What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For The Vantage offers strong performance, superb handling and stunning looks to match

Against It's immensely thirsty, there are no curtain airbags and side visibility is poor

Verdict The Vantage is almost as good to drive as the Porsche 911, but far more exclusive

Go for… 4.3 V8

Avoid… Not applicable

Aston Martin Vantage Coupe
  • 1. Be sure you can live with the poor vision to the side
  • 2. Interior build quality is the best on any Aston, so you shouldn't experience any problems
  • 3. Practicality is reasonable with space for two golf bags in the boot
  • 4. Cars built between October 2005 and May 2006 were recalled because of a starting problem
  • 5. Check the six-speed manual gearbox works perfectly - and the clutch, too
