The first time Porsche announced that it would be producing a SUV, we didn’t know how to react. The same goes this time around. Bentley confirmed its much awaited SUV, the Bentley Bentayga, will be unveiled later this year and will go on sale in 2016.

This is the first time Bentley has ventured into the SUV segment. Known for making luxury hand crafted cars like the Mulsanne, Flying Spur and Continental GT’s, Bentley is making a bold move entering the SUV segment. It has been named Bentayga after the mountain peak, Roque Bentayga that is situated in the Canary Islands. Bentley had a concept SUV named the EXP 9F, but that car didn’t manage to garner interest amongst the customers.

The car will have a host of driving modes to provide on-road and off-road driving capabilities.
