What should I be paying?
The DBX is pitched very much as a daily, and that point is no better made than the eleven - count ’em - eleven optional lifestyle accessory packs. From ‘Snow Packs’ with tyre chains, ski-racks and a boot warmer, to the ‘Touring Pack’ (pretty fitted luggage, a safe under the front passenger seat and a first aid kit), to the ‘Pet Pack’ (dog bed, dirty paw shower unit, sill protector and dog guard - as well as other stuff) - it’s pretty much got you covered. There are bike racks, an optional tow-bar, a gun safe, picnic kits (the ‘Event Pack’), a ‘Sanctuary’ pack that has a battery conditioner and car cover - pretty much anything that you need to up your bottom line price. Even carbon tailpipe finishers (thought they do also come part of the ‘Expression’ pack that includes illuminated treadplates and special valve caps…). Put it this way: if you think you’re likely to walk out with a DBX for the £158k starting price, you may want to think again. Also, the V8 might be powerful and useful, but you’re looking at sub-20mpg all the time, max tax across the board and hefty insurance. If you have to ask how much the running costs are, you probably can’t afford them.
