When we take a look at the vehicles that Aston Martin brought in the past few years and even decades, we can say that they are one of the rare companies that managed always to offer fantastic looking models. This success story will be continued with new 2019 Aston Martin Vantage that is being prepared and is expected to go on sale during the first months of the next year.
The predecessor of this version has been on the market for 12 years, and it is incredible how fresh and attractive it still looks. As a result, there won’t be huge changes in terms of design while mechanically it will closely resemble the previous model. Just like before, this one will take the spot right under the DB11 and will be closer to a sports car than to a grand tourer.
2019 Aston Martin Vantage Design
Overall proportions remained the same, and we are getting that handsome body but with increased length and width. At the front, there is a famous company’s grille shape in combination with headlights that are now pushed farther out, and the power bulge on the hood clearly suggest that there is a beast under it, but this time there are no air vents on it. Without a doubt, this is one very attractive car and by looking at it from behind we can notice LED lights that are connected with a central light bar and aggressive rear diffuser. One of the things that the companies’ engineers are like to mention is the fact that they didn’t use any active wing but still managed to achieve incredible stability at high speeds.
Aston Martin Vantage Interior
The previous model was on the market for a long time, and that was noticeable with the number of gadgets it offered, or better say, didn’t offer, in the cabin. With the 2019 Aston Martin Vantage things are changing significantly and the carmaker decided to cooperate with Mercedes and borrow some electronic-related solutions.
Things that will be familiar to you, if you monitor what Mercedes is doing in their cars, include rotary knob used to set everything related to infotainment system and is located on the center console, but also the lever that is used for both turn signals and wiper controls.
Even with all these features borrowed from the German company it still feels like a true Aston Martin as it offers high-quality leather and carbon accents. Seating position is great as always, and a high beltline is something that is a trademark of the brand.
2019 Aston Martin Vantage Specs
Incredible looks need to be supplemented with capable powertrain, and we are getting V8 that is known from DB11 and sourced from AMG. This 4.0-liter V8 powerplant has been slightly modified to fit 2019 Aston Martin Vantage, and it received few minor software changes. As a result, we are getting 503 hp and 498 pound-feet of torque, and when you put this into a 3373-pounds body that comes equipped with weight saving features, it is bound to be fast. According to the company, 0 to 60 mph sprint is done in 3.5 seconds, and it will reach a top speed of 195 mph.
Since the engine is quite compact in terms of size, it is possible to set it slightly farther back and achieve 50:50 weight distribution. Another thing that helps out with good performance figures is the fact that the new automatic transmission will be used. It is the eight-speed ZF that comes as a replacement for the not so great Speedtronic unit. If you want the manual transmission we have good news as the CEO of Aston, Andy Palmer announced that the seven-speed manual gearbox will be offered.

One of the things that will allow the 2019 Aston Martin Vantage to be good in corners just like on the straight is the electronically controlled locking differential. This upgrade allows for a faster reaction when compared to standard mechanical limited-slip diff. Aston claims that the new model will be even better than the already great DB11 V8 version.
