There’s plenty of adjustment to the superbly supportive driver’s seat, so you should have few issues finding a comfortable driving position. Forward visibility is fine, but the rear window is miniscule, which makes reversing a matter of faith with the roof up – although you do get rear parking sensors to help out. The minor dashboard switches are small and difficult to read, and the infotainment system is fiddly.
Aston Martin DB9 Volante space & practicality
The DB9 Volante retains the back seats of the DB9 coupe, but don’t go thinking these can comfortably accommodate people. With a couple of average-sized adults up front, rear legroom is virtually non-existent. You’re better off using the space for luggage that the smallish boot can’t swallow.
Aston Martin DB9 Volante equipment
Climate control, powered front-seat adjustment, sat-nav, leather upholstery and a terrific stereo are all standard, but that’s not exactly generous given how much the car costs. For a price, Aston Martin will happily customise the car with any extra you can think of.
