Bentley Bentayga 2016

Bentley vehicles have always been some of the most in demand vehicles on the planet, and a true symbol of real wealth, luxury, and (somewhat argue) opulence.

But regardless of how some people feel about the fact that there are automobiles on the market today that cost more brand-new than some houses, you’d have a difficult time finding anyone that would love to have a Bentley parked in their garage!

What’s interesting is that this legendary automaker didn’t jump headfirst into the SUV market right away – or really at all, for that matter. But that’s all changing now with the introduction of the brand-new 2016 Bentley Bentayga.

Initial Impressions

When the first SUV from Bentley was announced, fans of this legendary automaker were more than a little bit concerned that it was going to lose its classic lines, it’s iconic style, and the design features that have become so well recognized all over the world.

It turns out that they didn’t have anything to worry about after all.

The new Bentley Bentayga looks a lot like a grown-up version of the Bentley sedans that this company has been making for the last 15 years or so, giving it the same kind of style and elegance that these vehicles have always enjoyed. On top of that, the luxury appointments throughout our top-notch and exactly what you would expect from Bentley, so there’s nothing to worry about in that department.

Standout Features

The single feature that is really going to turn heads when people climb behind the wheel of the new Bentley SUV has to be the inclusion of the twin turbo 12 cylinder engine responsible for producing 600 hp.

Yes, you read that correctly – this Bentley is going to have 600 horses running under the command is going to be able to reach top speeds upwards of 187 miles an hour or more. This will make it the fastest production SUV in history, and easily the fastest SUV on the road for quite a while.

You aren’t going to have to sacrifice power or control, though, as you would be able to enjoy an eight speed automatic that interfaces directly with the all wheel drive mechanism. Though the SUV will reach 60 miles an hour in four seconds flat, it is still going to be somewhat reasonable on gas, though it’s definitely not going to match a Honda Civic anytime soon.
