As this is the season for emergence and newest crazes, Bentley has drawn back the veil for their 2017 Bentayga. The Bentley model has been the center of buzz ever since its proclamation as the world’s fastest SUV as it exceeded Porsche Cayenne Turbo S by 2-3km in its top speed.
One of the fine points Bentayga has is the pop-out headlamp washers. Mechanically, it is equipped with Drive Dynamics Mode that can trigger 8 various drive modes together with the optional Responsive Off-Road Setting. With the magic 8, you can choose whatever terrain you want to enjoy… and enjoy you will! For Bentayga, Bentley has laid diesel and hybrid engines as choices though a V8 is still highly anticipated.
The aesthetics of the interior include the uber-posh 15 furnished pieces of wood trim. Customers can even choose between the 15 shades of exotic tanned bull hide for the 22-way adjustable front chairs equipped with 6-mode massage functionality. For the base, Bentayga will have 4-5 seaters though eventually, a 7-seater option will also be given.
Center console holds USB ports, cup holders and storage. Standard unit offers the 8-inch touchscreen display and navigation, a 60GB hard drive for your music, data and video storage, 4G LTE connectivity, Bluetooth, in-car wireless hotspot and a detachable 10.2-inch tablet for the back passengers.
With the price tag starting at $200,000, high-end consumers have something they could spend their dollars. Unless you have the passion and firm belief over Bentley Bentayga, the price can really turn you off. And then again, every buck may be worth it.
