DBX is the first luxury SUV of Aston Martin which was unveiled as spy shots in November 2018. The lavishing concept is the first-ever two-door concept which was showcased at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. The company claims that the SUV is under test and will come with grand multi-terrain and towing abilities. The design of the vehicle is not yet disclosed as it was heavily covered in the spied images. The new SUV can be assembled at Aston Martin Lagonda’s St Athan, Wales facility.
The recent reports claim that the DBX can be powered by the powerful 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 powertrain which will be based on Mercedes-AMG. It could be fitted with the same powertrain under the hood like the Vantage and DB11 V8 grand tourers. The mysterious engine can generate 503bhp of horsepower similar to the Aston Martin Vantage. It is also assumed to be offered with 5.2-litre V12 unit however, we cannot confirm it until the company declares the report officially.
The vehicle will feature a powerful suspension technology which will be a three-chamber air spring and somewhat active anti-roll system. The technology will balance the weight of SUV and come with a high centre of gravity. The vehicle will be outfitted with all-new gaping front grille and sleek headlights. It will also feature raked rear window and broader wheel arches. The latest reports also suspect that the first-ever SUV will be also available in the hybrid motor, later after the introduction of the standard model.
The upcoming vehicle is expected to be launched by the end of this year, but it’s still unclear. The company claims that the manufacturing facility will eventually turn into the ‘Home of Electrification’ when the marque’s fully-EV models begin production stage. After the official launch, it will compete against the likes of Lamborghini Urus, Bentley Bentayga, and Rolls-Royce Cullinan. Although, it is not expected to hit the Indian market in near future.
