2017 Bentley Bentayga
If you thought Range Rovers were the top of the blood line for SUVs, then the Bentley Bentayga just might make your head explode. Yes, we now live a world of $200,000 SUVs.
But make no mistake, for that crazy amount of money, you are getting one truly special sport-ute.
For starters, a 6.0 liter 600 horsepower twin-turbo W12 is your engine. You don’t see that very often…unless your other car is a Bentley, too.
Inside, the Bentayga debuts a new interior layout design for the entire brand, bumping up the technology, looking much more modern, while still keeping that handcrafted feel. Material quality is unmatched, and the ride is whisper quiet.
ZACH MASKELL: “Absolutely fabulous is the only way I can describe the suspension dampening in here. It whisks away any bumps in the road like a low flying bird to a giant’s backhand.”
JOHN DAVIS: Need a little off-road prowess to go with that on-road presence? Our QuickSpin took us on some dicey terrain…and the Bentayga proved very capable. We were more worried about the vehicle’s safety than we were our own.
As stated, Bentley Bentayga prices start steep, at $229,000, and it’s on sale now.
