Not feel the age of a super luxury SUV from the UK, Bentley Bentayga has entered the number 5 years. No wonder if Bentley recently introduced a facelift from their first SUV. Changes that occur are quite significant, starting from the exterior design that takes the latest Continental GT design language and interior design which is also inspired by the latest Flying Spur. Unfortunately, there is no change in the kitchen runway sector.
Bentley Bentayga 2021 Review and Specifications
The Bentayga facelift’s snout part still adopts Bentley’s characteristic in the form of 4 units of lights with the composition of 2 units of LED Daytime Running Lights and 2 units of main lights. But the Bentley designer team made a few changes to the shape of the lights so it looks more rounded and at first glance looks like the lights on the latest Continental GT and Flying Spur. Now the main lights are using LED Matrix technology. The grille has also changed slightly where it now has a stiffer shape and the boundary line at the center of the grille is now removed.
The front bumper experienced a significant change with a more aggressive and sporty design. Sophisticated, now the windshield wipers are equipped with 22 cleaning units on each blade so the glass can be cleaned better. The biggest breakdown actually occurred on the back. Bentley took the shape of the taillights on the latest Continental GT to this 2021 Bentayga body. The basic aim is to want this luxury SUV to also use the manufacturer’s latest design language.
It takes longer to like and feel like the latest taillights in this car. The shape of the oval LED lights which are oval and smaller makes Bentayga look more elegant than dashing. The position of the police number has also changed where it is now on the rear bumper. Reflector lights and rear fog lights are bigger and wider and the exhaust has a new shape.
Enter the cabin, now Bentayga has a 10.9-inch touch screen on the middle cockpit. The three-spoke steering wheel has the exact same design as Continental GT and Flying Spur. For the rear seat is now available with ventilation. Talking about the rear seats, according to Bentley the rear leg room can be expanded at 100 mm depending on the configuration used.
Besides the rear passengers also get a touch screen tablet to control the menu on the middle cockpit screen. Standard equipment available is a navigation system with satellite maps, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, USB type C plugs, wireless charging, and much more. The interior design of the new Bentayga can also be changed to make it look even more luxurious by its consumers. The trick is to apply a dark aluminum trim with diamond accents. Then there are also two veneer accents that consumers can choose from, namely Koa and Crown Cut Walnut.
The new Bentley announced the V8 variant which did not experience mechanical heart changes. This means that this luxury SUV still relies on a 4,000 cc V8 unit equipped with twin turbo spitting out 542 hp and 770 Nm of torque. The transmission used is an 8-speed automatic and relies on an all-wheel-drive (AWD) drive.
