The first ever full-luxury SUV, the Bentley Bentayga, is now available for order in China as well.
After debuting at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, in a world premiere, the Bentley Bentayga is now arriving in Asia, as the company has announced its Chinese launch. The vehicle is available for 3.98 million yuan, or the equivalent of 630,000 USD, at the current exchange rates, and this is almost three times the amount for what the SUV costs in the United States, 229,000 USD. In the UK, the Bentayga is available from 160,200 GBP. Thousands of orders have been placed for it, despite the steep price, which is common in the Asian country for luxury and exotic vehicles.
The Bentley Bentayga has a familiar design and it’s an evolution of the EXP 9 F Concept, shown a few years ago. The vehicle has an extremely luxurious cabin, with two 10.2-inch tablets for the rear entertainment system, 1950-watt Naim Bentley Premium Audio System, and premium materials covering every surface. Under its hood we can find the 6.0 liter TSI W12 engine, which is capable of producing a total of 608 HP (447 kW) and a peak torque of 900 Nm (663 lb-ft). This is the range-topping version of the SUV which needs 4 seconds to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill. Rumor has it that other units will be introduced under the hood of the Bentayga as well.
