Aston Martin has released images of a prototype of the upcoming DBX, the luxury British marque has confirmed its first SUV will be unveiled in the last quarter of 2019.
Designers have done well to transfer the brand’s design language to the high-rider, the front grille and wide haunches resemble that of Aston’s sports cars.
While it’s hard to imagine any owner getting a DBX dirty, engineers are currently assessing the car’s capability to conquer dirt on the Welsh Rally stage.
Along with the brand’s dynamic roots, the DBX will be the first Aston to offer multi-terrain driving and the ability to tow.
Aston Martin Lagonda President and Group Chief Executive Officer, Andy Palmer said: “Seeing a DBX development prototype in action is a momentous chapter in the story of our first SUV, for it is the moment it really comes alive. DBX is so much more than ‘just’ an SUV.”
The DBX will be built at Aston Martin Lagonda’s plant at St Athan in Wales. The brand has plans for the facility to become its ‘Home of Electrification’ when the marque’s fully-EV models enter production.
There is no word yet on what will power the DBX, however, the Mercedes-Benz V8 which drives the new Vantage is a possibility.
