Aston Martin DBX: More Details Drop Before Full Reveal

Aston Martin DBX: More Details Drop Before Full Reveal

With prices starting at $189,900 it's dearer than the Vantage but costs less than the DB11.

Aston Martin's first crossover SUV - the DBX - will debut in Beijing, China on November 20, 2019.

In other markets, the DBX commands £159,000 in the United Kingdom, ¥22,995,000 in Japan, €193,500 in Germany, and CN¥2,378,000 in China.

Aston say the interior of the DBX, boasting more room than any previous Aston, is the result of extensive customer research and is created to make owners instantly at home in a cabin with class-leading materials and excellent ergonomics, with the DBX's bespoke chassis allowing the interior to be tailored to the specif needs of owners. The length between the wheels allowed the design team to optimise cabin space while maintaining a sleek, low roofline. Aston isn't just about beauty, though, and tells us that six months were "spent exclusively focused on defining the position of the driver within the vehicle". Aston Martin has also confirmed prototypes have posted Nurburgring lap times under the 8:00-minute mark, placing it in the running to become the quickest production SUV to ever lap the circuit - the current record is 7:49.3, held by the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S. Fundamentally, DBX offers a cabin that gives the driver an instant and relaxed confidence, yet offers the promise of dynamic performance to reward the most discerning driver.

"While the driver has been placed at the forefront of DBX's interior philosophy, key details throughout have been carefully considered to ensure the model delivers on all elements of the design team's initial brief", it said.

The dashboard accentuates the feeling of space and luxury in DBX. There are new TFT screens that have been integrated seamlessly, so that, despite their size, the technology doesn't interrupt the flow of the interior design. Aston says the bridged center console offers storage space below for handbags or other large items. This feature keeps valuables close to hand while not occupying the passenger seat and away from dirt on the car's floor mats.

Aston Martin even invited a group of children into the design studio to assess how easy it is to get in and out of the DBX, and how comfortable for them it is to sit in. All this consultation and feedback has led to class-leading front and rear legroom, says Aston Martin, as well as a "fantastic feeling of airiness" thanks to the DBX's windows and full-length panoramic glass roof. Sports vehicle packaging methodologies and technical solutions have enabled significant benefits to DBX.

There's space at the rear too.

Images of the all-new model's interior were revealed by Aston Martin today as the iconic British sports auto brand prepares for the arrival of the key new model which it hopes will help stem its current losses and provide a vital new revenue stream. Orders will open on November 20, the same day as the Beijing event, with deliveries starting next year.
