2020 Bentley Bentayga facelift spied

The upcoming mid-life refresh for the Bentley Bentayga has been photographed undergoing hot weather in the mountains of southern Europe. At the front the Bentayga has a bumper with reshaped fog light pods and lower air intake. The crossover will retain its four headlight setup, but the main units seem to be more ovoid than the current set...

Bentley Bentayga V8 Design Series revealed

Bentley has revealed the Bentayga V8 Design Series, developed in collaboration with its Mulliner coachbuilding division to give its SUV a more "visually dynamic" look. As the name suggests, the Design Series is based on the Bentayga V8 petrol variant, picking up a range of existing options and special Mulliner bits to further distinguish it from the 'standard' model...

2018 Bentley Bentayga Pikes Peak Edition revealed

Bentley has toppled the production SUV record at the 2018 Pikes Peak International Hillclimb, and will celebrate the feat with a run of 10 special editions. It was a good weekend to be chasing records in Colorado. Volkswagen set a new overall course record in the all-electric I.D. R, and Rhys Millen hustled a lightly modified Bentayga up the 156 corners of Pikes Peak in 10:49...

Bentley prepares to tackle Pikes Peak in modified Bentayga

Rhys Millen and Bentley are preparing to chase the production SUV record up the fearsome Pikes Peak hillclimb in a Bentayga prepared by Bentley Motorsport. Nope, we aren't pulling your leg. The current SUV record on the famed strip of Colorado blacktop – formerly gravel, alas no longer – is 12:53...

Bentley offers biometric lockbox in Bentayga

Most cars have a lockable glovebox, and maybe some kind of security in the centre console. For most owners, that isn't a problem. As you've probably gathered by now, the Bentley Bentayga isn't most cars, and the brand's average buyers aren't most owners.  That's why there's a new biometric lockbox for the centre armrest, designed to "stow valuables while at the beach, on the ski slope or utilising valet parking services"...

Bentayga V8: Talking active anti-roll with Peter Guest

The Bentley Bentayga V8 recently launched to the motoring press might have a lightweight aluminium body, but that doesn't make it a lightweight SUV. It tips the scales at nearly 2.4-tonnes, more than a Porsche Cayenne Turbo S and slightly less than a Range Rover. It's an enormous mass to manage, especially given the grunt at play from the 4...

2018 Bentley Bentayga Hybrid revealed

The Bentley Bentayga Hybrid has been revealed at the Geneva motor show this week, marking the classic British brand's first tentative step into electrification. There are no obvious visual differences between the Bentayga Hybrid and its internal-combustion brethren, though copper 'Hybrid' badging and bronze Bentley badging are small giveaways...
