To provide maximum traction and stability on all roads, All-Wheel Drive is standard on the Continental GT. But it costs extra on the E-Class Cabriolet.

An active infrared night vision system optional on the Continental GT helps the driver to more easily detect people, animals or other objects in front of the vehicle at night. Using an infrared camera and near-infrared lights to detect heat, the system then displays the image on a monitor in the dashboard. The E-Class Cabriolet doesn’t offer a night vision system.

Both the Continental GT and the E-Class Cabriolet have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front and rear side-impact airbags, driver knee airbags, side-impact head airbags, front and rear seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, available crash mitigating brakes, lane departure warning systems, around view monitors and rear cross-path warning.

The Bentley Continental GT weighs 615 to 1133 pounds more than the Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet. The NHTSA advises that heavier cars are much safer in collisions than their significantly lighter counterparts.

The Continental GT’s 6.0 turbo 12 cyl. produces 264 more horsepower (626 vs. 362) and 295 lbs.-ft. more torque (664 vs. 369) than the E 450 Cabriolet’s standard 3.0 turbo V6. The Continental GT’s 6.0 turbo 12 cyl. produces 197 more horsepower (626 vs. 429) and 280 lbs.-ft. more torque (664 vs. 384) than the AMG E 53 Cabriolet’s standard 3.0 turbo 6 cyl. hybrid.

An engine control system that can shut down half of the engine’s cylinders helps improve the Continental GT’s fuel efficiency. The E-Class Cabriolet doesn’t offer a system that can shut down part of the engine.

The Continental GT has 6.6 gallons more fuel capacity than the E-Class Cabriolet (24 vs. 17.4 gallons), for longer range between fill-ups.

The Continental GT offers a standard sequential manual gearbox (SMG). With no clutch pedal to worry about and a fully automatic mode, an SMG is much more efficient than a conventional automatic but just as easy to drive. The E-Class Cabriolet doesn’t offer an SMG or a conventional manual transmission.

The Continental GT’s launch control uses engine electronics to hold engine RPM’s precisely in order to provide the most stable and rapid acceleration possible, using all of the available traction. The E-Class Cabriolet doesn’t offer launch control.

For better traction, the Continental GT has larger standard tires than the E-Class Cabriolet (F:265/40R21 & R:305/35R21 vs. 245/45R18). The Continental GT’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the E-Class Cabriolet (F:275/35R22 & R:315/30R22 vs. F:245/45R18 & R:275/40R18).

The Continental GT’s standard 265/40R21 front and 305/35R21 rear tires provide better handling because they have a lower 40 series front and 35 series rear profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the E-Class Cabriolet 4MATIC’s standard 45 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Continental GT has standard 21-inch wheels. Smaller 18-inch wheels are standard on the E-Class Cabriolet. The Continental GT’s optional 22-inch wheels are larger than the 20-inch wheels optional on the E-Class Cabriolet.

The Continental GT has active sway bars, which help keep it flat and controlled during cornering, but disconnect at lower speeds to smooth the ride and offer greater off-road suspension articulation. This helps keep the tires glued to the road on-road and off. The E-Class Cabriolet doesn’t offer an active sway bar system.

The front and rear suspension of the Continental GT uses air springs for a smoother, controlled ride than the E-Class Cabriolet, which uses coil springs. Air springs maintain proper ride height and ride more smoothly.

The Continental GT offers an available adjustable active suspension system, which counteracts cornering forces actively, limiting body roll and improving handling and stability. Mercedes doesn’t offer an active suspension on the E-Class Cabriolet.

For better handling and stability, the track (width between the wheels) on the Continental GT is 2.1 inches wider in the front and 2.4 inches wider in the rear than the average track on the E-Class Cabriolet.

The Continental GT has a standard center folding armrest for the rear passengers. A center armrest helps make rear passengers more comfortable. The E-Class Cabriolet doesn’t offer a rear seat center armrest.
