Bentley adds sporty Bentayga S to its luxury go-anywhere SUV family

Bentley Bentayga S SUV speeding along a beach

Bentley has taken the covers off the Bentayga S, the latest version of its luxury SUV. This fourth model joins the efficient plug-in Hybrid, the 4.0-litre turbocharged V8, and the powerful 6.0-litre, 12-cylinder Speed.

Designed and engineered in the UK, and manufactured in Crewe, this is the first S version since the launch of Bentayga in 2015, and promises an even more engaging drive, with Bentley Dynamic Ride active anti-roll control fitted as standard and an enhanced Sports chassis mode. 

Bentley’s luxury SUV is now available in four, five or seven seat configurations.

Muscular design cues reflect the sporting driving experience. Unique 22-inch wheels feature scythe-like spokes, and are available in three finishes (silver painted, full gloss black or black and bright polished); ‘S’ badges are positioned on the lower edge of the front doors.

Other style differences include the distinctive addition of black details, and a newly designed, free-flowing sports exhaust. There’s also a larger rear spoiler, gloss black side sills and lower bumpers, front and rear, black door mirrors, with dark tint lenses to head and tail lamps.

Bentayga S styling upgrades include new seats with a fluted design and unique stitching, a new colour split and Alcantara to reflect the striking exterior; colour accents on the instrument panel, centre console, door pads and seat bolsters as well as Alcantara to seat cushion and back inserts, steering wheel and gear lever.

The Bentayga S shares a fully digital driver information panel with the Bentayga Speed, with pronounced dial graphics that take influence from high-end chronographs. The display can be customised and features real-time lighting effects with animations.

There’s the option of a Classic or Expanded view. In Classic, the display shows the traditional two-dial design of speedometer and tachometer. In Expanded, the right dial is replaced with an area for maps and media information.

Beneath the hood, the Bentayga S features a 4.0-litre, twin-scroll turbocharged V8 petrol engine, capable of 542 bhp (550 PS) and 568 lb.ft. (770 Nm) of torque, with a 0-60 mph (0–100 km/h) time of 4.4 (4.5) seconds and a top speed of 180 mph (290 km/h). 

Off-road abilities remain undimmed, with the optional All-Terrain Specification bringing four dedicated off-road modes (Snow and Wet Grass, Dirt and Gravel, Mud and Trail, and Sand) along with a 500 mm wading depth.

To date, more than 25,000 customers have taken delivery of a Bentayga. For more, visit Bentley Motors online.
