2020 Aston Martin DB11 Review

The 2020 Aston Martin DB11 comes pretty close to being a textbook example of an exotic grand-touring car. Available as a coupe or convertible, the DB11 is stylish, comfortable, and fitted with one of two available engines that are well suited to the car's character. If you're looking for a high-class way to devour highway miles, the DB11 is an excellent tool for the job.

It's also decently practical by the standards of the class. There's a two-person back seat — albeit one that's really only suitable for small children — and a trunk that's larger than what you'll get in a Lamborghini Huracan or a McLaren GT. And while it's not as razor-sharp around turns as those cars, the DB11 is exceedingly enjoyable to drive quickly around corners. If we were tasked with taking a cross-country trip in any car, no matter the price, the DB11 would be pretty high on that list. 

Which DB11 does Edmunds recommend?

Some buyers may opt for the twin-turbocharged 5.2-liter V12 (and we wouldn't blame them), but we recommend going with the standard DB11 coupe with the V8. With 503 horsepower, the V8 is certainly robust. Plus, it'll make the DB11 a bit more fun and nimble in the corners. On top of the standard equipment, we'd opt for some of the optional tech and comfort features such as the heated and ventilated front seats, the Bang & Olufsen premium sound system, and blind-spot monitoring.

2020 Aston Martin DB11 models

The 2020 Aston Martin DB11 is available in three trim levels: Coupe, Convertible (Volante) and AMR. The Coupe and Convertible come standard with a turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 (503 hp, 513 lb-ft of torque), while the AMR (coupe only) comes with a turbocharged 5.2-liter V12 engine (630 hp, 516 lb-ft). All three use an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive.

Standard features on all three models are similar and include:

  • 20-inch wheels

    Aston Martin DB11 vs. the competition

    Aston Martin DB11 vs. Bentley Continental

    The Bentley Continental is opulence personified. Longer, wider and taller than the DB11, the Continental certainly has a presence all its own on the road, along with a bit more space and a similarly posh interior. It's also an excellent highway cruiser that offers two engines: a V8 and a V12.

    Aston Martin DB11 vs. Lamborghini Huracan

    If the DB11's fast-but-refined nature is a bit subdued for your tastes, something like the Lamborghini Huracan might be just right. Aggressively styled and relentlessly fast, the Huracan offers a naturally aspirated V10 and the incredible supercar soundtrack to go along with it. The Huracan doesn't offer the DB11's practicality, but it'll certainly put a smile on your face.

    Aston Martin DB11 vs. McLaren GT

    The McLaren GT is a bit of an odd duck in the grand-touring category. While the DB11 uses a 2+2 configuration, the GT is a two-seater with a mid-engine layout. As a result, the McLaren is significantly less practical than the DB11, but it's also faster and it may prove a bit more enjoyable to drive around a twisty mountain road.

    Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
