Bentley Continental vs. the competition
2018 Bentley Continental
2017 Aston Martin DB11
Bentley Continental vs. Aston Martin DB11
Both the Bentley and the Aston are emblematic British grand tourers, though the Continental does have two more seats. Both deliver rapid acceleration and sharp handling, but the DB11 is closer to the sports car spectrum and is more engaging as a result. Either choice will cost more than $200,000, but the Aston Martin gets an edge for being more up-to-date.
Bentley Continental vs. Mercedes-Benz S-Class
The S-Class convertible is positively futuristic compared to the Bentley, with a full complement of advanced safety features and automated driving systems. It also benefits from more modern infotainment features and accommodations. The Benz, however, doesn't have the same head-turning presence or hand-built charm as the Bentley.
Bentley Continental vs. Porsche 911
For the same price as the Bentley, you can get a loaded 911 Turbo S Cabriolet. But at that level, it's more of a supercar than a tourer. You can spend half as much for a more comfortable 911 that will have more modern features than what's available on the Continental. The problem is a Porsche 911 is comparably plebeian next to the exotic Bentley.
