Bentley Bentayga

(2016 - present)

The Bentley Bentayga is a large luxury SUV, launched in 2015 before going on sale in the UK in 2016. It is based on the same platform as the Volkswagen Touareg, Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne and Lamborghini Urus.

The Bentayga has received good to very good scores from the 15 UK motoring media sources that we currently track, but still lags behind its principal rival, the Range Rover, in its overall Expert Rating.

The Bentley Bentayga has received particular praise for its comfort, performance and luxury, but has been criticised for its divisive styling and for not feeling sufficiently better than the Audi Q7 on which it is based.
