Aston Martin introduces 2020 DBX
The ultra-luxury SUV will fetch $189,900 in the US market.
The Aston Martin DBX has finally come into view after a lengthy teaser campaign, just in time for the Los Angeles Auto Show.
The British luxury marque's first-ever SUV prominently features the brand's characteristic grille, made even more massive for the high-riding model. The horizontal slats are flanked by swept oval headlights, meshing with the DBS Superleggera.
The DBX is powered by an AMG-sourced twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 with 542 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, higher than the DB11 V8 and Vantage that share the same powerplant. Torque meets the pavement through a nine-speed automatic gearbox and all-wheel-drive system with an active center differential and an electronic rear limited-slip differential.
Bonded aluminum construction helps keep the DBX curb weight below 5,000 pounds, allowing the SUV to hit 62 mph in 4.5 seconds. Drivers can eventually hit 181 mph.
As expected, the interior is shrouded in high-end materials and features a large 10.25-inch touchscreen on the center console and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. A 360-degree camera comes standard, along with an ambient lighting system with 64 different colors in two zones.
The first 500 units will be an exclusive '1913 Package' with unique badging, sill plaques and an inspection badge endorsed by chief executive Andy Palmer. The package will be paired with a build book and invitation to a regional cocktail party hosted by executives.
The first deliveries are scheduled for the second quarter of 2020, with pricing starting at $189,900 in the US market.
