Review

The Bentayga excels in performance and luxury, but not by enough to be a better buy than far less expensive rivals

get the best price

Trim: Mulliner

If Bentley's long list of options on its standard Bentayga isn't enough, opting for the Mulliner version takes things even further. It's only available with the range-topping W12 engine, but you get bespoke alloy wheels and even more personalisation options inside and out. It'll cost you quite a bit more for that level of choice, though.

Engine: 4.0 V8

Slightly slower than the W12, but you are extremely unlikely to be disappointed with this engine. It is still monstrously quick and refined, plus it gets a great exhaust note. Fuel costs might not be a primary concern for buyers in this price bracket, but because the V8 offers almost identical performance as the W12 but with slightly more palatable fuel economy, it's our pick of the range.
