Aston Martin revealed its first-ever SUV, the DBX, late last year. The British firm has now brought the car to UAE shores, with deliveries commencing from Q2 2020.
Aston Martin has been watching from the sidelines as company after company broke its mould and started producing SUVs. Traditional rivals like Bentley, Maserati, Porsche, and even Lamborghini have been successfully selling SUVs for quite some time now.
Wanting a piece of the action, the British luxury carmaker debuted the DBX in 2019, giving it impressive performance specs and design. The 2020 Aston Martin DBX takes the fight to cars like Bentley Bentayga, Maserati Levante, Porsche Cayenne, and Lamborghini Urus.
Featuring the signature Aston Martin grille, the DBX manages to present a more imposing stance thanks to its beefy dimensions. Imagining an SUV from a company steeped in luxury touring cars and sports cars is a difficult task, but the design team has nailed it with the DBX.
Along with the luxury and sportiness that Aston Martin is known for, the DBX adds versatility and indulgence to the package with its form factor. Indeed, it has the potential to set new standards in the premium SUV sector.
The St. Athan, Wales factory has equipped its first SUV with a new version of the 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine that delivers 542hp and 700Nm. The numbers propel the high-riding Aston Martin to hit the ton in 4.5 seconds. The V8 also features cylinder deactivation for increased fuel efficiency. Paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission, the engine is capable of propelling the DBX to 290kph, flat out.
The 2020 Aston Martin DBX can now be experienced at the brand’s showroom in Downtown Dubai, with a price tag of AED 848,000. Deliveries will commence in the second quarter of 2020.
