Bentayga Diesel

Advanced, hugely-powerful V8 diesel is the perfect match for Bentayga versatility.

The new Bentayga Diesel is the first diesel-engined Bentley in the company’s 97-year history. But purists can rest easy; the triple-charged 4.0 litre V8 is both immensely powerful and delightfully refined, just as a Bentley engine ought to be. These characteristics suit the Bentayga perfectly, whether on the highway or off-road.

Overview

Bentley Bentayga

The luxury SUV market continues to grow in appeal and Bentley’s Bentayga has reset the bar for both performance and luxury. Originally offered with the silken 6.0-litre W12 petrol engine, the range now gains wider appeal with the arrival of a 4.0 V8 diesel version. Class-leading power and torque figures ensure that performance is very nearly as sensational as that of its W12 stablemate, with the additional bonus of a range between fill-ups of around 620 miles.

Externally, there are a few subtle clues to distinguish the new Bentayga Diesel from the W12 model. The lower front door edge carries a V8 Diesel badge and the exhaust features ‘twin quad’ tailpipes. But the most distinctive feature is the black matrix grille, with a chrome surround and central bar, in place of the W12 Bentayga’s all-chrome version. The new black grille is intended as a design signature for the diesel powertrain and gives the Bentayga Diesel a purposeful air. A 20" ten-spoke alloy wheel is offered as standard, with the option of a Mulliner Driving Specification 21" wheel in silver or grey.

Inside the full range of Bentayga wood veneers, leather colours and options is available, including the beautifully-crafted Mulliner Hamper Set, sections of which cleverly convert into outdoor seats. Among the choice of veneers is a new Liquid Amber finish.

Technology

Bentley Bentayga

The 4.0-litre V8 diesel’s 429bhp peak power and 900Nm of torque deliver shattering performance: the Bentayga Diesel powers from 0-62mph in just 4.8 seconds and on to a top speed of 168mph. Real-world performance is equally impressive, with peak torque delivered from just 1,000 rpm for immense, effortless power at any engine speed and in any gear. Though few Bentayga owners will venture far off-road, this smooth, seamless power delivery also gives the diesel version immense all-terrain ability.

CO2 emissions of 210g/km are the lowest of any Bentley, and the Bentayga Diesel achieves 35.8mpg on the combined cycle, an excellent figure for a large luxury SUV. Of more practical significance is the range; Bentayga owners taking a continental tour will enjoy up to 620 miles between fill-ups.

Triple-charging is one of the new diesel’s many technical innovations; the two variable-geometry twin-scroll turbochargers are powered by exhaust gases while an additional electric supercharger spools up within 30 microseconds to eliminate lag and deliver razor-sharp throttle response.

The supercharger is powered by the Bentayga’s pioneering 48V electrical system, which also controls Bentley Active Ride. This optional active roll-control system gives the large Bentley SUV the on-road handling characteristics of a sports car along with superb stability and ride comfort.

All the petrol-engined Bentayga’s class-leading features are also standard with the Bentayga Diesel, including multi-mode air suspension with two high off-road settings, one for normal driving and one low for loading and trailer hitching.

On one final, crucial question prospective owners can rest easy; the Bentayga Diesel sounds like a Bentley, not a London taxi. The engine itself is smooth throughout the rev range and the exhaust system has been acoustically engineered to be as quiet and refined as possible. Thanks to such painstaking development the new Bentayga Diesel’s only real rival is its own, petrol-engined stablemate.
