After a teaser image that was published yesterday, the Aston Martin DBX has officially been revealed with Mercedes-Benz/AMG’s turbocharged 3,0-litre straight-six engine. For now, the new powerplant will just be made available to the Chinese market.
With this powertrain, the Aston Martin DBX boats a power output of 320 kW and 520 N.m of torque with an additional 16 kW and 250 N.m via the mild-hybrid system. This is transmitted to all four wheels via a nine-speed automatic transmission.
With this, the brand says that the Aston Martin DBX will sprint from 0-100 km/h in 5,4 seconds and reach a top speed of 259 km/h. Based on Chinese fuel consumption tests, a claimed figure of 10,5 L/100 km has been quoted.
Additional mechanical improvements made to the SUV include a Mercedes-AMG-sourced limited-slip rear differential, electronically-controlled anti-roll bars, adaptive air suspension and a carbon-fibre driveshaft.
For stopping power, six-piston front and single-piston rear callipers have been installed to the braking system. The new model is available with 21- and 23-inch wheel options.
