The Bentley Bentayga SUV Is Set For 2016

  • Lou Ann Hammond

Bentley is the most recent entrant into the fray of luxury-car companies launching new SUV designs. At the 2015 Detroit International Auto Show, the British carmaker revealed that its new SUV would be called the Bentley Bentayga—named for the striking stand-alone peak found on Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands. The vehicle—which is based on the EXP 9 F concept (shown in images above)—will likely be available as a plug-in hybrid or with a diesel engine, thanks to the Volkswagen Group’s extensive resources. Bentley has already started designing the Bentayga interior, with woods and leathers that will provide a sumptuous counterpoint to the vehicle’s hard-charging, all-terrain capabilities. The Bentley Bentayga is set to be revealed to the world at an auto show later this year and will go on sale in 2016. (bentleymotors.com)
