Details of the updated 2021 Bentley Bentayga have been announced with the SUV given a design tweak and interior refresh.
From the outside, the Bentayga takes its styling cues from the latest Continental and Flying Spur with a new front end that features a larger, more upright matrix grille, new LED matrix headlamps, redesigned front bumper and new heated, wet-arm windscreen wipers.
At the rear, there’s a new full-width tailgate, new encapsulated lamps and the license plate has been moved down into the bumper. There is also a 20mm increase to the rear track width and redesigned 22-inch wheels.
On the inside, the Bentayga gets a new centre fascia, steering wheel, door trims and seats, which are now available with ventilation in the rear of the five-seat cabin option.
Speaking of the rear, there is now up to 100mm more legroom for rear passengers, depending on the configuration.
Buyers can choose from the standard five-seat layout plus an optional four-seat configuration, with the two individual rear seats separated by a centre console, or the three-row, seven-seat option.
The cabin also gets an upgrade to the infotainment system with the ‘Wing’ dashboard design featuring a 10.9-inch display, all-new navigation with satellite maps and online search while rear passengers get a larger touchscreen remote control tablet similar to the one seen in the Flying Spur.
The Bentayga also gains USB-C ports, wireless smartphone charging and wireless Apple CarPlay as standard.
For the first time, the Bentayga can also be optioned with dark tint diamond brushed aluminium trim in addition to the two straight-grained veneers, Koa and Crown Cut Walnut.
The Mulliner Driving Specification also adds a new quilting design, and micro piping detailing is a new option for the seats.
Two new colour choices have been added for 2021 – Viridian (dark metallic green) and Patina (mid-tone off-white).
At launch, the 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 producing 404kW and 770Nm will be carried over. It’s matched with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.
Bentley says the 0-100km/h dash can be completed in 4.5 seconds on the way to a top speed of 290km/h.
A W12-powered Speed version and a plug-in hybrid model will be available at a later date.
Bentley’s Australian arm is yet to announce local availability, specifications and pricing.
