The Bentley Bentayga premium crossover will be launched for the Indian market on April 21. It is first high riding vehicle from the Volkswagen owned British automaker and will come here in limited numbers. The Bentley Bentayga was previewed in 2012 through the EXP 9 F concept car followed by its official reveal just over 3 years later at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.
It follows the standard Bentley design with the large front grille, full LED headlamps, sporty bumpers and famous ‘Winged B’ logo’ that sits in the middle. The Bentayga rides on 21-inch wheels which along with the high ground clearance gives it the SUV stance. At the back, it is surprisingly conventional as the tail lamps are from other Bentley models while there is a chrome strip at the base of the bootlid.
The cabin of the Bentayga gets all the usual bits and bobs like four-zone climate control, touchscreen infotainment system and leather trim all around. There is space four people to travel long distances in a crazy amount of comfort. Given that this is a Bentley, every car will be customised as per the buyers’ wishes.
The mightiness of the Bentayga comes from a twin-turbo 6.0-litre V12 that produces 600bhp and an incredible 900Nm of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels via the ZF eight-speed gearbox and AWD system. We believe that the Bentayga will be priced in the range of Rs 2.5 crore to Rs 3.5 crore and will brought into the country via the CBU route.
