But it is the genuine luxury and go-anywhere ability that really sets the Bentayga apart. The development of the first ever Bentley SUV saw the Bentley team test the Bentayga to the limit, from the dirt and gravel in South Africa to the sand dunes in Dubai, from the muddy fields of Cheshire to the -30c in the frozen North Cape. The most exhaustive development program in Bentley’s history has proven the Bentayga’s ability to perform on any surface and in any condition.

Customer deliveries are expected to commence early 2016.
