BENTLEY has announced details of the new Bentayga S, bringing extra sporting agility to its luxury SUV, with striking design cues and unique detailing. It is the first time such a variant has been offered.
Building on Bentley’s established ‘S’ brand, the new enhanced sports Bentayga provides an even more engaging drive, with Bentley Dynamic Ride active anti-roll control fitted as standard, and an enhanced Sports chassis mode.
A 15 per cent increase in damping stiffens the chassis and provides a platform for a more dynamic SPORT mode ESC tune. The Bentayga S also features a revised visual presence through the distinctive addition of black details.
A more sporting soundtrack comes courtesy of a newly designed, free-flowing sports exhaust, with a range of distinctive exterior features added to the package, including unique 22-inch wheels with three finishes.
Innovative ‘S’ badges positioned on the lower edge of the front doors, and Blackline Specification are standard. The profile has increased presence due to the larger rear spoiler, gloss black side sills and lower bumpers, front and rear.
Dark tint lenses to the head lamps and tail lamps, black door mirrors and black split oval tailpipes complete the striking exterior.
Inside a luxuriously refined cabin, Bentley’s S style can be found using new seats, unique stitching, a new colour split and Alcantara to reflect the striking exterior and increased dynamic ability.
Colour accents on the instrument panel, centre console, door pads and seat bolsters as well as Alcantara to seat cushion and back inserts, steering wheel and gear lever, give the Bentayga S a bold and contemporary style.
‘S’ badges can be found on the passenger fascia as well as new graphics in the driver’s instrument panel and illuminated treadplates, denoting the model.
Bentley’s sector-defining and market-leading luxury SUV is available in four, five or seven seat configurations. The fourth model in the Bentayga range joins the efficient plug-in Hybrid, the 4.0-litre turbocharged V8, and the powerful 6.0-litre, 12-cylinder Speed.
The Bentayga S features Bentley’s renowned 4.0-litre, twin-scroll turbocharged V8 petrol engine, combining immense power with impressive fuel economy. The latest-generation engine develops 404kW and 770 Nm. It can sprint from 0–100km/h in 4.5 seconds.
Bentley’s dynamic ride system can react within 0.3s with up to 1,300Nm of torque to counteract lateral rolling forces when cornering, ensuring maximum tyre contact to deliver class-leading cabin stability, ride comfort and exceptional handling.
Similar to the recently launched Continental GT Speed, where the boundaries of comfort versus engaging performance have been extended through chassis mode selection, the Bentayga S now offers increased capability through an enhanced SPORT mode.
The Bentayga’s comprehensive off-road abilities remain, with the optional All-Terrain specification bringing four dedicated off-road modes (Snow and Wet Grass, Dirt and Gravel, Mud and Trail, and Sand) along with a 500mm wading depth.
Further information will be release by Bentley closer to launch, including local availability and pricing.
