2020 Aston Martin DBX: Thai price and specs

British supercar maker expands its business with the launch of the DBX, a family car alternative for fans of Aston Martin.

Aston Martin Bangkok, another importer of fancy cars from Europe overseen by MGC Asia, has launched another model lineup in the form of the ever-popular SUV.

Called the DBX to neatly fit into the brand’s portfolio, Aston’s first-ever SUV should appeal to fans needing a family car after the DB11 or DBS sports car and is priced from 19.9 million baht.

The five-seat DBX gets an AMG-sourced 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 producing 550hp and 770Nm. Transmission includes nine-speed automatic and all-wheel drive.

Although the performance isn’t immediately outstanding in-class, Aston believes the DBX’s driving manners are suited well for its concept. The 0-100kph time is rated at 4.5sec and top speed 291kph.

Although the DBX can off-road with the aid of a three-level air suspension and five-step driving mode system, it’s designed more for on-road. Standard sizes for the 22in wheels shod with Pirelli P-Zero tyres for Thailand are 285/40 up front and 325/35 rear.  

Some SUVs in this class with a touch of driving fun include the Maserati Levante Trofeo, Lamborghini Urus and Porsche Cayenne Turbo.
