For enhanced safety, the front and rear seat shoulder belts of the Bentley Flying Spur have pretensioners to tighten the seatbelts and eliminate dangerous slack in the event of a collision. The BMW 7 Series doesn’t offer pretensioners for the rear seat belts.

A better fit can prevent injuries and the increased comfort also encourages passengers to buckle up. The BMW 7 Series doesn’t offer height-adjustable seat belts.

To provide maximum traction and stability on all roads, All-Wheel Drive is standard on the Flying Spur. But it costs extra on the 7 Series.

Both the Flying Spur and the 7 Series have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, driver and front passenger knee airbags, side-impact head airbags, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, blind spot warning systems, rearview cameras, available crash mitigating brakes, night vision systems, lane departure warning systems, around view monitors and rear cross-path warning.
