Bentley has revealed the second-generation Bentayga, and its luxury SUV is getting even more striking. Picking up the style baton from where the Continental GT and Flying Spur left off, the 2021 Bentayga has a larger, more upright grille, flanked by new LED matrix headlamps. As you’d expect, the details are where Bentley excels, such as heated wet-arm windshield wipers that pack 22 washer jets into each arm.
Inside, the center console has been reworked to accommodate a new 10.9-inch touchscreen. There’s also a digital driver instrumentation display, while the steering wheel has also been updated. Rear legroom has improved, and there are four, five, or seven seat configurations available.
As for engines, the first new SUV will use Bentley’s V8. That’s a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged gas engine with 542 horsepower and 568 lb-ft of torque. It’s paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, all-wheel drive, and self-leveling air suspension as standard. Down the line there’ll be Bentayga Speed models with even more performance, though this V8’s 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds is hardly slow.
