Overview of the Aston Martin Vanquish

Learn about the Aston Martin Vanquish

Summary

The Aston Martin Vanquish is a luxury grand touring fastback coupe and convertible. The first generation of models was produced from 2001 to 2007, and the second generation began in 2013 with the added Aston Martin Vanquish Volante convertible model. Its six-figure price tag and beautiful styling make this model a rare breed. With a beastly V12 engine and up to 603 horsepower, the Aston Martin Vanquish is one powerful machine. Its interior finishes exude luxurious British styling without being too flashy. This is the type of car designed for drivers who appreciate sophistication.

Safety

Drivers looking for advanced safety features should focus their search on the latest generation of Aston Martin Vanquish models. First-generation models were equipped with standard safety specs, like front and side airbags and parking sensors. Second-generation models are better stocked with safety features, such as a rearview camera and additional pelvis and thorax airbags. Rear-wheel drive (RWD) is the standard power train, so driving this model through snowy conditions may be a bit challenging.

Interior

The Aston Martin Vanquish wins full marks for interior design and comfort. Decked out in premium-quality materials and comfort-driven features, this model is impressive from the inside out. Supple leather seats and upholstery are sewn together with contrasting stitching, and the generous centre dashboard gives the front row a cockpit-feel. Standard interior features include:

  • Heated power seats with lumbar support
  • Steering wheel controls
  • Cruise control

Drivers who are looking to invest in a brand-new model can select design packages that let them choose interior upholstery and trim colours.

Technology

The first generation of the Aston Martin Vanquish was equipped with a multi-CD changer and subwoofer (since 2003). Drivers could connect via a hands-free phone system and listen to their music through 10 surround-sound speakers. The new generation of Aston Martin Vanquish models include:

  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto (since 2017)
  • USB port
  • Navigation system

To start the ignition, a crystal keyholder is placed in the centre dashboard, which immediately starts the engine at a roar.

Space

The coupe is a two-seater, and the Aston Martin Vanquish Volante model features two back seats. These rear seats can feel cramped for taller passengers, so they are better suited for extra storage. Compared to other vehicles in its class, cargo space is limited for both the coupe and convertible. Still, the Aston Martin Vanquish lavishes front-seat passengers with plenty of space to get comfortable. Passengers of every height and size will appreciate the amount of leg and headroom.

Comfort

There's no shortage of power and performance in the Aston Martin Vanquish. That said, despite the V12 engine's power, some drivers feel that other models in its class have outperformed it. Both the grand touring coupe and convertible are perfectly suited for relaxed journeys along winding roads as they are barrelling down the highway at rapid acceleration. The tell-tale noises of the exhaust and beastly engine roar inside the vehicle. The driving experience feels agile and grippy around sharp corners.
