Bentayga Diesel combines the segment leading design and technologies of its petrol-powered sibling, with a world first – Bentley’s first ever diesel-powered engine. As expected, this new powertrain delivers performance to match Bentley’s impeccable craftsmanship, while maintaining the unique design features that have placed Bentayga at the top of the luxury SUV market.
Bentayga’s new 4.0 litre engine is not only Bentley’s first diesel engine, but also the world’s finest. Engineered for performance and dynamic response, this 8-cylinder powerhouse keeps clean technology at its heart. Triple-charged with dual turbo chargers and an electric compressor, Bentayga Diesel has the highest output of any diesel SUV at 429bhp. As well as delivering a top speed of 168mph, making this the fastest diesel SUV in production.
The compressor provides near instant power, even at low engine speeds, with no perceptible drop in performance, reaching 60mph in just 4.6 seconds.
The interior of Bentayga Diesel is no less breath-taking than its exterior design. Handcrafted by Bentley’s own experts, Bentayga is only finished with the highest quality materials. Precision metal detailing offsets carefully selected wooden veneers, both painstakingly finished for the most beautiful results.
Exquisite leathers adorn the cabin, featuring signature quilted designs, with design cues taken from high quality tailoring, and overall forms strongly reminiscent of classic shooting jackets. In unison with Bentayga’s extensive exterior personalisation options, Bentley’s interior finish can also be designed around you. With a host of materials and colour options, you can design a completely bespoke driving experience.
Bentayga Diesel is a stunning reinterpretation of Bentley’s design DNA. Crafted with an intelligent mix of materials, high strength steel and aluminium curves come together to form a fluid sculpture combining seamless surfaces and acute lines that make Bentayga unmistakably Bentley.
A striking crease along the flank which rises to meet the rear arch, combined with Bentayga’s increased ride height, make a muscular profile. Innovative forming techniques allow more practical design choices, like fully adaptive LED lamps that sit flush into the bodywork, creating the illusion that every Bentayga is carved, rather than constructed.
Technology & Safety
Just as Bentayga Diesel has been outfitted with the finest diesel engine available, it also features Bentley’s most advanced infotainment technologies to date. Bentley’s trademark ‘intelligent functionality’ features throughout the beautifully designed interior, with a powerful Naim for Bentley audio system, 4G WiFi hotspot, and Apple CarPlay functionality all seamlessly integrated with the majority of functions accessed through a colour touchscreen in the centre console.
Passengers can also take advantage of Bentayga Diesel’s technology through two 10.2” tablets conveniently docked to the headrests. Both tablets can be removed from the headrest to function as handheld devices and tap into all the car’s entertainment systems.
Bentayga Diesel also boasts intelligent driving systems, with integrated satellite navigation, head-up display and nightvision.
