Bentley Bentayga is a 5 door cross over SUV [Sports Utility Vehicle] marketed by Bentley. The production of the SUV started in December 2015 ahead of the 2016 model year. The car is assembled in Crewe, United Kingdom. In today’s quick review, I will be focusing on the history, specifications, and price of Bentley Bentayga in Nigeria.
In September 2015, the Bentley Bentayga made its first appearance at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The SUV is a full-time all-wheel drive and the engine bay was filled with a Volkwagen group’s bi-turbo W12 engine and MLB Platform. There was a claim by the company that the Bentayga is the only SUV with the highest top speed 187 mph as well as the second most expensive SUV in production.
The name Bentayga comes from Rogue Bentayga. This is an emblematic highland rock situated in Tejeda, Gran Canaria, the subtropical Canary Island. The name was officially unveiled by Bentley in January.
The Bentley EXP 9 F concept
The Bentley Bentayga concept codenamed Bentley EXP 9 F debuted at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. The concept vehicle was powered by a 6.0 L W12 engine that produces 600 hp. For the SUV to achieve more traditional SUV proportions and less retro surfacing, the car’s initial design of EXP 9 F was redesigned.

The Bentayga received a major facelift in 2020 ahead of the 2021 model year. The optional W12 version of the updated Bentley Bentayga has been discontinued. The changes include new 3D elliptical tail lights with animated LEDs, this was similar to those on the Continental GT, and the number plate was repositioned. The spoiler was extended, new side vents and a new 22 inches wheel design, plus two new paint job.
The changes also included the replacement of the aging infotainment with a new system show on a high-resolution 10.9-inch touchscreen and this gets a standard wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Some features were updated to meet the new standards, they include USB-C ports, air ionizers, wireless smartphone charging, and an embedded SIM card for data services. This is awesome, this means that you will have a SIM card dedicated to data services on your car.
The last but not the least is the upgrade in the audio system. The new standard audio system includes a 790W, 12 speaker stereo, with an optional Naim Bentley system taking that to 1780W and 20n speakers. With these speakers, the car can serve as a home theatre.
Transmission and powertrains
The new twin-turbo W12 engine was introduced in the 2016 Bentley Bentayga. The earlier models of the Bentayga came with an older W12 engine option. The old engine was capable of bypassing 6 cylinders if needed. The engine can accelerate from 0 – 60 mph in just 4.0 seconds and it has a top speed of 301 km-h.
The Bentayga uses a 48-volt electrical system to control its electrically controlled active anti-roll bar [EWAS], which aids the heavy SUV to reduce body roll.
There was a massive breakthrough when the V8 engine was introduced in 2018. The V8 is lower than its W12 variant. The V8 can accelerate from 0 – 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and it has a top speed of 180 mph.
The Bentayga comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The Hybrid version
The company revealed the Hybrid version at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show and it went on sale in the UK, Europe, and North America in October 2019. The Hybrid version is a combination of a 3.0L V6 turbo petrol engine and an electric motor. The output of the hybrid version is pegged at 443 hp and a corresponding torque of 700 N.m.
