SUV demand is expanding from year to year. This is backed up with a fact that even some car makers that never ventured into this realm decided to enrich their lineup with large crossovers. Some of them are Alfa Romeo Stelvio and even Lamborghini Urus. But all of the SUV’s somehow fell into other picture when famous car maker that is known of luxury limousines decided on Bentayga. Yes, that’s the name of the newest SUV on the market coming from the British manufacturer Bentley. Bentayga is already the fastest, most luxurious and most expensive SUV yet. Released only a while back in 2015, British carmaker doesn’t intend to stop, and this is what 2018 Bentley Bentayga will bring new.

The design will not differ much from the original, but some changes must take place if Speed version would succeed. Yes, that’s right; Bentley Bentayga Speed will see broad daylight.

2018 Bentley Bentayga – Interior Features

The interior can be configured to seat four or five or even seven and it’s packed with luxury features. This is quite normal for this car maker since it defines high luxury for quite some time. Let’s just say that customer can choose from 15 different hides. The Speed interior will not differ too much from original Bentayga but will certainly get a sportier trim. Those may come with diamond-quilted leather seats, color contrasts, and carbon fiber inserts. There will also be different gauges on the instrument cluster. And Bentley’s famous option should also be available. The word is about most expensive dashboard clock, Mulliner Tourbillon which is priced at $170.000. So if a customer loves fancy watches, this is what is about.

2018 Bentley Bentayga – Revised Engine

Bentayga gets power from the W12 engine, but it will possibly get revised for Bentayga Speed. In Bentayga this engine delivers 600 horsepower, acceleration from 0-60 mph takes just 4 seconds while top speed is 187 mph. This number will probably grow, and even if twin turbo 6.0-liter W12 engine remains, the output should be around 650 horsepower. Eight-speed automatic transmission will remain as well as AWD. Bentley will probably aim at 200mph mark even when Bentayga is already fastest production SUV.

The price is not for the faint-hearted. While the current price of Bentayga amounts $229.100, the number on the price tag of Speed will probably reach $250.000. And that’s without the expensive dashboard watch. Nevertheless, we should see new Bentayga in early 2018.
