Aston Martin DBX priced from AU$357000, interior revealed

Now we have our first image of the interior and details on pricing of Aston's first SUV ahead of its November 20 unveiling in Beijing.

Aston Martin says it has developed the DBX to meet the needs of the 99th percentile male to the 5th percentile female, meaning it is aiming to present a very broad set of skills and attractions, for a wide target audience.

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. While we've taken a look at what the exterior of the DBX looks like, Aston Martin has now given us a peek into what lies inside. The length between the wheels allowed the design team to optimise cabin space while maintaining a sleek, low roofline. Each button and dial has been carefully positioned following extensive testing from external counsel, including the brand's Female Advisory Board and multiple customer clinics with HNWIs of mixed demographic, ensuring the cabin develops a feeling of instant familiarity. Lots of internal stowage space has been built in - the bridged centre console offers space below "for larger items such as a handbag or large 1.5-litre water bottles".


The aforementioned children were invited to the company's design studio, where they climbed all over an "ergonomic assessment model" and shared their advice. Aston Martin said the design team made sure the rear occupants are not leaning over the driver and front passenger - the result of conventional stadium seating arrangements in ordinary SUVs. The approaches learned through extensive experience of making space efficient sports vehicle interiors means there is more knee and foot space for rear passengers than is typically found in rival SUVs.

Aston says its experience with squeezing legroom out of its sportscars helped it to maximise space, particularly in the second row.

Production of the DBX is planned to start in Aston's new Wales factory before the end of this year, with Australia deliveries expected by the middle of 2020.
