Bentley’s first SUV, the Bentayga, made waves at the 2015 Frankfurt show in production form. Here’s all you need to know.
You either love them or hate them, but Bentley has entered the SUV market with the luxurious Bentayga. First revealed at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, it’ll arrive in 2016 priced from £160,000.
The British firm’s first SUV didn’t get off to the greatest start. The more premium Range Rover rival was shown off by the EXP 9 F concept at the Geneva Motor Show back in 2012, and that showed there was a huge interest in a car of the type. Under one condition – it didn’t look like this ungainly concept.
When the Bentayga name first came out it wasn’t received with universal praise either, although Bentley’s sales and marketing director, Kevin Rose, insists, “Live with it like we have and it fits the car really well.”
