Interior layout

The interior layout, fit and finish

There are a few clues inside that give away the Bentayga's roots, but no more than you’d find in other Bentleys, such as the Continental GT.

The new electronic controller for the eight-speed gearbox leaves more room around it for additional switches and convenience features. Ditto the steering wheel, which gets manual override paddles but, as in a Volkswagen or Audi, they’re small and rotate with the wheel.

Meanwhile, the 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system is functional and easy to use, and is the best we've tried in a Bentley yet. That said, it’s not as responsive or visually impressive as the system in the Audi Q7.

The materials around you are what will elevate the Bentayga in the opinions of many, with leather and veneer, turned aluminium air vents and their organ stop adjusters all reminding you that a lot of attention has been paid to this interior. There is a tremendous feeling of quality, especially the detail on the chrome bezels on the switchgear and on some of the panels.

Importantly, the driver is treated to a suitably luxurious driving position; the Bentayga’s standard seats adjust over a wide range (including lumbar) and so, too, does the steering wheel. Visibility is good in all directions, but standard front and rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera are on hand to help in any case.
