In general, a quick blast from corner to corner on a well-desired road is enough to show you what a car can really do. Not so in the Aston Martin DBX707, a high-powered car, you just keep running without space. This is far above the standard SUV Aston introduced two years ago – not only in power, but also in feel and style.
At the launch of the DBX707 in Sardinia, Aston’s new man, former AMG boss Tobias Moires, did not say a word about his intention to move Aston Martin forward. Definitely bother a producer who rhymes with “Smorsche” in a very meaningful style. But the product needs to be brushed to do that, and not the type of moars that allow a puppy to leave the factory gates.
The DBX707 looks bigger than the standard DBX by all means. Moires’ new direction looks more purposeful across the board, but the DBX707 produces 4.0-liter dual-turbocharged V8 with 697 horsepower and 664-pound-torque, requiring a larger mouth to keep its engine cool. Arriving at 62 mph in 3.3 seconds, it impresses with its nearly 5,000-pound SUV, and its top speed of 193 mph is the fastest SUV in the world. The car’s aero is set to keep things neutral at fun speeds, and you can lose some of that massive speed when you need an optional set of carbon ceramic brakes.
When the driver decides to give the DPX707 a shoeing and redesigned center console with a new look on the outside, Aston gets the new sports seats. There are no longer so many big buttons; The new drive mode selector wheel has a large button to engage in manual mode and a lot of carbon fiber.
To sandwich all of those horses into the DBX707, Aston created a set of new turbochargers, a new induction system and a new engine tune. Find a quiet road and press the gas. It takes a while for the snails to spin before mounting – you pull yourself into three gears and approach (or cross) the speed limit. A Tesla Model X may be quick on paper, but the old world combined with the turbo torque V8 gravel noise and a snappy gear shift feels delicious. Cars like the DBX707 will soon become a thing of the past, and Aston Martin delights in sending its in-combustion efforts into the fray.
In GT mode, the day-to-day setting of the DBX707, the car performs well enough. The tailpipes are quiet after being reduced to life, the new nine-speed automatic transmission slides quietly from gear to gear and the cabin is quiet. Light steering, soft ride – everything is very quiet. The DBX is still a cracking family car. Still, the moment you press it, the noise occurs. Loud, murmur V8 nonsense.
Adding it to the Sport or Sport Plus, the whole “707” thing starts to make a ton of sense. On top of the high-performance and rugged look, the Aston DBX707 offers a stiffer front suspension, smoother rear suspension, new dampers, reinforced and refurbished variants, a narrow carbon drive shaft and a redesigned steering wheel. The result is a DBX that handles wonderfully. No matter how angrily the fountains are heard its ride is not harsh. In this case you will not be punished for wanting a fast car. The steering wheel provides a lot of feedback, making it fun to flick the DBX from corner to corner. An explosion of manual mode in the new transmission; Pull the paddle and it will stick to the right sports car-like gears, giving you more control than you might expect from a “family” SUV. Shift paddles are satisfactory to use.
Once you are there, go to Missile Control. Activation is deliberately easy: activate Sport or Sport Plus mode, stand on the brake, stand on the case, lift the brake and wait until the dash tells you to shoot. This is a great showcase for how fast the DBX707 can be but remarkably confusing.
2023 Aston Martin DBX707 A talented, entertaining, comfortable car. Nothing spacious either. There is ample space for those in the back, and there is enough luggage space for a family to go out for a week and not want anything. The only real annoyance in the cabin is the lack of a touch screen. When it does all the phone reflection, you may want it to be standardAnd , You can not communicate with anything by touching. For a car starting at $ 239,086 (including $ 3,086 for delivery), it’s not easy to get your ball around the wheel of choice, especially for menus.
It is clear that Aston Martin’s new direction is promising. The same familiar look, dazzling performance that worries the Germans, but the cars are not without use. You can feel Moires’ AMG influence on the car, though not too much. The DBX707 borrows from the best offered by Aston and Moires, making it an amazing one. This SUV, at a time when Aston was developing ridiculously powerful cars, just got an idea of what was actually being sold this time around. The DBX707 feels like a last hurray, an internal combustion celebration that does not leave fireworks.
