We get the first interior photo of the new Aston Martin DBX SUV - due to debut on 20 November - and a price for Aston's Bentayga competitor.

Aston Martin says it has developed the DBX to meet the needs of the 99th percentile male to the 5th percentile female, meaning it is aiming to present a very broad set of skills and attractions, for a wide target audience.

Efforts to make the DBX - built at Aston Martin's new 90-acre production facility in St Athan, South Wales - have rightly been extremely thorough. The decision to use an all-new platform and its longer wheelbase allowed designers to optimize cabin space while keeping the low roofline. In fact, Aston said the driver's seating position allows a clear and unperturbed view of the vehicle's bonnet. Fundamentally, DBX offers a cabin that gives the driver an instant and relaxed confidence, yet offers the promise of dynamic performance to reward the most discerning driver.

The dashboard accentuates the feeling of space and luxury in DBX. 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". The company says it has integrated the screen in a way which minimises any interruption of flow and elegance.

In the press release, Aston calls attention to the DBX's bridged centre console, something not shown in the lone interior photo. This feature keeps valuables close to hand while not occupying the passenger seat and away from dirt on the car's floor mats.

The firm claims it has created an SUV with class-leading front and rear legroom, and even invited children to sit in the back of a development model to gauge their reaction. Sports auto packaging methodologies and technical solutions have enabled significant benefits to DBX.

Images of the all-new model's interior were revealed by Aston Martin today as the iconic British sports vehicle brand prepares for the arrival of the key new model which it hopes will help stem its current losses and provide a vital new revenue stream.
