Overview of the Aston Martin Vantage

Learn about the Aston Martin Vantage

Summary

The Aston Martin Vantage coupe and convertible is a luxury sports car with two very powerful engine options and unique styling. Due to its limited production run, it's rare to see this car on the road. Available since 2006 with optional V8 and V12 engines, the Aston Martin Vantage is sleek, powerful and the epitome of British design. Its exclusivity can make it expensive to service, especially if you don't live close to a dealership. The 2019 Aston Martin Vantage has been completely redesigned and is equipped with a Mercedes-AMG engine.

Safety

The standard safety features of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage have evolved since its initial 2006 release. Standard safety options on the first release year include front and rear airbags and available parking sensors. By the end of the first generation release, a rearview camera and emergency alert services also became standard. The 2019 Aston Martin Vantage includes blind-spot monitoring and a 360-degree camera to improve visibility. Drivers can even opt for an Aston Martin-branded first aid kit.

Interior

Throughout its career, the Aston Martin Vantage has delivered on luxury British styling with high-end finishes and designer materials. Leather covers the steering wheel, dash and shift knob. Leather seats are standard on all models with optional faux-suede upgrades. The number of seat power adjustments differ every few years. For instance, the 2006 model offers 10-way power-adjustable seating, while the 2016 model only offers 8 adjustments. Buying a brand-new model allows you to personalize practically every interior surface, including stitching and seatbelt colours.

Technology

The new 2019 Aston Martin Vantage comes with plenty of standard technology, but older versions lack some features that are automatically included in other models in its class. Bluetooth connectivity has been available on base models since 2008. Other technical highlights:

  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto (available since 2017)
  • Satellite navigation system
  • Bang & Olufsen audio system (available since 2010)
  • Auxiliary and USB inputs (available since 2007)
  • 8-inch LCD infotainment system (standard on 2019 models)

Space

In 2007, the Aston Martin Vantage added the roadster body to its lineup. Both the coupe and the convertible have enough seating for the driver and one extra passenger. For its class, the seats are spacious and offer ample head and legroom for even taller-than-average passengers. The convertible naturally has less cargo space than the coupe to make room for the soft-top roof when it's being stowed. Models released from 2006 to 2010 have narrower footwells and seats than later releases. Overall, the Aston Martin Vantage offers plenty of space for sports car driving needs.

Comfort

The Aston Martin Vantage is a superior sports car with excellent handling and powerful acceleration. From 2014 to 2017, drivers had the opportunity to select a V12 engine, which is quite rare for a street-legal car. The V12, however, is not as comfortable a ride as the V8. It may not be designed for practicality, but the V8 is a smooth and agile drive that can be used as an everyday car. The roaring engine sound of the beastly engine can be heard inside the cabin but there's no doubt that this is a robust and powerful vehicle.

  • Powerful V8 and V12 engine options
