Aston Martin reveals name of first SUV

Aston Martin DBX prototype

The first "real-world" test for the DBX?

With the DBX being Aston Martin's first-ever SUV, the company has had to develop a whole new testing regime for the auto, different to what it employs when developing its grand tourers.

As expected, the SUV has grown another pair of doors, but it maintains the elegant silhouette of the concept auto. "Naturally this includes impressive multi-terrain and towing capabilities as befits a state-of-the-art SUV", today's release continues.

Becker said: "As an engineer, it's genuinely exciting to get a feel for the vehicle you're working to create".

In the high-end sector, Aston Martin will join Bentley, Lamborghini and Rolls-Royce, which have already branched out into the popular SUV market with the Bentayga, the Urus and the Cullinan. The DBX uses an adaptation of Aston's new bonded aluminum sports auto platform. It seems that Aston Martin have finally decided on a five door version as against the three door version that debuted as a concept back in 2015. "In pure dimension terms there is little resemblance", Palmer said of the production model.

This presented a problem when athletes from Kosovo wanted to take part in worldwide competitions in Spain . India does not recognise Kosovo - a disputed territory in South Eastern Europe.

As for what's under the hood, Aston Martin is still tight-lipped as to what powers the DBX. "The DBX can not come soon enough", he wrote in a recent note to investors. Especially since the factory where the DBX is slated to built is the "Home of Electrification" for Aston Martin. "It's attractive, absolutely lovely", Warburton quoted one United Kingdom dealer as saying.

Aston notes that the DBX required a new test program, which makes sense, and that it "will perform with the verve and poise of a true Aston Martin", but also "will extend into areas previously off-limits to the marque's sporting roots".

Based on dealer reports, the DBX is expected to start at 170,000 pounds ($221,615), Warburton said.

This is going to arguably be an important auto in Aston Martin's history and definitely the most important vehicle under the brand's current CEO, Andy Palmer.
