Aston Martin Updates the DBX Cabin, Makes 707 Only Engine

DBX cabin sees massive upgrade

  • The DBX707 is now the standard DBX

  • New infotainment highlights interior upgrades


Aston Martin is upgrading the cabin of its DBX SUV for 2025. But it’s more about what the brand isn’t doing this year. It won’t be offering any version other than the massively quick DBX707.

When the Aston Martin DBX launched in 2020, it offered multiple powertrain options. The standard engine was a version of the 4.0L twin-turbo V8 from Mercedes-Benz that made 542 hp. In China, a 429 hp I6 model bowed in 2021. Then, in 2022, The 697 hp DBX707 launched with 0-60 in 3.1 seconds and a top speed of 193 mph.

That big-power Aston was a big hit, and so for 2025, it’s the only one.

The biggest update for the 2025 DBX is the new infotainment system. Company chair Lawrence Stroll said the old system was a massive headache for buyers, and this is meant to fix it. The system is Aston’s own UX and runs on Linux. It has wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. An 800-watt 14-speaker stereo is standard, or buyers can upgrade to a 1,600-watt system from Bowers & Wilkins.

Aston has redone the door cards and the dash, and based on the company’s photos the design is absolutely stunning. It has also changed the control layout to one that should be much easier to use. It’s a lot like the one in the DB12, though with a more SUV-friendly setup.

There are some mild exterior changes, including five new paint colours, new mirrors, and a slight tweak to the door handles. The underbits, including the standard carbon-ceramic brakes and 48V anti-roll system, remain, but Aston claims it has tweaked the air spring and adaptive damper software.
