New Bentley Bentayga spy shots have emerged as the luxurious British offroader continues testing around the world prior to its world debut later this year.
The following spy shots don’t reveal a great deal about the Bentayga’s overall design but thanks to a number of teases, we do have a fair idea of how it will look. The front end will be characterised by traditional quad Bentley headlights alongside a prominent front grille. Additionally, flowing lines will be present across the entirety of the Bentley Bentayga with the rear-end pinned to incorporate a prominent tailgate-mounted spoiler as well as a dual exhaust system.
Inside, it is claimed that the Bentley Bentayga SUV will utilise prominent air vents protruding from the top of the dashboard alongside a host of elements finished in leather alongside wooden trim and metallic accents.
Both V8 and W12 variants of the Bentley Bentayga will be offered with a plug-in hybrid version of the V8 to be made available a year after the car launches. There is also a possibility that a diesel driven derivative could be offered but a final decision on that won’t come before the end of this year. If a diesel is given the go ahead, the Bentley Bentayga will make use of Audi’s 4.2-litre V8 TDI also set to be used by the next-generation Porsche Cayenne.
Discussing the name, chairman and chief executive of Bentley Motors, Wolfgang Durheimer, said, “Bentayga is a name that reflects what we know our SUV will do better than any other car in the world – combine the best automotive luxury with outstanding performance to take the Bentley experience to new environments.”
