Aston Martin DBX Overview
When the Aston Martin Rapide was revealed back in 2009 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the 4-door sedan from the British Marque wowed the world with its beautifully sculpted proportion and coupé-like exterior. The recently decommissioned sedan was the first and only modern-day Aston Martin with an extra pair of doors at the rear since the Aston Martin Lagonda back in the 1970s, until now.
The new Aston Martin DBX represents many firsts for the British marque since the inception of the company more than 100 years ago. It is the company’s first ever SUV, sitting on a brand new, all-Aston Martin architecture and will be the first model to be assembled at Aston Martin’s new facility at St Athan in Wales’ Vale of Glamorgan.
With proper SUV proportions and towing capability, the high-riding Aston Martin DBX is clearly from a different breed than its sports-car siblings, but the handsome face, beautiful proportion and superior driving dynamics make it unmistakably an Aston Martin and well deserved of the iconic wing badged
The Aston Martin SUV is being offered in the Malaysian market in the sole fully loaded variant, powered by a Mercedes-AMG-sourced 4.0 litre twin-turbocharged V8 masterpiece, driving all four wheels. The DBX attempts to deliver a true Aston Martin experience, only now from a higher vantage point.
