The Bentayga is Bentley’s sector-defining fourth model line, the fastest, most powerful, most luxurious and most exclusive SUV in the world. With an all-new W12 powertrain, it offers a true Bentley driving experience and showcases innovative technology and features.
Designed, engineered and handcrafted in Crewe, the Bentayga’s styling is pure Bentley. Sculptural with an elegant, timeless execution, it perfectly balances athleticism and confidence. From the four round LED headlamps and large matrix grille, to the distinctive power line and muscular haunches, the Bentley DNA is apparent throughout.
The Bentley Bentayga W12 boasts the world’s finest automotive cabin, with unrivalled levels of precision. The detailing in metal, wood and leather – including meticulous tolerances between elements of trim – is the epitome of modern British luxury. This level of perfection is only achievable thanks to the exceptional craft and skill of Bentley’s colleagues in Crewe.
An all-new twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre W12 engine is at the heart of the new Bentayga. The mighty 12-cylinder unit combines efficiency and refinement with ultra-luxurious levels of power and torque. With 608 PS (600 bhp) and 900 Nm (663 lb. ft), delivering a 0-100km/h time of 4.1 seconds (0-60 mph time in 4.0 seconds) and a top speed of 301 km/h (187 mph), the Bentayga is the world’s fastest SUV (bar the Bentayga Speed).
An all-new chassis system allows the Bentley Bentayga W12 to take luxury to new places, with dedicated off-road modes for snow, sand, grass and trails. A pioneering 48V active anti-roll control system virtually eliminates body roll on the road, meaning the Bentayga is as suited to a spirited drive along a mountain pass as it is to any off-road environment.
