Sharing the MLB platform with the second-generation Audi Q7 and the third-generation Porsche Cayenne, Audi Q8, and Lamborghini Urus, the Bentayga debuted as the world's fastest crossover / SUV in 2016.

Reviewer score 71% (normalized by Neofiliac)
Reviewers from autoexpress have found:
Bentley has gone bold with its first ever SUV. The Bentayga promises to raise the bar for upmarket off-roaders. It shares a fair chunk of its underpinnings with the current Audi Q7 SUV. We were surprised to discover that the new Bentley doesn't quite have the Range Rover's sense of occasion or kit count.
Pros
  • Fantastic off-road capability
  • Powerful V8 engine
Cons
  • Lacks up-to-date cabin tech

carmagazine[2]

Reviewers from carmagazine have found:
VW Group’s 3.0-litre V6 is relatively seamless – but still abrupt enough to be noticed. It's quiet enough when driven sedately, with the electric motor helping it feel like a larger powerplant. But push harder and it's coarse and gravelly when revving, which sounds a tad uncouth. Performance is certainly brisk with 0-62mph taking 5.5sec, but those hoping for a proper wallop in the back will be somewhat disappointed.
Pros
  • Powerful V6
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Good range
Cons
  • Lacklustre performance
  • V6 lacks refinement
  • No 48v anti-roll bars

Reviewers from cnet have found:
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

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found:
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
