Serving North Olmsted, OH
Few luxury vehicles compare to the Aston Martin Vantage of the Porsche 911. Both cars reign in their class for their performance and stunning aesthetics. When you’re comparing both cars to determine which one comes out on top, there are a few main features and specs to review.
With a twin-turbo V-8 engine, the 2019 Aston Martin Vantage doesn’t disappoint and is a car that wants to have a bit of fun on the road. The steering is exceptional and allows you to feel in control, and is also an adequate weight that doesn’t require too much force for each turn that is made. The pedals also respond well to a little pressure and don’t lag with following each command. With 503 horsepower, there isn’t much that the sports car isn’t capable of on the road. It can reach 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, which makes an excellent first impression when driving the vehicle. The vehicle also has the same powertrain that is used on the DB11 V8.
The razor-sharp handling of the Porsche 911 makes it a competitive vehicle that is fun to drive in any type of situation. Its horsepower ranges from 370 to 450 and proves to accelerate quickly without any delays. With a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that comes standard, the car has more power than necessary for every type of driving situation. Although agile handling and sharp steering are some of the perks of driving the car, the brakes aren’t sufficient when handling corners.
Once again, the Aston Martin proves to be a car that has exterior styling that is consistently good looking. The automaker manages to take a few risks without causing the styling to appear overly flashy or dramatic. The car debuts new architecture with the use of bonded aluminum panels and extrusions, creating a car that is impossible to miss on the highway. The rear makes a statement and sets the car apart from other luxury vehicles with raised LED taillights that curve upward and are connected, creating a seamless design that is cutting-edge. The grille stays true to its original shape and pair well with headlights that are now pushed out more.
The long hood on the Porsche 911 makes a statement and allows the car to stay true to its original design. Although there isn’t a lot to complain about, the car doesn’t have any notable features that make it stand out from the 2018 model compared to the striking design of the Aston Martin Vantage. Its oversized headlights and large air intakes on the front of the car look bold and make the car appear in charge.
Once stepping inside the new Aston Martin Vantage, it’s easy to see that the car now has an upgrade inside with an intuitive interface that is more advanced. On the center console, you’ll find a touch-sensitive pad and rotary knob for controlling the infotainment system. Additional features include a glass switchgear, an active park-assist system, heaters on seats that can be adjusted in 16 different ways, and blind-spot monitoring.
The Porsche 911 offers a driver-focused cockpit that offers onboard Wi-Fi, heated and ventilated front seats, a touchscreen infotainment system, leather upholstery, and power-adjustable seats. The seats prove to be comfortable for daily use but don’t offer as much support compared to the seats in the Aston Martin Vantage, which can be problematic for longer drives.
