  • 2020 Aston Martin DBX spy shots - Image via S. Baldauf/SB-Medien

    Aston Martin's DBX SUV is on track for a debut in late 2019 and as part of the development a prototype has taken to Germany's Nürburgring for some high-speed testing. Judging from our spy shots and video, the 4-door DBX will be a small SUV with proportions similar to those of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio. The tester is heavily camouflaged, however, so the final shape won't be as frumpy as what you see here. Expect the DBX to resemble a stretched Vantage on stilts. Some readers will recall that Aston Martin also used the DBX name for a 2015 concept previewing the SUV's design. There were rumors...
