Expert Rating

Aston Martin DBX

(2020 – present)

    Summary


    The Aston Martin DBX is a large luxury SUV and the first model of this kind from Aston Martin. It was launched in 2019, with first cars hitting UK streets in the first few months of 2020. It is built in a new factory in St Athans, Wales.

    Like other SUVs from luxury and performance car manufacturers, the DBX aims to broaden the Aston Martin model range and appeal to a wider range of new customers, or existing customers who already have an Aston Martin sports car in their garage. It is currently only available with a petrol V8 engine, although other engine options are apparently under development.

    The Aston Martin DBX has received very positive reviews from the UK motoring media and, as of June 2022, holds an Expert Rating of 83%. This score is based on 21 published reviews from British outlets, including reviews of the more powerful Aston Martin DBX 707, which arrived on UK roads in Spring 2022.

    Most reviewers have praised the DBX’s styling, driving dynamics and comfort. Criticisms are few, but are mainly directed at it being somewhat less practical than other large SUVs and lacking in interior technology found in many other (much cheaper) cars.

    Safety rating


    No safety rating

    The Aston Martin DBX has not been crash tested by Euro NCAP and, given its price and exclusivity, we’re not expecting that it ever will be tested.

    If it does happen, we’ll published the test results here.

    Eco rating


    No eco rating

    The Aston Martin DBX has not been lab tested by Green NCAP. Once again, we’re not holding our breath waiting for it to happen.

    It’s a massive SUV powered by a petrol V8 engine, so it’s pretty safe to assume that it wouldn’t score highly if it was ever lab tested by Green NCAP…
