You'll notice that the 2025 Aston Martin DBX 707 remains untouched on the outside, but that's because what really counts is on the inside. The cabin of Aston's V8-powered super SUV has always been the center of criticism for an otherwise fantastic vehicle, and the remedy we've been anticipating has finally arrived. Following significant interior overhauls for the DB12 and refreshed Vantage, the automaker has given the DBX a similar treatment, which includes a revamped dashboard and center console, along with an entirely new infotainment system. Aside from the new interior, the powertrains, suspension, and exterior styling go on unchanged, though the standard DBX has been discontinued to leave the performance-oriented DBX 707 as the sole option.



Aston Martin has taken note of complaints over the years regarding the DBX's interior design and dated infotainment system, though executive chairman Lawrence Stroll says that owners were satisfied with just about everything else. Stroll made sure to address these misgivings with a complete redesign for the SUV's cabin, which comes with a revised dashboard and an all-new infotainment system developed in-house by Aston Martin. The dash fixes the scattered control layout that plagued the old model, and the new infotainment system finally moves to a touchscreen layout. The departure of the dreaded rotary controller leaves plenty of room in the center console, so it has been fully redesigned to match the new DB12 and Vantage. It now serves as a more organized home for the drive mode and climate controls, which have all taken the form of simpler physical buttons, and a more conventional console-mounted gear shifter replaces the weird dash-mounted array of buttons found in the old model. The automaker has also installed refreshed door cards, a more stylish steering wheel, and repositioned air vents.


At the center of the redesigned dashboard, a new 10.2-inch touchscreen runs Aston's new in-house system based on Linux. The cleaner UI/UX promises to be far more responsive than the laggy, outdated Mercedes-based system that spoiled the old DBX. But for those who would still prefer to mirror their smartphones, there is now support for wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.


Elsewhere, a pair of USB-C ports now lives between the front seats, and there is a newly-standard 14-speaker sound system. A fancier 23-speaker Bowers & Wilkins system remains optional.





Aside from the extensive interior updates, the automaker has announced that the regular DBX has been dropped from the lineup. That model offered a 542-hp version of the AMG-sourced twin-turbo 4.0 liter V8, and in some markets outside of the U.S. it also offered a six-cylinder hybrid. With the standard version gone for the 2025 model year, we are now left with the more powerful DBX 707, which features a punchier variant of the SUV's twin-turbo V8 tuned to deliver 697 hp. The name makes more sense in other markets, where that translates to 707 PS.


The powertrain featured in the DBX 707 receives no changes this year. A nine-speed automatic transmission from AMG still delivers power to all four wheels, and all of the hardware remains identical to last year's. One slight tweak has been made for the air springs and adaptive dampers, which get revised calibration to "increase transient body control."


Minor changes have been made to the exterior as well, but none of them will be picked up by the average onlooker. The 2025 model year brings a choice of five new paint options, and the side mirrors have been redesigned to include cameras for the new 3D parking display system. The flush door handles have also been reprogrammed to automatically open when the vehicle is unlocked.


Deliveries for the refreshed DBX 707 will begin sometime between May and June, though pricing has yet to be announced.
