The British luxury carmaker Bentley Motors has unveiled the facelifted Bentayga, which will be in the Indian market in 2021.
The first-ever Bentayga was launched in India in 2016 and the luxury SUV was an instant hit. The new avatar of this car will adhere to BS6 emission rules and offers an array of new changes.
“From its moment of launch nearly five years ago, the Bentayga has been the very definition of the luxury SUV. Like the Continental GT, the Bentayga created an entirely new part of the market. We’ve listened to our customers and made improvements to the areas most important to them, and the new Bentayga is a thoroughly modern and beautiful extension of the original car’s abilities and achievements,” said Adrian Hallmark, Chairman and Chief Executive, Bentley Motors, in a press statement.
As per the carmaker, more than 20,000 Bentaygas have been handcrafted since the SUV’s launch, which is more than any of its competitors.
The new dynamic look draws inspiration from the marque’s new design language, introduced by the third-generation Continental GT and all-new Flying Spur.
Every panel at the front of the car has been redesigned to give it a cleaner and contemporary look. The assertive matrix grille is positioned 30mm higher than its predecessor.
The intelligent LED matrix headlamp technology includes the signature Bentley design, which is inspired by cut crystal glassware. The new and improved front bumper looks imposing.
Heated, wet-arm windscreen wipers have been introduced for the first time, which is equipped with 22 washer jets in each arm.
The rear part of the car has undergone a complete makeover. The SUV now sports a full-width tailgate with new encapsulated lamps and the licence plate has been moved down into the bumper for a better appearance.
The width of the rear has been increased by 20 mm. This repositions the wheels in their arches to improve the car’s stance.
The upgraded SUV comes with a new centre fascia, steering wheel and new door trims. The all-new seats are now available with ventilation in the rear of the five-seat cabin option. The rear seats are broader and there’s more legroom, as it has been increased by up to 100 mm.
The next-generation infotainment system is integrated into the handcrafted Bentley ‘wing’ dashboard design.
It has a 10.9-inch display screen with edge-to-edge high resolution and dynamic graphics. This can be configured as per the driver’s preferences.
The rear seat occupants can enjoy a new, larger touchscreen remote control tablet.
The interior of the car can be enhanced with the application of dark tint diamond brushed aluminium trim for the first time in a Bentley, as well as two straight-grained veneers new to Bentayga: Koa and Crown Cut Walnut.
Equipped with 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged petrol engine, the car will have a plug-in Hybrid option, too. The car has an impressive 542 bhp(550 PS) and 568 lb.ft (770 Nm) of torque.
