2007 Bentley Azure Makes For A Surprisingly Solid Used Buy

Despite the fact that this second-generation Bentley Azure lost about $300,000 in value in the past 10 years, getting a pre-owned model actually makes sense in 2017.

So, what would it be like to own one? Well, according to Doug DeMuro, you would definitely enjoy driving this luxury coupe on a daily basis, and flooring the throttle wouldn’t be as disappointing as you might think.

Before we get to that though, let’s run through what it feels like to sit behind the wheel of an Azure. DeMuro says that this is a very comfortable car, with a strong quality interior and plenty of features that certainly didn’t feel outdated back in 2007.

The Azure has a small color display between the instrument dials, a car phone, two door handles on each door, loads of wood, massage seats, six-level seat heater, a no-nonsense gauge cluster and a huge boot.

On the road, it glides the way a high end luxury car should, with very little road noise, if any, reaching the driver. This is very impressive for a soft-top car. Another positive is the fact that the Azure is by no means slow. It even sounds good when accelerating, according to DeMuro, but you obviously shouldn’t expect to have any actual “fun” behind the wheel of this British beast – it’s not a 911.

Raise your hand if you’d rather own a used Azure today or a brand new, well-equipped S-Class. They would cost about the same to purchase.

    lol you guys seem to be huge fans of Doug that you make a news out of every review. I think by now most of your readers are already familiar with him and who’s further interested in Doug’s reviews can subscribe to his channel on Youtube, so no need to upload every video here, unless, of course he pays you to do it 😉

    Cool car really but why did he have to dress like a 13yo?

    LOL.. i generally like Dougs reviews. But I don’t think he quite understands the Bentley. It not a car for people who have driven Mercedes all their lives and want something else. Its a car for people who have never driven in anything else in their lives and anything less would be intolerable. So it depreciates over night. what difference does it make it should last practically forever, and since there is little change there is little reason to continually buy and sell. Digital displays ? complicated sound systems ? sounds like a lot of work and fuss for what ? to brag to your friends? how crass. Ultimately if such things are a concern, perhaps you’d be better served by a more common motor, perhaps one of the German makes, or one of the Asian makes. They’re quite serviceable for daily commuting and such.
