The 2021 Bentley Continental GT is a beautifully designed and superbly handcrafted grand tourer, with a fully 6-liter W12 engine. The Bentley Continental GT is a big tour produced and sold by British carmaker Bentley Motors. The 2021 Bentley Continental GT definition of a grand-touring car, proudly bears that name at the end of its name. Whether you choose a hardtop coupe or a soft-top convertible, a sonic V-8, or a silk V-12, the Continental GT will make you feel like a celebrity on every outing.
The 2021 Continental GT is where it really shines, on the road, where it can harness its sufficient power and demonstrate an almost perfect balance of comfort and athleticism. Bentley has made several changes to the Conti GT for the 2021 model year. Chief among them is the new panoramic glass roof available on the V-8 coupe. By the way, the two-door grand-touring gets an updated steering wheel design and three new colors: Viridian, Patina, and Snow Quartz.
2021 Bentley Continental GT Interior
Inside, the interior is covered with aromatic leather and fine wood veneer, and almost everything related to the Continental GT is adjustable price. Bentley’s designers have thought it all through and every time behind the wheel they reveal surprising details, such as expertly cut control buttons and double-stitched seat covers with a diamond pattern. Although the Continental GT technically has seat belts for four passengers, suggest that you avoid using the rear seat for towing adults, as leg and headspace is limited. In our test, the trunk of a Continental can hold five hand luggage, enough space for a weekend getaway with your favorite companion.
A 12.3-inch entertainment and information display dominates the dashboard and can be rotated toward it, lifting the dashboard with three small analog gauges that show outside air temperature, time, and compass. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto features are standard, as is a digital display that allows the driver to control most of the Continental GT’s functions using the steering wheel controls.
2021 Bentley Continental GT Engine
Updated versions of the existing V-8 and W-12 engines that powered the previous generation Continental GT provide ample power. Our testing revealed that the V-8, which makes 542 horsepower, can launch coupes at 60 mph in 3.4 seconds. The more expensive W-12 engine produces 626 horsepower and can motivate coupes to speeds of up to 60 km / h in 3.3 seconds. Both use an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that shuts off super-fast but smooth transmissions. Customers can order a coupe or convertible with any engine. And all Continental GTs have all-wheel drive as standard.
The Twin-turbo V-8 is the most economical offer in a particular model, you know that efficiency is not the most important thing for a car manufacturer or its customers. The EPA rates the Continental V-8 with 16 miles per mile per city and 26 highways. During our actual testing, we achieved an average of 28 miles per gallon in the V-8 over 200 miles on the highway.
2021 Bentley Continental GT Safety
Key safety features include lane-keeping assistance, emergency braking, lane departure warning, pedestrian detection, and adaptive cruise control. This vehicle has not been evaluated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Road Safety Insurance Institute (IIHS). Bentley offers driver assistance functions as options, such as adaptive cruise control, night vision system, and automated emergency braking with pedestrian recognition, items expected to be standard, given the steep start at a normal price range.
