Bentley Bentayga 2016


A brand new model today, yes it hasn't been spotted on the road, but this Bentley Bantayga seen at the Knutsford dealership last month wasn't even road legal at the time. The Bentayga is the latest Bentley model to roll out of the Crewe factory and the first SUV of the brand. Being part of the VW group, we will recognise the platform used for the Bentayga as it it shared with the Audi Q7, the Porsche Cayenne and the Volkswagen Touareg. The front end however is definitely Bentley! Engine-wise, the Bentayga will use Bentley's new 6.0 twin-turbo W12 which produces 600bhp. 0-62mph should take the big SUV 4.1 seconds with a top speed of 187mph or 301km/h. Pretty impressive for a vehicle weighing nearly 2.5t! It seems like a diesel V8 could be available in the future but dates will need to be confirmed.
You might know I am not a SUV fan and I don't really like the look of this particular one. I think with a change of paint and alloys the car could look way better. Just look through some of the google images and you will understand what I mean!
Thanks again to the staff at Bentley Manchester, they always make you feel welcome, whether you are there to buy or not!
