The 542HP Aston Martin DBX Is The Luxury Automaker’s First SUV

Any time Aston Martin decides to take a different approach to automaking, it’s big news. This includes things like a redesigned chassis, newly-adopted interior stylings, and minuscule upgrades to the company’s most prolific supercars. Naturally, that would make the announcement of the DBX — the company’s first-ever SUV — something far more noteworthy.

For the past four years, the progenitive platform has been in virtual development behind closed doors; and just last year, it hit the physical proving ground for the first time. Now, the sporty, seductive SUV has made its way into the limelight for all to see. Following hot on the heels of its contemporary supercar brethren, the DBX has adopted the same bonded aluminum construction as its counterparts, offering exceptional strength, toughness, and torsional control, while keeping weight to an absolute minimum. The vehicle’s expansive cabin comes outfitted with a plethora of high standard specification systems, including class-leading head and legroom, a full-length glass panoramic roof that boasts light obscuration and solar attenuation properties, and lavish full-grain leather trim sourced directly from Bridge of Weir. Below the SUV’s sculpted hood, a newly-introduced version of the DB11 and Vantage’s four-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 engine comes standard, offering drivers a substantial 542 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque tuned to meet the specific needs of the model. We’ve only skimmed the surface of the $190,000 DBX, so head to Aston Martin’s website to learn more.

Purchase: $189,900
