The company is making bold claims about the new Bentley Bentayga SUV. To start, the auto manufacturer claims that it is “the fastest, most luxurious, and most exclusive SUV in the world.” They also state that it is the most important launch in the company’s history as it brings in a new type of luxury for its class. Even though you might think otherwise about these claims, Bentley is still headed for a new marketing direction and this SUV represents a new era for the company.
Bentley Bentayga SUV Presents a New Era
The Bentley Bentayga SUV boasts 600bhp with the assistance of its new twin-turbocharged W12 engine. This was based off of the underpinnings of the next Porsche Cayenne. Unsurprisingly, it also has an electronic four wheel-drive system. Therefore, it has a kind of straight line performance that you would normally find in a sports car.
When it comes to driving from 0 to 60mph, the new Bentley Bentayga is claimed to reach that speed in a matter of 4.0-seconds. Top speed is a surreal 187mph. These are all from a vehicle that weighs 2,440-kilograms and with dimension of 5,140 x 1,742 x 2,224-millimeters wide.
As you would expect it to be, the interiors of the new Bentayga SUV is pretty special. It is not just a roomy cabin as it is a direct rival of the Land Rover. The materials found inside are made from ultra-high quality leather, wood, and turned aluminum which can be seen in many parts of the interior.
For the drive modes, there are no less than eight different ones. These can all be selected even while the car is on the move. Interestingly though, there is no low range setting found in the eight-speed automatic gearbox. The company’s engineers claim that this option is not needed as there is already a 900Nm of torque which is available at 1,350rpm.
This vehicle that has been named after a mountain from the Canary Islands performs smoothly right off the bat. It drives composed and it screams high quality. The steering feels natural and intuitive, even though this is the company’s first ever electric helm. The weighting, in particular, is well-judged.
The Bentley Bentayga SUV is an incredible vehicle for a great number of reasons. It is as every bit of a good ride as the company claims it to be. It is no doubt that the car manufacturer has stepped up their game and they do mean business.
