It can be seen from Aston Martin DBX that the appearance has strong integrity. The material it uses is also very special, its brand new aluminum platform. This not only greatly enhances the robustness of the body structure, but also does not increase the weight of the body. This is a big selling point for competing with opponents. Moreover, this also continues the excellent aesthetics of Aston Martin.
Compared with the past, the Aston grille is more powerful, the sides of the body are flexible, and the taillights are slim. However, the trunk spoiler is controversial.
However, from the perspective of body volume, the highlight of Aston Martin DBX is that even with 22-inch wheels, and its volume is much smaller than it is now. This reflects the subtlety of the designer.
Inside, the cabin is decorated as exquisitely as ever, and new materials are used, including flax fiber composite material, which comes from the same plant as flax.
The 64-color dual-area ambient lighting further enhances the sense of space and happiness. The rear passenger compartment is large, with 632 litres of luggage space in the trunk (62 litres of luggage under the floor). The main instrument is located in the 12.3-inch TFT screen, and the infotainment is located in the central 10.25-inch screen.
Despite its length and width (5m long, almost 2m wide), it is also a car that is naturally easy to place on the road. The A-pillar is very slender and visible in all directions. Those big wheels should be devastating for ride quality, but DBX combines Range Rover’s ability to reject the outside world and sharper handling.
The DBX rides on a complex three-chamber air suspension that can be adjusted for spring stiffness and ride height, and also uses a 48-volt active anti-roll bar. As a result, this large off-road vehicle travels faster than the smaller sports Vantage coupe.
Aston Martin and Mercedes have a close relationship and cooperation. It even expanded to use 542bhp, 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine, and hooked with ZF’s smooth nine-speed automatic transmission. This is called a world-class powertrain. This system combines a lofty highway approach with dynamic capabilities, which is rare even in large SUVs. It will reach a top speed of 62mph in 4.5 seconds, with a top speed of 181mph.
The four-wheel drive system is also very clever. In normal use, it uses 53/47 power distribution from front to back. In addition, there is an active center transfer case installed in the center, which is connected to the carbon fiber drive shaft and the rear shaft. On the other electronic differential, and the torque vector control by braking further improves the turning posture. Five driving modes control things behind you: GT, Sport, Sport+, Terrain and Terrain+, and its software algorithms can seamlessly adjust the active differential, air suspension, anti-roll system and traction control.
