Although the exterior styling will not be revealed until the car's global launch event in Beijing, China, on November 20, Aston Martin has given a glimpse of the car's interior. The latest is a sneak peek into the luxurious and commodious interior along with specific pricing information for all key markets.

Being an Aston Martin though, luxury and elegance is just as important as speed.

That leads us to the next big bit of news from Aston Martin, and that's the starting price for the DBX, which - and there's no getting around this - is a lot.

In other markets, the DBX commands £159,000 in the United Kingdom, ¥22,995,000 in Japan, €193,500 in Germany, and CN¥2,378,000 in China. In the meantime, the company treats us to the first photo of the vehicle interior. As expected from a luxury SUV, all touch surfaces are covered in fine leather, metal, and Alcantara.

Julien Brunel, automotive sector specialist at management consultancy, Vendigital, said in an AM "guest opinion" piece that Aston Martin's hopes of achieving 4,000 annual DBX sales to boost its fortunes would not be easy.

Aston says it spent six months alone refining the driver's position within the vehicle to ensure the best visibility inside and out. Aston Martin said the design team made sure the rear occupants are not leaning over the driver and front passenger - the result of conventional stadium seating arrangements in ordinary SUVs. In a "new exercise" for the automaker, Aston invited a group of children to test rear-seat ergonomics. There's also a huge, full-length glass roof and broad side windows, and we're told - but offered no concrete measurements - of class-leading front and rear legroom, and an abundance of space throughout.

Reportedly weighing 2245kg, the DBX sits on a long wheelbase that helped to free up room inside. Laying out the interior buttons required "external counsel, including the brand's Female Advisory Board, and multiple customer clinics with HNWIs [high-net-worth individuals] of mixed demographic". And it ain't cheap, but you knew that, because it's an Aston Martin. According to the company, it's "an elegant, floating aesthetic that offers storage space below for larger items". Addressing this issue is a new bridged center console. Think handbag or 1.5-litre water bottles.

The new Aston Martin DBX is riding on an all-new bespoke aluminum platform. With more power than a V8-equipped Vantage or DB11, the DBX remains a proper five-door sports auto, albeit in an SUV guise.

To start with, the interior of the Aston Martin DBX is flat-out gorgeous.
