    Peek Inside the Aston Martin DBX

      ...a preview of more to come...

    The Aston Martin DBX, the first SUV for the brand, will be debuting on November 20th in Beijing, China. However, some information and pictures have been released early. 

    The starting price of the DBX in the US will be $189,900.  A lot of money, but from the looks of the interior, it could be money well spent. The interior is draped in high quality leather, suede surfaces, and brushed metal trim.  AM says they spent 6-months just to determine the optimum seating position for 99th percentile male to the 5th percentile female.  This was done to make sure that all of the screens and even the hood are visible without restriction.  The center console is the floating bridge type that allows for storage underneath. 

    Order books for the  DBX open with the debut on the 20th of November.

    $190K?? 😂

    Higher than the Bentayga starting price, less than the Urus...Ferrari's will probably be higher...

    If Cadillac had an interior like that in an Escalade, Cadillac could raise the base price of an Escalade by at least $30,000 to $50,000 from where it is right now.  Too bad Cadillac will NOT do that.  Car/CUV interiors still matter.

    Love the warm interior, be interesting to see the exterior and see what the powertrain specs are.

    I looks nice inside, most Aston Martins look good on the outside as well.  The interior materials and quality look top notch.   $189k isn't that bad considering most Aston Martins cost more than that and I don't think look this nice on the inside.  

    This one has AMG V8 power, no V12.

    Wouldn't surprise me if they do a Lagonda SUV north of $300k, the millionaires and billionaires keep getting richer so the market is there.   They had a Lagonda concept that will probably turn into an SUV to slot above the DBX, assuming DBX does well, and I bet the DBX is their #1 seller right out of the gate.

      China is by far Buick's most important market. More than three quarters of all Buicks sold are sold in China.  To that end, it should be no surprise that China gets updated models before the U.S. and also get variants that never will see our shores. Even models that are dead in the US, like the Lacrosse and Verano, continue on selling well in China.
      The Buick Enclave is one example.  In the U.S. it is a full-size model, but in China it is downsized to a mid-size model approximately the size of the current GMC Acadia. Buick just debuted the new Enclave in China and while it is unlikely we'll see it over here, the U.S. model could get many of the same updates when it bows for 2021.
      Outside we see a revised front fascia with a new grill. The running lights have the familiar boomerang shape while the headlamps have moved lower into the bumper area.  A new grille insert is there with a wider horizontal slat that gives the Enclave more visual width.

      The inside is where the real story is at. Greatly updated, the infotainment system is seamlessly integrated into the dash and a new set of buttons takes the place of the Precision Control shifter. The console is the floating type with storage underneath. (Click image to enlarge)
      The Chinese Enclave is powered by GM's 2.0-liter turbocharged LSY engine making around 230 horsepower and coupled to a 9-speed automatic transmission. 
      What do you think of the Chinese Buick Enclave and would you like to see these updates in the U.S. version?  Let us know in the comments below.

      The legendary character of James Bond is going green in the next film. But don't worry about Bond being put into a Pruis, the spy's ride will be an Aston Martin Rapide E sporting 602 horsepower and 700 lb-ft of torque. Only 155 Rapide Es will be built retailing at £250,000 ($331,822).
      The Rapide E has a top speed of 155 mph and can reach 60 from 0 in 4 seconds for fast getaways while the Pirelli P Zero tires feature sound deadening to make the vehicle as quiet as possible when sneaking up on villains. 
      The move is a push by director Cary Joji Fukunaga who is described as "a total tree-hugger". 
      The release of next Bond movie has been set back months by script re-writes and replacement of the original director.  Rami Malek who recently starred as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody is reportedly in talks to be the next Bond villain. 
      Aston Martin's ties with the Bond franchise goes back to 1964 when Bond drove an Aston Marti DB5 in Goldfinger.

      Subaru has announced that next week, it will be showing off the all-new 2020 Legacy at the Chicago Auto Show. To promote the announcement, the Japanese automaker has dropped a couple of teaser images.
      The exterior looks to be an evolution of the current shape, complete with the same headlights as on the 2018 Legacy. Previous spy photos hint at a larger grille and a lower roofline. We have a slightly better idea with the interior as it appears Subaru is going with a more premium look. There's also a large tablet screen that houses a number of functions for the driver and passenger. We can make out some physical controls for the volume and tune.
      We're expecting the 2020 Legacy to move to the modular platform that underpins the new Ascent, Forester, and Impreza.

    • I didn't like seafood as a kid.  Then I learned how good it is for you (certain types are amazingly high in protein and low in fat).  My mom would make a baked sole in a tomato/cacciatore type sauce that was delicious.  I would definitely eat it and ask for seconds. I'm with you on the shellfish.  I'm not sure how it smells different from other fish.  What I don't like, though, is the consistency and dealing with the outer shell.  I hate clams, crab, mussels, crayfish, and many more.  I had calamari within the last 10 years (in Europe), they tasted just okay, and, within hours, I got sick from them.  No one else in the party got sick.  I don't know what that was all about.  I won't eat them again.  Surprisingly, I'm okay with scallops and with larger shrimp.  I've had lobster about 5 times and it was good.  Once was at a seafood buffet on a Good Friday at Harvey's Casino at Lake Tahoe.  All the lobster you could eat. What you like is what I call "steak fish."  It's presented like a cut of meat or a chicken breast.  I agree. I love swordfish, halibut, and, if you get a good cut, shark can also be very tasty.  I also like smaller fresh water fish ... flaky and white, wow ... and if the scales have been removed.
    • "Just say yes" to Chandler's (AZ) IKEA.
    • Has FCA not learned that nobody in the USA wants a FIAT 500 (regardless of trim level)?!
    • GM should consider putting AWD on all of its (non-Cadillac) sedans as a $1000 option.  They already do that on the CUVs (although not as inexpensively).
    • I like the overall dash layout and the way it looks.  (So, that would be my lowly contribution to this thread.)
