Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

You’d expect a Bentley to be luxurious, and the Flying Spur doesn’t disappoint. Just about everything is trimmed with polished wood or soft leather, while the quality of the fixtures and fittings is exemplary.

The way the 12.3in touchscreen infotainment system can rotate back into the dashboard when not in use, leaving a clean fascia or some retro dials adds to the wow factor. And the screen itself is reasonably user-friendly, thanks to quick responses and well-ordered menus.

There’s a wide range of electric adjustment to help drivers of different shapes and sizes get comfortable, too. And although you sit quite high by saloon standards, the similarly high window line creates a cocooned feel.

The one major disappointment is visibility. Thick, steeply angled windscreen pillars create sizeable blindspots at roundabouts and angled junctions. And your view to the rear is similarly limited, so you really rely on the reversing camera and blindspot monitoring system.
