Beautiful Is Relentless

Shaped For Adventure

Our first SUV, DBX, is a new kind of Aston Martin, one founded on the principles of beauty, luxury and driving dynamics. Ready to go anywhere, it’s powered by the spirit of adventure. Built on brand-new architecture, DBX is designed to carry occupants in true Aston Martin style. Brimming with the latest technology to keep you safe, DBX is comfortable, sumptuously luxurious, and will thrill you from the moment you sit behind the wheel.

Design

DBX celebrates the Aston Martin design language in a new form. With a unique body architecture just for DBX, the design and proportions reflect the unmistakable style of an Aston Martin. First seen on a DB2 prototype in 1949, the Aston Martin grille provides a distinctive and evocative face for DBX. Integral to its design, it dictates the muscular curvature of the bonnet and the way it clothes the mighty powertrain. Active all-wheel drive with variable torque distribution and height adjustable air suspension, all provide DBX with the confidence and versatility you need for life’s great adventures. It will never compromise how it gets your there. DBX sits on an all-new platform designed exclusively for our SUV. Like all core Aston Martin models, DBX is crafted from aluminium that’s bonded not just for strength and toughness, but ultra-lightweight too.

Performance

Thanks to lightweight aluminium construction, and its world-leading Aston Martin powertrain and suspension developed by the finest engineers of their kind, DBX drives like no other SUV. It drives like a sports car. DBX is an SUV with a V8 engine that offers an exhilarating 550PS power output, backed by 700Nm of torque. That power is delivered over the widest possible range, focused on providing instant throttle response. For multi-terrain driving, two Terrain modes adjust the suspension and all-wheel drive systems to suit the surface. Power is intelligently directed through our bespoke all-wheel drive system, capable of sending power almost exclusively to the rear wheels for maximum driving dynamics.

Like all our production sports and GT cars, DBX has double wishbone front suspension combined with a multi-link rear axle, as well as electronic adaptive damping for every wheel.
