Anyone interested in purchasing the 2009 Bentley Continental Flying Spur will likely expect nothing but the very best, and Bentley has gone to great lengths to make sure that nothing but the finest safety equipment makes it into this 2009 Bentley Continental.

NHTSA has, quite understandably, not yet crash tested this exclusive luxury exotic, and the editors at TheCarConnection.com don't expect any 2009 Bentley Continental Flying Spurs to be sacrificed in the name of crash testing in the near future. The other major crash-testing authority in the United States, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, has likewise not yet tested the 2009 Bentley Continental Flying Spur due to cost and production quantity issues. However, TheCarConnection.com can still rate this 2009 Bentley Flying Spur highly in the safety department thanks to an outstanding lineup of standard safety features that Bentley has installed. According to reviewers at Edmunds, the 2009 Bentley Continental lineup comes "standard with side and side curtain airbags front and rear," while ConsumerGuide points out that "safety features include ABS [and] an antiskid system." Other standard safety features on the 2009 Bentley Continental include active headrests for the rear seats that help reduce the likelihood of whiplash injuries, as well as a modified stability control system that Edmunds reports "has been further enhanced over last year's 'sport traction' mode to be less intrusive."

One area of concern with some of the larger luxury vehicles on the road today is driver visibility, which can be compromised by some of the large A and C pillars. However, TheCarConnection.com's research shows that the 2009 Bentley Continental Flying Spur has, for the most part, managed to avoid the visibility problems that plague some of its competitors. ConsumerGuide reviewers are the most vocal in their praise of the visibility from the driver's seat of the 2009 Bentley Flying Spur, reporting that "visibility is generally good all around, though thickish front pillars compromise [the] forward view to the corners."

Conclusion

The large and luxurious 2009 Bentley Continental Flying Spur will keep occupants very safe, thanks to its impressive stability control and full complement of airbags.

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.
