Scorecard

Interior: 7.8

Auto critics find the Vantage's two-passenger cabin is both classy and elegant. Best of all, it's highly customizable. With Aston Martin's personalization program, owners can choose from a wide range of color/material combinations that'll truly make it one of a kind.

  • "[T]he V8 Vantage features a high-class cabin truly befitting its lofty price tag and its celebrated Aston Martin badge." -- Edmunds
  • "The moment you sweep open the V8 Vantage's "swan wing" doors, you know you're about to climb into something special. The Vantage's interior, generously swathed with soft leather and buttery Alcantara, was put together with great care. It's sumptuous." -- Popular Mechanics
  • "The interior is hand-assembled and hand-finished in a manner that one would expect from a high-end British sports car, and yet the V8 Vantage costs substantially less than the Gallardo Spyder or the Bentley Continental GTC." -- Automobile Magazine
  • "Everything -- as reviewers are wont to say -- falls readily to hand, with few of the ergonomic nightmares that often befall the limited production sports car." -- Kelley Blue Book

Seating

The Vantage offers seating for two. While most test drivers agree that its seats are comfortable, many warn that they're no place for large occupants.

  • "As befitting a sports car, seats are enveloping and in conjunction with the well placed steering wheel and pedals, provide an optimum driving position." - AutoMiddleEast.com
  • "[W]e found the seats comfortable yet extraordinarily supportive, even under the most aggressive driving." -- BusinessWeek
  • "Space for most drivers is adequate, but larger occupants may find the seat and footwell too narrow." -- Edmunds

Interior Features

Though the Vantage features a long list of standard features -- including leather upholstery, Organic Electroluminescent displays, and a 160-watt Aston Martin audio system with six-disc changer -- test drivers complain that it's still lacking some basic conveniences.

  • "Big thumbs up for the beefy steering wheel, the jewel-like gauges (including a tachometer that winds in the wrong direction), the raised stitch leather, the well-bolstered seat, the alcantara headliner and the exquisite sound system." -- Automobile Magazine
  • "British cars are known for their eccentricities, and one of the V8 Vantage roadster's is its tachometer needle, which swings counterclockwise as the rpms rise." -- Cars.com
  • "The center stack has been completely redesigned with more attractive and easier-to-use climate and audio controls, while the optional navigation system is all-new and hard-drive-based for faster processing." -- Edmunds
