The Aston Martin DBX is the Brand’s First SUV

Lamborghini has the Urus, Rolls-Royce has the Cullinan and now Aston Martin will have the DBX. The British manufacturer unveiled earlier today its first-ever SUV.

The prototype you see here will be thoroughly tested starting with a Welsh Rally stage, driven by Aston Martin’s own Chief Engineer, Matt Becker. Of course, it will be put through its paces from the frozen Arctic and scorching deserts of the Middle East to high Alpine passes and the high-speed demands of the German autobahn and Nürburgring Nordschleife the press release says.

The Aston Martin DBX will be able to handle itself off the beaten path and will be able to tow. An Aston Martin that can tow? That’s as weird as a Lambo or Rolls-Royce that can tow.

Matt Becker spoke of the all-new DBX after his drive and said: “[…] it’s always a big day when you get to put the first actual miles on an early prototype and I’m delighted with the near perfect correlation between the simulator and this prototype.” He added: “As an engineer, it’s genuinely exciting to get a feel for the car you’re working to create. DBX is a very different kind of Aston Martin, but we will be testing it in all conditions and across all terrains to ensure it delivers a driving experience worthy of the wings badge”.

The 2020 Aston Martin DBX will be unveiled for the first time somewhere during Q4 2019. The SUV will be built at the all-new St Athan facility alongside the brands upcoming full-EV model.
