We have received information that the 2019 Aston Martin Vanquish S model is receiving a facelift. This news was confirmed at the Los Angeles Auto Show where the model was displayed and showcased with the given changes, but it will still take some time for the actual production models to be released. The release date will most likely be in 2018 but there is no better time to display a new model than now.
This is currently the second-generation model of the Vanquish brand and it made its debut in 2012. It was introduced to replace the then current DBS V12 model and this way they were able to revive their old nameplate which lasted from 2001 till 2007. The second-generation car was inspired both by the One 77 styling and also by the DBS car, so we can view it as a spiritual successor of the latter model.
Since the inception of the second-generation car, the Vanquish has received two facelifts. This one will mainly concentrate on the Vanquish S badge which is always introduced as an expansion of the model. The S badge is a necessary part of the lineup as it offers a high performance version to go with the base one. They are continuing with this brand by using advanced engineering for it and also a lot of all-carbon fiber bodywork and compelling styling additions. Aston Martin wants to give an expanded option to its buyers and by giving the S badge they are doing the most useful thing that they could.
The 2019 Aston Martin Vanquish S is supposed to be the latest addition to the roster of Aston Martin cars and is supposed to go nicely with the DB11 model. They are planning a completely new tourer model which will come after this one and will replace the current cars as the new face of Aston Martin, but that is a story for another time. Here in this review where you can see the latest pictures released and find out more information about the 2019 Aston Martin Vanquish S model and its properties.
When will the 2019 Aston Martin Vanquish S get its Release Date?
As far as we know, the 2019 Aston Martin Vanquish S will make its debut in 2018. The showcasing of the car was made at the LA Autos Show and apart from the pictures this was the first time we have seen this car in person. The indication is that the model will be available for sale in 2018, or at least at the very start of the year is pretty good and makes a lot of people happy. The expansion of Aston Martin’s Vanquish brand with an S badge a representation of the company’s effort and the way they are making their cars. Aston Martin will bring their new models soon and this one will be a good start as it will show how well and how seriously Aston Martin is preparing for the new season.
The Price List for the Car
The newest price list for the 2019 Aston Martin Vanquish S will be a little bigger than the current one. The news about the price is not still officially released and it was stated that the model will have a 3% increase, pitting it to a base MSRP rating of1 $294,950, for the US market. The price in the UK will be offered at £199,950 while in Germany it is going to be sold for €262,950. These are still unofficial pricings but it is the closest that you can get to the real figures currently. We see this as a potentially good choices as the updated version is not going to be as pricy as you would think it would but will at the same time be close to what we are expecting it to be. The 2019 Aston Martin Vanquish S will be available in both coupe and convertible versions as well.
What is the Exterior Design Including?
The updates for the exterior of the 2019 Aston Martin Vanquish S are not going to be as extensive as you would expect them to be. In fact the model was redesigned in such a way that the updates are not that big but it does make the car significantly different compared to the outgoing model. The updates are actually making the car far more aerodynamic and the exterior changes will concentrate mainly on improving the car’s ability to swoop through air more precisely. These are the ones that we are certain are going to be retained and they might tone down some parts for the final release but the 2019 model will mostly base its looks on what we were able to see in the previous release.
The added parts include a front splitter and rear diffuser made from carbon fiber. It will reduce frontal lift and at the same time keep additional drag away. The rear adds new quad exhaust outlets and there is a Vanquish S badge attached to the tailgate. Other newly added options include carbon-fiber hood louvers, newly painted graphics and forged five-spoke “diamond turned” wheels. Additionally, we can expect some new color options which will be made available. Generally speaking, this is what we can expect from the S badged Vanquish for the 2019 model year. It will improve on the previous generation model and add the elements which some say may be crucial in development of the car. We are expecting one of the finer models that will appear on the roads.
What are the Interior Changes Made?
The interior changes for the 2019 Aston Martin Vanquish S will mainly focus on enhancing the current setup of the inside for the car. The model will get some cool new features and the upholstery of the car takes a larger swing upwards. The newly available cars have “Filograph” quilted seats that the company is using and there will be some dark leather which will come with different contrast stitching.
The center stack will include some cool new finishes endowed with all new knobs and buttons. They will also be enclosed in a Chopped Carbon Fiber fascia, which looks pretty awesome for the newest model. There are also available Bridge of Weir Caithness leather upholstery which provide added luxury for the car.
Other parts of the car are going to remain completely unchanged. This means that the car will retain its AMi III infotainment system with a 6.5-inch LCD screen, DAB radio, satellite navigation, AM/FM radio, and Bluetooth. The 1000-watt Bang & Olufsen BeoSound audio system with 13 speaker comes standard for the car.
The combination of both the old and the new will make the 2019 Aston Martin Vanquish S a pretty good choice. The updates are probably the best thing that the fans are hoping for to get and it will also help to make the other interior parts seem more luxurious. We see the vehicle having one of the better cabins in the segment and it will probably seem like one of the most crucial cars that are going to come out the coming year.
Engine Output and Performance
There are also going to be some changes for the engine of the 2019 Aston Martin Vanquish S. This actually means updating and re-tweaking the current engine and giving it better performance. Consequently, the 5.9-liter V-12 engine will be able to deliver 592 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque. With the updates, the car has added 24 hp to its current setup but keeps the torque unchanged. So as you can see they are making sure that the Vanquish S has a power output which will go along its name. The vehicle is going to be immensely powerful and will provide the output that we all wish it to have. The numbers are still fresh but we do not see them improving beyond than this and it will most certainly give us a bigger output and larger changes than the car needs. But all in all, this is enough for the model to deal with.
What is the Top Speed and 0-60 mph Performance?
Thanks to the added changes, the 2019 Aston Martin Vanquish will receive added updates when it comes to the 0-60 mph performance and its top speed. The vehicle enhances to 3.5 seconds now needed to reach 0-60 mph, while the top speed will be limited to 201 mph. This is all thanks to the increased power of the car and the speeding ability is also going to attract added audiences as well. We see this as a perfect opportunity for the car to get bigger and better and to stage a needed boost for the coming period. Fans will probably enjoy the increase in the Vanquish’ ability.
Fuel Economy Rating of the 2019 Aston Martin Vanquish S
If you are prepared to be the owner of a car such as the 2019 Aston Martin Vanquish S model is, then you probably know that the fuel rating is not that favorable. The car offers immense performance and people are aware that it consumes a lot. With the introduced changes to the engine and the aerodynamics to the exterior of the car, we are only expecting an EPA rating of 16 mpg city, 13 mpg highway and 21 mpg combined. It does not get better than this so you can either accept it or get a different car.
Are There Going to be any Dimension Changes?
Although the aerodynamics of the 2019 Aston Martin Vanquish S are going to change and improve, we are not going to get any dimension changes for the model. It will have the same design as before and we can attest that the only changes are in regards to the outside and will be used for the aerodynamics and its improvement. The wheelbase of the car is 107.9 in and the overall length is still 186.2 in, with the height and width being 51.0 in and 75.2 in. The curb weight of the car is measured to somewhere between 3850-4050 lb and is reduced compared to the previous concept. The vehicle will be kept similar as the model that we saw made its debut in LA and they are going to keep it close to that model.
What are the Safety Specs of the Car?
With the updates introduced to the 2019 Aston Martin Vanquish S, we are going to get a safe car, the same as before. The model can attest to having great safety ratings that are going to enable it good and very safe driving. Both the NHTSA and the IIHS have not conducted crash tests for the current version of the car due to its limited sales and the price of the car. This will be the case with the upcoming model as well and it will probably suffer the same fate. But the car will be equipped with all kinds of on board safety equipment which will protect the car and the passengers on the inside. The designers are not going to let people step inside a car before securing it as best as they possibly can.
Which Rivals is the 2019 Aston Martin Vanquish S Going to Deal With?
The current list of rivals for the 2019 Aston Martin Vanquish S is going to consist of luxury cars. The closest one is the Maserati Granturismo, which can rival the car both in style, luxury and performance. Other models that we can mention include the latest Bentley Continental GT Speed and the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. With the introduction of the new 2019 Vanquish S the competition might decide to bring their own updates. For now there are none scheduled but we can probably hope to hear some new changes happening. As for the 2019 Aston Martin Vanquish S goes, it will certainly hold a much more boastful position compared to the rivals. It will bring forth an offer that can challenge all of them and come with something that the rivals do not have.
