Bentley revealed the new Azure range. Available across all five model lines (Bentayga, Bentayga EWB, Flying Spur, Continental GT and Continental GT Convertible), it provides customers with a curated selection of features designed to enhance the wellbeing and comfort.
Azure includes tactile and visual cues designed to reduce stress, along with driver assistance technologies for even more enjoyable journeys. The vehicles feature the Front Seat Comfort Specification. With up to 22-way adjustable seats, passengers of all heights and weights, from the 95th percentile male to the 5th percentile female, can enjoy their ideal seating position while the heating and ventilation function helps to maintain the body’s optimum temperature for comfort and alertness. A massage function with its six programmable settings promotes the constant micro-adjustments in muscle and posture that are so important in preventing fatigue. The adjustable side bolsters, electric seatbelt adjustment and comfort headrests complete the Front Seat Comfort specification.
Another key element of the Azure range specification is Bentley Dynamic Ride, Bentley’s 48V active anti-roll control system that improves ride comfort and limits roll for relaxing journeys. The system cushions driver and passengers from excessive movement by electronically decoupling the anti-roll bars when appropriate to smooth the ride, then applying up to 1300 Nm of anti-roll torque in 0.3 seconds when cornering to keep the body flat and stable.
All Azure models are fitted with the Touring Specification of driver assistance systems. Adaptive Cruise Control maintains a set distance from the vehicle in front, slowing down (to a halt if necessary) when the vehicle in front does so and resuming the set speed once the lane is clear. Together with Lane Assist, Traffic Assist and Bentley Safeguard, Bentley’s suite of onboard radar and camera systems constantly checking the surrounding traffic and roads and can intervene if necessary to prevent or avoid an accident. The Head-up Display shows directions and navigation directly in the line of sight of the driver, and by Night Vision, which uses infra-red cameras to identify pedestrians, cyclists and fauna outside the beam of the LED headlights.
The interior design of the new specification includes ‘wellness quilting’; the fractal patterns of precisely crafted diamond-quilted upholstery create an eye-pleasing interplay of light and shade. The customers have a choice of three open-pore veneers; Dark Walnut, Crown-Cut Walnut and Koa, whose softer, satin, reflective quality evokes a mood of calm. 15 hide colors and color splits with contrast stitching as standard and seat piping as a no-cost option are available. Complementing these visual pleasures are Azure illuminated treadplates, Bentley ‘B’ foot pedals, mood lighting, and a duo-tone steering wheel with a heating function.
