There is no doubt that SUV models take over the market. There is almost no car manufacturer with no SUV to offer. After Lamborghini and Bentley, Aston Martin joined the trend. People from Aston Martin have announced a grand premiere of their 2020 Aston Martin DBX SUV model that will be named and will be officially unveiled at the end of 2019. DBX should be competing with Lamborghini’s and Bentley’s crossovers Urus and Bentayga. It will be produced in South Wales at a factory that Aston Martin calls “home of electrification”. The DBX concept was introduced in 2015, and then it had two doors, but changes are expected, and the 2019 model will probably have four doors. It is also expected to remain a camo outlook.
The appearance of DBX is quite similar to other models in the class. The front has large LED headlights and a large grille. Shortly, it has a very sporty and attractive outlook, and all looks very good on a high suspension. The DBX has two different rear spoilers designed to ease the airflow and make the vehicle more aerodynamic. The only thing that can be problem with DBX is a small rear window, which makes the visibility of the backdrop not the best. Anyway, we can conclude that the outlook of the DBX will be very attractive especially with an interesting camouflage on it. Also read about new Triton L200 2019
2020 Aston Martin DBX Interior
Although Aston Martin has not released any DBX interior image, we can see how it will look compared to previous cars manufactured by this British company, DB11 and Lagonda Taraf. Also, based on the wheelbase distance, we can say that there will be enough space for the legs behind, and given that it is a SUV model, there should be enough space in the trunk, too. The only problem can be windows, which probably won’t be like at competitive cars. Anyway, Aston Martin is sure to continue the tradition of elegant and luxury cars.
As we have already stated that this car will be produced at a new factory in South Wales that Aston Martin calls the “home of electrification”, we can conclude that a hybrid drive will be present. Also, the four-wheel drive has already become the standard for SUVs, and this is expected. According to this, DBX will probably get either an AMG V8 twin-turbo engine or a V12 engine that is the product of Aston Martin itself.
It’s more likely that the AMG’s V8 twin-turbo 4.0-liter engine with 503 horsepower will be installed rather than V12, because it has less weight, more precisely for 115 kilograms. But if it wants to be competitive, Aston Martin should consider the V12 engine, because Lamborghini uses engines with more than 600 horsepower, and V12 is good solution. For example, DBS Superleggera comes with 715 horsepower. In addition, it is very likely that DBX will have an automatic ZF eight-speed gearbox.
As Lamborghini Urus is selling in Europe for around € 200.000, it should be expected that the price of the Aston Martin DBX will be around. But the price might be lower than this one, if Aston Martin offers some models with different engines.
Urus is the second SUV model produced by Lamborghini, following the LM002 model that was produced from 1986 to 1993. Urus is quite similar to the Audi Q8, but it is more luxurious and unique in its own way. If we talk about characteristics and performance, Urus has a 4.0-liter engine that produces an incredible 641 horsepower. Also, 100 km/h Urus reach for 3.6 seconds, and the maximum speed is 305 km/h.
The Audi Q8 is another competitor to DBX. Compared to Lamborghini Urus, the Q8 is significantly cheaper. As far as its performance is concerned, it has a V8 engine slightly worse than in Urus, specifically 335 horsepower.
Bentley Bentayga had a lot of bad comments before being solemnly presented. But thoughts were soon changed after debut. First of all, it is incredibly comfortable and can not be compared with any competitive car. The price is similar to Urus. Bentayga has a 6.0-liter V12 twin-turbo engine and 600 horsepower. Up to 100 km / h acceleration in less than 4 seconds.
BMW X6 M
The BMW X6 M has probably the most similar features compared to Urus. The X6 is excellent on the roads, but off- road, this is not a situation and there is a little worse situation. The X6 has a 4.4-liter twin-turbo engine with 575 horsepower. Up to 100 km / h acceleration in 4.2 seconds.
Although Aston Martin has not released more information about DBX, we can conclude that it is about another great vehicle of the British manufacturer. DBX should have an excellent interior, while the exterior we have the opportunity to see and it is very interesting. Like other cars in the class, the DBX will be exclusive. In a year, we will have the opportunity to see a grand presentation of this vehicle and hope that Aston Martin will provide more information as soon as possible.
