Bentleys new Bentayga 4*4 model is a one of a kind master piece. This is one of the fastest production SUV’s ever built. Looking at the Bentley Bentayga on first impressions it looks great and really expensive. The overall shape looks attractive with its front nose similar to the other Bentleys produced like the Bentley Continentals and the rear looks modern and unique. It has a look of opulence and elegance. You know your a wealthy man driving one of these.
The interior is very luxurious with leather seats and fine wood trims. It has a wealth of standard features with a great modern responsive 8inch touchscreen digital screen. The options are few as this car comes with most features as standard. Some options include city pack for traffic assist, interior mood lighting, more sun visors and a few other things. The Bentayga has a 430-litre boot and is down on the 550-litre load bay you’ll find in the Range Rover and also smaller than the 475 litres offered in the Flying Spur saloon.
There are 2 engines to choose one petrol and one diesel. The petrol is a beast of an engine that is 6.0litre with 600 bhp that goes from 0-60mph in 4 seconds with a top speed of 187mph and a combined 21.6mpg. The diesel has a 4.0litre, 8-cylinder Bentley engine delivering a top speed of 168 mph (270 km/h) and 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds (0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds).
Bentley’s first diesel engine is also triple-charged – harnessing two turbo chargers and an electric powered compressor. This system delivers a dynamic response, far quicker than conventional turbochargers, especially at low speeds. This is the fastest diesel SUV available.
This car is something special as its still a fast car but also luxurious and Bentley seem to have got the mix just right. It has great off road capabilities just like the Range Rover, but not as good.
