Testing the Aston Martin DBX’s dynamics


The DBX – Aston Martin’s first SUV – is undergoing extensive assessment at Pirelli’s Pirelli’s R&D Sottozero Centre close to the Arctic Circle in Sweden, as part of its development program. The center provides a range of extreme environments, from snowy roads to ice-handling courses, which have enabled Aston Martin’s vehicle dynamics specialists – led by chief engineer, Matt Becker – to put the DBX prototype to the test.

As Becker stated, “The Aston Martin DBX needs to be ready for a wide range of multi-terrain surfaces, so in addition to testing the car in normal day-to-day situations, we need to test it in extreme conditions such as these. Testing these prototypes in cold climate conditions helps us to assess the car’s early dynamics and crucially ensure confidence, inspiring sure-footedness on low-grip surfaces.
