Should you buy an Aston Martin DBX?

Absolutely. We have to applaud the DBX. It’s a brief-nailing modern masterpiece that’s somehow both a consummate family car (practical, comfortable, spacious, quiet) and absolutely an Aston Martin.

Full of character and more engaging to drive than we ever dared dream, rather than tainting the badge it wears the DBX actually makes it shine all the brighter.

The Bentley Bentayga has a bit more depth in its engine range, due to the fact you can buy it with a plug-in hybrid, and the Lamborghini Urus might be a touch better to drive. And both cars have a less fiddly interior.

What we like

Not many cars are quicker at getting from a to b. Unlike with a sports car, the DBX simply glides over the worst of what British roads can throw at it.

What we don’t like

The looks are controversial, it costs a bomb to run, the epic customisation options means cars can get enormously expensive (even when compared with rivals) very quickly.
