2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Interior
Opening the door accesses an inspiring light cabin bathed in exquisite leather that is sewn together gently. Just start the car offers some ceremony, while sliding the “key” command glass ornaments in the center of the board and trigger a sequence of evocative power. The controls are well located in a center console with glass face that uses sensors under the symbols printed control, while a system of subtle haptic feedback sensation simulates button and recognizes commands.
On closer inspection, however, some less desirable elements tempered the initial brightness. The emerging information screen is cheap, even by the standards of luxury cars and entry-level rises some cells directly from Volvo. Some switches and knobs are downright weak, prone to fall into the hand as was the case of our test car Vanquish. The infotainment menus, however, are relatively easy to navigate through a central command controller. Unlike most exotic or luxury cars, the Vanquish has actually usable trunk space that accommodates up to 13 cubic feet of cargo. In the USA, there is additional space on a shelf behind the front seats. Buyers can replace the platform with two seats, but we would caution against any human to submit those narrow confines.
