The 2022 Aston Martin DBX is a mid-size, front-wheel-drive, all-wheel-drive luxury crossover manufactured by UK luxury carmaker Aston Martin. The Aston Martin DBX Coupe is part of the brand’s future plans as a competitor to the Porsche Cayenne Coupe. The Aston Martin DBX roadster has proven to be a success in sales, accounting for more than half of all cars sold. The addition of the DBX Coupe presents a more style-oriented model to Aston Martin as a direct competitor to the Porsche Cayenne Coupe and Lamborghini Urus. Perhaps the new car could be produced with a plug-in hybrid power unit and on a long wheelbase. The DBX Coupe is largely similar to the front SUV, starting from the front window, the roof line drops sharply to give the sleeper-like body profile a wider, more flexible look.
The Aston Martin plans include an in-depth update to the Vantage, DB11, and DBS models, which Moers believes will improve the look, while at the same time making them more luxurious with a quality of build quality. These updates may also see the introduction of soft hybrid and plug-in hybrid power units in all three models. In addition, the typical DBX SUV line will be expanded with a new soft hybrid model that will appear later this year and a new high-performance model designed for early 2022.
Moers also announced that Aston Martin will adopt Mercedes-AMG source engines instead of continuing to produce their hybrid V6 gasoline engines. The super-sports still play an important role in the brand’s future plans, with the Aston Martin Valhalla and Aston Martin Vanquish halo models using a Mercedes-AMG V8 engine rather than the canceled V6 hybrid engine, which Moers said has almost gone through the concept phase. All equipment and engines shared with Mercedes will be installed to order Aston Martin models.
2022 Aston Martin DBX : Interior
The 2022 DBX is distinguished by the most beautiful sports cars, made at the expense of a conspicuous design function. Door handles, window panes, and seat controls look great but face ergonomic issues. Our biggest impact has to do with the entertainment system: there is no touchscreen function on the center display. Inside, the cabin is spacious, especially in the back seat. DBX has plenty of legs and enough space to accommodate a person from 6 feet to 5 feet in length. Despite the vague control of the seats, we eventually found a comfortable driving area as well. The cockpit looks good, especially from the front.
The Aston Martin 2022 DBX package is undoubtedly in the background, the voice recognition system can recognize many commands using natural speech. The entertainment system was supposed to have Apple CarPlay smartphone integration, but we couldn’t launch it during the DBX test. While the DBX has a large number of modern driving vehicles, their functionality required a lot. The adaptive cruise stopped abruptly several times, and the road holding system seemed very sensitive in detecting road signs but was actually useless for staying on the road.
2022 Aston Martin DBX : Engine
The Aston DBX 2022 is powered by a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 engine supplied by Mercedes-AMG. The engine has 542 horsepower and 516 pounds of torque and comes with a nine-speed automatic transmission supplied by Mercedes. Although the DBX is basically a rear-wheel drive, the center gearbox transmits torque to the front axle when the rear-wheel drive is detected, and there is also a limited-shift rear differential. In the version we drove on the best roads in the UK, the amateur music of the engine and the simple operation of the transmission was demonstrated. The EPA estimates that the 2022 Martin DBX will earn 14 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway.
2022 Aston Martin DBX : Safety
Aston Martin DBX 2022 model has yet not been tested by industry safety experts, Euro NCAP, due to the relatively low number of sales compared to other basic models, However, in addition to the front, side, and curtain airbags, there are additional active safety features as standard, including adaptive cruise control, lane assist and emergency braking in the car with pedestrian detection. The list of safety precautions continues with systems such as road sign recognition, traffic warning, traffic warning at the back of vehicles, and blind spot detection.
