The 2009 Bentley Continental features front, side, and curtain airbags, as well as anti-lock brakes, traction and stability control, and all-wheel drive. GTC Continentals also have rollover protection in the rear headrests. A rearview camera is available.

However, neither NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) nor the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) has crash-tested one of these ultra-luxury cars.

Few reviewers actually speak about safety in the GT or GTC, surprisingly. Reports Automotive.com, “Virtually every safety system is standard, with two-stage frontal airbags, side airbags for all doors, side curtain airbags, seatbelt pre-tensioners, tire air pressure monitors, and on the GTC Convertible, reinforced windshield frame and pop-up rear seat rollover bars. Active safety software includes eight-generation electronic stability control, all-wheel drive, rain-sensing wipers, HID headlamps with washers, fog lamps front and rear, and antilock brakes with brake assist.”

In regard to vision, Automotive.com finds rear and quarter vision in the convertible superior to that in the coupe, thanks to the higher roof line, larger side windows, and distortion-free rear glass window that is wider than the view available through the inside mirror.

Conclusion

The 2009 Bentley Continental GT hasn’t been crash-tested, but its mass and safety gear imply few injuries in an accident.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
