Introduction

What Car? says...

The Bentley Bentayga marked a whole new direction for the prestigious British brand, as its first ever SUV. When it arrived, it was a trailblazer for high-end luxury SUVs and was virtually unchallenged at its price point.

Since the Bentayga went on sale, the competition has hotted up, with cars including the performance-focused Aston Martin DBX and ultra-luxurious Rolls-Royce Cullinan following in its wake.

The V8 diesel and the range-topping 6.0-litre W12 have now been discontinued and won’t be making a return.

So, does the Bentley Bentayga still have what it takes to stand out in an increasingly competitive class? That's what we'll be exploring over the next few pages of this review.

We'll compare it with rivals including the Lamborghini Urus, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S and the Cullinan for performance, interior quality, practicality, running costs and more. We'll also tell you which engine and trim combination we recommend.

If your interest in buying a new car is piqued, you could save thousands of pounds on many makes and models of vehicle by finding the best prices on the free What Car? New Car Buying service, which has some tempting Bentley Bentayga deals.
