Learn about the Bentley Continental GT

Summary

The Bentley Continental GT is a high-end luxury vehicle available as a coupe or convertible. Drivers and passengers alike will be in awe over the nostalgic, yet modern design of the entire vehicle. Coupled with a smooth-running eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, every driver appreciates the purring ride of the Bentley Continental GT. This is a car that offers drivers a first-class experience behind the wheel. A full spread of interior features makes this luxury car stand out among competitors in its class. And, if you're willing to pay more, there's a powerful two engine option.

Safety

The Bentley Continental GT is an iconic luxury car that is no slouch when it comes to the latest safety features. Drivers have the option of selecting a few innovative safety add-ons depending on the safety package. There's also a futuristic head-up display that puts driving information on the windshield, so hands can stay on the wheel while cruising.

Notable features include:

  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Night vision system
  • Automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection
  • Lane-departure alerts and lane assist

Interior

The interior cabin is where the Bentley Continental GT is utterly royal. The Bentley Continental GT boasts the feeling of old Hollywood with its supple leather and distinctive wood veneer that drivers can personalize to suit their taste. With each glance of the Bentley Continental GT's cabin, drivers will be floored by the 15 interior "hides" that can be personalized to cover a variety of cabin features for a sleek, unobstructed look. Opt for the panoramic sunroof option to make the interior cabin feel even more open.

Technology

The tech in the Bentley Continental GT matches the high-end luxury feel of the interior cabin. Drivers will be pleasantly pleased with the 12.3-inch infotainment centre. Bentley made a clever addition here, giving the screen the ability to rotate when desired. In striking contrast to the high-tech infotainment centre, the small analog gauges in the cockpit fill the driver with happy nostalgia. Enjoyment is easy with the Bentley Continental GT's integrated Wi-Fi hotspot, plus Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities.

Space

The interior cabin space of the Bentley Continental GT is ample but not overly roomy. Reviews note that the rear seating area has a limited amount of legroom or headroom, but rest assured, the front seating is very comfortable and open. And there is a decent amount of trunk space. With 9.1 cubic feet of cargo room, the Bentley Continental GT can certainly be used for shopping sprees or weekends away.

Comfort

The Bentley Continental GT is a gorgeous car with substantial power under the hood. Drivers will love the option of two different engine types, a V-8 or W-12. Both options give drivers the thrill of being quick off the line. This all-wheel drive coupe or convertible is very smooth and fast with gear changes. Bentley also utilizes a 48V Active Roll Control system that helps to sense road conditions in order to optimize handling and create an effortless ride.
