The Bentayga is a beast on road with a curb weight of 5400 pounds. The SUV has everything to offer to its customers with an engaging engine to ride and air suspension to take down corners. It is one of the best SUVs made although the luxury of having it comes for a decent price that may not fit inside everyone’s pocket.
Although, in order to justify to defile what really the Bentley Bentayga is, we need to take a close look at the SUV. Let’s dive in:
Driving & Performance
With the 2018 Bentley Bentayga what you are getting is a roaring engine that without a doubt will take down any passing vehicle. The car is very swift in its pursuit. With the Bentley Bentayga, you get the following:
· Engine: 6.0-liter engine
· Max. Power: 600 horsepower
· Max. Torque: 663 pound-feet
· Performance: 0 to 60mph in just 4 seconds.
Although this is a very heavy engine, you get plenty of control and great handling characteristics to control this gigantic mammoth of a car. With such great acceleration and heavy weight, you need will also need a decent braking system. Well, this car doesn’t let you down as it has massive disc brakes on all wheels for better control. The gear changes are also very swift and you hardly get any noise in the cabin even while revving the motor. The SUV can handle some decent off-roading as well, if you ever feel like you need to escape the shackles of civilization. In on rough terrain, this doesn’t feel like a particularly heavy vehicle that doesn’t feel like one.
As mentioned before, this is a high-end luxury car. The Bentayga SUV offers you some of the richest material that you can finds. The cabin inside the car envelops the passenger in pure luxury. It is a four-seater and can be made to accommodate even a fifth one. You get ample space with a variety of adjustments, ventilation, and massage functions.
The automatic climate controlled very easily all you have to is just turn it on. The best part about the system, though, is its dual climate control ability, even for the rear passengers. The front row on the car has also got ample space for the driver and front passenger. The infotainment system is regular, and just like every other car, comes with an infotainment screen in the center console. The leather seats of the car should be compared to either Prada or Hermes. To further add some flavor to the interiors, you get a metal accents and metal knobs in the cabin. There are a few plastic buttons in there too, but overall, the look and feel of the car is very premium.
If looks are to be considered, then this Bentley SUV gets 5/5 in terms of looks and uniqueness. You get the signature round LED headlamps in the front, and a very long sweeping hood as well. At the very first glance, this seems more like a raised Continental GT. Also, the front grille on the car makes it extremely appealing as well. It is surely a vehicle that will grab people’s attention on the road.
You can get anything in the world but nothing is more precious than your life. Therefore, it becomes necessary to judge the SUV on the basis of safety. The SUV has all the safety that you might expect from a vehicle of this sort. Also, since the Bentayga has not been tested for NHTSA and IIHS, therefore, nothing much can be said about the vehicle.
It is an exceptional and one of its kind. It is a blend of both power and comfort, and it even has the looks to boot. Although the vehicle is certainly impressive, it comes for a hefty price of $195,800. Still, it is truly a one-of-a-kind car, and is only for those people who can both appreciate and afford this car (latter takes precedence over the former). If you have 200 grand lying around, buying this car is a good way to spend that money.
