Test drive the Aston Martin DBX707, the supercar brand's SUV

【PhoneAuto Test Drive】In recent years, due to the popularity of SUV models, many supercar brands have made a “decision that goes against their ancestors” and turned their attention to this field that they previously looked down upon. From the initial Porsche Cayenne, to the later Lamborghini Urus, even Bentley and Rolls-Royce have launched luxury SUV models like the Bentayga and Cullinan. The model we are experiencing today is also from a supercar manufacturer, and it is the DBX707, a coupe SUV model under the British Aston Martin.

The Aston Martin DBX707 is an extraordinary luxury SUV that not only has supercar-like power and handling, but also has the comfort and space of a luxury SUV. As an automobile manufacturer with an F1 team under its belt, Aston Martin also upholds its pursuit of speed and desire in the civilian vehicle field, and this car also effectively demonstrates Aston Martin’s infinite pursuit of performance.

From the exterior, the DBX707 is not only a performance car, but also a luxury car. Its exterior design combines Aston Martin’s classic aesthetic elements and the sporty atmosphere of F1 racing. Compared to the regular DBX model, the vehicle is equipped with a larger front grille, which looks more imposing. The circular daytime running lights have also been changed to a short horizontal line shape, and the front spoiler has been redesigned, adding winglets to the front wheel arches. This not only allows the vehicle to have better downforce performance, but also can effectively divert turbulence from the front.

As for the interior, the Aston Martin DBX707 is also exquisite and luxurious. It uses semi-vegetable tanned leather material and carbon fiber trim, matched with dark metal and carbon fiber decorations, creating a low-key yet noble atmosphere. It also embroiders the iconic wing pattern of Aston Martin on the seats. The new car also provides seats with multi-directional adjustment, heating and ventilation functions, a 12.3-inch full LCD instrument panel, and a 10.25-inch central control screen, bringing comfort and convenience to passengers. The DBX 707 adopts a leather-wrapped steering wheel and is equipped with large-sized shift paddles. The feel of the shift paddles is also great, and carbon fiber material can also be selected for them. The car is also equipped with a launch control function.

As an SSUV model, the Aston Martin DBX707 has a larger space and stronger practicality than sports cars. It has a 505-liter trunk space, which can be expanded to 1520 liters by folding the rear seats. It also provides various storage spaces and cup holders, and is equipped with panoramic sunroof, keyless entry, wireless charging, heated rearview mirrors, automatic parking and other functions. Whether it’s a family trip or a business trip, the DBX707 can meet all your needs.

As for the powertrain, the Aston Martin DBX707 is equipped with a 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbocharged engine with a maximum power output of 707 horsepower, which is also the origin of the car’s name. The maximum torque of the vehicle is 900 N·m. With a 9-speed dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive system, the car can complete the 0-100 km/h acceleration in 3.3 seconds and has a top speed of 193 km/h. These data make the DBX707 one of the fastest, strongest, and most responsive luxury SUVs in the world.

The DBX707 not only has amazing power but also excellent handling. For the chassis, it adopts front double-wishbone and multi-link rear suspension, combined with a three-chamber air suspension and electronic stability system, which can automatically adjust the suspension height and stiffness according to road conditions and driving mode. When we set the car to sport mode, the suspension height will be lowest at 6.9 inches, and the lower center of gravity can provide better high-speed driving balance. It is also equipped with an electronic rear differential lock and torque vectoring system, which can effectively distribute power and braking force, enhance steering precision and grip. Whether it is flying on the highway or turning on mountain roads, the DBX707 can make you feel the passion and confidence of a supercar. However, the sporty tuning of the vehicle also makes the suspension relatively hard, so it is not as comfortable in terms of vibration filtering as some other luxury SUVs. But considering the type of this car, this is not a big problem.

The biggest difference between this car and the regular version of the DBX is the improvement in shift speed. The 9-speed automatic transmission on the regular version of the Aston Martin DBX has been replaced with a wet dual-clutch clutch. It not only better releases the increased torque, but also brings faster shift speed. Aston Martin stated that the new shift speed is 40% faster. Although we haven’t experienced how the regular version of the DBX shifts, on this Martin, its shift speed is indeed remarkable. In GT mode, the vehicle also shifts very actively. When driving at a speed of 110km/h, the vehicle can even shift to the highest 9th gear, thereby keeping the engine at a lower speed to improve fuel economy.

In terms of steering, the vehicle’s steering wheel feels very good. As a big guy over 5 meters long, the vehicle’s steering feel is not heavy, and it performs well in both steering directionality and response speed. After turning on Sport+ mode, the vehicle’s steering feel further improves, and the response speed is even faster, without any hesitation, making you completely unaware that you are driving a large SUV.

For Aston Martin, the DBX707 is not only a high-performance SUV, but also a lifesaver for Aston Martin, carrying the important mission of turning the brand from loss to profit. From the latest financial report, it seems that this car has indeed played a key role in turning the brand into profit, and the DBX has also become a key model and profit source for the brand.

In short, the Aston Martin DBX707 is a luxury SUV that incorporates multiple advantages. It not only has the power and handling of a supercar but also the comfort and space of a luxury car. It is a perfect interpretation of the F1 racing spirit and technology by Aston Martin, and also the best reward for performance seekers.
