It’s no secret that Aston Martin needs the DBX to do well, particularly as its financial situation remain shaky.
The British company surely hopes the DBX will shore up the brand as the Cayenne did for Porsche.
It’s arrived in Australia in just one highly-specified trim, priced at $357,000 before on-road costs. That puts it in the same price bracket as the Bentley Bentayga V8 ($340,400) and Maserati Levante Trofeo ($330,000) and close to the Lamborghini Urus ($391,968).
