Bentley's new Bentayga now available in Asia-Pacific region

KUALA LUMPUR: Bentley Motors has officially introduced its latest Bentayga sports utility vehicle (SUV) in the Asia-Pacific region, and a first-ever interactive virtual experience is accompanying it.

"The new Bentayga has been reimagined to offer the ultimate in power, luxury and usability. We are inspiring our customers and Bentley enthusiasts to embark on a virtual adventure," said Bentley Motors head of marketing (Asia Pacific) Calista Tambajong.

The interactive virtual experience for this British ultra-luxury SUV is available until Jan 4, 2021.

This hand-crafted SUV from Crewe, England, is touted to have combined the abilities of a performance grand tourer, luxury limousine, spacious family car and an off-roader.

The new look of the Bentayga draws its inspiration from the third-generation Continental GT and new Flying Spur in order to unify all of them under a new design language.

Under the hood lies a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine that develops 542bhp and 770Nm of torque.

Power is managed by an eight-speed automatic gearbox for all four wheels - allowing it to sprint from 0 to 100kph in 4.5 seconds and onwards to a top speed of 290kph.

Although considered powerful, the Bentyga is able to achieve up to 639km of range from a single full tank of petrol thanks to the inclusion of cylinder de-activation technology.

Inside, discerning fans of the brand will notice the new centre fascia, steering wheel, door trims and seats - now with ventilation for the rear of the five-seater cabin option.

There's also more rear legroom with up to a 100mm increase depending on configuration.

The new handcrafted 'wing' dashboard design is where the edge-to-edge 10.9-inch display screen lives and plays host to the next-generation infotainment system that boasts of super high-resolution and dynamic graphics.

"Each individual may be drawn to different aspects of the new Bentayga (and) through the interactive virtual experience, we are imparting freedom to our audience to choose the way they explore the Bentayga," added Tambajong.
