Bentley’s entering the world of SUVs turned out well, since response from experts and public is only positive, even enthusiastic. All Bentley models are built on advanced technology as well as emotions drivers feel when driving them. Let us now look at Bentayga from this perspective.

 

Right after the Bentayga’s launch even conservative car magazines started to describe it as the world’s best SUV. Such is the marketing power of the British marque Bentley, with good awareness of how important the long teasing towards their historically first SUV has been. Today we know exactly how the revolutionary model looks, what does it offer technically, and some know even how it feels to drive it. And probably everyone agrees that this Bentley will write the automotive history with big bold letters.

 

Bentayga’s development took a long time, and despite daring visualizations that leaked out, the car is conservative, representing typical signature design from British Crewe. We can definitely call it one of the most beautiful SUVs and not mean it as an advertising slogan. Distinctive matrix grille with four round headlamps is typical for the Brits; the outer pair are equipped with LED rings just for day lighting and the inside pair are fully-fledged headlights, also with full LED.

Bentayga pleases all basic human senses, and we can include the sixth – our sense for safety. Bentayga leaves an impression before you even sit in it. Graceful bodywork lines show advanced manufacturing processes that are the pride of today’s industry. Opening the door and a glimpse of the interior is an experience to look forward to every morning. A big role in the overall impression is played by chosen interior coloring, but even in all-black version this magnificent English machine radiates the sense of value, prestige and ultimate comfort.

Contact with a luxury automobile depends largely on materials used in the interior. Like other Bentley models, Bentayga features iconic leather quilting, shiny wood veneers and metallic accessories with chrome effects. Short gear lever of the automatic transmission is aiming to be not only functional, but also an aesthetic element of the center console which comes with a robust armrest.

The back of the cockpit can be customized, with the choice of four or five seats. Both versions can be considered extremely comfortable even for long rides, but in the 4-seat version passengers can enjoy more prestigious seating with spacious center console.

Speaking of senses, driver’s hearing is pleased by superb sounds of the well-known Bentley W12 engine with the power of 447kW (600bhp) and maximal torque 900Nm available from 1350rpm. Beautiful data and even more beautiful sound, just look at the response from enthusiastic drivers on the internet and listen to the roar of 6.6-liter gas engine. This one we know well from other models; it seems it has been performing so well that it got a chance in a completely new category which Bentley has just entered. 12-cylinder engine works together with 8-speed automatic transmission ZF, there is a permanent all-wheel drive with torque distribution 40:60 in favor of the back axle.

And last, but not least – “taste”. Are you wondering how will we incorporate it into the new Bentayga? Metaphorically, you will taste it every morning when the idea of driving this SUV will get you out of bed. It applies to every Bentley that its owner never gets tired or bored. To achieve this effect is a demanding task where every single detail plays its role, even if often considered not essential. And in designing and manufacturing Bentley Bentayga every detail had to be essential – they wanted to change the world in Crewe…
