This change makes the Bentayga the "world's most versatile luxury vehicle" according to Bentley.
One of the world's most luxurious SUVs is also now one of the most practical because the Bentley Bentayga is now offered with four-seat and seven-seat configurations to make it the "world's most versatile luxury vehicle."
Bentley says these flexible seating options make the Bentayga the "most practical luxury car Bentley has ever built" with room to transport a family of seven in crisp comfort, while the four-seat configuration means the Bentayga can also double as a luxury limousine, giving the Bentayga an advantage over its rivals such as the recently unveiled Aston Martin DBX.
Bentley's four and seven-seat options are available for Bentayga V8 and Speed models, but the Bentayga Hybrid model is only available with four seats. Rear passengers in four-seat models can enjoy most of the same luxury seating features as front occupants, including 12-way electrical adjustment, heating, ventilation and massage functions. While the Bentayga V8 was previously available with four-, five-, and seven-seat options, this is the first time the Speed has been offered with seven seats.
A center console positioned between the two rear seats also provides additional storage, USB charging sockets and a beautifully trimmed and quilted backboard to separate the cabin from the trunk area. Other luxury options include Bentley Rear Entertainment, bluetooth headphones, fold-down picnic tables, and a Mulliner-Console Drinks Cooler.
The more practical seven-seat format, on the other hand, provides extra versatility. At the push of a button, the third row of seats can be folded away electronically, to provide maximum luggage capacity, while the middle row folds manually for ease of access. Bentley Rear Entertainment is also available as an option.
This extra practicality doesn't sacrifice the luxury, however, as the cabin features exquisite materials including rare wood fineers, high-gloss carbon fiber, and hand-stitched leather trim. Powering the Bentley Bentayga is 6.0-liter W12 engine producing 626 horsepower in the range-topping Speed model, which is the fastest SUV in the world with a top speed of 190 mph, beating the Lamborghini Urus.
