After the great success of Bentayga SUV, Bentley plans to add another Bentayga model in its respective lineup. This time, the 2019 Bentley Bentayga Sport Coupe is rumored to hit the car markets around the globe. The idea is to create a coupe-SUV model that will hit the roads at the beginning of 2019.
This comes as no surprise, however, it is more than interesting that the British carmaker opts for a coupe model. If not interesting, then “brave” is maybe a better word that describes this move, considering how SUV segments grow in popularity. It shows how much Bentley is ready to risk with a 2019 Sport Coupe model in a world where most of the customers are opting for a more affordable SUVs.
2019 Bentley Bentayga Sport Coupe exterior is sporty designed
The upcoming 2019 Bentley Bentayga Sport Coupe comes with a sporty appearance and aggressive styling. While we wait for some further details, we know that this coupe model will also arrive with a sloping roofline. That means more headroom from the inside, but it also means a limited cargo capacity. On the other hand, considering how much an SUV model was popular, Bentley is more than confident that the company will make a car with an astonishing design.
We expect a 5-door model with plenty of styling cues taken from the Bentayga SUV. Of course, the styling cues will remain but all of the exterior features will have to be decreased in size. The bumper is same and it holds smaller air intakes. The same treatment continues at the back. Lower suspension, the same set of wheels and some blacked-out features will make a production for sure.
2019 Bentley Bentayga Sport Coupe interior will get carbon-fiber inserts
The interior will hold a plenty of premium features and the feeling inside the cabin is luxurious. It is the same interior as on the SUV model but with more sportiness. The 2019 Bentley Bentayga Sport Coupe will offer plenty of trim packages as well. Seats are finished in a diamond-quilted leather and there will be a couple of two-tone color combinations.
Moreover, expect carbon-fiber inserts all over the cabin. When it comes to a technology features, new dials and controls could make a production, just like the improved graphics. Infotainment system will get an upgrade and possibly a larger touchscreen, while the famous Mulliner Tourbillon clock will be on the offer too.
2019 Bentley Bentayga Sport Coupe powerful W12 engine lying under the hood
The forthcoming 2019 Bentley Bentayga Sport Coupe will get the power from a 6.0-liter W12. This twin-turbocharged gasoline output will generate around 650 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque. With those figures, we can assume that the Bentley’s latest model will hit from 0 to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds. The top speed is rated at around 185 mph. This engine is using an 8-speed automatic transmission, and an all-wheel-drive setup is available.
While the real engine’s figures are still a mystery, the 2019 Bentley Bentayga Sport Coupe will for sure get a hybrid drivetrain as well. The hybrid system will combine a 3.0-liter V6 diesel and a pair of electric motors, however, additional specs are yet unknown.
2019 Bentley Bentayga Sport Coupe price and release date
