There's a wide range of electric adjustment to help drivers of different shapes and sizes make themselves comfortable, and, although you sit quite high, the high window line creates a secure feel. The dash is styled to echo the wings of the Bentley badge, and is reasonably user-friendly. However, the thick, steeply angled windscreen pillars leave blind spots at roundabouts and junctions.
You’d expect a Bentley to provide a luxurious environment, and the Continental GT does just that. Just about everything is trimmed with polished wood or soft leather, and the quality of the fixtures and fittings is exemplary.
What isn’t quite so impressive is the Continental’s infotainment system, which is a colour touchscreen borrowed from VW’s parts bin. It’s almost comically unresponsive, looks low-resolution and doesn’t offer the latest smartphone connectivity features, either.
