Introduction

What Car? says...

With a high-end car like the Aston Martin DBX, image is everything, and few manufacturers can claim to have an image as strong as Aston Martin’s.

Not only is it consistently voted one of the coolest brands in the world, but it also has James Bond on its client list. Enough said. The DBX, though, is different to the two-door sports cars that make up the rest of the Aston Martin line-up – it’s a sports SUV.

There's also an even higher performance version – the 697bhp DBX707, which you can read more about here – and a plug-in hybrid DBX is expected in 2023.

So, can an SUV really ‘feel’ and behave like a true Aston Martin? That's what we'll be exploring over the next few pages of this DBX review. We'll tell you what the performance and handling are like, whether the interior lives up to expectations, how much it will cost to run and how it compares with the main rivals.

If your interest is piqued but you can't quite stretch to the Aston Martin DBX, you can find out how much you could save on many other new SUVs (in fact, vehicles of most makes and models) by using our free What Car? New Car Buying service.
