Aston Martin DBX is ready for productionAugust 30, 2019
Serial production of the first Aston Martin crossover will begin in 2020. In the meantime, foreign journalists captured the prototype of the novelty, which received a fully serial body and optics.
Introduced about four and a half years ago, the Aston Martin DBX crossover concept will turn into a production model at the end of the year. Although the name will be transferred unchanged, we cannot say the same about the stylish design of the show car, as the serial version of the model will lose some zest, in particular after adding the rear doors.
The rival of such high-performance crossovers as the Lamborghini URUS and Bentley Bentayga was caught by journalists during a series of final tests. It is reported that the prototype received a fully serial body and optics.
A typical feature of Aston Martin is that the retractable door handles should give the side profile of the crossover a smoother look, like the other British crossover – the all-electric Jaguar I-Pace. There is no doubt that the DBX will not look like a typical crossover, but rather, like a sports car.
You can say that this is a high-performance SUV, just by looking at the enormous size of the brakes on both axles, while the twin tailpipes of the exhaust system clearly mean that this is not an ordinary sports car. Also noteworthy is a roof-mounted spoiler with a central fin, as well as a rather large integrated spoiler on the tailgate. In front, the lower corners of the grille are surrounded by luminous daytime running lights that look slightly tilted.
The car will be offered with a 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo from AMG, as well as with a 5.2-liter V12 from Aston Martin. It is reported that a plug-in hybrid version of DBX is under development. Serial production of the first Martin crossover will begin in 2020.
