Bentley is bringing a new focus on wellness to its model range with the launch of the Bentayga Extended Wheelbase – a new grand touring SUV that builds on the strengths of the standard model to become a new luxury flagship.
So much more than just a stretch, the Bentayga Extended Wheelbase is the result of a nine-figure investment by Bentley to create a new model that provides the best rear cabin experience since a Mulsanne.
The success of the Bentayga to date has defined and enabled the growth of the luxury SUV market, and over the last seven years it has proved its credibility through genuine off-road capability, hybrid technology, performance, and bespoke specifications.
The Bentayga Extended Wheelbase once again redefines the zenith and has the potential to be one of the spiritual successors to the retired Mulsanne. The SUV, in its standard form, is the car maker’s number one selling vehicle.
The class-leading luxury SUV extends by 180mm, features integrated world-first seat technology, and increased interior dimensions. An airline seat specification includes world-first auto climate sensing and advanced postural adjustment systems.
Three seating configurations will be offered in the Extended Wheelbase version, including a new 4+1 layout alongside four and five-seat versions. It is expected to have similar driving dynamics to the V8 variant, thanks to rear wheel steering and Dynamic Ride as standard.
As many as 24 billion different trim combinations will be available, including the first application of Bentley Diamond Illumination – delivering cabin lighting through handcrafted leather panels. It’s powered by the car maker’s 4.0-litre 404kW V8.
Additionally, two enhanced specifications of the Bentayga Extended Wheelbase will be available at launch. The Azure offers elegant and timeless design with unique signatures, focusing on maximum comfort and well-being with an effortless drive.
This unique specification includes exclusive 22-inch ten-spoke directional wheels, bright lower bumper grilles, Azure embroidery and badging. Other features include custom quilted seats, mood lighting, a heated steering wheel, and increased driver’s assistance aids.
The First Edition specification builds further, including Bentley Diamond Illumination, metal overlays in the veneer, Naim for Bentley Premium Audio and LED welcome lamps. Unique embroidery, inlays and badging identify this as a highly exclusive and distinct model.
Deliveries commence in Q4 2022. Further details are available from your nearest Bentley dealership. If you’d like to buy one, and need finance, visit CreditOne.
