2016 Bentley Betayga

2016 Bentley Betayga

One of the most expected, and most desirable, SUVs of all time has arrived.  The Bentley Betayga has been an ambitious project to begin with, but now that it’s been officially introduced, it’s easily one of the greatest looking vehicles ever. Bentley is perceived as a true luxury brand that doesn’t do compromise, but we all have to agree that the Bentayga just looks just as anyone would expect a Bentley SUV to look like. Is that good or bad?

Instantly recognizable as a Bentley, the SUV shows off an interesting mix of Mulsanne and Continental family elements.The Bentayga comes with double, asymmetrical rounded headlights, a large grille and wide air intakes, as well as a front skidplate. The 2016 Bentley Bentayga rides on 20″ to 22″ alloys while boasting aluminum roof rails, ot show it means business.

It’s all about style, people, and the new Bentayga is in a class of its own. Inside the cabin, Bentley went for a light-tone interior, enhanced by the standard panoramic glass roof split into two areas. Technology is definitely part of the environment, as an eight-inch display allows control of the infotainment system, while 10.2 inch Bentley Entertainment Tablets and a 1950 watt Naim for Bentley Premium Audio system will try to keep you entertained.

If driving is not your favorite thing, you should know that Bentley have announced a four-seater version, with luxurious accommodation for those in the two back seats, including massage functions around. Those of you who will be driving it should know that the new 2016 Bentley Bentayga is powered by the well-known 6.0-liter V12 engine, good for around 608 hp and 663 lb-ft (900 Nm.

An eight-speed automatic transmission working alongside a four-wheel drive system will make sure all that power is put to good use. Translated, this means 0 to 60 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4 seconds and a top speed of 187 mph (300 km/h). Bentley also released some fuel efficiency figures, but that’s really silly; purchasing this SUV has nothing to do with protecting the environment or saving up cash. This is luxury at its best!.
