Review

The Bentley Bentayga may not be quite as sharp to drive as an Aston Martin DBX, or as cosseting as a Rolls Royce Cullinan, but it strikes a convincing compromise between the two, both in terms of both its price and dynamics. In other words, it’s one of the most complete and compelling SUVs on sale today.

The First Edition is massively expensive but comes with an equally massive equipment list that includes a number of expensive packages such as the Mulliner Driving Specification and the Touring Specification. The former brings goodies such as 22in wheels, diamond quilted seats and jewel fuel and oil filler caps, while the latter includes head up display, night vision and adaptive cruise control. You also get a number of First Edition fascia badges and NAIM audio’s mesmerizing 1780 W sound system.
