“The new Bentayga has been re-imagined to offer the ultimate in power, luxury and usability,” said Bentley Motors Asia-Pacific Head of Marketing Calista Tambajong. “As these unprecedented times have given rise to changing media consumption habits, we are inspiring our customers and Bentley enthusiasts to embark on a virtual adventure. Each individual may be drawn to different aspects of the new Bentayga. Through the interactive virtual experience, we are imparting freedom to our audience to choose the way they explore the new Bentayga.”
Developed and constructed in Crewe, England, the Bentayga, notably, is the first car launched under Bentley’s Beyond100 business plan. Some 20,000 Bentaygas have already been made–exceeding its competitors.
The refreshed SUV now has “strikingly dynamic look,” derived from the brand’s new design language seen on the third-generation Continental GT and all-new Flying Spur. The Bentayga is said to be a combination of a performance grand tourer, a luxury limousine, a spacious family car and an off-road vehicle.
Inside, the Bentayga gets a new center fascia and steering wheel, new door trims, and all-new seats. Rear passengers of the five-seater option get ventilation as well. Legroom has been increased by up to 100mm, depending on variant.
A 10.9-inch super high-resolution display screen with configurable dynamic graphics highlights a new infotainment system, integrated in the handcrafted “wing” dashboard design.
Under the hood is the same 4.0-liter, 32-valve, dual twin-scroll turbocharged, V8 gasoline engine boasting both power and fuel economy. It is mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox, the V8 develops more than 542 horsepower and 770Nm of torque. The Bentayga can reach 0-100 kilometers per hour (kph) from standstill in 4.5 seconds, and has a top rate of 290kph.
Bentley reported that the new Bentayga V8 can cover 639km, with CO2 emissions of 302 g/km. “This refined efficiency (7.52 kilometers per liter combined) is partly due to the ability of the engine to deactivate four of its eight cylinders in suitable conditions, without compromising the drive.”
Interested parties can schedule an exclusive viewing of the new Bentayga at the Bentley Manila showroom in Bonifacio Global City. To book an appointment, call (0917) 140-2266 or (0917) 837-0527.
