Which Vantage does Edmunds recommend?

There are no trim levels to choose from, and nearly everything on the Vantage's options list is centered around appearance items. And that list is long. Among the few available functional options, though, you'll want the Comfort Collection and Tech Collection packages to secure some features that you might think would be standard.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

The Vantage nameplate has a history that stretches back nearly seven decades. Early on, it denoted high-performance versions of certain models; it wasn't until the 1970s that the Vantage badge became a model in its own right. Since then, the Vantage has become Aston Martin's best-selling model ever.

Now we have the redesigned 2019 Aston Martin Vantage. Sharper, more aggressive and much more expensive than its predecessor, the latest Vantage promises to thrill and engage like no Vantage before it. Technology helps — it comes standard with variable dampers and is the first Aston Martin offered with an electronically controlled differential, which can influence handling even as it facilitates traction. Inside, the Mercedes-Benz-sourced infotainment system is a big leap forward from what Aston Martin had used.

Aston also partnered with Mercedes to come up with the new Vantage's engine. Under the hood is a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 that's closely related to the one in Mercedes' AMG GT, a car with which the Vantage competes head-on. The realities of modern automaking make for strange bedfellows, but we won't complain about the results. The new engine cranks out a stout 503 horsepower and 505 pound-feet of torque.

The new Vantage also sees the automaker actively embracing a younger demographic. It's available in some vivid paint hues, some of which are downright eyeball-searing. It's all edges and creases and aggression, though the overall impact is positively striking. A staid, reserved Aston Martin this new Vantage is not. If the Acura NSX seems too tech-focused for you and the Porsche 911 is too familiar, this new Aston could be ideal.

2019 Aston Martin Vantage models

The good news is that selecting from the Vantage's available trim levels is easy because there's only one. After that, things get more complex. The Vantage's list of optional equipment is staggeringly long, and the overwhelming majority of items are appearance-related.

All Vantages are powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that generates 503 horsepower and 505 pound-feet of torque. Likewise, the only transmission available is an eight-speed automatic with paddle shifters, and all Vantages are equipped with an electronically controlled differential and adaptive dampers. Three drive modes — Sport, Sport Plus and Track — tailor the calibrations of the differential, dampers, stability control, and steering effort in increasing levels of aggression.

Other standard equipment highlights include 20-inch wheels, leather and simulated-suede upholstery, power-adjustable seats, automatic climate control, and the Mercedes-Benz-based infotainment system with an 8-inch display.

There are only a few options for convenience-based upgrades. These include the Sports Plus Collection package, consisting of revised seats and steering wheel; the Tech Collection package, with keyless entry, blind-spot monitoring, a parking assistance function, touchpad, and glass switches; and the Comfort Collection package, which offers 16-way adjustable heated seats.

Ultimately, configuring a Vantage is a very personal process and an aspect of Vantage ownership that separates it from the pack. The level of cosmetic customization is bewildering. One can tailor the materials and appearance of a vast array of the car's interior and exterior features, all the way down to your choice of 10 brake caliper colors and six seat-belt colors. Alternatively, you can choose one of six preconfigured Designer Specifications, which bundle elements into a single package that exhibits a distinct aesthetic.

Trim tested

Edmunds has not yet driven any version of this vehicle. The following is our first take on what's significant about it and what you can expect.

Driving

The Vantage's newly aggressive body suggests speed and poise, while a potent 503-horsepower twin-turbo V8 delivers on the promise. Aston says it'll do 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds. Its aerodynamics have been tailored to limit lift at speed, so expect this Vantage to move like no other before it.

Comfort

Various leather, synthetic-suede and seat choices promise that there's likely a combination to suit your fancy. Its adaptive dampers imply that it'll be reasonably supple on lumpy pavement yet still facilitate rapid changes of direction.

Interior

Though strictly a two-seater, there's a decent amount of room inside for full-size Americans. It's trimmed in premium materials and, while somewhat busy-looking, it achieves the desired effect of looking and feeling suitably expensive.

Utility

In-cabin storage consists of two-tiered regions behind the seats, suitable for briefcases or handbags. The main cargo area beneath the hatchback will swallow up to 12.4 cubic feet, which is not bad for a car in this class.

Technology

An 8-inch touchscreen handles the infotainment duties, and its bones are powered by Mercedes-Benz, which bodes well for functionality. Bluetooth, navigation and USB ports are standard.

Consumer reviews

There are no consumer reviews for the Used 2019 Aston Martin Vantage.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Aston Martin Vantage?

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.
