Aston Martin unveils first ever SUV and calls it 'adaptable'

Aston Martin, a manufacturer of luxury sports cars and grand tourers is entering the SUV segment for the first time in its 106-years with US$189,900.

The new Aston Martin SUV is the first ever SUV from the luxury auto maker and it looks impressive from the photos and the video.

Aston Martin's first SUV, the DBX, is powered by a 542-hp AMG four-liter V-8 engine and also claims at a top speed of 181 miles per hour and can achieve zero-to-60-mph time in 4.4 seconds.

The DBX will likely be constructed at Aston Martin's newly constructed factory in St Athan, South Wales.

The 90-acre, former Ministry of Defence site at St Athan in Wales was announced as the second United Kingdom plant for Aston Martin Lagonda in early 2016 and since then the whole site, including three "super hangars", has been transformed into a modern manufacturing facility for hand-crafted cars.

Built on a new dedicated SUV platform, the DBX is a beast that weighs 2,245 kilograms due to a large, extremely rigid structure and Aston Martin's desire to offer maximum interior space. Fuel economy is improved with a cylinder deactivation system and a 48-volt mild hybrid system. More than ever before, this clean sheet of paper has allowed all departments within Aston Martin to innovate and push the boundaries of what British design and engineering can create, resulting in a truly remarkable product.
