Aston Martin DBX707

DESIGN

The DBX707 is aggressive, muscular, and intimidating – more so in every aspect than the DBX. But this is balanced with Aston Martin’s timeless, sleek, and elegant signature style. A larger satin chrome grille and new front splitter are complemented by new air intakes, louvred bonnet blades and dark satin chrome around the windows. The side sills create a more heavily sculpted side profile, and the body sits atop 22” wheels, whilst 23” wheels are optional.

PERFORMANCE

The 4.0-litre V8 twin-turbo engine found in the original DBX has been recalibrated for even more power and torque. Inspiring its name, the SUV puts out 707PS, which equates to an astounding 697bhp – that’s an additional 155bhp compared to the classic DBX. All-new launch control contributes to a 0 – 62mph time of just 3.3 seconds with 900Nm of torque (up from 700Nm) and a top speed of 193mph. That’s sportscar performance in a luxury, practical SUV. Every area of the car has been enhanced to increase performance and driving pleasure. The new 9-speed wet clutch automatic transmission has been added for faster gear changes and a greater sense of control. For more dynamic handling, the updated electronic differential can deliver maximum torque to the rear axle, whilst the electronic power steering has also been upgraded. Carried over from the DBX is all-wheel drive and air suspension.

TECHNOLOGY

The DBX707 receives a brand-new centre console which gives you instant access to functions like ESP, manual gear selection mode, suspension control and an active exhaust switch. Through the centre console you can also quickly and easily select drive modes, including Terrain, Individual, GT Sport, and Sport+; the latter two featuring a Race Start option for enhanced performance. There’s also a 10” central display and 12.3” driver display, and it’s fitted with the Aston Martin Premium Audio System as standard with Apple CarPlay functionality. Emphasising the DBX’s sense of luxury, 16-way electrically adjustable Sports seats are fitted as well as soft-close doors.

SAFETY

To match its unrelenting output, the DBX707 requires equally immense stopping power. For this, Aston Martin has equipped the SUV with carbon ceramic brakes – 420mm at the front, 390mm at the back – allied to six-piston callipers. These are the largest brakes ever fitted to an Aston Martin and have resulted in a 40.5kg reduction in unsprung mass, which equals even better handling. As expected, Aston Martin has also decked out the DBX707 with a range of driver assistance systems, including adaptive cruise control, auto park assist, lane keep assist, and blind spot warning – to name a few.
