Until 2015, SUV segment was a nightmare for a Bentley. Then Bentayga shows up at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show and suddenly all problems are resolved. This full-size SUV became an instant hit in its segment. And now, the 2019 Bentley Bentayga is coming with plenty of improvements in order to beat its competitors from Maserati or Porsche.
To be exact, there are no real competitors yet, because when one of the most renowned luxury-car brands jumps into the SUV segment, you know the changes are needed. Simply said, Bentayga’s price is a way to high and other SUVs are far from that. The 2019 Bentayga possess an outrageous power and it offers luxurious interior and some exterior colors that no one has seen since the late 70s. Compared to the outgoing model, the upcoming Bentley’s SUV gained a 7-seat option, new wheels, and some new trims as well.

The matrix front grille is large with massive air intakes, and there are four round headlamps next to it. The bumper is almost the same as on 2016 Continental GT. The size view reminds us of the EXP 9 F Concept.
The wheels are 20 to 22-inches and the whole size view looks imposing. A feature we really like is an all-new front-facing parking camera. This camera helps with a bumper-level view with guidelines. It is a great way to avoid scuffing you new Bentayga.
