A significant interior upgrade and minor exterior tweaks for the Aston Martin DBX will come at the cost of its least-expensive variant, with the performance SUV’s lineup now trimmed to the flagship DBX707.

    Aston Martin Australia has confirmed local deliveries of the updated DBX are due throughout the second quarter (April to June, inclusive) of 2024.

    Prices are yet to be confirmed, but the base DBX will be no more with only the top-of-the-range DBX707 surviving.

    The Aston Martin SUV’s exterior design is largely unchanged (with details further below) but inside the cabin it’s a different story, thanks to a comprehensive refresh of DBX’s dash.

    While the sizes of the digital instrument cluster and infotainment screen are unchanged – measuring 12.3- and 10.25-inches respectively – they are housed in a completely redesigned dashboard.

    This includes a new instrument binnacle, new-look air vents, a centre console-mounted gear selector in place of the dash-topping buttons, and a range of more modern physical controls.

    The steering wheel has also scored an update with a smaller horn pad, thicker controls, and a flat bottom.

    Buyers can choose between bright or dark chrome door release handles and air vents, as well as  gloss smoked oak, gloss titanium mesh, ziricote wood, piano black, and carbon fibre veneers for the front door panels.

    Three interior trim combinations are available: Inspire Comfort (with matrix embroidery and quilting), Inspire Sport (with vector embroidery), and Accelerate (with Alcantara).

    Fitted as standard is an 800-watt, 14-speaker sound system with a surround sound mode developed by Harman, though a Bowers and Wilkins 1600-watt, 23-speaker audio system will also be available.

    Aston Martin has added five new exterior colour options to the DBX707’s palette, which include Epsilon Black, Helios Yellow, Sprint Green, Malachite Green, and Aura Green. Podium Green, previously exclusive to the DBX707 AMR23 Edition, is also available.

    There are also two new wheel designs. The 23-inch ‘Fortis’ wheel is now finished in Satin Black, while the 22-inch forged style can be ordered in Copper Bronze.

    Additional changes include powered pop-out door handles and flush glass side mirrors which are fitted with enhanced integrated cameras for better surround-view parking functionality.

    Aston Martin claims the revised DBX707 features recalibrated electronic dampers and air springs to better control its circa 2.2-tonne kerb weight.

    The Aston Martin DBX707’s twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 engine is unchanged, continuing to produce 520kW of power and 900Nm of torque, mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive system.

    With the standard DBX no longer available, its 405kW and 700Nm engine tune has also fallen by the wayside. There are no plans to introduce the six-cylinder DBX sold in China to Australia.

    Australian pricing for the 2024 Aston Martin DBX is expected to be announced closer to its local launch. The current Aston Martin DBX is priced from ​​$429,000 before on-road costs.
