Bentley Bentayga SUV launch in India scheduled for April 21
While it might come as a surprise to many, the highly luxurious SUV offering from a legendary British luxury car maker, the Bentley Bentayga, is scheduled to be launched in India on the 21st of April. But what is so surprising about it? Well, there are only a few markets in the world where the Bentayga SUV has been introduced. This affirms the fact that officials at Bentley have noticed a certain potential for premium SUVs in the country. For those who still can’t understand our excitement, let me point a simple fact; Bentley Bentayga is the fastest, most luxurious, most powerful, and the most expensive SUV in the world!
The Bentley Bentayga was originally revealed at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, and is based on VW’s MLB-Evo platform. As a result, the Bentayga shares the same chassis that underpins the new-gen Audi Q7. But what differentiates the Bentley from the four-ringed SUV is the amount of luxury features and creature comforts on offer.
The Bentayga certainly looks like no other SUV currently on offer in the market. But one look at this giant is enough to ascertain that it belongs to the Bentley fleet of vehicles. The SUV clearly retains the design philosophy of its siblings, including the Continental GT and Flying Spur. The front fascia gets a large rectangular grille, while round headlamps feature twin-barrel layout. While all this does look elegant, the Bentayga doesn’t loose on sportiness either. LED headlamps, muscular contours, roof rails, and a sloping rear window add dynamism to the car’s character.
Bentley Bentayga interiors can be best termed as opulent, as they are fabricated by using handcrafted leather, wooden inserts, and floating instrument cluster, and aptly designed diamond quilted seats. All these high-end features and advanced technologies take luxury and comfort to a whole new level.
The Bentayga will be powered by a twin-turbo 6.0-litre W12 engine that is capable of generating 600 hp of power, and a heart wrenching torque of 900 Nm. This powering mill is mated to an eight-speed transmission that supplies enough power to the wheels to take the car from 0-100 kmph in just 4.1 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 301 kmph.
Insider sources suggest that Bentley India has just allotted 20 units of the Bentayga SUV for the country, where all of them are already sold out. That sounds astonishing for a 6 crore rupee SUV, doesn’t it?
