Owning the 2007 Bentley Azure says that the driver understands luxury, that they value strong performance. If shoppers can afford it, the 2007 Bentley Azure can certainly help in the luxury and performance departments. The 2007 Bentley Azure convertible has a 6.8-liter, V-8 engine that offers 450 hp and 645 lb-ft of torque. It features a full leather and wood interior that emits an old world charm. It also has impressive features, such as a tri-zone climate control system, that will keeps consumers comfortable at all times. However, it burns through fuel as if the ozone layer has already disappeared. It also has a confusing panel that makes it difficult to use some of the latest technology recently added to the car.

The 2007 Bentley Azure might look like those of the past, but it has an improved transmission, engine, and chassis that offers superior performance and a terrific ride.
The 2007 Bentley Azure has those classic lines and sleek aerodynamics. It doesn't get too outrageous with the class. Consumers feel terrific driving it in the English countryside, but they'd also feel pretty great pulling up to a trendy nightclub.
The 2007 Bentley Azure maintains the classic aesthetic that Bentley has worked so hard to create. In many ways, that's a good thing. It boasts an impressive amount of wood and leather. Plus, buyers get to choose from a huge range of colors to personalize the interior. In other ways, though, this classic interior causes problems. That's mostly because Bentley updated the cabin's technological features without making sufficient changes to the panel. This makes the DVD navigator and six-disc CD changer difficult to use. The buttons look too much like each other, and it does not have an intuitive layout that will help drivers pay attention to the road while they look up directions. For many drivers, though, this is a minor complaint, especially after they see the large number of features that come standard in the 2007 Bentley Azure. The cumulative effect of power-adjustable front seats, driver memory, front and rear parking sensors, and a tri-zone climate control system can do that to a person.
Performance & Handling
The 2007 Bentley Azure was built for luxury, but it was also built to leave other cars in the dust. It has a 6.8-liter, twin supercharged, V-8 engine that kicks out a mighty 450 hp and 645 lb-ft of torque. The Azure weighs about 6000 pounds, but that can't stop this impressive engine. Stomp on the gas pedal and drivers can go from zero to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds. At 6000 pounds, they should expect the 2007 Bentley Azure to handle differently than smaller, lighter cars. Given its hulking weight, it actual handles quite well. Still, it could use more feel in the steering. More linearity in the brakes wouldn't hurt either. Overall, though, the Azure handles impressively.
The 2007 Bentley Azure protects passengers in all directions with its side thorax airbags. It also comes standard with traction control, anti-lock brakes, stability control, roll bars, and parking sensors for the front and rear.
