KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors - Updated Date: 2/27/2014


Among the world's exclusive performance cars, British automaker Aston Martin stands above luxury brands such as Audi and BMW and just below exotics such as Ferrari and Bentley. The 2014 DB9 itself sits in the middle Aston Martin's lineup, above the Vantage and below the Vanquish GT. Like the Vanquish, the DB9 is more of a civilized touring car than the track-oriented Vantage, yet it remains a formidable performer. Available as a coupe or convertible (Volante), the DB9 has stunning design and a captivating V12 engine that makes over 500 horsepower. At nearly $190,000, the DB9's cost of entry is for an elite few who will then have to locate a dealer, but taking the plunge grants immediate access to a high-class club that counts James Bond as a member.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you're looking for a rare, 2+2 performance coupe or convertible with breathtaking looks, a cylinder-rich engine and over 100 years of history, the 2014 Aston Martin DB9 qualifies.

You May Not Like This Car If...

Like the DB9 itself, Aston Martin dealerships are rather scarce. With only about three dozen nationwide, make sure you can access one for purchase and service. Driving purists desiring a manual transmission or a higher degree of performance can find both in a Porsche 911, Audi R8 or BMW M6.

What's New for 2014

Automatic headlights, a rearview camera and rain-sensing windshield wipers become standard on 2014 DB9 models. New colors are also available this model year, as is a sports exhaust system.

Driving It Driving Impressions

With the ability to sprint to 60 mph in about 4.5 seconds and reach 183 mph, the rear-wheel-drive DB9 isn't the fastest in this class, but it's hardly a slouch. Unless you regularly drag race Ferraris, you're still almost guaranteed to be first onto the freeway, thanks to the undeniable power of the Aston V12. But the DB9 isn't meant just to be quick. This is a grand touring car that's intended to be comfortable for many miles and long stretches. The 2014 DB9 achieves that thanks to its 3-stage Adaptive Damping System that can soften the suspension for cruising or tighten it to hug corners. Other highlights include the steering wheel's progressive feedback and the overall comfort and quiet of the cabin. The DB9's 6-speed automatic transmission is snappy, but when in manual mode is slower to react. If you choose to go topless in the Volante convertible, be prepared to contend with pronounced wind buffeting.

Favorite Features

BANG & OLUFSEN BeoSound AUDIO
We've heard a lot of sound systems in a lot of cars, but the Bang & Olufsen setups in Aston Martins are something magical. Aside from its sheer power output – 1,000 watts for those counting – this optional system is tuned to bring audiophile bliss that rivals the DB9's excellent exhaust note.

OH, THOSE LOOKS
You don't have to drive a DB9 to sense its special place among automobiles. All it takes is one look. Aston Martins are as much rolling artwork as they are road-going rocket, and the latest DB9 is no exception.
