Bentley Flying Spur And Bentayga Get Epic Rear-Seat Entertainment System

Luxury / Comments

The new displays are said to provide an "immersive experience".

Bentley is a brand synonymous with luxury and exclusivity - that much is evident from the massive show it put on at Monterey Car Week. More evidence of that fact is seen in Bentley's latest creation, the Flying Spur Mulliner. But you needn't opt for the range-topper to get the latest in the brand's luxury options. The Crewe-based automaker is ending the month of August with the announcement that both the Flying Spur and the Bentayga now have access to a new rear-seat entertainment system. You've seen things like this in run-of-the-mill cars too, but we guarantee that none of them are as beautifully made as what Bentley is offering here.

Combined with the class-leading "Naim for Bentley" audio system already available to both cars, the system allows you to wirelessly stream content directly from your smartphone, laptop, or tablet. Each removable high-definition touchscreen measures 10.1 inches and is attached to the back of a front seat, offering impressive graphics in a resolution of up to 1920 by 1080 pixels. Just as you can connect to the system wirelessly, you can also listen to it wirelessly, either via the included Bluetooth headphones or your own headset. A headphone jack is included too. If all occupants are happy with your entertainment selection, audio can also be played through the aforementioned audio system that offers a class-leading 2,200 watts of power. With over-the-air (OTA) updates, the system will always be up to date with the latest software.

The system supports screencasting via iOS and Android media apps and can also be configured to the car's WiFi network to access things like Amazon Prime, Disney+ or Apple TV. Netflix is preinstalled for convenience too, and with HDMI ports on both screens as well as a USB Type C port for charging and software updates, you can juice up your phone while using something like an Amazon Firestick. Finally, each screen houses a small microphone "which monitors audio coming from the Bentayga or Flying Spur's Naim audio system and ensures this is always synchronized with the media played on the Bentley Rear Entertainment system."

It's quite an impressive (and likely expensive) offering, bolstering Bentley's claim of being the best in British luxury.
