Ahead of a 2024 Australian arrival, the 2025 Aston Martin Vantage has been revealed with new styling, a new dashboard and an uprated twin-turbocharged petrol V8 engine. As with the larger DB12 revealed last year, the new Vantage is not all-new, rather a heavy facelift of the current model, but promises to be a big improvement over the current model in all ways, according to the brand.

Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer, Amedeo Felisa, said: “As we enter a period of pivotal change in the world of high-performance cars it is essential to remain true to those qualities upon which a legendary marque has been built. Any car bearing the Vantage name has much to live-up to, which is why this newest model makes an unwavering commitment to high-performance in its purest and most explicit form.”

“Class-leading power and speed establish its credentials, but it is through expert application of the latest technologies to the Vantage’s perfectly balanced front-engine rear-drive chassis that we have created a sports car with addictive capability. Together with assertive styling, all-new interior and state-of-the-art infotainment, Vantage is world-class in every respect”.     

The exterior of the 2025 Aston Martin Vantage appears to be similar to the current model, though there have been changes like having been widened by 30mm. The front end has taken the majority of the styling changes with a 38 per cent larger grille and new headlights with Matrix technology.

There are new wheel designs up to 21-inches in size with ‘AML’ coded Michelin Pilot Sport S 5 tyres, air intakes on either side as well, and a new front splitter – plus new wheel arch vents, frameless door mirrors, door handles that pop out and a new rear bumper with larger exhaust pipes. The tailights feature new graphics, while there are now even more exterior options to choose from thanks to three new livery options for buyers to choose from.

Inside the 2025 Aston Martin Vantage has seen a larger upgrade with a new dashboard layout with a new 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay, inbuilt navigation and even a new Aston Martin smartphone app for live services through the car’s inbuilt eSIM. The screen is larger than before and there are still a whole host of physical buttons for various settings.

Ahead of the driver is a new 12.3-inch digital display, while there is also a new steering wheel. The standard sound system is a 390-watt 11-speaker system with a 1,170-watt 15-speaker Bowers and Wilkins system on the options list. Safety features include auto emergency braking (AEB), adaptive cruise control with stop and go functionality, lane keep assist and a 360-degree camera.

Under the bonnet of the 2025 Aston Martin Vantage is the same 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine sourced from AMG, but its outputs have increased to 489kW and 800Nm – a big increase on the already healthy 375kW/685Nm outputs that the current model pumps out. The claimed 0-100km/h sprint time is just 3.4 seconds – a 0.2 second improvement on the current model – and its top speed is 325km/h. As before, the Vantage uses an eight-speed automatic transmission and power is sent to the rear wheels.

The 2025 Aston Martin Vantage has also seen upgrades in the ride and handling department with improved body stiffness thanks to a repositioned front cross-member for better steering feel, a stiffer and lighter front engine brace, more strengthening between the rear suspension, retuned electric power steering, new generation adaptive dampers, a new electronic limited-slip differential and a more intuitive electronic stability control system with eight settings.

The 2025 Aston Martin Vantage will go on sale sometime this year, with local pricing to be confirmed soon. Stay tuned to DiscoverAuto for the latest automotive news and reviews.
