Our overall rating:
Few car manufacturers can claim to have a brand as strong as Aston Martin. It’s consistently voted one of the UK’s coolest brands by the public and, well, James Bond had one. That settles that, then.
Yet, while its cars have always looked superb and sounded even better, it wasn’t really until the DB11 was launched in 2017 that Aston Martin cars had a drive to match those sleek lines.
The Vantage is the firm’s entry-level sports car, but the previous generation didn’t handle or ride as well as it should have done. This latest model has a new engine, new suspension and new underpinnings, so with Aston Martin’s renewed vigour there’s every chance that it could be a huge improvement.
Aston Martin sees the 911 as its main competitor, and we’d agree – so read on over the next few pages to find out if Porsche should be worried. We’ll tell you what the Vantage is like to drive, what it’s like inside and how much it’ll cost to run.
