For enhanced safety, the front seat shoulder belts of the Bentley Flying Spur are height-adjustable to accommodate a wide variety of driver and passenger heights. A better fit can prevent injuries and the increased comfort also encourages passengers to buckle up. The Rolls-Royce Ghost doesn’t offer height-adjustable seat belts.

The Flying Spur offers optional Bentley Safeguard Plus, which use forward mounted sensors to warn the driver of a possible collision ahead. If the driver doesn’t react and the system determines a collision is imminent, it automatically applies the brakes at full-force in order to reduce the force of the crash or avoid it altogether. The Ghost offers an available collision warning system without the automated brake feature that would prevent or reduce the collision if the driver fails to react.

The Flying Spur has all-wheel drive to maximize traction under poor conditions, especially in ice and snow. The Ghost doesn’t offer all-wheel drive.

The Flying Spur’s blind spot warning system uses digital cameras monitored by computer to alert the driver to moving objects in the vehicle’s blind spots where the side view mirrors don’t reveal them. The Ghost doesn’t offer a system to reveal objects in the driver’s blind spots.

To help make backing safer, the Flying Spur’s optional cross-path warning system uses wide-angle radar in the rear bumper to alert the driver to vehicles approaching from the side, helping the driver avoid collisions. The Ghost doesn’t offer a cross-path warning system.

Both the Flying Spur and the Ghost have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, driver and front passenger knee airbags, side-impact head airbags, front and rear seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, rearview cameras, available night vision systems, lane departure warning systems and around view monitors.
