The first SUV model ever to bear the Aston Martin badge, the DBX has been five years in the making and if its sporty yet stylish looks are anything to go by, it was well worth the wait.

This powerful SUV has the performance to back up its appeal, powered by a new 4-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 engine that boasts an impressive output of 550PS and 700NM of torque.

With a sound character unquestionably Aston Martin, the exhaust system ensures this can sound refined one moment and exhilarating the next. The engine’s versatility isn’t restricted to its vocals either; the turbocharged V8 has cylinder deactivation to enhance fuel economy, yet it can also propel DBX from 0 to 100kph in 4.5 seconds and boasts a top speed of 291kph.

It also has adaptive triple volume air suspension and can raise or lower its suspension height to adjust for the most comfortable ride. Ø
