SUV to join Bentley stable, and it's called Bentayga

By CARSIFU | 13 January 2015

CREWE/DETROIT: Bentley’s SUV is set to be revealed to the world later this year and it already has a name: Bentayga.

The SUV would introduce Bentley’s modern British luxury to the world with an impressive combination of on and off road performance.

The natural world, along with the company’s founder, inspired its name. Crowning the Northern Hemisphere, to the north of Bentley’s birthplace in England, is the dramatic beauty of the Taiga, the world’s largest transcontinental snowforest. To the south, the rugged peak of the Roque Bentayga in the subtropical Canary Islands draws attention from all directions and a challenging climb rewards with  panoramic views of a diverse landscape.

“Bentayga is a name that reflects what we know our SUV will do better than any other car in the world – combine the best automotive luxury with outstanding performance to take the Bentley experience to new environments,” said Bentley Motors chairman/CEO Wolfgang Dürheimer.

The new Bentley Bentayga will be revealed later in 2015, and go on sale in 2016.
