2021 Aston Martin DBX Redefines The Luxury Market in BC
Reinvent the highway experience in BC. With the unveiling of the 2021 DBX, Aston Martin injects the luxury segment with full-throttle performance - fusing every adventure with peerless power and quicksilver accelerations. Sophistication no longer demands a sacrifice of thrills.
It also knows no equal.
The 2021 Aston Martin DBX Base is in a class of its own - even when compared to other luxury rides, such as the 2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Autobiography. Though these SUVs share a five-seat design, they prove quite different on the road; and BC families will soon discover the value of twin-turbo power.
2021 Aston Martin DBX Dominates Range Rover Sport In BC
Anchoring the new DBX Base is a 4.0-litre V8. This 90-degree closed-deck block - which blends lightweight aluminum forged pistons and connecting rods, an all-alloy quad overhead cam, and spectacle-honed bores - yields exceptional power, generating up to 542 HP at 6,500 RPM and 516 lb.-ft of torque at 2,000 to 5,000 RPM. Twin "hot-V" mounted turbochargers assure seamless highway responses, while direct-injection technology affords superior control over fuel distribution (this is complemented by both EcoMode technology and cylinder deactivation, which allows the engine to better adapt to changing driver commands). Additionally, a nine-speed automatic transmission bolsters performance, delivering a wide-spread configuration that amplifies throttle output. Achieve dynamic handling on every terrain.
In comparison, the 2021 Ranger Rover Sport is less thrilling than the new DBX. Its P525 Autobiography trim features a 5.0-litre V8 engine; but, despite boasting a larger configuration (and an integrated supercharger), this Land Rover model can only achieve 518 HP at 6,000 RPM and 461 lb.-ft of torque at 2,500 RPM. BC drivers will keenly feel the difference with each press of the pedal, with this eight-speed platform unable to deliver the desired power.
2021 Aston Martin DBX Speeds Past Range Rover Sport In BC
Meticulously crafted from bonded aluminum and composite body panels, the new DBX Base has been tailored for high-speed fun. Its lean profile - which measures 5,039-mm in length, 1,998-mm in width, and 1,680-mm in height - features aerodynamic tracks (1,698-mm in the front, 1,664-mm in the rear) and a wind-diverting clamshell bonnet; and its mid-mounted engine layout helps to achieve a near-perfect weight distribution (54% to 46%) to maximize traction. It will yield a stable stance, even as it blitzes down the road.
These features combine to afford sterling performance - with the 2021 DBX achieving a top-speed of 291 Km/h (181 MPH) and a 0 to 60 MPH output of 4.3 seconds.
The new Range Rover Sport P525 Autobiography, comparatively, offers a milder experience. It reaches 0 to 60 MPH in 5.0 seconds, and its top-speed measures a mere 241 Km/h (150 MPH). This will leave BC drivers struggling to keep pace on the highway, the trails, and the track. This V8 will disappoint.
2021 Aston Martin DBX Delivers Segment-Leading Performance To BC
Luxury now extends beyond style. The new Aston Martin DBX Base brings track-worthy power to BC, fusing the family market with exceptional strength and speed. It also leaves the 2021 Range Rover Sport P525 Autobiography lagging far behind. Prepare for a V8 experience like no other.
