The reality of an Aston Martin SUV, the DBX, is getting closer


They’ve teased us with a concept in 2015, whet our appetites with a concept in 2018 and riled us up with a video of it slippin’ and slidin’ on ice earlier this year but it’s getting closer.

With the opening of Aston Martin Lagonda’s new (second) manufacturing plant in the UK, the brand has also released new pre-production pictures of the new DBX SUV.

Aston Martin’s first ever SUV is said to have undergone testing in various extremes – from the gut-wrenching Nurburgring to the freezing Artic Circle – and is on schedule for its unveiling at the end of the year.

Word is that the DBX will feature a turbocharged engine, for want of low-end torque and although specific details have been sparse, it won’t be far-fetched to expect Daimler-made engines fitted in, like in the V8 Vantage and V12 DB11.

Regularly spend countless hours online looking at cars and parts I can't afford to buy. How a car makes you feel behind the wheel should be more important than the brand it represents - unless resale value is your thing.
