewers from Cnet have found the following[***]:
At 198.4 inches long, 80.7 inches wide and 66.1 inches tall, it's bigger than a Porsche Cayenne. Despite its stature, the DBX is surprisingly nimble. It's as great to drive in the city as it is on winding roads. The DBX has plenty of space in the back, though not as much as you might think.
