Equipment

4.5 out of 5 4.5

You're not left wanting for goodies in a Bentley GT. Climate control, full leather trim, an automatic gearbox and satellite navigation are all part of the standard package. Cruise control is also standard but unlike the Mercedes and Jaguar systems, the Bentley's doesn't slow you automatically if the car in front reduces speed. New owners can personalise the Bentley's trim by choosing various Mulliner options including different interior woods and leathers for the interior or even a sportier engine-turned metal dash trim.

Safety

4 out of 5 4.0

The GT should be one of the safer cars in its class thanks to the standard front, side and curtain airbags, seatbelt pretensioners and the standard electronic stability control. We say should because in common with its rivals, the Bentley hasn't undergone Euro NCAP crash tests. But the grippy four-wheel drive chassis and standard stability control system should help prevent you causing a crash yourself while the expensive optional carbon ceramic brakes provide a noticeable improvement in stopping power and resistance to fade.

Interior & boot space

3.5 out of 5 3.5

While a boot that's only just bigger than Volkswagen Golf's doesn’t sound huge in a car this large, it is big by the standard of the class and should carry all the luggage four people would want to take on the sort of long distance trip the Bentley was designed for. And many owners will treat the GT as a two-seater, leaving extra space behind the front seats.

There's a storage cubby under the central armrest in the front, another cubby in the console between the rear seats and even storage space for sunglasses in an overhead console. Parking visibility isn't great although front and rear sensors are thankfully standard.
