Aston Martin DBX707 Finally Nets A Touchscreen In Its New Cabin

Aston Martin has also elected to only offer the DBX707 after this particular update on its super SUV. 

While the Aston Martin DBX707 was a rather sublime super SUV, one major gripe with it was for its cabin to not really be on par with the rest of the car. The tech within was especially, to put it kindly, old school, with the central (non-touch)screen still to be controlled by a click wheel that was found in Mercedes-Benzes from two generations prior. 

The old DBX Interior.

Fortunately however, Aston Martin has since addressed this major complaint of its DBX by giving it an all new cockpit. And this one not only comes with a touchscreen, but frankly could be one of the best-looking within its segment too!

This wholly redesigned interior is predominantly highlighted by its new dashboard, which mimics a waterfall in the way it flows down from the front and into the cabin. There is then a horizontal design line that splits the dash and separates the infotainment system from the instrument panel and console, with its central ventilation vents discretely tucked beneath the new 10.25-inch central infotainment touchscreen that is at the heart of this cockpit.  

The new 10.25-inch touchscreen runs Aston Martin’s bespoke Pure Black infotainment operating system, which touts to offer capacitive single and multi-finger gesture control. New within the DBX707 too in terms of screens is a larger 12.3-inch digital instrument display, which lie ahead of a redesigned steering wheel. 

As for other changes within meanwhile, the door handles have been reshaped there is now option of a new Bowers & Wilkins 23-speaker audio system replacing the standard 14-speaker unit. Though what deserves the most to be highlighted within this revised DBX is for Aston Martin to have continued its trend in reintroducing physical buttons and switches on the centre console of this super SUV, which apparently comes in a bid by the supercar marque to avoid drivers fumbling around in adjusting certain common vehicle settings while on the move. Other automakers, take note!

Underneath now, Aston Martin has recalibrated the active dampers and air springs for this facelift. Its steering has also been retuned too, which has hence apparently lead to an improvement in the ‘response, precision and driver confidence’ when fully letting the carry-forward 707 PS twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 loose. 

Moving on towards the outside on the other hand, among the changes that have been made to this DBX include frameless door mirrors and door handles that now electronically ‘self-present’ when approaching the vehicle with the key. There are also now five new paint options for the body to choose from — Epsilon Black, Helios Yellow, Sprint Green, Malachite Green, and Aura Green, along with two new wheel finishes. 


And while on the topic of options, Aston Martin will be offering three trim specs for the updated DBX707: Inspire Sport, Inspire Comfort, and bespoke Q creations. Interestingly though, the DBX707 is to be the only spec of DBX available, with the base V8 (and Chinese-market straight-six) dropped from the lineup following this facelift.

This however should not come as a surprise once taking a peek into the sales by variant of its super SUV, with the DBX707 having accounted for around two-thirds of DBX sales in 2023 and is running at about 90% so far for 2024. 

Aston Martin will begin production the new DBX707 in the second quarter of 2024, with deliveries set to begin in the third quarter. The price of this revised British super SUV has yet to be revealed, but there are rumours for there to be a 5-10% price uplift over the outgoing iteration.
