Bentley Bentayga SUV was created for the person who wants to seek new landscapes and take a fresh look at their world– to see through new eyes. For Bentayga will reveal new ways to experience familiar journeys on the road and deliver new journeys in new environments off-road. It was by understanding these needs and desires that led Bentley to reappraise, reshape and redefine the luxury SUV, and what it is capable of.
Bentley Bentayga is everything you would expect from an SUV created by Bentley. The most luxurious, hand-built, all-terrain vehicle on Earth. A car where technology, speed and power and have been brought together to offer an extraordinary driving experience. And an SUV that can be tailored to your own unique taste, through matchless levels of personalisation and a wide range of options.
There are three models in the range. The new Bentayga Mulliner is the pinnacle of luxury – the ultimate expression of the world’s most luxurious SUV. Bentayga, with its W12 engine, is the world’s fastest SUV. Then there is Bentley Bentayga Diesel – Bentley’s first-ever diesel – which can travel more than 1,000km on one full tank of fuel.
Bentley offers a variety of powertrains for the Bentayga. On the low end, you have a 443-hp hybrid arrangement with a turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 and an electric motor. Then there’s the 542-hp twin-turbo V-8 engine. We haven’t driven the former, but we can tell you that the latter emits a hearty burble on its way to 60 mph, which it does in just 3.8 seconds. The Bentayga Speed ups the ante with a 626-hp W-12. Back in 2017, when the Speed made 600 ponies, this supersmooth powerhouse delivered a 3.6-second result in our 60-mph test. The W-12’s power delivery is creamier than the V-8’s, and its performance felt more robust during passing maneuvers. Bentley claims that the Bentayga Speed, with a claimed top speed of 190 mph, is the fastest SUV in the world (although the Lamborghini Urus might have something to say about that). Regardless of what’s under the hood, all Bentaygas utilize an eight-speed automatic transmission and come standard with all-wheel drive.
