Summary

The Bentayga is already Bentley's most popular model, and the least-expensive way to get a car with a Flying B on its nose. The facelifted Bentley Bentayga delivers updated interior and exterior designs, new infotainment system, and powertrain changes. The base price is about $50,000 less than that of the Continental GT and the difference is something you'd only notice after driving.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Rundown

Sentiment Score[*] 76%
Reviewers from autocar have found the following[***]:
The Bentayga is one of the most versatile vehicles you can buy at any money. It can emulate the refinement of a limousine fit for royalty and a few minutes later to do the Unimog thing over battlefield terrain. At one end of the dynamic spectrum, its performance is never compromised by what it does at the other.

  • Gorgeous interior
  • Excellent off-roading
Cons[**]
  • Not the most refined

autoexpress[2]

Sentiment Score[*] 58%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following[***]:
The Bentayga Hybrid's main source of propulsion is a single-turbo 3.0-litre V6 that can also be found in a variety of other, rather less expensive cars within the VW empire. This is mated to 17.3kWh lithium-ion battery and an electric motor that boosts the V6's outputs from around 340bhp/450Nm to 443bhp and 700Nm combined. There are three modes; EV, Hybrid and Hold. In EV you use only the battery; in Hybrid the car works out which is the most efficient combination of propulsion, taking into account your driving style. In Hold it works out how to keep as much charge as possible in the battery so that, in town, you can switch to EV mode and still have plenty of charge left.

Pros[**]
  • Powerful V6
  • Comfortable ride
  • Excellent infotainment system
Cons[**]
  • No fast charge capability
  • No hybrid option

autoexpress[3]

Sentiment Score[*] 75%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following[***]:
The Bentayga SUV has been brought more into line with the family look. The front, which gains higher-set headlights and a larger, more upright grille, is still best described as imposing. The only engine available at launch is the 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8, which is essentially unaltered from before.

Pros[**]
  • Brilliant new looks
  • Fantastic cabin quality
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Sentiment Score[*] 68%
Reviewers from cnet have found the following[***]:
Bentley's new Bentayga Hybrid has a 3.0-liter V6 engine and 94-kilowatt electric motor. The battery pack can be recharged from a Level 2 (240-volt) outlet in 2.5 hours. The suspension does a fine job of ironing out road imperfections, even on 22-inch wheels.

Pros[**]
  • Powerful V8 engine
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Easy-to-use infotainment system
Cons[**]
  • Not as fun to drive as V8- or W12-powered models
  • Only 16 miles of electric range

cnet[5]

Sentiment Score[*] 80%
Reviewers from cnet have found the following[***]:
The big Bentayga is a pretty agile thing, despite its size and weight. Bentley Dynamic Ride 48-volt antiroll bars keep this big boy flat as a pancake through corners. The 10.9-inch touchscreen runs a reskinned version of Audi's MIB3 software, complete with wireless Apple CarPlay and wired Android Auto.

Pros[**]
  • Powerful V8
  • Fantastic infotainment tech
  • Comfortable ride
Cons[**]
  • Not the most athletic of Bentaygas

Sentiment Score[*] 62%
Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The Bentayga Hybrid's greatest asset isn't its fuel efficiency or performance – it's the way it drives. Its copious torque and smooth, quiet operation are exactly the qualities this revered British automaker is known for. A full recharge from a standard household outlet takes 7.5 hours. Bentley offers a three-year warranty with unlimited mileage.

Pros[**]
  • Elegant interior
  • Excellent off-road performance
  • Excellent infotainment system
Cons[**]
  • No DC fast-charging option
  • No hybrid option
