Aston Martin DBX teased in near-production form
- Aston Martin’s debut SUV, the DBX, has been officially teased wearing production-spec body, albeit with camouflage.
- The DBX was first showcased in 2015 in its concept avatar. Previously, the SUV was rumoured to be christened Varekai in its production form, but now it appears that the DBX moniker will be carried over.
- While the concept was previewed as a 3-door, the production model will have a proper 5-door layout. Up front, there’s a huge characteristic Aston Martin grille that’s flanked by sleek headlamps. The rear of the teased model has round tail lights, which may not be the final production-spec design.
- The DBX will initially launch with petrol power, possibly Aston’s V12 and Merc’s V8. Moving on, the SUV will also go hybrid with Mercedes-sourced technology.
- Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer explains, “DBX is so much more than ‘just’ an SUV; it will be the first model built at our brand-new facility in St Athan. As such, it is very much the start of a bold new era in the company’s long history”.
