The 2017 Bentley Bentayga is arguably the fastest SUV in the world right now and the first of its kind to be manufactured by Bentley. This fresh model is a revamp of its 2016 predecessor, parading new tweaks worth the price it demands. Below is a sneak-peek of what to expect from the 2017 Bentayga SUV.
2017 Bentley Bentayga – Body Appearance and Interior Design:
On the outside, the 2017 Bentley Bentayga is a blend of elegance and bold features. The signature grille chrome mesh on the front with the trademark Bentley logo atop never lacks. The exterior adopts an ostentatious uni-color also echoed by the door knobs and side mirrors. Rumor has it there are fresh additions to the color palette as well as custom paint jobs. Another tweak worth noting is the chic chrome touch on the side moldings, side windows, and windshield trim.
A 360-degree view of the 2017 Bentley Bentayga interior reeks of sophistication and luxury. The seats, parts of the dashboard and the sides are all premium leather dipped in two complementary colors that evoke an artistic classy flare. Moreover, the buyer also gets to decide what unique color they want on their 2017 Bentayga SUV. The veneer gets to keep the burr walnut and dark eucalyptus hues in all Bentayga models.
The dashboard features an 8-inch touch responsive display that controls most of the basic car functions and entertainment. Car reviewers criticize Bentley’s decision of a side display (the trend being an above-the-dashboard display) but a lot of the functions on the dashboard can be controlled from the steering wheel as well. The entertainment system is worth mentioning since its part of the reason why the 2017 Bentley Bentayga is a strict five-seater. The rear seats each have private screen displays as well as features to control entertainment from the back. A 5-person seating arrangement gives room for more trunk capacity which is a plus for long distance travels.
2017 Bentley Bentayga – Powertrain Options:
Under the hood, the Bentley 2017 Bentayga unveils a twin-turbo 6.0 liter charged W-12 engine revving a maximum of 600 hp. Test drivers also appreciated the 8-speed automatic transmission that puts all four wheels to action when on the road. On the road, the 2017 Bentley Bentayga achieves an mpg of 18 giving it a fighting chance against its luxury SUV rivals scheduled for release the same year.
The cruise control is set on adaptive mode and syncs perfectly with the electronic and roll stability controls. Other thoughtful additions include surround surveillance camera, front and back collision sensors, parking sensors. There is also a specific low tire warning, child lock, ABS brake setup and traction controls.
2017 Bentley Bentayga – Release Date and MSRP:
The Bentley Bentayga will be with us sooner than we expected as the pre-orders are scheduled for late 2016. The model will have a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $231,000. Nonetheless, this 2017 Bentayga model is Bentley’s first, and fastest, plutocrat Sports SUV that revs speeds of 187 mph whilst maintaining an ostentatious full body design.
