2015 Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT

The 2015 Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT became the least-expensive and most focussed Aston Martin since the 1980s. If you want an Aston Martin, it is pretty obvious that you have to save every penny. Although by the fall of 2015, prospective buyers needed to save less as Aston Martin introduced the new and totally magnificent V8 Vantage GT for an exceptional price. The coupe became available for just $102,725, while the roadster could be purchased for $177,225, that being a saving of $18,500 over the standard V8 Vantage.

Quite the Deal by Aston Martin Standards

The new Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT has an applicably bad-ass look and in any of its five colour options its super eye-catchy. So, whether you drive the Speedway White with silver, Mariana Blue with silver, Skyfall Silver with anthracite, the Jet Black with silver or the Allora Green with white, heads will be turning in awe of your wheels.

No matter how you look at it, the Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT is a high watermark in the world of most amazing designs. It will never look dated and is one of those so rare, it’s as classically modern as it was from the start. But of course, the Vantage GT comes with some added flair with its accent stripes, pillar/roof, rocker panels and it looks simply sensational with yellow accents.

Sophisticated, Stylish, Classy simply Tasteful

You would not always describe the interiors of Aston Martins as functional bliss, but then no one really mind since they are works of neoclassical art, it favours beauty, and it is just so unlike mass market cars. While the interior is simply gorgeous, driving becomes more theatrical, and at the same time, the attention to detail makes any UX pro go insane. There is no doubt that it is the car that any driver goes bananas for and once you sit in the driver seat there is that feeling that you’re in something special, classy, stylish, sophisticated and upmarket.

What You Should Expect of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT Sound Wise

It doesn’t come standards with the Olufsen & Bang mega stereo experience, and you’ll be more than fine with it, as for the engine, expect to be torn. It sounds marvellous, and it is throaty with the perfect amount of rasp. There is no denial to the fact that it’s a great and the most gorgeous in its class, every single angle of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage is just perfect, it feels amazing, looks fantastic and its sound gives you goosebumps.

It is the last of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage range, and fans should enjoy it while they can as it will leave behind a post-Vantage world with so much less style, beauty, less mechanical theatre, less emotion. There are cars like the Viper or Porsche that can probably compete with it but still, there is the “it” factor, and we all know that the Aston Martin has it and the rest can simply not match it.

This is the new Mazda 2, which should prove a fuel-efficient rival for the Ford Fiesta and Vauxhall Corsa when it goes on sale early 2015.

2015 Chevrolet Cruze

Chevrolet Cruze

After 4 years in which it’s become in 2010 a segment best-seller, the Chevrolet Cruze is finally getting a long overdue update. The 2015 Chevrolet Cruze will be debuting at the upcoming New York International Auto Show with a new nose, a few interior changes, and new infotainment options.

2015 GMC Canyon

The 2015 GMC Canyon is reappearing at a prime time, especially since the midsize pickup truck segment has needed some new blood.

The Canyon, on the other hand, strikes a really good balance between delivering those things car buyers really want in a vehicle and making happy those with genuine trucky needs. It boasts a really smooth ride; it doesn’t suffer from that jumpiness most unladen pickups are prone to, requiring a couple hundred pounds of payload to smooth over.

2015 GMC Canyon

The 2.5-liter four-cylinder that was the focus of my First Drive of the Colorado is the standard engine for the Canyon as well, but the truck I drove was equipped with the far punchier (and thirstier at 17 miles per gallon city, 24 highway) 3.6-liter V6. Not only does the six make a healthy 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque.

2015 GMC Canyon

GMC sells the 2015 Canyon as an extended-cab truck, with little room in the back for anything but child safety seats and randomly sized cargo, or a true crew cab, with four front-hinged doors and reasonable seating for four adults.

The base $23,575 2015 GMC Canyon comes with AM/FM sound with a USB port; air conditioning; power windows; a power driver seat; and tilt steering. The $27,520 Canyon SLE adds more USB ports, satellite radio, a color touchscreen radio with GMC’s IntelliLink infotainment interface, and cruise control. The ritzy $30,655 Canyon SLT pulls perilously close to Sierra build combinations, with its standard automatic climate control, remote start, power front seats, and optional navigation.
