The leather and wood trim reeks of luxury and prestige but fails to satisfy on more practical levels. Opulent seats are short of side support in cornering, while the switchgear is scattered around the cabin in a fashion that would drive an ergonomist mad.
Bentley Arnage Saloon space & practicality
Space is adequate for most people. However, a strangely high seating position and lack of adjustment of range mean the Arnage’s front seats don’t cater well for the very large – they’d be much better off in a German rival. Equally, rear seat leg- and headroom could be improved for those who prefer the chauffeured treatment.
Bentley Arnage Saloon equipment
As buyers of a luxury car would expect, the Arnage comes with a terrific stereo, climate control sat-nav and leather. The Bentley difference comes from the bespoke range of extras that customers can order. So if you want a mother of pearl music box for your travelling companion to play with, speak to your dealer. Just don’t expect it to be cheap.
