Overview

  • Powerful V8 engine
  • Lots of driving modes
  • Plenty of interior options
  • Plug-in hybrid isn't as fun to drive as the V8

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.

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.

Sentiment Score[*] 76%
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.
