Aston Martin DBX

The end of the world is here. A bit late to the party.

Filling a gap in the model lineup makes sense.

I see no wow factor after one pass through the article. It’s an expensive SUV, a new entrant in a crowded niche.

It is a statement on the current economic reality that a carmaker sees growing volume in the segment and they might be able to make money. This speaks to the global economic prosperity currently in play.

Looks a lot like my 958 but with an ugly attempt at a fastback looking rear end

Looks pretty bland otherwise. Maybe they will make a fast performance trim

I think it's very bland looking for both an Aston Martin and a $190k SUV.
The rear of the car doesnt work for me and from the side it indeed reminds me a bit of a Stelvio.

I wonder what its undercarriage tech is. Is it completely Mercedes or do they use their own tech?

For Aston i guess it’s fine - they were really more known for their GT cars anyway. If rich people taking long “touring” trips would rather have fast, good-handling SUV’s than the GT cars of old, then i guess this is their evolution.

It’s stupider when you see Lamborghini and Ferrari doing this stuff, but guess what....i actually really like the Urus

Their own platform. Wheel gap...its an actual offroader and the air suspension is raised in the pic lol.



I really like it and being unique is usually expensive. I built one and it came up to well over 200. Cosmos orange loaded up.

This and a Vantage AMR manual, please.

Am I the only one seeing a bit of Mini in the front end and a little escape in the front/side?

Haha, poor thing, it is just an Audi in a pastiche of Lambo design elements.

I actually kind of like the Aston, it sure beats having to see another X6.
