If James Bond is a time dad: the First drive in the Aston Martin SUV

Whether James Bond is pursuing in his next adventure, entitled "to die No time" a villain over Stock and stone, is not yet known. But if 007 has to take a Querfeldeinhatz to save the world, there are now the appropriate vehicle. The SUV Aston Martin DBX is the DB5 (with the Sean Connery Goldfinger Gert Fröbe to the track brought) for the 2020s: all-wheel drive, 405 kW / 550 HP and a maximum torque of 700 Newton metres.

Nowadays, an SUV is more to vary than the ground clearance. "The Porsche Cayenne Turbo S. E. was our reference car," says engineer Matt Becker. This also explains the identical HP numbers to the British - which is provided by the AMG V8 Biturbo. Simply take a Cayenne or the Lamborghini Urus-to-make clone on the wheels, would be far too short, and would the claim of the British car manufacturer does not meet who would like to play in a League of his own. Committed to Tradition just. The DBX like this: a Gran Turismo feeling of driving means, such as the DB11, and as sporty as the Vantage. So a Jack of all trades, the räubert also through the terrain.

Since 107 years, there were no SUV's - up to now,

that's Why the technicians have put the DBX on a newly developed platform in composite aluminum design and a production line out of the ground stamped. As if that wasn't challenging enough, had to start the engineers five years at zero, as there was in the 107-year history of the British car manufacturer has to date been no Crossover. "That was the most difficult car I've ever done," admits chief technology officer Matt Becker. A missed shot could be fatal. Finally, the DBX is supposed to get even more brothers - a Coupé is as good as safe - and much-needed money into the coffers flush. Top of the new specifications of the Aston Martin DBX to the stand: Four persons with height in the Crossover space. The engineers stretched the wheelbase to 3.06 meters and cut the Overhangs. And the length is 5.04 meters - that's ten inches shorter than a Bentley Bentayga. The Whole is complemented by a very torsionally rigid body, a three-chamber air springs and the latest adaptive Bilstein dampers. A Porsche, a Mission: Eat my dust!

Good conditions for Cayenne-hunter. Stop. Stop. That would fall short. An Aston Martin is always the Gentleman Racer, the DBX. In the Standard GT driving mode, the 2.245 kilograms of heavy SUV is strikingly comfortable, even the notoriously bad English country roads and the Mercedes nine-speed automatic not beat the course. In the comfortable Seats with plenty of lateral support, you will feel already pretty good. In the corners the body leans even a little bit. This is by design. "A strong resistance to roll would work in this drive program artificially," says Matt Becker. The steering is already accurate and intuitive. A bit more feedback, as it is the traction of the 22 inch tyres ordered, would be desirable, however. press-inform / Aston Martin Refined the Cockpit with Mercedes-genes

Even if the DBX is still holding back, on the road, there is little opponents. In 4.5 seconds to 100 km/h and the speedometer needle to storm to continue up to 291 km/h. The fuel consumption is 14.3 liters per 100 km, accordingly. It attracts the Nobel-Crossover with "Sport" and "Sport Plus", the sneakers, the 48-Volt-roll stabilisation, significantly more and also the accelerator pedal characteristic curve and the circuit to act noticeably sportier. Pleasant is that the steering is more direct, but the sportiness with a large restoring forces leads us to believe. The same is true for the suspension, the cushions firmer, but stiff and wooden.

During the Handling of the Cayenne is front

curves of the Aston Martin DBX takes without rear-axle steering scores, but not quite so light-footed, such as the Porsche Cayenne. The weight distribution of 54 percent front, 46 rear helps with the quiet ride and the constantly driving forces and herschieb the end of the four-wheel drive upon release of the agility formula. Thus, traction is also a slippery surface is guaranteed, be it on tarmac or off-road. Inside it is remarkably quiet. In the GT-driving mode, the engine sounds rich and refreshing. Only in "Sport" and "Sport plus" by the AMG hooligan genes by double-declutching volleys or a louder combustion noise. When turning, this is even helpful, because the indicator is knocking like a Poltergeist. This annoying sound does not fit to the chic interior is decked out with the finest leather, carrying, if desired, the Design of a Budapest Shoe. Only the space remains. Since the British have gone through the specifications perfectly. Because in the Aston Martin DBX for up to four adults can find enough space and the boot swallows a decent 632 litres, however, the loading hatch is a bit tight.

The Infotainment has also developed. Connoisseurs will discover, as before, on the basis of the rotational pressing plate and a corresponding touch pad is related to the Mercedes Comand System. But the graphical interface has nothing in common with the dusty appearance of the decommissioned Mercedes-Infotainment. The individual menu points are selected by a rotary knob, and then by pressing open to enter the sub-menu. Not the fastest way but you find your way. So the DBX is a real Alternative in the luxury Crossovern. The the British but with a base price of 188.621,85 Euro princely pay.
