The new Bentayga Diesel is the first diesel-engined Bentley in the company’s 99-year history. But purists can rest easy; the triple-charged 4.0 litre V8 is both immensely powerful and delightfully refined, just as a Bentley engine ought to be. These characteristics suit the Bentayga perfectly, whether on the highway or off-road.
The luxury SUV market continues to grow in appeal and Bentley’s Bentayga has reset the bar for both performance and luxury. Originally offered with the silken 6.0-litre W12 petrol engine, the range now gains wider appeal with the arrival of a 4.0 V8 diesel version. Class-leading power and torque figures ensure that performance is very nearly as sensational as that of its W12 stablemate, with the additional bonus of a range between fill-ups of around 620 miles.
Externally, there are a few subtle clues to distinguish the new Bentayga Diesel from the W12 model. The lower front door edge carries a V8 Diesel badge and the exhaust features ‘twin quad’ tailpipes. But the most distinctive feature is the black matrix grille, with a chrome surround and central bar, in place of the W12 Bentayga’s all-chrome version. The new black grille is intended as a design signature for the diesel powertrain and gives the Bentayga Diesel a purposeful air. A 20" ten-spoke alloy wheel is offered as standard, with the option of a Mulliner Driving Specification 21" wheel in silver or grey.
Inside the full range of Bentayga wood veneers, leather colours and options is available, including the beautifully-crafted Mulliner Hamper Set, sections of which cleverly convert into outdoor seats. Among the choice of veneers is a new Liquid Amber finish.
The new Bentayga Diesel is built around an engine that enables you to explore the furthermost corners of the Earth, efficiently and effortlessly: the first diesel engine in the marque’s history. The world’s most refined 8-cylinder diesel engine, it is also the fastest luxury diesel SUV, created to deliver world-class Bentley performance seamlessly on and off-road, combined with an extended range.
This 4.0 litre, 8-cylinder, 32-valve engine has adopted much of the same technology that makes the W12 the most technically advanced engine in the world. Designed to deliver the driving experience with which all Bentley owners are familiar, the engine’s responsiveness goes far beyond what might reasonably be expected from a diesel engine. It all starts with the two conventional turbochargers to which is paired an electric compressor. This innovative compressor system is driven by Bentayga’s impressive 48V power supply. This groundbreaking arrangement delivers astonishing levels of torque – 900 Nm (664 lb ft) even at low engine speeds. The electric compressor spools up in 30 microseconds, delivering instantaneous power with no perceptible lag inacceleration.
The results of this formidable new V8 diesel engine become apparent the moment you press
on the accelerator, taking this extraordinary diesel from 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds (0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds). With a top speed of 168 mph (270 km/h), Bentayga Diesel is the fastest diesel SUV on the market.
It offers the kind of power never before seen in a car of this class – the highest output of any diesel SUV at 429 bhp (435 PS). This engine delivers class-leading drivability and refinement. It will come as no surprise that it feels and responds in a familiar way – like a typical Bentley engine. The combination of high power and torque also gives total confidence when towing, under any circumstances.
Bentayga Diesel has the power and adaptability you need to take on a variety of challenging surfaces. Drive Dynamics Mode offers smooth rides, over some of the toughest environments, with absolute confidence and total control. You can switch between four on-road settings – Comfort, Sport, Custom and Bentley – using an intuitive rotary control. This makes choosing the right setting for your mood or conditions effortlessly simple.
There are also four Responsive off-road modes, which give enhanced performance and complete peace of mind over a variety of testing surfaces.
The V8 diesel engine affords the added convenience of an extended range between fuel stops of over 1,000 km. The 85 litre tank, together with a combined fuel consumption of only 36 mpg (7.9 l/100 km) cements Bentayga Diesel’s position as the SUV in which to cross continents.
The innovative, clean technology enables the V8 diesel to be fully compliant with the latest EU6 and LEV3 emissions legislation, allowing it to achieve the impressive figure of only 210 g/km of carbon dioxide emissions.
Innovative technology is at the heart of Bentayga Diesel. Every aspect has been designed to enhance your experience, not overwhelm you with unnecessary gadgets or overload you with unnecessary information. As a result, each carefully integrated technological advance is always at your fingertips the moment you need it, without distracting you when you don’t.
The ‘intelligent functionality’ makes every journey more comfortable and satisfying, whether in the driving seat or relaxing as a passenger.
Bentayga Diesel features triple-charging technology. This means that there are two conventional turbochargers coupled with an innovative electric compressor, driven by Bentayga Diesel’s impressive 48V power supply. As a result, it delivers an unprecedented 900 Nm (664 lb ft) of torque, even at low engine speeds for complete control and confidence in any conditions or when towing.
The 'Naim for Bentley' audio system enhances any musical experience, thanks to the 1,950 watt amplifier, the driver is immersed in sound by the most powerful Naim audio car sound system ever built into an SUV. It harnesses active bass speakers, which add another low-frequency dimension to the overall audio experience – allowing sound to be ‘felt’ as well as heard. No less than 20 speakers including nine combined mid-range and tweeters and a 300 watt sub-woofer ensure every note is reproduced to perfection. A pair of super tweeters extends the high frequencies, giving the system the widest frequency range available.
Having set the mood with your choice of music, you can now match the ambience in the Bentayga cabin with the new Mood Lighting function. There is a choice of six different pre-set modes, each with a different colour and intensity. ‘My mood’ is a seventh setting, that lets you subtly personalise the interior lighting to match your own particular mood.
Passengers will find plenty to keep them occupied in the rear seats of Bentayga, whether they are enjoying the view as the world glides by or exploring the many infotainment options. The rear headrests feature two 10.2” tablets that connect you with the vehicle’s entertainment systems. With the convenience of a mobile tablet, you can tap into everything the car’s infotainment system has to offer, or lose yourself in your own world with the Bluetooth headphones. The tablets can also be used as fully functional handheld devices whether you’re in or out of the car. An impressive array of features includes internal memory, micro SD and USB slots.
Bentayga was a striking reinterpretation of the Bentley design DNA. Bentayga Diesel is cut from the same cloth, featuring a number of distinctive design features exclusive to the model that further enhance its unique character.
Bentayga Diesel, like its sibling, has an advanced aluminium exterior, covering a structure that blends aluminium castings with high-strength steel. Subtle new styling details include the gloss black matrix grille, which has a chrome surround and centre bar feature, and two twin-quad tailpipes at the rear. The car also features the new ‘V8 DIESEL’ badge that sits on the lower edge of the front doors, which can, if you prefer, be replaced with a Union flag badge.
An additional wheel design, with 21” rims, has been created to complement the existing 20”, 21” and 22” range. This is available for Bentayga Diesel as part of the Mulliner Driving Specification (cost option). Whichever chosen wheels, the designs offer the perfect balance between style and performance. They are available in silver-painted or grey-painted finishes with machined accents (cost option).
Inside Bentayga Diesel are even more distinctive design details that bestow a unique look and feel, handcrafted in Crewe by our expert craftspeople. The fluted seat design is both simple and elegant, with the pattern repeated on the door pads. We have also added a new upper trim in a highly tactile, technical fabric called Eliade, designed to contrast with therest of the cabin, which is trimmed in leather. Available in five colours, it adds another level of luxury to the interior. The wood veneers are carefully selected, cut and matched to create a seamless ‘ring’ of wood that flowsaround the interior. A new veneer choice in Liquid Amber is available as a cost option. Carefully hewn from the American sweet gum tree, its straight grain offers a very contemporary look. You’ll find every detail has been attended to, including the ‘Bentley’ treadplates and the classic ‘B’ design foot pedals, fitted as standard.
