Matrix LED headlamps, Aston Martin’s new light signature, make an appearance on the new Vantage while new 21-inch alloy wheels and new side vents further heighten the sports car’s muscular stance.

Aston Martin hasn’t skimped on engineering at its rear either, as larger and more dramatic quad exhaust tailpipes add to its strapping physique.

“One look and you know it packs a real punch, but there’s an elegance of form and proportion that hints at the sophistication that underpins its raw power. This balance of instant visual impact and slow-burn charisma mirrors the driving experience and perfectly captures the essence of Vantage,” said Aston Martin’s chief creative officer Marek Reichman.

Inside, the cockpit has been given a comprehensive overhaul with a new centre console, a new state-of-the-art infotainment touchscreen, a single instrument display that replaces the old three-gauge digital cluster, and a single gear selection lever that supplants the Aston’s former pushbuttons – an Aston Martin Signature that has since been adopted by other mass brands.

And while the automotive industry appears to be moving towards a stripped down, almost austere interior devoid of knobs and buttons as everything gets digitalised, it’s somewhat comforting to see Aston Martin maintain a certain analogue allure that only adds to the new Vantage’s charm.
