Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 16 - 17 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Compared to older Bentleys, the GT was comparatively affordable at launch and is even more so now used cars are available for the price of a more mainstream luxury coupé. The sheer number produced means residuals are strong but not rock solid. However any 200mph car is going to be expensive to run and the Bentley is no different, regardless of whether you bought it for £130,000 new or half that used.

Group 20 insurance and a 17mpg thirst will put a dent in any pocket but at least the GT only requires servicing every 10,000 miles.

The Continental GT is high-emission model and with an average of 410g/km of CO2 across the range, its emissions are extremely high for a luxury coupé, although low-emissions isn't a priority for buyers in this sector of the market. The range is very thirsty too, averaging 16 mpg.

Being part of the same group as Audi and Volkswagen bodes well for the reliability of the Bentley GT and all current Bentley cars, just as it did for Lamborghini whose quality control received a massive shot in the arm when it became part of the family.
