Aimed at enhancing the well-being and comfort of the vehicle's occupants, even more, the new Azure range will be available across all Bentley model lines.
In the words of Bentley, 'effortless performance and comfort over long distances have long been hallmarks of the brand.' So, just when you thought Bentley couldn't focus more on enhancing the ride comfort of its vehicles, the folks at Crewe have come out with a new Azure family of cars, available across all five model lines – the Bentayga, Bentayga EWB, Flying Spur, Continental GT, and Continental GT Convertible. While the brand's 'Speed' models prioritise performance, the Azure range focuses on increasing the 'feel-fresh' factor of the driver and passengers after each journey via a curated selection of features.
A key element of the Azure range is Bentley’s 48V active anti-roll system, Bentley Dynamic Ride, which adds toward enhancing the ride comfort and limiting body roll. The system is capable of electronically decoupling the anti-roll bars, when appropriate, to smoothen the ride. It can even apply up to 1,300Nm of anti-roll torque (in just 0.3 seconds) while cornering to keep the body flat and stable.
All Bentley Azure models also come specified with a Front Seat Comfort pack, which offers up to 22-way adjustable seats, with heating and cooling functionality. The pack is completed with additional features like a six-setting massage function, adjustable side bolsters, electric seatbelt adjustment, and comfort headrests.
As for the visual updates on the Azure range, all models get 'Azure' badging on the exterior, treadplates, fascia, and seat embroidery. Other design elements unique to the range include bright-chrome lower bumper grilles, bespoke 22-inch ten-spoke wheels, 'wellness quilted' seats, and a few finishing touches such as the Bentley ‘jewel’ filler cap.
All Azure models also feature a 'Touring Specification' of the driver assistance systems, such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Assist, Traffic Assist and Bentley Safeguard. Night Vision and Head-up Display further augment the functioning of the assistance systems.
