Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 16 - 22 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Residual values are class leading due to the limited number of Vantages being built and the high demand. There is a significant options list that includes sat nav, which on premium cars at this level should really be standard. Running costs are, of course, significant due to its performance nature and specialist skills required to service the car. Fuel economy is an average of just 16mpg.

With its large 4.3-litre V8 petrol engines and an average fuel consumption figure of just 17mpg, it’s no surprise that the Vantage gets a rock-bottom eco score. It emits 358g/km CO2, which although average for a high performance coupe, is exceptionally poor compared to the average family car. A Mondeo will typically emit about 180g/km CO2.

Modern day Aston Martins are hand-built and also use the very latest technology. The Vantage is assembled in the purpose-built, modern factory at Gaydon in Warwickshire with strict quality controls and had a very extensive development programme so the model should prove very reliable. However, we still hear of teething problems with cars when they should have been sorted out.
