This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Bentley Continental GT Coupe review.

Parkers overall rating: 4.2 out of 5 4.2
  • Not crash-tested by experts at Euro NCAP
  • Based on proven VW technology
  • All models feature all-wheel drive

You won’t find details of the Bentley Continental GT’s safety score on the Euro NCAP website as it’s not been tested by the crash analysis experts. However, don’t fear because parent company Volkswagen has an excellent reputation at doing well on these tests and the Bentley is based on tried-and-tested VW hardware.

Naturally, you’ll find the cabin surrounded by airbags, while a suite of electronic stability systems and four-wheel drive help prevent the car becoming too lairy in tricky conditions.

LED lighting technology also ensures you’re easily seen by other road users.

  • Useful 358-litre boot capacity
  • Seats four – just about
  • Luxury finishes don’t promote practicality

Chances are that if you’re considering a Bentley Continental GT you already have a car or two in your fleet that’s considerably more practical, not that the Crewe-built coupe disgraces itself compared with its key rivals.

You’re unlikely to sniff at 358 litres of boot space, which is more than ample for a couple of cases and other sundries for a spontaneous drive to the French Riviera, and there’s a decent amount of cabin space compared with other cars in this segment. Just keep expectations sensible – you’re unlikely to have palatial amounts of rear room in any two-door coupe.

Living with a Continental GT on a daily basis wouldn’t prove a chore either – there’s a good amount of storage space, with sensible cubbies dotted about the cabin. Your main issue will be not wanting to damage the high-quality wood and leather finishes that envelope the interior.
