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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
