SAFETY | 9 out of 10
The 2010 Bentley Continental GT and GTC have not been crash-tested by NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) or by the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety).
"Virtually every safety system is standard," Automotive reports. All Continentals sport standard front, side, and curtain airbags, as well as anti-lock brakes, traction and stability control, and all-wheel drive. Convertibles also are fitted with automatic pop-up roll bars for added rollover protection, while Speed and Supersports versions have revised stability control that aims to prevent a vehicle spin, while allowing some entertaining wheelspin.
A rearview camera helps with the Continental's visibility; even in the GTC convertible, it can be difficult to gauge the Conti's far-and-away rear end. Automotive finds rear and quarter vision in the convertible superior to that in the coupe, thanks to the higher roofline, larger side windows, and distortion-free rear glass window that is wider than the view available through the inside mirror.
The 2010 Bentley Continental GT hasn't been crash-tested, but its size and safety equipment give good reason for a high score from TheCarConnection.com.
