Aston Martin DBX is an SUV fit for 007

If you are an Aston Martin aficionado, you may figure out the conceptual model of the SUV revealed at the 85th Geneva International Motor Show in 2015 had the same name.

Aston notes that the DBX required a new test program, which makes sense, and that it "will perform with the verve and poise of a true Aston Martin", but also "will extend into areas previously off-limits to the marque's sporting roots".

The DBX was first previewed by similarly-named concept more than three years ago, and while the show vehicle was rather striking and appealing, the design seen on this prototype might be a beacon for controversy - argue it out below if you have to. "Naturally this includes impressive multi-terrain and towing capabilities as befits a state-of-the-art SUV", today's release continues.

Aston Martin could create "beautiful dimensions" for the DBX because designers were not limited by using a shared platform when building the auto, Palmer said.

For now, the first development prototype that you see in the pics is being put through a rigorous testing regime, starting with the Welsh Rally stage that you see in the pics, and eventually moving on to a wide range of off-road conditions from frozen Arctic to scorching Middle Eastern deserts, as well as the necessary on-road dynamic proving grounds such as the Nürburgring. The concept was a three-door but the production model will have five doors.

Aston Martin chief Andy Palmer added that the testing of the prototype was "a momentous chapter in the story of our first SUV".

Previous reports suggested the DBX might be called the "Varekai", but now it seems more likely Aston Martin could stick that name on a mid-engined baby-Valkyrie. "DBX is so much more than "just" an SUV; it will be the first model built at our brand-new facility in St Athan".

The tail gets a quad light setup and we know for sure that Aston Martin is hiding most of it under the contours for the image looks too plain to be an Aston especially after the dream job they have pulled off on the new Vantages.
