MotorMartin is more that happy to include articles regarding Bentley’s vehicles and sporting prowess as they still represent ‘real life’ motoring, it’s just that this is ‘real life’ for a more selective few. That said, Bentley’s impressive racing program is something that we can all enjoy as their inherent link to Crewe and Cricklewood help us to relate to the Flying Spur. And because of this racing ability, there’s something about Bentley that excites MotorMartin and keeps drawing me back for more. Innovation and opulence are features of the brand and areas that, current owners, Volkswagen are kean to see continuing through the differing models in the range.
Which brings us nicely on to the recently launched Bentayga, an incredible SUV that has only just started to be delivered to Bentley’s customers, see https://motormartin.com/2016/03/24/news-bentley-marks-first-bentayga-deliveries-to-customers/ for details.
It appears that MotorMartin is not the only one who’s been impressed by Bentley’s recent output as the Bentayga has been named SUV of the Year by Robb Report UK.
A panel of automotive experts for this leading luxury title have singled out the new Bentley Bentayga during the judging process for being ‘truly ground-breaking’. And who are we to disagree?
Erin Baker, Automotive Editor at Robb Report UK, commented to MotorMartin that: “The Bentayga creates a whole new segment: the ultra-luxury SUV. It far exceeds the nature of other luxury SUV’s in every respect. Where else in the world would you find such craftsmanship, other than the workshop in Crewe?” Absolutely.
With an all-new W12 powertrain, Bentley have informed MotorMartin that the Bentayga is the fastest, most powerful, most luxurious and most exclusive SUV in the world. They also confirmed to MotorMartin that the Bentayga offers a true Bentley driving experience and showcases innovative technological features, all of which Erin Baker, Automotive Editor at Robb Report UK clearly agrees with.
MotorMartin is aware that the development programme for the Bentayga was the most extensive in Bentley’s history yet was also extremely successful as this resulted in the creation of a completely new luxury SUV segment. In high demand since Bentley announced it would launch this all-new car, the Bentayga has attracted new customers to the brand right around the world.
Kevin Rose, Bentley Member of the Board for Sales, Marketing and Aftersales, shared with MotorMartin that: “The Bentayga is the Bentley of SUVs. It redefines luxury in the SUV sector and offers a genuine Bentley experience in any environment, thanks to a combination of unparalleled attention to detail, go-anywhere ability and cutting-edge technology.”
And what a job Bentley have done. The Bentayga, in MotorMartin’s eyes, is quite simply stunning. Congratulations on your award Bentley, it’s clearly well deserved.
Where will you go?
