Bentley Bentayga: V8 instead of W12

luxury comes in the years. Well four years after its market launch in the spring of 2016 Bentley revised his huge SUV, the 5,14-Meter-long Bentayga. Mockers see him as just a souped-up Audi A7 or Porsche Cayenne, but the success does not detract. More than 20,000 of the thick vessels are to be sold in 2016 in the world, which is much more than you had expected. And of course, Bentley has a more distinct appearance, especially now, after he was intensively revised. In the interior you actually recognize just in the Infotainment System, the relationship to other models from the VW group.

F. A. Z.

Now, autumn, is designed in the Interior still elegant. There are new seats, more space and the possibility to provide also the rear seat with a seat ventilation. The Infotainment System is completely new, Apple Car Play and Android Auto, each of the Bentayga has now an own Sim-card for access to the network. Will be shown everything on a new, and 10.9-inch Monitor in the center console. Two types of Audio System are available. As it behoves 2020, even in a Bentley, the instruments virtually, but nice classic.

Changes to the way in the Exterior, in the Front the headlights are now slightly oval, the new, powerful grille stands very upright. Extensive the rear has been redesigned. It added airy and a lot less plump, therefore, comes now, the rear lights are now smaller and elliptic, such as the Bentley GT, the number plate is moved down into the bumper. Behind the electric upward-swinging door computer waiting for table 484 litres of Luggage space volume on the next big trip. Unless one orders a third row of seats, which is very good. It costs 3382 euros. There is also a four-seat variant, but the German customers, leave it to 90 percent in the back seat, finally, the Bentayga is the car a "family", they told us at Bentley Frankfurt in Bad Homburg, as we have borrowed the V8 for 48 hours.

The eight-cylinder is one of the three engine options offered. The 4.0-Liter engine, originally from Porsche, provides a whopping 550 HP and a maximum torque of 770 Newton meters. In the top 290 km/h in here. For a 2.5-ton vehicle with a gross vehicle weight of 3250 kg which is a considerable value. Bentley speaks of a economical engine and the cylinder shut-off - with low power requirement, only four pots work. Nevertheless, the standard fuel consumption is 13.3 litres. After two days and 500 miles, we filled 70 litres in the 85-litre fuel Tank. Ergo, we came up with a 14.0 Liter on average. Fueled Super-Plus petrol should be.

The expectations that are placed on a a minimum of 182,000 euros expensive car, the big SUV is quite. Quietly it glides on, are driven by both axes, the eight-speed automatic shifts smoothly and hardly noticeable. The 2.5 tonnes of a complex chassis with air suspension and the "Bentley Dynamic Ride System" with active handling stability control and active roll stabilization (Option). The paddle shifters on the steering Wheel, we consider as superfluous. But of course, the Bentayga has a sporty side. It is amazing how light-footed he is on narrow, winding country roads, to move.
