Bentley has officially revealed the new Bentayga after images of it leaked online.
It’s claimed to be the fastest SUV ever built and the levels of luxury you get are astounding.
It offers the widest range of on- and off-road drive settings of any vehicle via Bentley’s Drive Dynamics Mode and optional Responsive Off-Road Setting. Up to eight modes are available, allowing drivers, at the simple turn of a dial, to select the perfect dynamic set-up for any surface or road condition.
In urban environments, there are a number of driver aids available on the Bentayga. These systems – such as Traffic Sign Recognition, which detects a wide variety of traffic signs and displays information to the driver; Rear Crossing Traffic Warning, which uses radar technology to detect crossing traffic when reversing out of a parking space; and Top View, a system which uses four cameras to display an overall picture of the vehicle’s surroundings.
The Bentayga’s all-new eight-inch touch screen infotainment system boasts class-leading navigation technology, a 60GB hard drive, and a choice of up to 30 languages.
Rear seat passengers benefit from the introduction of the Bentley Entertainment Tablet – a removable 10.2-inch Android device with 4G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for effortless, high-speed on-board connectivity.
A W12 engine powers this leviathan. This 6,0-litre twin-turbo unit combines efficiency and refinement with the luxury of unrivalled power and torque.
It is claimed to be the most technologically advanced 12-cylinder engine in the world and develops 447kW and 900 Nm.
These outputs result in equally impressive performance figures. It’s capable of dispatching the sprint to 100km/h in around 4.0 seconds and a top-speed of 301km/h.
