Bentley raises the bar again with the definitive luxury SUV, the new Bentley Bentayga, offering the ultimate in power, luxury and usability.

02 Jul 2020 | International News : U.K.

Bentley has announced details of the new Bentayga - the definitive luxury SUV, and the first car launched under Bentley's Beyond100 business plan.

With more than 20,000 Bentaygas handcrafted since the car's launch - more than any of its competitors - the new Bentayga is set to build on an incredible success story to date.

Bold styling offers an imposing presence, with every front panel redesigned for a cleaner, modern look
The new model will initially be launched in V8 guise, offering supercar performance balanced with everyday usability, with the Plug-in Hybrid and W12-powered Speed versions to follow later this year. The V8 variant's 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged petrol engine develops an impressive 542bhp and 770Nm of torque.

A new exterior design adopts the Bentley design DNA now prevalent across the entire model range, giving Bentley the freshest and most modern product family of any luxury car company. Introducing the very latest onboard technology and an even more cosseting cabin, the
new model is significantly revised both inside and out.

Key to the new Bentayga is its strikingly dynamic look, which draws inspiration from the marque's new design language, introduced by the third-generation Continental GT and the all new Flying Spur. Together, the three cars form a new family that are more visually connected than ever before. The larger, assertive matrix grille is now more upright, while new, intelligent LED matrix headlamp technology includes the signature Bentley design inspired by cut crystal glassware. Heated, wet-arm windscreen wipers are introduced for the first time, with 22 washer jets in each arm.

Introduced for the first time, the elliptical rear lamps' lattice pattern offers a unique jewellery-like appearance when illuminated
At the rear, the new Bentayga has undergone a major transformation, with a total redesign of the rear surfaces including a new full-width tailgate with new encapsulated lamps, while the licence plate has been moved down into the bumper for a cleaner appearance.

Wide, split tailpipes leave no doubt that this is a powerful performance car. A 20mm increase to the rear track width brings dynamic benefits and repositions the wheels in their arches to improve the car's stance. The wheels themselves are a new design, unique to the Bentayga.

The Bentayga's highly praised interior has been significantly revised in the latest model. Among the major changes are a new centre console and steering wheel, new door trims and all new seats - now available with ventilation in the rear of the five-seat cabin option. Passengers in the rear also enjoy significantly more space, with legroom increased by up to 100mm depending on configuration. A next generation infotainment system is integrated seamlessly into the handcrafted, Bentley 'wing' dashboard design and features a 10.9-inch display screen with edge-to-edge graphics.

The latest hardware and software bring offer navigation with satellite maps, online search and other features. Wireless Apple CarPlay is standard for the first time, alongside the existing wired system, along with Android Auto.

Rear seat occupants benefit from the introduction of a new, larger touchscreen remote control tablet, similar to that introduced in the all new Flying Spur. Connectivity around the car has been significantly improved, with USB-C data ports and a wireless phone charger now standard.

The new Bentayga is now provided with an embedded SIM, as with the latest Continental GT models, meaning My Bentley connected car features no longer require customers to provide their own data connection. My Bentley in-car and remote services is a continually developing range of services available to customers through a dedicated app, available both on Apple iOS and Android mobile platforms.
