We are confident that DBX will be highly appreciated by lovers of comfort as well as the power that embodies the Aston Martin driving experience.”

It is powered by a 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V8. It features an impressive output of 542bhp and 700Nm of torque, and an active exhaust system which defines it as an Aston Martin brand – refined sound at one moment – and roaring the next.
One of the unique features of DBX’s V8 engine is its cylinder deactivation which enhances fuel economy, but also boast of speed, propelling from 0 to 100kph in 4.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 292kph.
Another distinctive feature of the DBX is its adaptive triple volume air suspension, combined with the latest 48v electric anti-roll control system and electronic adaptive dampers, which allows the car to raise its height by 45mm or lower it by 50mm, enabling it to tackle a wide range of terrain.
DBX goes on sale at a starting price of 72,000 KD.
