The first-ever SUV of the British luxury brand, the Auston Martin DBX, ‘visited’ 10 Downing Street in London last week. Its debut is expected in the fourth quarter of 2019.
The DBX is a very important key model for Aston Martin. The carmaker hopes it helps attract new customers. The camouflaged prototype was photographed near the UK Prime Minister’s official residence a few days ago, where it arrived to celebrate St David’s Day.
Aston Martin will build the DBX at the St Athan facility in the Vale of Glamorgan, Wales. This former Ministry of Defence site is transformed into the ‘Home of Electrification’ where hi tech all-electric vehicles will roll off the assembly line.
Since the new DBX SUV is increasingly seen on the streets, what is one of the stages of ‘real world’ testing, the model becomes closer to its official debut. As we know, it will be unveiled in the last quarter of this year and then go into production in 2020.
A production car will probably have bumpers and optics different from those on the prototype, but the dynamic slim silhouette with big wheels should remain.
The potential rivals for the 2020 Aston Martin DBX are the Lamborghini Urus, Ferrari Purosangue or even the Rolls-Roice Cullinan. The electric Lagonda SUV and sedan will be built on the DBX’s platform later on.
