The Highly Anticipated Bentley Bentayga Is Officially Here

Bentley Bentayga

Described as the fastest, most powerful and luxurious SUV ever, the Bentley Bentayga has finally been introduced to the world. With a front fascia reminiscent of the Continental GT and Flying Spur, the sleek crossover features LED headlights, a front skid plate, B-shaped front fender vents and muscular rear haunches.

Also worth mentioning are the aluminum roof rails, a slightly awkward rear end and 20- to 22-inch alloys. The exterior design isn’t really meant for everyone: you either love it or hate it, right away. Inside the cabin, however, there’s a different story. With a familiar split cockpit design, premium leather upholstery and a choice of seven different veneers, I doubt anyone will deny feeling spoiled by this beauty.

The driver will also enjoy metallic accents, an infotainment system with an eight-inch display and 22-way adjustable front seats with heating, ventilation and massage functions. Bentley also added a panoramic glass roof to the luxurious mix, with an interesting feature being that if sun is too bright, the entire glass surface can be obscured via an electric full-length roller blind. Pretty cool, right?

It seems that Bentley will also offer a four-seat variant of the SUV, featuring two individual adjustable rear seats, with heating, ventilation and massage functions. Separated by a small center console, which has cup holders, storage compartments and USB charging ports, these seats seem like the best ones in the house.

Customers may also choose from a wide list of options, such as a 1950 watt Naim for Bentley Premium Audio system and stylish 10.2 inch Android Bentley Entertainment Tablets. The luxurious SUV is powered by a massive twin-turbo 6.0L W12 engine, good for around 600 hp and 900 Nm of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and a four-wheel drive system.

Don’t be fooled by its large size or comfortable accommodations, as the Bentley Bentayga will do 0 to 62 mph in 4.0 seconds flat towards a top speed of 187 mph (301 km/h).  First deliveries are scheduled for early 2016, although we’ve no clues on pricing just yet.
