Apparently, the Aston Martin DBX will not be awkward on the paths of earth, even if it is mostly in the beautiful neighborhoods that we should cross it.

If it will still be necessary to wait until the end of the year 2019, to know everything the first SUV Aston Martin, the firm reveals, however, a few images, which allow us to make a first idea of the famous DBX.

The first SUV from Aston Martin will appoint well-DBX ! The british firm confirms it, and the opportunity for us to reveal the first images of the beast, still covered in camouflage. But if the designation remains, the silhouette of the vehicle away much of the concept that had been presented at the Geneva motor show in 2015.

The profile is much more massive than the concept of 2015 and the back part is astounding.

Finish the look of cut raised. The DBX is closer to the big SUV sports already on the market, as the Maserati Levante, or the Jaguar F-Pace, and has four doors. No dimension is for the time being communicated, but we’re guessing the sight of these images it should be relatively large. The front incorporates the stylistic codes of the brand, with a front grille that resembles the Vantage. On the other hand, the rear will be amazed by its raked tailgate with a spoiler quite marked and especially optics, in which the round shape seems to be new at Aston Martin.

 

What engine is under the hood ?

No new information is revealed on the technical side, even if we doubt that the DBX will have all-wheel drive. Under the hood, we might find the V8 4.0 biturbo engine of the Vantage, paired with a hybrid system, and it does not seem impossible that an electric model is also planned. The SUV will actually be produced in the new factory of St Athan and Aston Martin to announce that this site will ultimately become ” home electrification “. Not to mention that the technology is already in development on the Fast.

Finally, if we can see today in the DBX in action on the dirt roads of Wales, the SUV is only at the beginning of its testing program, which will eventually lead in the desert areas of the Middle East, on the collars of altitude in the Alps, or on the north loop of the Nürburgring. For the official presentation, it will still be necessary to wait until the fourth quarter of 2019.
