Bentley has redefined the Luxury SUV once again, with their release of the new Bentayga. Though the nameplate already bears the distinction of being the category’s benchmark, the British marque has undoubtedly raised the bar with this recent development. As the first car released under Bentley’s Beyond100 Business Plan, the brand’s bold new direction coming from its centennial year, the 2020 Bentayga is the new standard when it comes to the ultimate symmetry of power, luxury and usability.
They have dialed-up its every facet, starting with performance. The new Bentayga’s powerplant is a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 Gasoline engine that delivers a commanding 542 bhp and 770 Newton-meters of Torque. This translates to effortless power with the refinement that Bentley is world-renowned for. As for aesthetics, its new exterior design from front to rear adopts Bentley’s unmistakable design DNA that’s carried across the entire model range. It is bold yet sophisticated. Muscular, but decidedly elegant.
The Bentayga’s interior features totally new seats and trim- the dark tint diamond brushed aluminum finish is a first for Bentley. Leg room has also been increased to provide maximum comfort. A next-generation infotainment system utilizes a 10.9-inch vivid display with super-high resolution graphics as its main interface, to complement the system’s dramatically improved connectivity. Apple Carplay and Android Auto come as standard, but an expanded suite of My Bentley connected services via an embedded SIM enhances luxurious comfort and convenience all the more.
With over 20,000 handcrafted Bentaygas already produced since the car’s launch, certainly more than any of its competition, the nameplate is set to write an indelible success story for the Bentley brand. The new Bentayga V8 also has Hybrid and performance-oriented Speed models in the pipeline, and will be made available in the nearest future. As the new benchmark of its segment, the Bentley Bentayga is indeed the definitive Luxury SUV.
