The radio in the car is definitely not enough. You need a radio with a large screen in the console and another large display for navigation in the back. These products are usually easy to find in luxury car configurations, after all, entertainment at the right level is very important during trips (and not only for longer ones). After all, passengers should not be bored.
The formula hasn’t changed over the years. A common investment is large tablets that attach to the front seats.

Two matrices with a diagonal of 10.1 inches were prepared for the rear passengers. Bentley mentions a high resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels – this is a bit disappointing, since the standard iPad with a 10.2-inch screen has a matrix with a resolution of 2160 x 1620 pixels.

The British are proud to say that the issue of integration has been given the priority it deserves. You can rely on audio transmission via Bluetooth (but thankfully the traditional headphone jack has been retained), remote software updates (OTA, or over the air) or easy image creation from Android and iOS smartphones. This is not the end.
On the touch screens in the car, we will use many online services such as Amazon Prime, Disney + or Apple TV. These platforms are available as long as we use smartphones. The situation is different from the popular Netflix, which is already installed on Bentley screens.
As always, one thing remains an open question – price. The cost of the options was wisely ignored in the press releases. However, considering that the previous Rear Entertainment set with 10-inch screens was valued at around 7,000. euros, you can expect the same amount in the case of a new one. Are they ready?
