The DBX is one of the more successful performance SUVs out there. It seems Aston Martin's design language works, no matter what body style you apply it to. The DBX is stunning in the flesh, and captures more stares than an average SUV. Aston's front-end design language works even better on a bigger car. As for the Vantage-inspired rear end, it's a love-it-or-hate-it element.
Because this is a high-end SUV, you get a panoramic glass sunroof, bi-LED headlights, including LED daytime running lights, and a set of 22-inch alloy wheels as standard. You can further enhance the appearance of the DBX by doing a deep dive into the vast customization menu.
The dimensions of the DBX suggest that Aston Martin went for refinement and handling rather than off-road ability. This SUV has a length of 198.4 inches, is 80.7 inches wide with the mirrors folded, and 66.1 inches tall. Aston claims a curb weight of 4,940 pounds, distributed between the front and rear in a 54/46 split. The most impressive figure is the wheelbase, which is 120.5 inches long. That's 6.5 inches longer than a Porsche Cayenne, giving it an impressive stance. It's also wider than the Porsche. On the downside, the longer wheelbase means the DBX is less suited to off-roading. With the air suspension set to maximum, the breakover angle is still only 18.8 degrees, and the maximum ground clearance is 9.3 inches. The Aston is quite alright on a gravel road, but we can't imagine taking it for any hardcore off-roading.

You know a manufacturer is serious about colors when the various options are broken down into subcategories like blacks and greys, purples and blues, greens, reds, bronzes and oranges, and silvers and whites. There are more than 50 colors available, and that's before you get to the grille finish, wheels, brake calipers, and exterior packages. Sadly, Aston sent us a rather plain white one to drive.
We much prefer one of the extroverted colors like Kermit Green, Royal Indigo (purple), Lime Essence, and Cosmos Orange. Those who want something more tasteful can dive right into the nine silver and white options or any of the more sedate options under the various subcategories. Quite simply, it will be hard to find two Aston Martin DBX models that look identical.
