Premium SUVs from mass luxury manufacturers like Mercedes-Benz and BMW may offer plenty of comfort and convenience, but none serves up the same level of luxury as the Bentley Bentayga. Just the perfect carriage to roll up the country club driveway in for a round of golf, or some laid-back afternoon tea.
Many would be forgiven to think that the Bentley Bentayga is the brand’s first SUV. However, Bentley has offered an SUV in the mid-nineties before in the Bentley Dominator, though that was a special commission by the Sultan of Brunei, and only six were ever built.
The first mass-produced SUV from Bentley, the Bentayga offers all the modern luxuries and digital connectivity the well-heeled and tech-savvy clientele expects but packages it in the brand’s traditional old-world craftsmanship and charm.
We think the Bentley Bentayga V8 Diesel could very well be the sweet spot in the range. It’s nearly as fast as its W12 sibling, yet far more economical and just as effortless when cruising. And its diesel engine is the most refined we have experienced, taking nothing away from the premium luxury SUV experience.
