Bentley expands the horizons for its ultra-luxe SUV.
The Bentley Bentayga has always been a head-turner, a perfect melding of luxury and performance in an SUV package. But just when you thought the upper echelons of auto engineering couldn’t go any higher, Bentley drops a bombshell. A slew of jaw-dropping new features has just been announced for their Bentayga range, making it even more irresistible to those who seek the pinnacle of SUV comfort, luxury, and indulgence.
For those who appreciate the Bentayga’s already impressive visual aesthetics, you’ll be thrilled to hear that Bentley has introduced a host of new exterior colors, including seven new satin paints that provide a sleek and modern matte finish. In addition, an all-new 21-inch multi-spoke wheel option is now available in three distinct finishes. This new wheel style doesn’t just add flair; it adds a sophisticated polish that’s particularly befitting of luxury-focused models.
The introduction of Electronic All Wheel Steering across the Bentayga lineup is a game-changer. While standard on the Azure and ‘S’ models, it’s optional for the rest, but what it brings to the table is extraordinary: a 7% reduction in turning radius at slow speeds, making urban maneuverability a breeze. But this system isn’t just about tight corners. At higher speeds, the rear wheels make subtle adjustments in tandem with the front, ensuring confidence during lane changes and sweeping bends.
Now, if you’ve ever thought about how a seat could contribute to your well-being, the Bentayga has you covered. The new postural adjustment system, developed in collaboration with a chiropractor, constantly adjusts to ensure the occupant’s comfort over long drives. This world-leading technology is now an optional feature for all standard wheelbase Bentaygas, echoing the revolutionary Airline Seat that was introduced with the extended wheelbase Bentayga model.
Adding to the luxury, safety, and convenience alike, Bentley has also amped up driver assistance tech with Intelligent Park Assist, 3D Surround View, and Emergency Assist among others. To give the driver a complete overview, the instrument panel now offers real-time visualizations of the road ahead.
The new standard cabin carpeting made from 100% recycled nylon indicates Bentley’s attention to sustainability without compromising on luxury, while delivering the same comfort level as carpets made from newly produced nylon. The new deep pile overmats in the Azure and A models, which are available as an option otherwise, are pure wool, providing a feel that can only be termed as heavenly. And speaking of luxury, the introduction of ‘Bang & Olufsen for Bentley’ takes the in-cabin audio experience to sublime new levels, featuring Bang & Olufsen’s signature speaker grille design, as well as sound modes that cater to different moods and correspond with different colors.
Come September, Bentley will be introducing a new model labeled simply as ‘A’. It serves as a stepping stone into the ultra-luxury realm for those who are eyeing the Azure but want a taste of Bentley’s opulence first. It features a simplified color palette, but standard features include massage seats, seat heating and ventilation, and a choice between three open-pore veneers.
The Bentley Bentayga was already a towering presence in the luxury SUV market, and these new features only serve to solidify its position. Whether you prioritize driving dynamics, in-cabin comfort, or simply want to make a statement, the upgraded Bentayga range has got something for everyone. In the ever-competitive arena of luxury SUVs, Bentley continues to raise the bar yet again with the excellent Bentayga.
