2017 Aston Martin Vantage vs. Its Competition

2017 Aston Martin Vantage
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Aston Martin Vantage doesn't chase spec sheet numbers like many others in its class.

Instead, it relies on its heritage and relative exclusivity to attract customers.

The Maserati GranTurismo is captivating in its own way, with an equally intoxicating exhaust note of its own.

The Corvette also outpoints the Vantage on a spec sheet in terms of raw numbers, but its new styling still falls short of the Vantages' timeless looks and can't carry the same tune.

Porsche's 911 is our pick based on its approachability and driveability, but it won't have the same exclusivity as the much lower-volume Vantage.

The 2017 Chevrolet Corvette antes up stunning performance and great features; we're mixed on its boy-racer looks.
7.8
The 2017 Porsche 911 is a toe into the waters of modernity with a base turbo engine that gets good fuel economy. Don't be fooled; it's every bit the super car it always has been.
7.4
The 2017 Maserati GranTurismo is getting old but its Ferrari-inspired performance and sensuous styling and still appealing.
