Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

The 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 engine makes 600 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque, mated to a smooth 8-speed automatic, with all-wheel drive. The 5379-pound SUV handles its lightning-quick acceleration of zero to sixty in four seconds astonishingly well. The standard air suspension keeps the tank flat in the corners. In fact, the chassis engineers had to tone the system down because it seemed to defy the laws of physics; in testing, they said it felt downright unnatural for such a big machine to corner like a go-kart.

The active anti-rollbar system responds in milliseconds, and the all-wheel-drive system adapts with ease to snow, ice, or wet grass at the fox hunt. You feel the car’s weight more under hard acceleration and braking than in the corners. Despite its giant 6.0 liters, the engine is compact, and that helps the cornering.

As for the acceleration, the Bentayga’s brilliant response and quickness come from its aggressive throttle mapping; engineers there didn’t compromise for little-old-lady drivers. If you floor it, you’ll get all 664 pound-feet of torque, every time. It will make the driver’s face light up and the passenger’s neck snap.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

The Bentayga is elegant and graceful, and looks at home in the family. Its long hood travels to the big windscreen up to a sweeping roofline that drops back down to a long deck and dramatic rear fenders draping the rear tires. The bulging and handsome hips remind us of the Bentley Continental.

The aluminum sides are stamped by a sophisticated process; the result is one of the biggest single pieces of aluminum in carmaking.

Superformed front fenders turn into a uniform front fascia. The honeycomb grille and big round headlamps are reserved and beautifully detailed. The cameras and sensors that guide the car are hidden.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

The cockpit, awash in opulence, feels appropriate for a trip to to Buckingham Palace. It’s driver-oriented, and stamped with Bentley touches such as the stout shift lever and piano-stop vent controls. The surfaces are plentifully detailed, in other words busy. The different woods, black trim and stitched leather all blend without restraint.

The front and rear seats (at least for two people) are good. The front legroom is the same as in the Audi Q7, while the rear seats provide two more inches of legroom. But that’s when the front seats are slid forward. Those 22-way adjustable seats can quickly erase rear legroom. Behind the rear seat there is 15.2 cubic feet of cargo space, with a space in the rear seatback for long things like skis.

A third row of seats is available for 2018. It’s similar to the third row in the Q7, which is for kids only.

Options include a quilted tailgate bench.

Brilliant engine, seamless 8-speed automatic, and absolutely astonishing cornering. It’s the ultimate SUV. But compare to the Range Rover, Cayenne, and Q7 before buying.
