Corniche versus Azure

If a car company takes around a decade to do something that people want, generally the people will do it themselves beforehand.

That is why I have always expected to find a Rolls Royce Silver Seraph based Bentley Corniche.

Think about it. All it is a grill, badge and wheel swap. Surely one of the 374 owners would have thought about it. But a picture has never popped up.

You would also get the new version of of the Bentley Azure. Kind of.

Let's take a closer look at the Corniche versus the Azure.

Besides the obvious front headlights that are pre 2005, with a Bentley grill, badges and wheels it would look like an Azure.

But take a close look at the coach line. It is surprisingly quite different.

The Corniche is straight, whilst the Azure has a distinct arch over the rear wheel.

I would have to say, the Azure coach line styling does the job a little better visually in my opinion.

But I would take either.

You fail to consider the rear end. The styling on the rear end lights pales to the Corniche.
