Loaded with the latest safety tech, the Bentayga is one of the safest SUVs

Safety and After Sales Service – The Bentayga gets up to 8 airbags and other safety aids commonly found in luxury cars. The strong build and good dynamics are an added assurance. Being an exclusive brand, the service is likely to be top-notch. However, the Bentayga is very pricey to maintain, something we can say about all cars in this segment. The Bentayga commands a yearly insurance of Rs. 15-17 lakhs.

Luxury SUV buyers looking to get behind the wheel will love the Bentayga

Verdict – The Bentayga is a finely balanced SUV. It is big on performance and equally big on comfort and luxury. And this dual personality is what we absolutely love about the Bentayga. It can take you across continents fast and in utmost comfort. It also stays true to its luxury positioning in other areas like build quality and interiors. Sure, it could’ve done with less ordinary design language but the biggest concern is the price. With a starting price of Rs. 3.77 crores, the Bentayga costs a king’s ransom. This is the introductory price for the V8 petrol excluding the taxes and options. Basically, Bentley gives you a cheese Margherita and you could choose your toppings which can go so expensive that they could cost as much as half the price of the car! But the high sticker price is justified by how well-rounded the Bentayga is. If you want a luxury SUV that can entertain you behind the wheel and impress you with its performance, the Bentayga is hard to resist.
