Bentley to Eventually Create Smaller Car

By the end of the decade, Bentley is set to have five models with confirmation the British marque is looking towards creating a smaller car than its current Continental GT. This new model would obviously join the Continental, Mulsanne, Flying Spur and the upcoming Bentley SUV in the firm’s line-up.

While speaking about this new model at the Geneva Motor Show 2014, Bentley sales and marketing boss Kevin Rose said, “It’s hard to be certain what the market will demand that far into the future. At the moment, our line of thinking is for a smaller car. But smaller doesn’t necessarily mean cheaper.

“The twin pillars of the Bentley brand are performance and luxuriousness. Any car that offers something unique, with both of those bases well covered is on the table. But we would never try to copy a Ferrari or a Porsche.”

Because such a model is so far away from launching, no further details are known about it. However, if it comes to fruition, Bentley will become just the latest in a long line of luxury automakers widening their market and creating more models. One fellow VW Group manufacturer which will also expand in the coming years is Lamborghini when its Urus SUV ultimately hits the market.
