Bentley Continental GT (2011-2018) review – interior and Tech
A great grand tourer but definitely no sports car
The tech inside the Bentley Continental GT is where the car starts to really show its age. In particular, the nav system feels woefully outdated. Thankfully Bentley is set to bring itself up to date in this regard with the Bentayga, but those stepping into the Continental GT expecting class-leading tech will be disappointed.
It’s slow, laggy and frequently freezes or locks up. It’s a shame, because it’s the only way to interact with the absolutely spectacular Naim audio system that can be fitted to the car. Well worth ticking the options list for the audiophile.
As for the interior itself, Bentley offers up a wide range of materials to suit just about any taste. It does some excellent carbon fibre work, particularly in the more hardcore GT3-R, while the choice of split colour leathers and diamond quilted stitching on seats is right up there with the best.
