Built on a new dedicated SUV platform, the DBX is a beast that weighs 2,245 kilograms due to a large, extremely rigid structure and Aston Martin's desire to offer maximum interior space.
Aston Martin says it has splurged on the details and was betting on China's growing demand for luxury for success.
Aston described the new SUV as a landmark moment in the company's 106-year history. We have both delivered this model through our expertise, but also by garnering invaluable experience and knowledge from external counsel, including our Female Advisory Board.
The culmination of an extensive development programme that began with physical testing in Wales a year ago and virtual development stretching back to 2015, DBX signals a new era in Aston Martin's pursuit to deliver performance, style and usability in a segment previously unexplored by the British manufacturer.
And perhaps more will come from Wales too, as the company's first SUV is created to allow the DBX platform to be used in future electric models of Aston.
After countless photos and teasing from Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer on Twitter, the new DBX is finally here.
With its capacity to raise the ride height by 45mm or lower it by 50mm the air suspension gives any driver the confidence to tackle a wide range of terrain.
With a Four-litre, V8 twin turbo-charged motor, the DBX is able to a finest tempo of 181 miles (291 kilometres) for each hour and endeavor -60 miles (97 kilometres) for each hour in 4.5 seconds. After accelerating from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 4.5 seconds, the SUV can continue on to a top speed of 181mph.
Before added packages and customization, the Aston Martin DBS has an MSRP of $189,900 and can be ordered now.
The DBX is Aston Martin's first ever full-size five-seat model and will have 632 litres of boot space.
The nine-speed automatic gearbox is paired to an all-wheel drive system with an active central differential and an electronic rear limited-slip differential.
Sitting at the prices of £158,000 in the United Kingdom, €193,500 in Germany and $189,900 in US, this auto will certainly mean money bags for the Gaydon-based company. In September, it raised $150m in a bond sale to help it finance the production of the DBX.
