He is therefore, the Bentley Bentayga. The Royal British have now really a SUV. And almost certainly the most luxurious and extravagant that the world has ever seen. For the first time, you can marvel at the over-roader at the IAA in Frankfurt ( September 17 to 27 2015). Everything you need to know the tracks breaking Bentayga, click here.

With overtaking. Much overtaking

Regarding the design of the Bentayga, Bentley has remained very faithful. If you ever get the idea to imagine a Bentley SUV, then one would have imagined it certainly like that. The face and the rear wheel arches shouting " Continental GT " and there are the typical "flying B " on wings and as a signature in the taillights. Subtly it is the illustrious clientele have not wanted and unobtrusive they do not get it. Overtaking is likely to be present in compositions.

Sauschnell, not only for an SUV

Also under the hood it comes to little reluctant. Actual frugal diesel or plug-in hybrid versions examined is (still) in vain. In the not too distant future that is to change, however. The only option for the time being Bentayga a completely newly developed 6.0-liter W12 with two turbochargers rutting. He sums it up outrageous 608 hp and 900 Nm of torque, which bear even at 1,250 rev / min in full. About an eight-speed automatic, the whole madness goes to all four wheels and in plenty of impressive fashion: The Bentley Bentayga pops in 4.1 seconds to 100 km / h, just 301 km / h top. We never thought that we would have to write the time, but that there is now an SUV, which is faster than the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S. The con-sumption give the British the way with 12.8 liters on average. This corresponds to CO2 emissions of 292 grams per kilometer and thus twelve percent less than the old W12. We believe that you should not go too fast in order to achieve this value.

15 cows

The interior of the Bentley Bentayga success spoiled Naturburschen expected unsurprisingly a level of luxury and processing, which is likely to be very difficult to beat. 15 cows ( or better their skins ) into each interior and 14 hours of work per car go just for the woods it. The lush massaging seats, ventilated and dissemble 22x. Rear one has the choice between a conventional rear bench or two individual seats. To the children ( many children ) Bentley thinks likewise. Because soon there will be the Bentayga as seven-seater. The trunk almost 590 liters and has an optional special treat in store. The so-called " event Folding seat", which turns the trunk floor in a sort of Nobel - leather sofa. A large box for any time, befitting champagne reception is to have also.

Luxury Infotainment

Even technologically skin Bentley with the Bentayga pretty on the plaster. Rather the standard eight-inch infotainment touchscreen appear forward. However, less standard are the two removable rear 4G WiFi 10.2-inch tablets and a large 3.5 inch touch-screen remote control to control from the back seat of climate and audio Affairs. There is also an optional Naim 1,950-watt stereo with 18 speakers. In terms of assistance systems provides Bentleys About SUV including a brake assist system, a traffic jam assistant, a cross-traffic Warner, a parking assistant and a 360-degree camera. The sheer dimensions of the Bentayga ( 5.14 meters long, 2.00 meters wide ) should the latter among the most popular features.

Eight driving modes

Oh, off goes the Bentayga course. And perhaps even more professional than many would have expected. With a depth of 500 millimeters Watt, a ground clearance of at least 245 millimeters and a configurable Hill Descent Control should be in there as an unkempt castle driveway more. With the optional " Off-road package " increases the number of driving modes to almost unmanageable eight. The usual modes of Comfort, Sport, Bentley and Custom, to take care of damping, engine response, ride height, roll and traction control, then join nor the four programs Snow & Grass, Dirt & Gravel, Mud & Trail and Sand Dunes.

For the first time with electric roll stabilization

This allows more than 2.4 tons of zwölfzylindriger SUV cabinet Wall appropriately elegant chase through the curve, Bentley has developed a richly complex " Dynamic Ride System ": The Bentayga has air suspension, a new electromechanical steering system and an electronic 48 - Volt - roll stabilization ( worldwide for the first time in a car ) for " best in class values ​​in ride comfort, steering feel and handling ." The new system adjusts the stiffness in all four corners of the car in real time and stiffens or relaxes the chassis depending on how quickly you maneuvered the Bentayga in the bend. At best, the car should be nice flat going into the curve, but doing so charming springs, as you would expect from a Bentley. Although the Bentayga is on the MLB platform of the new Audi Q7, but he's violent 362 kilos heavier. Expect So despite the associated dynamic - effort no prancing sports miracle.
