Intro

The Aston Martin Vanquish is going out for good, with one last model, based on the V12 Aston has been using for the last two decades. While most of its architecture has long since been replaced, the exclusivity of it remains and can’t be matched by their models. As always, Aston remains true to classic designs, and unlike most current manufacturers, does not bother quieting their engines down. Instead, they deliver a loud, angry engine that fans of classic cars will appreciate. So, let’s take a closer look at the 2017 Aston Martin Vanquish S.

Exterior

The 2017 Aston Martin Vanquish S falls into the same vein of style as previous models from the line. The changes to the design have been few, but have a larger effect related to the grand design. The spring rates have been stiffened, the rear anti-roll bar is brawnier, and the suspension bushings are firmer. Yet, it does not come off as too bulky or hard. Instead, it not only looks but also feels incredibly smooth with a softer reaction to bumps and accurate steering responses.

Interior

As with its exterior, the 2017 Aston Martin Vanquish S sticks to its classic design of a hand-finished cabin with beautiful, elegant materials, distracting from the lack of equipment and the considerably small interior, in strong contrast to the big exterior, although it is available both as a 2- and 4-seater, 2-door coupe or convertible. One thing that requires getting used to for new Aston drivers, is the squared-off steering wheel. The leather seats are comfortable. However, the very obvious stitch-design might be off-putting for some people.

Features

As most Astin’s, the features are few. The 2017 Aston Martin Vanquish S has no adaptive cruise, blind-spot monitoring, or automated emergency braking. Perhaps something that fans of classic cars and classic driving without much to play with might appreciate, but considering the price and performance could have been included. On the other hand, the navigation system has been updated, although it still hardly to be considered up-to-date. All in all, it is a good vehicle but not putting in a lot of features makes sense considering the line is coming to an end.
