Gray 2021 Aston Martin DBX SUV at golden hour in front of rustic estate

2021 Aston Martin DBX Redefines The Luxury Market in Canada

Reinvent the highway experience in Canada. 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 proves to be a class of its own - powering past its competitors (including the Land Rover Range Rover Sport, the Porsche Cayenne, and the Lamborghini Urus) with ease. This platform promises the high-performance Canada drivers crave. 

Which luxury SUV offers superior power - the Aston Martin DBX or the Land Rover Range Rover Sport?
Which luxury SUV delivers faster accelerations - the Aston Martin DBX or the Porsche Cayenne?
Which luxury SUV provides peerless economy - the Aston Martin DBX or the Lamborghini Urus?

The DBX wins every time.

2021 Aston Martin DBX Dominates Range Rover Sport In Canada

2021 Aston Martin DBX: Power

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 Range 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. Canada 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 Porsche Cayenne In Canada

2021 Porsche Cayenne: Speed

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 2021 Porsche Cayenne Base proves less impressive. This model - though powered by a turbocharged 3.0L V6 - yields a 0 to 60 MPH run of 5.6 seconds when equipped with the Sport Chrono Package (that number rises to 5.9 seconds, however, without any supplements). Its top-speed is a mere 244 Km/h, or 152 MPH, and it simply can’t keep pace with the DBX. Drivers will feel the loss with every straightaway. 

2021 Aston Martin DBX Bests Lamborghini Urus In Canada

2021 Lamborghini Urus: Economy

The new Aston Martin DBX delivers more than quick speeds to the Canadian market. Instead it offers economy. Bolstering its engine suite is a direct-injection system, which affords superior control over resource distribution (this is complemented by both EcoMode technology and automatic cylinder deactivation, which allows the engine to better respond to changing driver inputs). An 85-litre tank holds ample fuel, while aerodynamic touches - including the rear aero wing and the flush-mounted door handles - help to reduce drag. This assures superior performance at the pump, with the SUV earning 14 MPG in the city and 18 MPG on the highway. Spend more time indulging in twin-turbo power and less scouring the streets for a station.

In comparison, the new Lamborghini Urus Base demands more fuel to power its 4.0L V8 - earning a mere 12 MPG in the city and 17 MPG on the highway. Drivers will find themselves searching for fill-up stops more frequently on their journeys, as well as generating higher emissions (it will generate a C02 output of 325, as opposed to the DBX's 269). Efficiency will be compromised.

2021 Aston Martin DBX Delivers Segment-Leading Performance To Canada

Luxury now extends beyond style. Instead the new Aston Martin DBX Base brings track-worthy power to Canada, fusing the family market with exceptional strength and speed. It also leaves its competitors - including the Land Rover Range Rover Sport, the Porsche Cayenne, and the Lamborghini Urus - lagging far behind. Prepare for a V8 experience like no other.

Starting at just over $176,000, the 2021 Aston Martin DBX shatters all SUV expectations. For additional information about this luxury model contact us today.
