2017 Bentley Bentayga will be the first ever SUV car Bentley has ever made. It’s been almost a century and Bentley has never thought of making a SUV until recently. Well, in spite of never creating a SUV vehicle, we think Bentley is able to do so – since the lorries Bentley created are the world’s fastest. So, there should be no problem, right? The traditional Bentley lovers certainly don’t think so. Perhaps, they want Bentley to produce lorries exclusively. Whatever they say however, the sales of this new Bentley Bentayga is going great with around 4000 preorders.
The Bentayga SUV is perhaps going to be the most powerful, fastest and expensive SUV on earth. The SUV is also the first Bentley that runs by a diesel engine along with the hybrid drivetrain. Well, as the saying goes – there’s always a first time for everything.
2017 Bentley Bentayga Interior
The 2017 Bentley Bentayga is pretty similar with the Continental GT’s. Many features have been updated so it’s compatible with the SUV Bentlay. Those can we see from the wider center console and raised armrests in the door panels. Though, some things remain like the Continental GT’s such as the dashboard, the steering wheel and the center stack.
The cabin is pretty spacious and is made of the wood, handcrafted leather, and metal trim. The interior equipment includes a large dial located in the center console that functions to allow the driver to control the Bentley SUV’s features, drive modes, and also, the traction management.
2017 Bentley Bentayga Exterior
Well, the previews of the Bentley SUV concept have been featured at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, but the exterior is nothing like the one being previewed. We can say that Bentley is playing safe by applying the design of continental GT with few modifications here and there so, it suits the 2017 Bentley Bentayga even more. The front end of this version of Bentley features the traditional, well-known matrix engine grille with another signature four round headlamps. Another similarity with the Continental GT that can be found on the Bentley SUV is the bumper that has the same large side intakes along with the slimmer grille but still able to cover the entire width of the apron. Of course, aside from the similarities, there are several distinguishing traits such as the larger grille, taller engine hood and smaller set of outer headlamps. 2017 Bentley Bentayga is certainly going to be a different approach.
