The Aston Martin DBX's price puts it in competition with the Bentley Bentayga and perhaps even the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, but it's a far sportier SUV. The DBX707 version meanwhile is a fair bit pricier than the standard DBX but will still probably be cheaper than the new Ferrari SUV when it finally emerges later in 2022. The V8 sound and playful handling make it more enjoyable to drive than many sports SUVs and it can mix it with the best of them, even the brilliant-handling Porsche Cayenne Turbo. It's vast inside but you have to put up with a firm ride around town, a poor infotainment system and dubious fit and finish.

The DBX comes with a long list of standard equipment, including 12-way electrically adjustable front seats, leather interior trim, an Alcantara roof lining, heated front and rear seats, rear climate control, a powered tailgate, 64-colour ambient lighting, air suspension, hill descent control and a 14-speaker 800-watt stereo. The DBX707 adds lots of carbon fibre to the centre console plus sports seats, and Aston Martin allows you to create your own bespoke, money-no-object spec on either version.

The DBX707 gets 697bhp for a breathtaking 0-62mph time of 3.3sec. Remarkably, the increased performance doesn't lead to worse official emissions and MPG figures.
