Five controversial car designs of 2016: Help us decide, and win!

Here's the thing about design: it's immensely subjective. If a car rides poorly, or suffers noticeable road noise in the cabin, there's not much of an argument to be had there. It is what it is. (That said, we always find a way...) Styling, though? That's a whole other beast...

Bentley Bentayga v Bentley EXP 9F Concept: styling face-off

As any model does, the all-new Bentley Bentayga has found its share of detractors when it comes to styling. But, the thing is, so did the bold and vaguely retro-futuristic EXP 9F concept that came before it. Indeed, back in 2012, reports out of Europe suggested that sources within Bentley had conceded that the EXP 9F's styling was "a little heavy-handed", moving the marque's designers to return to the drawing board...

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...

Bentley Bentayga 'coupe' in development, possibly ready by 2019

Preliminary work has begun on a Bentley Bentayga "coupe" and it could be on the market by 2019. Wolfgang Duerheimer, CEO of Bentley, told Automotive News that the company has already begun preliminary design and engineering work of a "coupe" version of Bentayga. Duerheimer said that design-wise, it was best to "imagine the EXP 10 [Speed 6 coupe concept] as an SUV — it doesn’t look 'old Bentley'"...

Ferrari SUV: 'You have to shoot me first', says chairman

The only major ‘holdout’ not making a super-luxury SUV at this point is Italian icon Ferrari. The Lamborghini Urus, Maserati Levante, Bentley Bentayga and a certain unnamed Rolls-Royce are coming. Porsche has been making the Cayenne more than a decade. This fact was always a a point of pride for previous Ferrari boss Luca Cordero di Montezemolo...
