Bentley Bentayga's conservative design justified, says British brand

Bentley says it didn’t want the new Bentayga to represent two wholly new concepts for the brand at once, which is why its first-ever SUV relies heavily on a set of predetermined exterior designs. Speaking to CarAdvice this week at the Bentayga's global launch in California, Darren Day, the company’s head of interior design, admitted it was too great a risk to create the brand’s first SUV and a new design language to go with it...
