Power and Performance

Though the Volante complains through its steering wheels when on bumpy roads, you really experience its grip, composure and efficiency in gliding when on smooth and fast roads. Emitting a powerful howl from its 470bhp V12 and also from the wheels, its sound is great for the ear, especially when the roof is down.

The DB9 Volante has a pulling strength of 443lb ft, making it unforgiving when on the speed lane. You can decide to choose the manual six speed gearbox, or the six speed automatic gearbox, with option for manual override.

Interior & Exterior

The Volante is built with the VH structure held by aluminum sheets and does not suffer from the creaks suffered by its other convertible competitors. Aside the complaint when going on bad roads, there is nothing about the DB9 Volante that spoils the driving day.

Matt wood and aluminum overlay the dashboard, while carpet and quality leather tidy up the other parts of the interior. Front seats that are adjustable and supportive as well are what you’ll be paying for.

The front seats enjoy plenty of leg room, especially for tall drivers. Nevertheless, although the back seats may not be able to accommodate extra adults, they can carry a few bags or luggage during a journey.

The DB9 Volante is stocked up with great features; power seat adjustment, satellite navigation, climate control and others are fitted into this sports car. You can as well add other accessories at some extra price.

Safety and Reliability

Although the backward visibility is a bit reduced while driving backwards especially when roof is covered, the forward visibility is okay. There are built in windshields pillars with pop-up hoops that protect occupants of the DB9 Volante in the case of an accident. These are automatically deployed as soon as sensors detect that our super car is in trouble.

There are also braking aids, four airbags, and electronic traction. The Volante is reliable and best suited for cruising rather than athletics – with gentle suspension springs and a thinner anti-roll bar in front.

eBest Cars Verdict

The Aston Martin DB9 Volante is a lovely car, and especially for the non-athletics, it’s perfect for cruising, and fast enough to satisfy you on the runway. The basic features of the super car are really cool; they can also be expanded as well, although that comes a bit pricy.

Aston Martin cars have all the glamour and they look like some kind of Hollywood Supercars. DB9 Volante is no doubt has an appeal that you just cannot ignore. Price is higher, but if you are a Aston Martin lover, you will buy it.
