Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Armada gets a significant makeover for 2021, starting with a squarer front end featuring prominent headlights. The design revisions reach out back, too, with a new bumper and taillights that are connected by a continuous trim piece. There's also a newly available Midnight Edition with blacked-out trim. Inside, Nissan redesigned the center stack and added a larger 12.3-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay.

PROS
Serenely quiet and comfy,
smooth,
potent powertrain,
pillowy ride.

CONS
Dreadful fuel economy,
some dated interior elements,
wanders at highway speeds.

The 2021 Nissan Armada is a big, comfortable brute that can tow the boat and haul the family all at once.

PROS
Spacious inside
Lusty V-8
Strong for towing
Good safety features
Value at the base level

CONS
Gas guzzler
Third row for kids only
Gets expensive
Plodding moves

The 2020 Aston Martin DBX is a midsize SUV that the British company unveiled in 2019. The first SUV to wear an Aston Martin badge, the DBX rides on an exclusive platform, but shares powertrain elements with the company’s sports cars. Powered by the same 4.0-liter V-8 found in the DB11 and the Vantage, the DBX boasts 542 horsepower, which turns it into a competitor for the Bentley Bentayga and the Lamborghini Urus. Likewise, the DBX sports a luxurious interior and is available with a wide range of options.

Pros
Borrows Styling Cues From Other Current Astons
Can’t Miss That Big Rear Ducktail
Coupe-Style Roof
Looks Sporty Overall

Cons
Doesn’t Have Plastic Body Cladding
Big Front Grille
Midsize Dimensions
Big Exhaust Pipes

The DBX is totally new for 2020 and is Aston's first SUV. Look for it to go on sale in May 2020.The DBX marks the legendary British sports-car maker's first foray into SUV territory—and its simultaneous entrance into high-end family transportation. The company best known for supplying James Bond with his wheels now aims to capitalize on the hugely popular crossover market that has already seduced iconic rivals such as Lamborghini with its wild Urus SUV. Aston Martin says the DBX will perform with the same liveliness and grace as its range of revered performance cars as well as demonstrate the impressive off-road and towing capabilities that are expected of ultra-expensive luxury crossovers.

There’s a key difference between this and the Lamborghini Urus: the latter wants to show you it can do anything a supercar can. The DBX makes its own rules. I really liked how it mixed dynamic fluency with precision and feel.

Pros
Engaging, tactile handling makes for more driver appeal than most fast SUVs manage to create
Soulful V8 soundtrack and usable, considered performance

Cons
Design-led interior perhaps isn’t as roomy-feeling as it could be
Infotainment system desperately needs upgrading
