The Bentley Bentayga might just be the fastest SUV on the planet with a top speed of 190 miles per hour. And the Bentayga isn’t just top speed fast either. The roomy SUV can hit 100 kilometers per hour in just 3.9 seconds. These numbers push the SUV towards “hyper car” status, and may require us to come up with a new moniker. Hyper-SUV perhaps?
So how does the Bentley Bentayga achieve such remarkable speeds? You can thank the 6.0 liter W12 engine for that exceptional performance. The W12 under the hood cranks out 635 horse power and 900 Nm of torque.
Keep in mind, however, that Bentley’s have always been more well known for their opulent luxury rather than performance. Of course, Bentley’s pack plenty of performance, but there might not be a more luxurious car brand in the world.
Every millimeter of the interior of the Bentayga feels refined and luxurious. Much of the car is covered in leather. There’s a colored heads up display, and you’ll get a choice of luxurious woods, such as dark fiddleback eucalyptus. And you’ll have quite a lot of room inside as well, owing to the cavernous space offered by this SUV.
As far as ride goes, you can expect a lot of peace and quiet. This well-insulated SUV will protect you from exterior noises, bumps on the road, and other disturbances that make for a poor driving experience.
SUVs and crossovers are all the rage right now. It should come as no surprise that companies like Bentley and Lamborghini are launching SUVs even if just fifteen years ago the idea would have seemed a bit absurd. But the Bentayga might just be the best hyper SUV on the road.
