First Look: 2025 Aston Martin DBX707 – New Infotainment System Adds Polish To Aston’s Potent SUV

by | April 21, 2024

A state-of-the-art infotainment system leads a host of upgrades for 2025 that aim to add more polish to Aston’s flagship SUV.

A 12.3-inch instrument cluster and a 10.25-inch infotainment display led Aston Martin to renovate the DBX707’s interior.

If you’ve ever seen a beautiful woman or handsome man smile, only to see their crooked, yellow teeth, you’ll have a good indication of what’s wrong with the otherwise remarkable 2024 Aston Martin DBX707 SUV: its infotainment software.

Basically a lightly-revised rendition of Mercedes-Benz’s MBUX system, its outdated tech seems a placeholder at best. Of course, you can’t fault Aston Martin, a boutique automaker lacking the sheer might of massive multinational automakers. Aston Martin’s annual production amounts to a rounding error in their books. But the British automaker’s exclusivity and rarity make it a true gem in the automotive world.

Still, the infotainment system? Some things are better left unsaid.

New tech headlines revamped interior

Thankfully, some functions are still handled by conventional buttons.

But that’s being rectified for 2025, as a new state-of-the-art system, developed in-house, debuts along with a cabin makeover. The new system incorporates wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto plus multiple USB-C connections and integration with the Aston Martin smartphone app. A Bowers & Wilkins 23-speaker, double amplified, 1,600-watt surround sound system is standard.

The new system incorporates a 12.3-inch instrument cluster with a center-mounted 10.25-inch infotainment display. Thankfully, not all of the DBX707’s functions are on the screen, as physical buttons remain for the transmission, drive modes, and climate control. Other buttons control the suspension, electronic stability program, exhaust, lane keep assist, and parking distance control.

Of course, the rest of the cabin has been updated as well.

The system updates necessitated an interior makeover, so the 2025 Aston Martin DBX707 gets a renovated cabin as well, taking its design cues from the new DB12 and Vantage. The new design sought to visually shorten the interior’s height. Designers also simplified the center console and matched the air vent chrome finishes to those of the rest of the cabin. The door handles have been redesigned, while the front door veneer, available in gloss smoked oak, gloss titanium mesh, and updated ziricote wood, piano black and carbon fiber, has been enlarged.

Interiors are offered in Inspire Comfort, Sport and Q specifications – the latter being Aston Martin’s customization program.

The best part remains the same

Massive carbon ceramic brakes come standard.

As before, a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 and a 9-speed wet clutch automatic gearbox funnel 697 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque to all four wheels. Aston Martin says the DBX707 reaches 60 mph in 3.1 seconds on its way to a top speed of 193 mph. If required, it can all be sent to the rear axle.

When things need to come to a halt, carbon ceramic brakes ­– 16.5 inches in front, 15.3 inches out back – come standard. Twenty-two-inch wheels come standard; 23s are optional.

That said Aston Martin engineers have also tweaked the electronic damper and air spring calibrations.

Production is expected to start in the second quarter, with deliveries starting soon after that.
