It’s no surprise that Bentley’s self-proclaimed ‘ultimate SUV’ costs a lot to buy, and it’s actually quite a bit pricier than its closest rivals, such as the Range Rover. Even the cheaper diesel version will set you back more than some houses, meaning you have to appreciate the bespoke craftsmanship of Bentley to want to pay such a huge premium.
Still interested? Then the hefty running costs are unlikely to put you off either. But, more pertinently, you’ll spend less time filling up with the diesel model, thanks to its superior fuel economy.
A lot of standard equipment can be found onboard – and quite right, too. Sat-nav, Bluetooth, a DAB radio, USB connections, automatic LED headlights, auto wipers, heated leather seats, front and rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera are all included. Of course, there’s also a long and expensive options list to peruse. Be careful, though – ticking some boxes will set you back more than £10,000.
At this price level, though, personalisation is key, so Bentley includes 17 paint colours, 15 leathers and eight veneer choices all free of charge. Beyond that, there are 90 optional paints, as well as the ability to simply create your own completely bespoke look, although the latter has no official price. Best not to ask.
