The Bentley Bentayga is our most significant launch in over a decade. It is a car that takes Bentley’s world-class engineering, design and craftsmanship expertise to new heights, and redefines what an SUV can be in the eyes of an ever-growing New Luxury audience. With its unrivalled combination of luxury and performance, it creates an entirely new segment in the SUV market, the luxury D-segment sports utility vehicle, which we intend to dominate. And this is just the beginning.
This is the most exclusive and most expensive SUV available today. On first look, the reinterpretation of Bentley’s design language is clear: the contemporary lines hint at our future brand aesthetic, but it’s still recognisably a Bentley. Design features such as four round lamps, a large matrix grille, power-lines and the rear haunch – familiar design flairs – lend the car an elegant yet purposeful appearance in an entirely new form, but it’s not only about aesthetics. The body is created from an intelligent material mix consisting of 60% aluminium and 40% high-strength steel. This maximises rigidity and agility, thus making it elegant yet purposeful in structure too.
Under the bonnet lies a real innovation. The Bentayga is powered by an all-new, highly-efficient 12-cylinder engine with the best power, torque and economy combination of any SUV. Our engineering and hand-manufacturing experts in Crewe have risen to the challenge of creating an engine with class-leading performance, drivability, response and refinement, while setting a new standard in D-segment levels of fuel economy. This solidifies our position as the world’s leading producer of 12-cylinder engines.
The completely redesigned engine ensures maximum performance on all terrains – something the Bentayga excels at – coupled with other innovations that increase comfort and safety. More than 10 new Driver Assistance systems are available, as is the new Drive Dynamics Mode, which caters to a customer’s specific driving style or mood. And at high or low speeds, on or off the road, Bentley Dynamic Ride – the world’s first 48-volt anti-roll system – offers exceptional comfort and handling for a smooth, confident journey.
