Head Restraints
The driver and front passenger seats include non-adjustable head restraints, which limit the rearward travel of the head in a rear impact and may reduce whip lash injuries. The rear seat head restraints are adjustable and removable. When sitting in the seats make sure that the seat back is in an upright position and that the rear of the occupant’s head is positioned in the center of the head restraint area. The head restraints are most effective when the distance between the rear of the occupant’s head and the head restraint is kept to a minimum.Aston Martin DBX 2021 Checks Before Driving and Windows User Manual 02

Door Sealing

Make sure that all passengers are clear when the window mechanism is operating. To minimize wind noise and to make sure that the window seal is watertight, a door sealing system is used to provide a tight fit of the door glass to the seals around the top of the door opening. The window automatically lowers a small distance to clear the door seal when a door is opened. When the door is closed, the window automatically lifts against the body frame rubber seals.

Window Anti-Trap
The door windows use an anti-trap mechanism to prevent accidental closure of a window on vulnerable parts of the body or other obstructions. When the window motor sense an obstruction, the window stops closing and then opens to release the obstruction.
