Until recently, spending exotic car money on an SUV was almost unheard of. Bentley’s luxurious Bentayga however, might turn out to be worth every penny.
While it’s not perfect, the general consensus is that Bentley did a magnificent job, both technically as well as when it comes to quality, in its first-ever SUV.
People will still debate whether it looks good or not , but once you set foot inside and start driving it, its price tag might just start making sense – or at least that’s what Carwow’s review says.
On the downside, some of the switches inside aren’t as well-built as you’d expect and the infotainment screen won’t blow you away with its resolution, as there are better options out there. However, once you move past those issues, you might just find the Bentayga “glorious”, as this reviewer put it.
While the twin-turbo 6.0-liter W12 engine is, obviously, the one to go for, the diesel does a great job as well. In any case, regardless the engine option, the Bentayga feels sharp and surprisingly planted while cornering, not to mention quiet and smooth.
Best of both worlds then? No wonder it comes at such a price; but we’ll see what Rolls-Royce, Aston Martin and the rest will have to say about that.
