BENTLEY : BENTAYGA RANGE, need one say anymore?


Bentayga 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 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.

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 Bentayga Diesel – Bentley’s first-ever diesel – which can travel more than 1,000km on one full tank of fuel.

Bentayga is unmistakably a Bentley. Its dynamic take on the established design language has created a range of SUVs with the perfect balance of performance and commanding SUV presence.

The signature sharp lines, flowing curves and seamless surfaces of Bentayga’s advanced aluminium exterior reflect a fresh take on the Bentley design language. The muscular powerline – the characteristic, sharply-defined crease that draws your eye from the front wheel along the side of the car – is the result of an innovative superforming technique, first pioneered by the aerospace industry. The B-shaped wing vent, extensive brightware and large, impressive wheels add a further level of striking detail.

Bentayga’s distinctive design cues don’t stop at the exterior. The interior is beautifully handcrafted, too. As ever, Bentley employs only the most exquisite materials. Beautiful wood veneers are carefully selected, cut and matched to create a seamless ‘ring of wood’ around the driver and passengers, or for a truly contemporary effect you can replace the wood with a hand-polished high-gloss carbon fibre*. Light floods into the cabin from the panoramic sunroof to reflect off the solid metal detailing with precision-knurled finish and the hand-stitched leather interior features. These exquisite touches highlight the unparalleled attention to detail found across the Bentayga range.

*Available to order from March 2018. Please contact your local Bentley dealer for details.
Rear Cabin Seat Configurations All Seats Up 1920x670.jpg


The Bentayga range offers the widest range of seat configurations in any SUV, with a choice of four, five or seven seats in one body style. In the seven-seat option, the two third-row seats fold and open electrically, while the second-row seats fold manually. Bentayga Mulliner is only available in the four or five seat configuration, in order to accommodate the highest levels of luxury and comfort.

The numbers speak for themselves. Bentayga and Bentayga Mulliner, which share an exceptionally powerful W12 engine, both have a top speed of 187 mph (301 km/h). The new Bentayga V8 reaches a top speed of 180 mph (290 km/h), powered by an innovative new V8 engine, and Bentayga Diesel is close behind with a top speed of 168 mph (270 km/h).

But Bentley’s attitude to performance goes far beyond speed. From the elevated driving position, you will experience astonishing levels of torque whatever your current engine speed, ensuring near-instantaneous acceleration whenever you require it.

Bentayga’s immense power is accompanied by exquisite control. The new optional carbon ceramic brakes* are the most powerful ever fitted to a Bentley. The discs are 370 mm in diameter at the rear and 440 mm at the front – the world’s largest front brake system – and deliver incredible stopping power. New disc shields optimise cooling airflow, while reduced brake judder and thermal fade ensure complete reliability in even the most extreme environments.

Bentayga passengers can explore a wide repertoire of rear seat entertainment options. This is accessed by two 10.2” entertainment tablets located on the back of the front seat headrests. These tablets are convenient and mobile (for use inside and away from the car) giving access to a world of TV, video entertainment, games, video calling and media streaming. As well as Bluetooth™ headphones, there is an extensive array of features including internal memory, micro SD and USB slots.

You can access Bentayga’s car infotainment system in the front cabin through touchscreen, rotary dials, gestures or voice, depending on user preference and driving conditions.

Naim Audio close up 1920x670.jpg


For the first time in a Bentley, there are three different sound systems to choose from: the Bentley system (as standard), Bentley Signature Audio and the sublime Naim for Bentley. Seamlessly integrated, the Naim for Bentley system is also the most powerful available in any SUV. Driven by a 1,950 Watt amplifier, it employs active bass speakers, which add another low-frequency dimension to the immersive audio experience. This allows sound to be ‘felt’ as well as heard. The twenty speakers include nine combined mid-range tweeters and a 300-watt sub-woofer. A pair of super-tweeters extends the high frequencies to give the system the widest frequency range ever experienced in a car. Whichever system you choose, Bentayga’s mood lighting can be adjusted to match the atmosphere of the cabin to the music.
