Aston Martin Gets into the SUV Game
Aston Martin has long been known for its immaculate, luxury sports cars—even the preferred choice of James Bond. The iconic brand is now breaking out of the sports car mold by expanding its offerings to include a brand new SUV model. Aston Martin first revealed the concept vehicle at the Geneva Motor Show back in 2015, but the production model won't officially be released until 2020. Here's what we know about it so far to get you excited, even if you can't get your hands on one just yet.
Dubbed the DBX, this SUV is designed with the luxury buyer in mind. Featuring sleek styling and smooth curves, the overall look of the vehicle is elegant and sophisticated while still incorporating the athleticism and capabilities that SUVs are known for. Although the original concept had only two doors, the latest updates reveal that the production model will be a four-door vehicle. As buyers have come to expect from Aston Martin, the interior will be understated and classy, with no detail left untouched. There is no doubt about it: this vehicle was designed to turn heads everywhere you go.
Aston Martin is known for its sports cars, and fans of the brand will not be disappointed in the DBX. The first release of the SUV will allow buyers to choose between a 5.2-liter V-12 engine and a 4.0-liter V-8 model, both twin-turbo. The V-12 produces 503 horsepower, while the V-8 delivers 600. Both initial production models will be gasoline-powered, but Aston Martin promises that hybrid and electric models will not be far behind, expecting them to be released within a few years of the gas models.
Of course, luxury vehicles come with luxury price tags, and the Aston Martin DBX is no different. Its starting price is expected to come in at around $225,000, higher than Tesla's Model X. However, the exclusivity of the Aston Martin brand makes it well worth the high price. Those who buy one will be among just 4,000 customers who purchase Aston Martins each year. In company like that, you'll be sure to impress all of your friends by being ahead of the automotive curve.
