Bentley Bentayga revealed, late 2016 debut likely for Australia

The all-new Bentley Bentayga has been given a digital unveiling, revealed online today ahead of its world premiere at this month’s Frankfurt motor show. Named for the Roque Bentayga, one of the largest rock formations on the island of Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands, Bentley’s first-ever SUV promises opulent touring and, as an earlier teaser video suggests, some amount of off-road ability.

Borgward SUV previewed in new sketch ahead of Frankfurt debut

Germany’s reborn Borgward brand has issued another preview for its first new model in 54 years, a luxury SUV that will be unveiled in Frankfurt on September 15. In July, the ‘new’ carmaker handed down a teaser photo that revealed a glimpse of the new SUV’s rump, flanked by proud Borgward executives. Earlier shots of a camouflaged SUV lapping the Nurburgring have also revealed a little about the new model’s overall proportions, but, for now, its final styling remains a secret.
