The Bentayga stands out as the most luxurious SUV on the market. It has been on the market for a couple of years and we are still waiting to see a model that would be a good match in terms of luxury. On the other side, many complain about the fact that, despite the huge price tag, this isn’t the fastest SUV around. Of course, there is the new Lamborghini Urus, while there are also a few more super-capable SUVs to come in the near future. Therefore, Bentley has prepared a new version for the next year, called 2020 Bentley Bentayga Speed. This will be the most capable version of Bentayga so far. It will come with more power, but also with numerous exclusive features that will accentuate its hi-performance character. On the other side, the rest of the lineup should carry on in the same way, without more important changes. Therefore, expect to see it sometime late in the year.
2020 Bentley Bentayga Speed Specs
Of course, the most important novelty for the next year is the new 2020 Bentley Bentayga Speed. This is a hi-performance version, which comes to compete with Lamborghini Urus, in terms of performances. In terms of luxury, this SUV is still pretty much untouchable. This particular version will come with a fine number of exclusive features. When it comes to the exterior design, we are about to see a couple of styling upgrades. One of the first things you’ll notice is blacked exterior, as well as a new set of 22-inch wheels. Also, there is a new, bigger splitter, as well as a new, bigger rear spoiler. Finally, count on tinted headlights and various other details that will make it distinctive. Among them, count on several “Speed” badges around the vehicle.
On the inside, this version will also come with a couple of nice details. The first thing you’ll notice is two-tone upholstery, as well as contrast stitching around the cabin. Furthermore, there are Alcantara seats, as well as custom tread plates. You can also get carbon fiber trim, though this feature is optional.
Under the hood, the 2020 Bentley Bentayga Speed will come with a well-known 6.0-liter W12 engine, which features a small power boost for this occasion. A max output now goes up to 626 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. Such amount of power is expected to ensure 0-60 time in about 3.9 seconds, while top speed will go up to 190 mph. Of course, it comes with 8-speed automatic transmission, with standard AWD.
2020 Bentley Bentayga Design
This new version will definitely bring a lot of excitement, but the rest of the lineup is expected to carry on the same way, despite what some reports were suggesting Bentley Bentayga Facelift 2020. We are about to see familiar design characteristics, including the same recognizable styling. On the inside, count on all the luxury you can imagine. It’s not just about the style and hi-end materials, but also about impressive craftsmanship, as many parts of the cabin are actually hand-made. However, the 2020 Bentley Bentayga interior isn’t as spacious as you would expect to be. Although a mid-size crossover, its rear bench isn’t particularly generous in terms of leg and headroom. Also, the cargo volume could be bigger.
Another complaint goes to the list of standard features, as base versions miss some essentials. Generally, it isn’t anything too critical, but we don’t expect any drawback at this price range.
Under the hood, the 2020 Bentley Bentayga will continue in the same way. As we already mentioned, there is a new version of the well-known W12 engine, which comes with a nice power boost. On the other side, the standard version of the engine will continue in the same way. It delivers around 600 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. Of course, there are more affordable versions in the offer as well. One of them is with a 4.0-liter V8 engine, which delivers around 550 horsepower. On certain markets, you can also get a diesel version, which also features eight cylinder and 4.0 liters in displacement. A max output goes around 430 horsepower and 665 pound-feet of torque. This is a great alternative for those who want to save some fuel.
Finally, there is a hybrid version, based on a 3.0-liter V6 engine. It features a combined output of around 460 horsepower and 515 pound-feet of torque.
2020 Bentley Bentayga Release Date and Price
The new Speed version might come a little bit earlier than usual, but are pretty sure that standard models will come in typical time, sometime late in the year. When it comes to the 2020 Bentley Bentayga price, latest reports suggest that the new hi-performance version will go around 260.000 dollars. The rest of the lineup should keep the same price, so base versions should go around 165.000 dollars.
