WITNESS THE DBX: ASTON MARTIN’S FIRST SUV

March 13th, 2020 by

Aston Martin is known across the globe for being the best of the best in terms of luxury, power, and convenience, but the 2021 model year will see something entirely new from the company: a sports utility vehicle. Take a look at the DBX, Aston Martin’s first-ever SUV release.

AN SUV THAT ACTS LIKE A SPORTS CAR

Don’t let its class fool you. The Aston Martin DBX rolls off of the line at the same storied level of quality and power that the company is universally known for. Its engine options include a turbocharged V-8 producing 542 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. It makes the dash from zero to 60 in an astonishing 4.3 seconds, a speed unheard-of in its class.

Its transmission is rumored to be a nine-speed automatic, but manual versions may appear further down the line. The 2021 Aston Martin DBX may be an SUV, but once you’ve driven it a few miles, you’ll swear it is a sports car in disguise.

UNRIVALED UTILITY

With all-wheel-drive, active central differential, and limited rear slip differential technologies, the 2021 Aston Martin DBX is uniquely capable of the practical tasks demanded of all vehicles in its class. With every foot, the torque levels granted to each wheel on the DBX are modified by these systems for ideal traction and control. The DBX has half a dozen drive modes, including two which are specially tuned for off-road driving. Finally, the DBX’s adaptive air suspension system is capable of raising the SUV to nearly 10 inches of ground clearance and is capable of towing 5,940 pounds.

A HYPER-LUXURIOUS INTERIOR

You won’t find any plastic in this cabin. Cheap materials are entirely alien to it, as it is decked out in all of the best available leather, metal, wood, and suede. It contains an impressive 12.3-inch infotainment display and a high-definition instrument cluster. Standard interior features include a 360-degree camera array with display so that you can see absolutely everything taking place around your Aston Martin.

If you love ambient lighting schemes, you’ll adore the DBX. It has them available in 64 vibrant colors. If you long for comfort and roominess, look no further. The DBX has best-in-class legroom, knee space, and foot space.

SECOND-TO-NONE SAFETY FEATURES

The safety features employed by Aston Martin are as refined as those who own their vehicles. They include adaptive radar cruise control, which alters its speed based on surrounding conditions and the proximity of other cars. This system dramatically reduces the fatigue generally experienced during long drives and dense traffic situations. Active parking assist tech will likely be included on the DBX. These technologies allow the SUV to virtually park itself, should the driver desire it.

Blind-spot monitoring is sure to be standard on the DBX, along with automated high beams, automated emergency braking, forward collision, and lane departure warnings, lane-keeping assist, parking assist, and possibly even night vision technology.
