2018 Bentley Bentayga SUV Review
Though a few years back people might not have been expecting a diesel-powered Bentley SUV to be ever made, the company has gone on to manufacture it. The 2018 Bentley Bentayga is a testament to impressive craftsmanship, refinement, and one of the best diesel powertrains available in the market. Let’s see what it has to offer in a bit more detail.
The exterior of the 2018 Bentley Bentayga is anything but subtle. While this vehicle is quite large, the appearance ends up feeling larger due to the size of the chrome grille. This car announces its presence on the road from every angle. From the 22-inch wheels to the glaring LED lights, this vehicle is all about making a statement. There are also two twin-quad tailpipes at this vehicle’s rear. You can also see the new ‘V8 DIESEL’ badge on the lower edge of this car’s front doors.
You’ll definitely notice the comfortable interior of the 2018 Bentley Bentayga. It features tan leather and light woodwork. The overall interior has a very classy British look. The fluted seat design is all about exuding elegance. This vehicle’s upper cabin has been trimmed in Eliade which is a tactile, technical fabric. It goes well with the entire leather-trimmed cabin.
All of the seats are comfortable and the front seats are adequately spaced for a better driving experience. You won’t feel boxed in while sitting in the cabin. Two soft Mulliner cushions are also available to enhance comfort levels. The infotainment system, on the other hand, could’ve been better.
The most striking feature of the 2018 Bentley Bentayga is the new triple-charging capability. The third unit aids in eliminating turbo lag. Liquid Amber, a new veneer choice, is available if you want to go for the straight wood grain look. The classic ‘B’ design foot pedals and the Bentley treadplates are standard.
You can select from five standard hide colors along with a total of seven standard paint colors to personalize this vehicle. There are also 12 duo-tone combinations. The rest of the features include automatic braking, parking, emergency lights, airbags, rear-view, and motion detection. It’s all about creating the perfect Bentley for you to drive.
