The launch of a new model, especially one as revolutionary as the Aston Martin DBX is a nerve-wracking moment. Normally masters of the British sports car, Aston Martin engineers turned their hands to their first ever SUV and, after years of development and hundreds-of-thousands of miles of testing, the results are in. And the DBX has aced it.
Throughout July and August some of the most respected journalists and influencers, across the realms of automotive and luxury, have driven, lived with and scrutinised the DBX. Almost without fail, from the printed words of one of Britain’s oldest newspapers, to the on-screen views of YouTube’s MrJWW, they loved it.
Performance car magazine, evo, famously difficult to please when it comes to SUVs, said: “Aston Martin has struck gold with the DBX”. Car Magazine summarized the DBX’s abilities succinctly with the phrase: “A brief-nailing modern masterpiece that is somehow a consummate family car (practical, comfortable, spacious, quiet) and absolutely an Aston Martin.”
When Aston Martin first revealed the DBX, it said: “DBX drives like no other SUV. It drives like a sports car.” That promise was founded on the fact that Aston Martin had designed a completely bespoke lightweight aluminium construction for this car; it was a no-holds-barred, no-compromise design, delivered to seamlessly slot straight into over 100 years of fine British sports car heritage. And through that dedication, the views of the world’s media echo Aston Martin’s words: DBX feels like a sports car.
