Used 2019 Bentley Bentayga SUV
Which Bentayga does Edmunds recommend?
In the absence of typical trim levels, the main choices in the Bentayga lineup are between the V8 and W12 engines. The V8 has more than enough power for any driver and costs a whopping $64,000 less. Whichever you choose, we suggest adding the optional City Specification and Touring Specification packages for their safety and driver assistance features.

|Overall||7.7 / 10|
Part SUV and part Saturn V rocket, the Bentayga makes as much of a statement with its 568 horsepower as its styling. Braking and handling capability are nearly up to the same level but lack the feel they should have at this price. Multi-modal terrain setting and air suspension give a commendable off-road performance.
The Bentayga checks all the boxes here. From supremely comfortable front seats to near vault-like silence at high speeds, the SUV no doubt sets the standard for the class. The only blemishes are the downmarket climate controls and somewhat plain-looking rear bench seat.
The Bentayga benefits from being not too high off the ground, which not only makes it easy to get in and out of but also improves forward visibility. Drivers can get comfortable immediately but might be puzzled by the placement of some controls. Rear-seat passengers might expect a bit more legroom in a Bentley.
It's unlikely a Bentayga will ever do any errands at a home improvement warehouse, but there's adequate space for an SUV of this size. Curiously, the cargo area isn't trimmed with any real luxury touches and looks a bit unspecial. Interior storage isn't overly abundant, but it is practical and keeps items secure.
While the technology you can't see, stuff like the trick suspension, is impressive, what you can see is a disappointing mix of dated technology and parts from other nowhere near-luxury cars. The expensive audio system wasn't up to snuff either. It spoils the otherwise luxurious interior.

W12 4dr SUV AWD (6.0L 12cyl Turbo 8A)
There’s nothing really to say, accept this car is amazing, the one problem though, is the price. But that’s really all there’s to say! So I recommend this car!
W12 4dr SUV AWD (6.0L 12cyl Turbo 8A)
Not pretty but imposing. Excellent interior with 1990s infotainment .The W12 engine is a rocket while its trasmission while fast and precise, is very "reactive" and switches gears too often at medium speed city traffic possibly due to cylinder deactivation technology. Excellent ride and silence, very polished.Does not feel as big as it is behind the wheel.. some minor rattles have appeared and will need to be taken care of . Overall , aside from its challenging looks, an amazing automobile powered by a Rocket....
Mulliner 4dr SUV AWD (6.0L 12cyl Turbo 8A)
VW had a lot to say with the Bentayga, Urus and others within the group. Season, save money on underspend designs. The Bentayga is a stunning Suv. Don't need luxury in the boot, but Bentley do give you some expensive options.The audio is excellent but the MMI could of been upgraded. Install a wide body Mansory kit for about £85000 (Not cheap) but it makes the motor Amazing, try and keep away from keeping the bonnet & radiator couling Carbon look, if painted with the right body colour, it will look Stunning
