Bentley Bentayga V8

Bentley Bentayga V8

REVIEW

For the longest time, Range Rover had the luxury SUV market all to itself. They sat in the £100,000 bracket with a car that was fast, luxurious and stylish and had no real rivals (the new Merc G-Wagen maybe now) but deep in the bowels of a Crewe factory an idea was brewing. So now we have the Bentley Bentayga – an odd name, but what a vehicle. It may weigh in at 2.5 tonnes, but how does it manage 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds? That’ll be the incredible twin turbo 4.0 V8 petrol engine producing 542bhp and 770Nm of torque – enough to stop the world turning when you accelerate. So there is supreme luxury in this V8 Bentayga - that's a given as it's Bentley - but you also get epic performance, a surprisingly fruity soundtrack and a new 180mph top speed. In an SUV! The biggest surprise is that it'll actually hit 25mpg with a light right foot, so not as good as the old V8 diesel, but you get more performance and a far better noise. We do love a petrol V8!
