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.

This, we need hardly tell you, is a big car, but there's an even bigger version, aimed at people who prefer spending their journeys sitting in the back seats while a chauffeur does the driving. The Bentayga Extended Wheelbase (EWB) is a stretched version, with an extra 180mm of legroom. 

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

We'll compare it with 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 searching our free What Car? New Car Deals pages. It's a great place to find the best new luxury SUV deals.
