How about the 2022 Aston Martin dbx
Aston Martin, a century-old car brand born in 1913, focused on the creation of luxury sports cars in the early days and produced many classic models. However, in its long development process, the brand has changed owners many times, because the production and sales volume has not been high, and the operating pressure is also visible. Therefore, Aston Martin launched its first SUV model DBX in 2019, and it made its world premiere in Beijing. It is undoubtedly very important to the performance of this car in the domestic market. For Aston Martin, DBX is also the heaviest model in its second century plan. Practice has proved that this move is right, and now the sales volume of DBX has exceeded the sum of all other Martin models.
The importance of the Aston Martin DBX cannot be underestimated. The automaker's first SUV has been a huge success since its launch and now accounts for more than half of all sales. So far, the DBX has only been offered with an AMG-sourced 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 with 542 horsepower, but Aston Martin is planning a high-performance V12 variant with around 630 horsepower that would crush the Lamborghini Urus. A plug-in hybrid variant is also in the pipeline.
Before that, however, Aston Martin has revealed a new straight-six powered DBX - but it's only available in China. Like the V8 version, the 3.0-liter turbocharged straight-six that powers the new entry-level DBX is sourced from AMG: it's the same unit that powers the AMG E53.
Paired with a 48-volt integrated starter generator, the straight-six makes 435 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque, but the starter also provides an additional 184 pound-feet of torque when needed for up to three seconds of work. With a nine-speed automatic sending power to all four wheels, the straight-six-powered DBX will do 0-60 mph in 5.4 seconds.
Of course, that's slower than the V8-powered DBX, which will complete the same sprint in 4.3 seconds. In addition to the mild-hybrid straight-six, the entry-level DBX gets a standard electronic limited-slip differential, carbon fiber driveshafts and adaptive air suspension to ensure a smooth and comfortable ride over uneven surfaces.
Visually, the entry-level DBX looks the same as its V8 sibling, but with unique wheels ranging from 21 to 23 inches and straight sixes protruding from the front fenders.
