The Bentley Bentayga SUV is officially the fastest and exclusive SUV in the world. It also boasts of incredible features and lots of equipment.
The highly-anticipated Bentley Bentayga SUV has finally been revealed and even though some might not really fancy the design, you just cannot deny the fact that the car oozes of rich and premium appeal inside out. The front of the Bentayga carries a similar face like its siblings and there is nothing much that can go wrong with this design. The honeycomb grille is still one of the best out there. The side profile is proper SUV-ish and has just the right amount of chrome that also makes it stand out. The rear again has similar tail lights that are used on other Bentleys and the dual exhausts look very distinct.
The Bentley Bentayga also gets very stylish alloy wheels and overall the vehicle seems like a well-finished luxurious product. From certain angles, it does remind us of the Audi Q5/Q7 though. Talking about the interiors, well, what can you expect from a Bentley. Top class materials obviously have been used but the design is just too good. The styling is very smooth-flowing everywhere and the combination of wooden trim and dual-tone leather looks very suave. There are a good amount of buttons to fiddle around with but not so many that would confuse the driver.
The Bentayga comes with features like panoramic sunroof, 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with 60 GB hard drive, removable 10.2-inch tablet with 4G, WiFi and Bluetooth for rear passengers, Naim audio system producing 1950 Watts. The party piece of the SUV is the huge number of customisations that are available. There are 90 exterior hues, 15 carpet options, seven handcrafted veneers, 15 choices of interior trim hide and lots of alloy wheel designs ranging from 20-inch to 22-inch. The vehicle also comes with Drive Dynamics Mode, Off-Road Setting, adjustable springs with four ride height options, Traffic Assist, Park Assist and Adaptive Cruse Control.
Powering the fastest, most powerful and most exclusive SUV in the world is a 6-litre twin-turbocharged W12 TSI engine that belts out 608 PS of power at 5250-6000 RPM and 900 Nm of torque at 1250-4000 RPM. The engine is mated to a ZF 8-speed automatic gearbox and the Bentayga has permanent AWD. It comes with ventilated discs all around. The SUV has a top speed of 301 km/hr and the run from 0-100 km/hr takes just 4.1 seconds. The fuel tank capacity is 85-litres. The vehicle has a combined fuel efficiency of 12.8 km/l.
