2020 Aston Martin DBX
The 2020 Aston Martin DBX is a midsize SUV that the British company unveiled in 2019. The first SUV to wear an Aston Martin badge, the DBX rides on an exclusive platform, but shares powertrain elements with the company’s sports cars. Powered by the same 4.0-liter V-8 found in the DB11 and the Vantage, the DBX boasts 542 horsepower, which turns it into a competitor for the Bentley Bentayga and the Lamborghini Urus. Likewise, the DBX sports a luxurious interior and is available with a wide range of options. Priced just below the $200,000 mark, the DBX is one of the most affordable Aston Martins available on the market. Let’s find out more about this SUV in the detailed review below.
Two of my favorite cars of all time are the Porsche 959 and the AMC Eagle (even more so in SX/4 guise), so I’ll have to admit to being a little giddy when I first saw pictures of the Aston Martin DBX. I mean, what’s not to love about an all-wheel-drive Aston Martin coupe with plenty of ground clearance? Defying conventional Aston Martin logic even further, the DBX is also the first suggestion of an all-electric vehicle from the Gaydon-based automaker.
At this point, there’s no clue what Aston Martin has in mind for the DBX Concept, but with high-lux automakers like Bentley, Maserati, Lamborghini and Rolls-Royce all getting in on (or at least considering) the SUV segment, the DBX would be a unique way for Aston Martin to join the party without angering brand loyalists too much. There is also the chance that the design is a styling exercise hinting at a future production performance grand touring car, or it’s just a way to bring Aston Martin into the EV conversation. All are possibilities, but only time will tell which, if any, proves to be true.
