2023 Aston Martin Vantage Review, Pricing, and Specifications


Few cars mix beauty and driver’s delight quite like the 2023 Aston Martin Vantage. In both coupe and convertible form, it casts a striking silhouette in its couture-inspired suite of impeccably pressed sheetmetal. Most models are powered by a twin-turbo V-8 making over 500 horsepower, while some lucky buyers will end up with an even more powerful twin-turbo V-12. No matter the powertrain, the Vantage impresses with an athletic chassis, lively handling and explosive acceleration – not to mention some of the sweetest exhaust notes available today. The interior is comfortable and can be customized with several high-end options, though we have one complaint: a lack of luxury for the Vantage’s six-figure price tag. Still, with styling this attractive and tricks this exciting, the Vantage is a highly desirable driver’s car with a prestigious heritage.

What’s new for 2023?

A V-12 engine returns to the Vantage lineup for 2023 and is a big part of the powerplant, featuring twin-turbocharging and 690 horsepower. The twin-turbo V-12 will be offered in both coupé and convertible Vantage models, along with a special aerodynamics package for more downforce. Aston claims a 3.4-second zero-to-60-mph time, which may be conservative. Unfortunately, the order book for this specific model is already closed, and only 333 will be produced.

Pricing and Which One to Buy

V-12 Coupe


Choosing between the Vantage Coupe and Convertible is difficult. The hardtop is better for structural rigidity, but the softtop version lets us feel the wind in our hair—and better appreciate the Aston’s scintillating engine notes. Ultimately, we think the amount of money we’ll save by choosing the Coupe will sway our final decision. Plus, that money will let us personalize our solace with the myriad indoor and outdoor treatments offered. We also opt for heated and ventilated front seats to help keep our backsides heated or cooled on demand, but we’ll pass on the carbon ceramic brakes.

Engine, Transmission and Performance

Under the Vantage’s clamshell hood is either a thrilling, roaring twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 or a twin-turbo 5.2-liter V-12 monster. The base V-8 engine develops either 503 or 528 horsepower and 505 pound-feet of torque. The high output V-8 is reserved for the track-inspired F1 version. The V-12 engine makes 690 horsepower, and Aston claims it’s good for a 3.4-second zero-to-60-mph time—but we think that’s a conservative estimate. We drove F1 on track and discovered a meaningfully faster driving experience and recorded a 3.5-second sprint to 60 mph. The Vantage’s V-8 sounds beautiful, starting with a low baritone rumble and ending with a high-pitched screech as it nears its redline. An electronically controlled limited-slip differential and adaptive dampers are standard. The Vantage’s handling is lively but predictable, which makes it Hilarious Good Fun on the Race Track, The suspension is compliant enough for daily-driver duty, though harsh bumps will be apparent to passengers no matter which drive mode is selected thanks to the adaptive dampers. Unfortunately, the optional carbon-ceramic brakes are less amicable during daily driving. While they’re excellent for track duty, the upgraded brakes are too flimsy for everyday use. we did Get behind the wheel of the Vantage RoadsterAdmires her look-at-me personality as well as her ability to behave like an athlete and a lounger.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

The Vantage isn’t as thirsty for fuel as its powerful V-8 engine might suggest, at least not when equipped with an automatic transmission. The EPA estimates that the Vantage will earn 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. We haven’t given up on our 75-mph highway fuel economy route, which is part of Our Comprehensive Test Rules, so we can’t evaluate its real-world mpg.

Interior, Comfort & Cargo

The exterior theatrics continues inside with upscale materials and countless custom options. It’s easy to spend money on the Vantage: Aston Martin offers fancy options like full-leather interior, heated and ventilated seats, carbon-fiber steering wheel, embroidered headrests, and many different options for interior trim, among many other features. The cockpit is fine for two people, but it’s lined with leather and faux suede. Likewise, sport seats with power adjustments and memory settings are standard. Still, its luxury feel is let down by poor noise isolation on the highway. Interior cubby storage is also scarce except for a shallow center-console bin and door pockets. The convertible’s electric fabric roof folds up and down quickly, and features a Z shape that Aston says helps save trunk space. While the Vantage Roadster has a slightly smaller trunk than the Coupe, we’re told it’s still able to fit a full-sized golf bag.

Infotainment & Connectivity

An 8.0-inch display sprouts from the top of its dashboard and is controlled primarily via a rotary knob and buttons on the center console. The Vantage’s infotainment system also includes an Aston Martin audio system, Bluetooth compatibility, and built-in navigation. While an upgraded audio system and touchpad are optional, popular features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration are absent.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

Although Aston doesn’t offer the full suite driver-assistance technologyThe Vantage can be equipped with several safety features. For more information on the Vantage’s crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHSWebsites. Key security features include:

  • Available 360-degree camera systems
  • Available blind-spot monitoring
  • Self-parking assistance available

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

  • Limited warranty includes three years or unlimited miles
  • Powertrain warranty includes three years or unlimited miles
  • no complimentary scheduled maintenance
