Bentley’s updated Bentayga SUV has now landed in Singapore, and prices start from S$889,000 before COE and options
SINGAPORE — The new Bentley Bentayga has now arrived in Singapore, following a virtual launch event held on 27 November, and the luxury SUV retails for S$889,000 before adding Certificate of Entitlement (COE) or options.
While Bentley dubs the updated Bentayga as ‘new’, it is technically an extensive mid-life facelift. That said, the new Bentayga features some pretty substantial styling revisions to distinguish it from the original that was launched in 2015.
The grille now sits more upright, and the headlights are now higher up the car, and spaced wider apart from each other. The lamps also features 82 LEDs each, and incorporate the crystal cut glass design that was first seen on the new Continental GT and Flying Spur.
The redesign is even more significant at the rear, with the Bentayga now featuring a new tailgate design that stretches across the width of the car. The taillights are also now slimmer and oval-shaped, mimicking those of the other Bentley models in the line-up.
On the inside, the Bentayga gets new door trims, and a redesigned steering wheel and air con vents. The infotainment touchscreen has also been updated, and the 10.9-inch display now sits flush and edge-to-edge on the centre console, while wireless Apple CarPlay is also now available as standard.
Bentley will offer the Bentayga with a choice of four, five or seven seats, as before, and the five-seater version gains new ventilated rear seats that can recline even further than before. There is also a new 5-inch portable Touch Screen Remote control tablet that can allow rear passengers to control the air con and infotainment functions for that true towkay experience.
At launch, the sole engine variant for the new Bentayga will be the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8, which has been carried over, and develops 550hp and 770Nm of torque. This propels the car from 0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds, and lets it reach a top speed of 290km/h.
Other variants are expected to follow in the year ahead, including a high-performance Bentayga Speed model with a 6.0-litre W12. Hybrid and petrol-electric versions are also said to be in the works, and will arrive in the later part of 2021.
