Aston Martin DBX 707 Review


The Aston DBX 707 stands out among competitors with its impressive power figures, but what really impresses is how this SUV handles. The steering is weighty without feeling unnecessary, and there is a genuine feel from its front tires – something only found with Astons.

Beyond simply being an SUV, this Aston Martin is a masterpiece of engineering prowess, reaching new heights of dynamic performance.

DBX Design

As the inaugural SUV from a premium sports car company, Aston Martin’s DBX must carry an immense burden. It must meet family-oriented and practical demands while still delivering all the raw power and driving thrills you’d expect from its signature cars. But thanks to an entirely fresh design approach by their team of engineers and designers, the result is something truly exceptional.

The proportions of the Aston Martin DBX are entirely in keeping with its heritage, boasting a swooping shoulder line that dips slightly at the rear and clean side graphics that give the appearance of being a smaller sports car. Furthermore, its low roofline and long wheelbase add an exotic aesthetic.

At the front, a carbon fiber bonnet and cooling air outlets add an aesthetically sporty aesthetic, while an aggressive front apron with its spoiler adds further aggressiveness that fits with this SUV’s off-roading capabilities.

Inside, Aston Martin has used its traditional luxury materials and craftsmanship to adorn its DBX’s interior with Bridge of Weir leathers and woolen carpets, bronze mesh, flax-based composite trim, as well as flax-derived composite trim to make sure this SUV feels as exclusive as it needs to.

But the magic really happens when you take control and drive. The 542bhp twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 kicks you off with a satisfying rumble while its all-wheel-drive system distributes torque evenly for an effortless yet comfortable ride. There’s also an elegant touch to its steering that makes maneuvering through corners effortlessly.

Combining luxury, capability, and performance with its beautiful exterior and striking interior is what sets the Aston Martin DBX as a family vehicle of this caliber; in fact, it may well be its most crucial production vehicle from all its history.

DBX Technology

As an iconic sports car brand, it should come as no surprise that Aston Martin doesn’t shy away from pushing the envelope when it comes to luxury SUVs. Equipped with a central transfer case to provide functional AWD handling and front and rear parking sensors for ease of maneuverability in tight spaces, the 2024 DBX stands out among its competition by constantly pushing boundaries and challenging expectations.

While not as refined as the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, Bentley Bentayga, or Porsche Cayenne, Aston Martin’s DBX still exudes luxury on the inside. The spacious cabin is decorated with classic Aston Martin heritage luxury signatures such as Bridge of Weir leather and wool carpeting; other exciting options available to the driver include solid wood interior trim options as well as bronze mesh and flax-derived composite. But its most impressive tech feature may well be its advanced safety suite featuring multiple crash test-proven active and passive systems designed to protect you and your loved ones on the road – making sure everyone remains safe on every journey.

Though heavier than its cousins, the DBX still packs plenty of punch. Its twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 can produce 542 horsepower – quickly propelling this two-and-a-half ton SUV from zero to 60mph in 4.3 seconds with top speeds reaching 181mph.

Owners who want the experience of racing may opt for the 707 version, which amps up power to 697 horsepower – however, this adds roughly $50k to the price tag.

The only real drawback of the DBX is its infotainment system, which was imported from Mercedes but is now more than two generations old. Aston Martin added its custom graphic overlay in order to make it appear more Aston-like; unfortunately, without touchscreen functionality, it makes using Apple CarPlay or Android Auto a challenge.

The DBX boasts an extensive list of standard safety features, such as dual-zone climate control, heated seats, steering wheel, keyless entry/start, as well as three years of servicing included with purchase.

DBX Performance

Aston Martin has long been associated with luxury, speed, and James Bond; these associations were carried over into its first SUV model ever produced, the DBX. This innovative new model takes an innovative approach by catering specifically to affluent customers seeking more space-efficient transportation that’s capable of transporting children, dogs, luggage, and much more comfortably than conventional sedans.

The DBX manages to deliver on its lofty goals thanks to a booming twin-turbocharged V8 engine designed in conjunction with Mercedes go-fast subsidiary AMG and capable of propelling this two-and-a-half ton vehicle from zero to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds – the fastest of its type and surpassing cars such as Lamborghini Urus, Bentley Bentayga, and Porsche Cayenne Turbo S in terms of acceleration performance.

The DBX may not offer quite the same driving thrills as some other exotic SUVs, but it still delivers plenty of excitement behind the wheel. Steering is sharp, and the chassis feels well-controlled even in its GT mode for optimal comfort and handling; ride quality tends toward firm, which some drivers might appreciate while others find irritating at this price point.

Wanting the DBX to feel more like a true-performance car, those seeking an upgrade should opt for the DBX GT. Offering extra power and agility thanks to an upgraded suspension and engine (510 HP/516 Lbs Torque), the GT can quickly accelerate to 62mph in just 4.8 seconds!

This model of DBX is ideal if you plan to take it off-road or through snowy conditions, as it features four-wheel drive and an aggressively tuned version of its standard suspension, which helps it navigate rough terrain and weather conditions more effectively.

DBX Comfort

As you might expect, the DBX offers an exquisite and luxurious interior. Swaths of leather cover nearly every surface in the cabin, and buyers have an array of upholstery choices available to them. A configurable 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and 10-inch Mercedes-sourced infotainment screen serve to manage most SUV controls and settings.

The DBX feels solid and sturdy on the road despite its low ride height, with comfortable front seats ideal for all-day driving and ample legroom in the back for taller passengers. Furthermore, this SUV provides much cargo space both behind its rear seats and trunk.

Aston Martin’s SUV builds upon its longstanding legacy of luxury while adding unique SUV capabilities that few other high-end brands provide, such as height-adjustable air suspension that enables drivers to achieve more aggressive driving posture and impressive handling prowess for an SUV. Aston’s DBX also handles like a sports car thanks to impressive handling prowess despite being an SUV.

With 542 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque available from its twin-turbocharged 4.0L V8, shared among other Aston models such as DB11, Vantage, and DBS models, it can quickly zip around town or power through unforgiving terrain. A rear-biased intelligent all-wheel-drive system and nine-speed automatic transmission provide power transfer.

Apart from its impressive performance, the DBX is also an absolute joy to drive in comfort mode. Its suspension is soft yet absorbent, while the steering feels accurate and precise for such a large vehicle. In terms of style, the DBX stands in sharp contrast to the Lamborghini Urus or Bentley Bentayga and is faster than the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S or Audi Q7 RS models.
