For all the sumptuous surroundings, the car’s technology is showing its age. In this day, connectivity, clarity of information and the brilliance of the detail in all things digital is as much a luxury experience as plump leather-trimmed pillows that are as soft as a baby’s bottom. The sooner Bentley updates the Bentayga’s infotainment system, to mirror that found in the Continental GT
and Flying Spur
, the better.
As standard, every model comes with the five-seat configuration, an eight-inch touchscreen, sat-nav, climate control, heated leather seats, a full length panoramic sunroof, reversing camera, LED headlights, and soft-close doors. A tow bar is available as an option and the towing weight is 3500kg.
Should you wish to outdo other Bentley owners, you can have the Mulliner division personalise pretty much every aspect of the car, from thick lambs-wool floor mats, to £20,000 picnic hampers, an incredibly powerful Naim 20-speaker stereo or a solid gold Breitling self-winding clock which comes in at over £100,000.
