While the Ferrari 488 GTB single-mindedly pursues performance above all else, the ‘Grand Touring’ nature of the Aston Martin DB11 means it can’t forget about user-friendliness altogether. As a result, it’s actually a surprisingly practical car that makes a great long-distance companion.

Aston Martin DB11 interior space & storage

The DB11’s chassis design has opened up a lot more space inside than the previous DB9, without hugely increasing its external dimensions. Like its predecessor, the DB11 has a ‘two-plus-two’ seating layout, as well as a boot that can take enough luggage for a lengthy trip away.

A pair of long doors open wide, making access easy, while those in the front get plenty of head and legroom. The seats are supportive and well shaped for both hard cornering and relaxed long-distance jaunts. They also have a generous range of adjustment, so even tall drivers should be able to find a comfortable seating position.

One compromise is that the rear seats certainly live up to their ‘plus-two’ status; with little headroom and nowhere for passengers to put their legs, they’re really only suitable for smaller children or as an extension of the luggage space.

Boot space

The DB11’s 270-litre boot is smaller than the Bentley Continental GT’s, but larger than the Maserati GranTurismo’s, while it’s well shaped and easily takes good-size suitcases – all the better for those pan-continental road trips.

Towing

The Aston Martin DB11 isn’t suitable for towing.
