At this point, there isn't much we don't know about Aston Martin's forthcoming DBX SUV apart from what its interior looks like and how much it'll cost, but thanks to an announcement made by the company on Wednesday, those are no longer mysteries either.
Said to offer class-leading space, the interior of Aston Martin's first-ever SUV will "meet the needs of the 99 percentile male to the 5 percentile female".
Aston Martin says the DBX has been designed with passenger ergonomics at the forefront, using a bespoke chassis to maximise interior space, demonstrated through a single photo taken from the rear seats. The length between the wheels allowed the design team to optimise cabin space while maintaining a sleek, low roofline. In fact, Aston said the driver's seating position allows a clear and unperturbed view of the vehicle's bonnet. Aston Martin confirmed each button and dial were carefully positioned after a lengthy discussion with the brand's Female Advisory Board. Aston Martin said last month that the DBX has repeatedly exceeded 290 km/h in high-speed testing, as well as regularly lapping the Nurburgring Nordschleife in under eight minutes. The company says it has integrated the screen in a way which minimises any interruption of flow and elegance. 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". As a result, the rear seats are reportedly kid-approved and spacious.
There's space at the rear too.
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.
Images of the all-new model's interior were revealed by Aston Martin today as the iconic British sports vehicle 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.
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.
