Soon we will see the forthcoming Aston Martin DBX SUV breaking cover, and the date has been set on November 20th. Before that happens, a new teaser fills our waiting time here. Let’s see what it’s trying to show us.
So we watch a night view, where the Aston Martin DBX goes down a winding backroad and splits the darkness along the road with its LED high beams. We see some of the car’s appearance in flashes as it accelerates through the dim road.
Clearly visible are the gloss of the vehicle’s body and the taillight line pattern. Other things we can see are the Aston Martin flash badge across the display, leather, and low profile tires. The teaser ends with the SUV disappearing in the dark, giving us the last red flash from its rear lights.
Price-wise, the Aston Martin DBX will be very similar to the Lamborghini Urus. The British marque has confirmed that it will cost from $192,086. Powering the car is a Mercedes AMG-sourced twin-turbo V8 engine that pumps out 542 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque and is paired to a 9-speed automatic transmission. The effectiveness of this recipe has been proven in AMG cars, so it’s no surprise that Aston Martin wants to copy that.
The SUV’s performance is also backed by its electronic anti-roll bars and adjustable suspension system. Reportedly built based on the DB11 coupe, the forthcoming DBX comes with an aluminum bonded structure to help minimize weight. This kind of setup has also been proven successful on the Mercedes GLS and Bentley Bentayga. So that’s another shortcut for the new Aston.
The design cues seem to resemble what we find on the Vantage and DB11, which exude a modern impression. And lastly, the darkness that surrounds the teaser is unable to cover the SUV’s identity as an Aston Martin.
