Which Bentayga does Edmunds recommend?
Let's be honest. If you're going to buy a 2018 Bentley Bentayga, you're going to get whichever one you want the most. Whichever Bentayga matches your watch collection best or clashes with your supercar least, that's the one you'll choose. But, we'll dream for a minute and select our ideal Bentayga, too: the Signature. The Signature is a new trim level for 2018 that adds equipment such as parking aids, additional off-road driving modes, and Bentley's sophisticated Dynamic Ride system. From there, you can custom-build your Bentayga with pretty much any aesthetic detail you desire.
Full Edmunds Review: 2018 Bentley Bentayga SUV
The Bentayga exceeds expectations thanks to unbelievable acceleration coupled with impressive handling that doesn't compromise the ultra-luxury ride quality.
The ride quality of the Bentayga — thanks to its air ride suspension — is the focal point. Compared to the supreme luxury found in some of Bentley's other offerings, however, the Bentayga comes up a little short.
For a family taxi, you can do better. Other three-row SUVs are better at taking on multiple passengers. But no other SUV can compare to the Bentayga for overall regality.
Cargo space is less than in some competitors and can't be expanded when equipped with the four-seat layout. That said, with the towing potential taken into account, the Bentayga might be the most utilitarian Bentley.
For the price, the Bentayga starts with very little standard tech. Once optional upgrades are taken into account, the Bentayga can be had with a host of driver aids and excellent infotainment features.
