  • Aston Martin DBX prototype

The very sporty utility vehicle will be called the DBX when it goes on sale in about a year. The taillights have been swapped out for a more circular element, while the trademark Aston Martin grille remains true to the brand.

The Aston Martin Lagonda Vision Concept auto is pictured during the 88th Geneva International Motor Show in Geneva, Switzerland, March 6, 2018.

Whether or not 007 will head for the woods in one in his next film is yet to be seen, but it would make for a great chase scene.

Aston Martin has released a handful of pictures showing an early prototype of its SUV getting its drift on around a Welsh rally stage.

The DBX will be Aston Martin's first SUV.

It will use the name DBX, as expected, following in the concept's tyre tracks. Naturally that means working on the car's multi-terrain and towing capabilities to ensure it works in all scenarios.

'Move more, sit less,' government says in new exercise guidelines
With a few exceptions, the advice in the new guidelines is not so different from what we were told in the 2008 guidelines. The previous guidelines stated that only 10-minute bouts of physical activity counted toward meeting the guidelines.


DBX is scheduled to be unveiled in the last quarter of 2019 and will be built at Aston Martin Lagonda's St Athan facility; a state-of-the-art luxury manufacturing plant that will ultimately become the "Home of Electrification" when the marque's fully-EV models enter production.

"As an engineer, it's genuinely exciting to get a feel for the vehicle you're working to create", he continued. It seems that Aston Martin have finally decided on a five door version as against the three door version that debuted as a concept back in 2015.

In the high-end sector, Aston Martin will join Bentley, Lamborghini and Rolls-Royce, which have already branched out into the popular SUV market with the Bentayga, the Urus and the Cullinan.

Aston Martin Lagonda President and Group Chief Executive Officer, Andy Palmer. "DBX is so much more than "just" an SUV; it will be the first model built at our brand-new facility in St Athan".

Official pricing for the Aston Martin DBX has not been announced.
