The Bentley Continental Range is a new kind of American dream. The kind that begins with a starting price of $210,000. The car looks like almost a quarter of a million dollars too. This is a sports car with a streamlined appearance that is low to the ground, and every exterior finish is smooth and elegant.
Very few people would not love this vehicle. It packs a V8 engine that brings 542 horsepower (hp) to the table and gets you from 0 to 60 miles per hour (mph) in a sweet 3.4-second flat. One-tenth of a second can be shaved off with the W-12 engine at 626 hp that will get you there in 3.3.
This is a vehicle that you can take through the country and love every second or wheel around the track in style and glory. Its fuel economy rings in at 16 miles per gallon (mpg) on city roads and 26 mpg on the highway. This is a beautiful car that you will enjoy sitting in as well, with interior trim and technology that packs as much punch as its engine.
Many will say that this is a hard car to beat, but it compares well to the Rolls Royce Phantom, the Mercedes S class, and the Lincoln Navigator, at least as far as my preference is concerned. There is a little bit of normal with this luxury sports vehicle, is what I am saying if you’re looking for it. People that drive it don’t want to though. That’s why they get a Bentley. Here are more cars just like it that you will want to enjoy as well.
1. The Rolls Royce Phantom brings amazing horsepower comparable to the Bentley Continental
The Rolls Royce Phantom is a car that offers a little bit more than the Bentley, and it isn’t just in the name. You can see this in the starting price of $460,000 and every published road test ever. This car is the luxury dream that you expect it to be. With options, you are going over half a million on the cost of it alone. Nobody would be surprised if you dreamed about the Phantom for life.
The 6.75 V-12 engine is getting you 453 hp to start and from 0 to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds. The leather in here is real with some sources indicating it takes up to 16 hides to get the job done. The interior cabin is constructed with the finest mahogany, maple, or walnut, and its coach side doors open automatically. Fuel economy is fair for the size of the car, at 14 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway roads. This is a car that makes a statement even if you aren’t gearing up at the highest horsepower.
2. The Cadillac Escalade is among the most affordable luxury cars with similar horsepower to the Bentley
If you want the same kind of engine and style as the Bentley but don’t have a quarter of a million dollars, the Cadillac Escalade with a starting price of $78,000 will be the dream car for you. This comes with a 6.2-liter V8 engine that can reach 682 hp, slightly more impressive than the Bentley Continental Range, and it will get you from 0 to 60 seconds in 4.4 seconds.
The drive on this is a sweet one as well, where reports indicate that you can barely hear the engine move. You can upgrade this Cadillac if you want to spend more for a 3.0-liter diesel that will turn the low engine rumble into a louder noise. It will compromise your fuel economy somewhat. Without the diesel, you are driving on the city roads for 21 mpg and on the highway at 23 mpg.
The look of this car is beautiful on the inside as well, with trim and technology that you will expect to be in a car with this power. On the outside, it offers a boxy almost SUV or crossover style appearance that looks much different than the Bentley. You aren’t paying for real mahogany here, but many won’t even notice the difference in the drive.
3. The Bentley Flying Spur rings true to its name and compares with the Bentley Continental’s horsepower
The Bentley Flying Spur is another sweet ride with the Bentley logo on it and a starting price of $190,000 that offers an engine and an interior that will meet your expectations. This car comes with a 6.0-liter W13 engine that gives you 626 hp and gets you from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3.6 seconds. This is a high-performance vehicle that performs well on the roads and yields a fuel economy of 12 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway.
Inside the cabin, the appeal does not stop going. You are going to be working with genuine materials again including metal accents and the wood trim of your choice. A touchscreen dash display is part of the deal, and your back row will have its own remote touchscreen controller where it can control the windows, the temperature of the cabin, and even the in-seat massage stations.
4. The Mercedes Maybach S-Class is a high-performance luxury car that compares in horsepower and price to the Bentley Continental
If you want the look and drive of a Bentley but want a different name, the Mercedes Maybach S-class is an ideal choice. The Mercedes Maybach S Class is among the best in the world for luxury vehicles and starts with a lower sticker price than the Bentley. This Mercedes has a base of $185,950 and is beautiful inside and out. In addition to its sweet luxury look on the outside that rides like the class that it is, this offers the highest level of armour for armoured vehicles that come off of the traditional production line. This car can repel bullets from most firearms including AK-47 rifles.
It rides like a dream with a 6.0 liter V12 engine that brings 621 hp to the table and gets you from 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds. The fuel economy is nice as well, with 16 mpg for city driving and 25 mpg on the highway. The interior is spacious and beautiful with four captain’s seats that face each other and natural trim in the spacious exterior. It’s going to feel like flying in a plane, but you’re not, and you won’t even want to be.
The Lincoln Navigator is a sweet car that brings the price tag and natural trim away from the luxury model base, but it still has a lot to offer in terms of both beauty, style, and performance. The base on the Navigator starts at $78,405, and you’re still getting performance of 440 hp that gets you from 0 to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds. It brings with it a fuel economy of 16 mpg and 20 mpg which is also comparable to the Bentley.
The Lincoln Navigator looks like a vehicle you don’t want to mess with. This is a classic luxury vehicle that trickles towards the SUV class, but can still be a luxury drive. The exterior is sleek and fashionable with the boxy wagon and crossover style look that is meant to be imposing on the road. It offers five-seats in the spacious interior with captain’s seats in the front and luxury and fold-out captain’s seat in the rear with room for a very small fifth person in the middle.
6. The BMW i4 brings horsepower to the table where the Bentley may bring more style
If you are looking for a luxury vehicle that is better than most, you may not always start off looking at Beamers. Though the BMW brand is an upscale sedan producer, in many ways, it just doesn’t compare to cars like a Rolls, Bentley, or Lincoln. Still, you’ll love how it rides, looks, and feels. The BMW i4 starts at $51,400 and can reach 536 hp and 0 to 60 in 3.3 seconds. It’s an electric car to boot, and you are going to see up to 236 miles to the charge.

This vehicle comes with a 4.4-liter V8 engine that packs 523 hp and gets you from 0 to 60 mph in less than 6 seconds.
