Bentley Bentayga

The Bentley Bentayga is a front-engine, all-wheel drive, five-door luxury sport utility vehicle being marketed by British car manufacturer Bentley since 2016, albeit the production takes place at the Volkswagen Zwickau-Mosel fabric, and is final assembly occurs at the company’s Crewe factory.

Bentley unveiled the name “Bentayga” in January 2015. The name was inspired by Taiga, the world’s largest transcontinental snow forest, and is composed of the first four letters of Bentley and an altered spelling of Taiga. Bentley also drew inspiration from the rugged peak of the Roque Bentayga in Grand Canaria, the subtropical Canary Island. Bentayga likewise means “carried interest” in Swahili.

The W12 Bentayga has a top speed of 301 km/h. Bentley announced it to be the world’s fastest production SUV in 2016. The Bentley Bentayga can go from 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) in 4.0 seconds. The Bentayga uses a 48 volt electrical system to control its electrically controlled active anti-roll bar (EWAS), which helps the heavy SUV reduce body-roll.
