2023 Bentley Flying Spur Interior and Cargo

2023 Flying Spur Interior

When it comes to interiors, Bentley and Rolls Royce reign supreme in their little segment. You could include Mercedes's Maybach offering in that list, but in our opinion, the Germans used the wrong definition of luxury. Luxury is not the number of gadgets, touchscreens, and buttons on the dash, though these things play a minor role. Luxury is about space and light. It's how something feels when you touch it. It's about being confined from the hustle and bustle going on outside the car. In summary, it's about providing a space that has a calming effect.

The Flying Spur has a stunning, hand-crafted interior. It has a 12.3-inch display, navigation, four-zone climate control, and power-adjustable everything, but that's what you expect on cars that cost as much as the Bentley Flying Spur. What sets the Bentley apart is the quality of the interior and how well insulated it is. At the end of a long day, you'll look down at the hand-stitched leather, Alcantara headlining, the glossy wood inserts, and the majestic Flying B emblem on the steering wheel, all the while wrapped in an eerily silent cabin. Then you'll realize that your life is pretty epic. That's what luxury is.

Seating and Interior Space

The Flying Spur is technically a five-seater, but the rear middle seat is narrower and less comfortable than the other seats. Bentley does give you the option of swapping the five seats for four, at an additional cost, naturally. You also have access to electrically operated picnic tables mounted in the back of the front seats.

You have to try hard not to get comfortable in the Bentley. It has 41.9 inches of legroom in the front and 42.9 inches in the rear. The headroom in the front is 37.4 inches, while the rear headroom is just 0.4 inches less. As you'd expect, the front seats are power-adjustable, as is the steering column. Finding the correct seating position has never been easier, and you'll stay comfortable thanks to standard seat massaging for the front seats. Rear seats get Alcantara headrest cushions, which is a particularly nice touch, especially if you still want to get driven around occasionally.

Interior Colors and Materials

Hand cross-stitching and semi-aniline leather form part of the package for the rear of the Flying Spur. And, as with the exterior color palette, Bentley caters to customers who just want something standard and customers who want to be part of the customization experience. You can choose between three standard color-split interior options on both the W12 and V8, which allows for further customization, as it lets you choose between the main hide and a secondary hide. There are 11 leather options to choose from if you're opting for a one-color theme, but if you want to mix it up, you can choose from up to 14 colors for the main hide, and opt for a secondary hue from the original palette of 11.

There are even more options to choose from in terms of veneers, from single finish to dual finish veneers by Mulliner. The former has options like Piano Black, High Gloss Carbon Fibre, Bright Engine Turned Aluminum, or a variety of wood trim that include Crown Cut Walnut, Open Pore Koa, and Dark Fiddleback Eucalyptus, to name a few. Dual finish options mix Grand Black with one of six wood trims. Also available is the Côtes de Genève finish on the center console, featuring ultra-thin, linear-patterned aluminum. To really complete your desired look, you can also add contrast seatbelts, change the stitching and piping colors, and select whether you want contrast or blind emblems on the seats. These are just a few highlights; to build a Bentley to your taste, you need to set aside a couple of hours to play with the online configurator.

2023 Flying Spur Trunk and Cargo Space

Bentley uses much of the available space to create an opulent interior. The result is a rather unspectacular 14.8 cubic feet of trunk space. While it is on the small side, 14.8 cubic feet is enough to work with daily - the Mercedes-Maybach S offers less, at 12.5 cubic feet of space. It might get tricky if you want to take a family of four away for the weekend, but luckily there's a solution: take the money you saved by not having to pay a chauffeur, and spend it on a van, and then you simply send the packed van ahead.

Front passengers get bottle holders in the doors and two cupholders situated in front of the armrest. Rear passengers are treated to two cup holders and charging points. Go for the four-seater option, and you can add a fridge between the two rear seats or benefit from the extra stowage in the long-through console that extends from the front through to the back.

2023 Flying Spur Infotainment and Features

Features

You might not believe this, but there is such a thing as a "standard" Flying Spur. The spec sheet of standard features includes the Comfort Specification, which translates to power-adjustable thigh bolsters and side bolsters on the front seats, as well as heating and ventilation on the front and rear outboard seats. All perches also have a massage function. The armrests in the center and door-sides are also heated. Added to this is standard four-zone climate control, cruise control, soft-closing doors, push-button start, rear window blinds, and a refrigerated glovebox. The trunk is hands-free, and all mirrors automatically dim themselves. The City Specification is standard on the W12 and V8. It includes city assist, pedestrian warning, traffic sign recognition, reverse traffic warning, automatically dimming mirrors, a top-view camera, and hands-free trunk-lid opening.

Infotainment

Bentley's luxury approach is decidedly old-school, especially if you opt for any of the wood veneers instead of the carbon fiber option. Still, even a luxury barge needs some sort of infotainment system, and the Bentley has a rather nice one. It doesn't have Android Auto, but the rest of the connectivity features are present and accounted for. Over and above the typical infotainment gadgets, the Bentley also has a 60GB hard drive and two SD card slots. A ten-speaker Bentley audio system is standard, but most owners will likely upgrade to the 16-speaker Bang & Olufsen system or the 21-speaker Naim for Bentley audio systems. You can also order a separate entertainment system for the rear seats, consisting of 10.2-inch tablets and Bluetooth headphones.

The best thing about the central infotainment system is the fact that you can hide it. The screen flips around and can either display three dials or a veneered panel.
