The supportive leather seat is electrically adjustable and the steering wheel adjusts two ways, so you should be able to find a comfortable driving position. Vision is decent to the front and rear, but angled junctions are another matter – you have to lean forward to see if anything is coming. The stereo and sat-nav systems aren’t user-friendly at all, so can be distracting to use while driving.
Aston Martin Vantage space & practicality
The Vantage is a two-seater, unlike the rival Porsche 911, which has two (albeit small) rear seats. However, the 300-litre boot is big enough for a couple of sets of golf clubs, and there’s a foldaway parcel shelf. You can fit more luggage behind the front seats, too. The cabin is snug – occupants sit well towards the centre of the car – and there’s not much space for oddments.
Aston Martin Vantage equipment
Leather upholstery, climate control, rear parking sensors, electrically folding door mirrors, a six-disc CD changer, USB connection and big alloy wheels come as standard. Options include premium hi-fi systems and various interior finishes, but Aston’s personalisation programme means you can effectively have your Vantage however you want it.
