2020 Aston Martin DBX: Fresh Spy Shots Give Us Another Look Inside

Aston Martin is just months away from revealing the DBX in its full production form and as you would expect, the development of the brand’s first SUV is in its final stages.

The colorfully camouflaged test car was spotted towing a trailer, with our spies able to snap a few pictures of the interior as well. The cabin remains a mishmash of Mercedes components temporarily mounted on a dummy dashboard, with the DBX even missing its final door cards and seats.

You can easily spot Daimler’s parts in the DBX’s temporary interior, including the HVAC controls, the steering, all the switchgear and of course the infotainment system and its rotary controller. This isn’t a surprise, given the DBX is using the Mercedes electrical architecture and the prototype nature of the car.

Aston Martin is expected to hide most of the similarities in the finished interior in order to give the DBX a more distinctive cabin.

The British car maker wants the DBX to not only offer a proper dynamic on-road performance but to be capable of tackling challenging off-road conditions as well.

Power will be provided by the AMG-sourced 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, which will be the only engine option initially for the DBX. The V8 powertrain is expected to produce 503hp (510PS) and 505lb-ft (685Nm) of torque, the same figures with the Vantage.

The all-wheel drive system is also expected to be more rear-biased in order to give the upcoming DBX the agility and handling Aston Martin is targeting. The Cayenne-sized SUV is based on a new architecture that will eventually spawn the future Lagonda sedan and SUV EV models. Apart from the V8, the DBX is expected to adopt hybrid and V12 powertrain options in the next few years.

Aston Martin will reveal the new DBX later this year, with production set to take place at the company’s new St. Athan’s factory in Wales, UK.

    • donald seymour

      Well, you really can’t compare the Urus to anything. The is the most unresolved SUV to date.

  • Owen Hamilton

    I personally think that the original concept car was better looking, this just looks to me like a regular SUV with an Aston Martin front end.

  • Matteo Tommasi

    Looks like a bigger Alfa Stelvio (except for the front). GOOD

  • Bash

    This will be a nice one.

  • eb110americana

    How you gonna put camo on a car and then print the thing’s name all over it?! This looks even worse than Aston’s latest road cars.

    • McFly

      Today car producers know that the test car will be photographed as soon as it uses public roads, so they use them as marketing.
      And even include sponsor logos!

      Since we are reading and commenting on this article, it works.

    I really like it, but the ducktail scares me

  • McFly

    They might as well keep that big testing screen in. To be ahead of the competition screen-wize.

    Or wait… I can’t even be sure it’s not part of the production interior. 🙂

    It’s a sad day when Aston Martin finally gets dragged into the SUV mess. Pathetic.
