The 2010 Aston Martin DB9
is an ultra-luxurious sports car that combines sport and luxury as a coupe or a convertible offering an Alantara-lined roof with easy lowering/raising functions. Propelled by a 6.0-liter V-12 engine, the Aston Martin DB9 provides a choice of a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.
Lavish, attractive, and powerful, the Aston Martin DB9 delivers smooth handling and triple digit speeds on the road. While the sports car has an impressive button transmission selector, ergonomic issues plague this vehicle. Fuel economy is in the 13 mpg city / 20 mpg highway range.

On the Outside
Restrained but elegant, the Aston Martin DB9 has just enough pizzazz to stand out without making you feel overwhelmed by a spotlight.
From the Inside
The Aston Martin DB9 sports wood and aluminum in the cabin. While the DB9 is technically a 2+2 with small back seats, it is useless for carrying normal-size people in the rear.
The Aston Martin DB9 has a firm ride and the initial impact harshness is possibly made worse by spring and damper rates that were made firmer in previous models. Nonetheless, the effortless power driving experience and exotic exhaust growl make the car worth it. The Volante Convertible is well-stiffened but has virtually no cowl shake and feels solid overall.
Standard safety features on the Aston Martin DB9 include antilock brakes, stability and traction control, front-seat side airbags, and front and rear parking sensors. Automatically deploying rollover hoops are standard on the Volante Convertible.
Coupe: 13 mpg city/20 mpg highway
