2021 Bentley Bentayga V8 revealed with new taillights and cabin
The updated luxury barge strives to look like its lightweight siblings Flying Spur and Continental GT, but generally stays true to its predecessor from 2015.
The radiator grille becomes larger and less slanted, the LED Matrix headlights move 30 mm (1.2”) upwards, there are now larger air deflectors on the front fenders, and the lower door moldings are different, too.
To us, the main stylistic change is in the brake lights, which have been redesigned from scratch and could admittedly take some getting used to. The license plate now sits on the bumper, because a Bentley badge now occupies its previous place.
The rear wheel span gains 20 mm (0.8”), the foor spoiler becomes longer, the oval exhaust tips larger in diameter and the windshield wipers now feature heated sprayers. A couple new 22-inch wheel options has been added to the configurator, and two new paintjobs become available.
Changes inside are fairly extensive and include new seats, steering wheel, door upholstery, and digital dashboard. The infotainment system now measures 10.9 inches across , there is just one central air deflector instead of dual round ones, and the rear row passengers get their own, large infotainment tablet. The four-seater version benefits from more interior space, while the five-seater gets a ventilated rear sofa.
The car that premieres today is the Bentley Bentayga V8, whose four-liter gasoline mill still churns out 550 hp (410 kW) along with 770 Nm (568 lb-ft) of torque, taking it from zero to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 4.5 seconds. The Bentayga Hybrid and the W12-packing Bentayga Speed will be unveiled later.
