The 2016 Bentayga Diesel was the first diesel in Bentley's history. The world’s most refined 8-cylinder diesel engine, it was developed to deliver world-class Bentley performance with the extended range of a diesel engine.
This model features a number of distinctive and exclusive design features including a gloss black matrix grille with a chrome surround and centre bar, along with two twin-quad tailpipes at the rear. It also features a ‘V8 DIESEL’ badge that sits on the lower edge of the front doors. In addition, ‘Bentley’ treadplates and the classic ‘B’ design foot pedals are fitted as standard.
Its 4.0 litre, 8-cylinder, 32-valve diesel engine delivers a top speed of 168 mph (270 km/h) and achieves 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds (0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds). With a power output of 429 bhp (435 PS), this engine delivers class-leading drivability and refinement. It will come as no surprise that it feels and responds in a familiar way – like a typical Bentley engine.
Bentayga Diesel’s extended range of over 1000km is made possible courtesy of its highly efficient engine, an 85-litre tank and a host of other technical refinements. The engine also delivers a combined fuel consumption of only 35.3 mpg (8.0 l/100 km).
