Bentley Bentayga, whose makers claim it to be “the fastest, most powerful, most luxurious and most exclusive SUV in the world”, is launching in India tomorrow. This world-class SUV represents the pinnacle of luxury in an offroader. Remaining true to the Bentley DNA, this car, along with being luxurious and premium, packs a powerful 600bhp punch. Expect the price to be somewhere around INR 3.8 crores for the base variant and up to INR 5 crores for the top variant.
The first, top-of-the-line Bentayga was reserved for the Queen of England. It features a signature Bentley grille with double-barrel headlamps on either side. The Bentayga has been given an option of 20 or 22-inch alloy wheels to ride on, and a panoramic glass roof on top. Between the two lie plush leather seats with contrast stitching and handcrafted wood on the dashboard and panels.
For passenger comfort, the SUV has 22- and 18-way adjustable front and rear seats with heating, ventilation and massage system. Further, for entertainment, the car has an 8-inch touchscreen system that supports thirty languages and has 60 GB storage. If you are a rear-seat occupant, you get a 10.2-inch Android tablet with 4G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
The Bentayga reaches a top speed of 301kmph, with a standstill-to-100kmph time of just 4.1 seconds. This is faster than the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S which only manages a top speed of 283.24kmph. These performance figures are courtesy the 6.0-litre twin-turbo W12 engine which produces 600bhp and a generous amount of torque (900Nm).
This SUV will cater to those with really deep pockets and will remain largely exclusive in the country.
