Bentley Bentayga EWB
In 2021, Bentley achieved record sales of 14,659 vehicles, up 31% from the previous year. About a third of the company's profits came from the sale of the Bentayga luxury SUV. Responding to the demands of the most demanding customers, the British manufacturer has decided to release a new version of its Grand Tourer, which has become a benchmark for other cars in this segment. The Bentayga EWB is also a continuation of the very popular Bentley Mulsanne, echoing the unique character of the Bentley brand: top performance, high craftsmanship and endless customization options.
Comfort oriented car
The latest offering from the British manufacturer is based on the second generation Bentley Bentayga. The EWB is 18cm longer and the wheelbase has increased from 2992mm to 3175mm, giving the car ample space in the rear, creating an exceptionally luxurious space.
What else distinguishes the new Bentley SUV is the most modern seats ever fitted to a car. The Bentley Airline Seat offers 22 levels of adjustment, a 40-degree backrest, posture adjustment technology and pressure sensors so it can automatically adjust to the body type of passengers. The car is also equipped with an innovative automatic seat air conditioning system, which allows the car not only to measure the temperature of the passenger and adjust the optimal air conditioning settings, but also to regulate the level of air humidity and 177 pressure levels set in six independent zones. . The purpose of the introduced amenities is to significantly increase comfort and minimize the feeling of fatigue during travel.
“The long wheelbase Bentayga is the first Bentley to focus so much on driver and passenger well-being. The increased wheelbase allowed our engineers and designers to go even further and refine the car's cabin to the smallest detail. According to Adrian Hallmark, President and CEO of Bentley Motors, the extended-wheelbase Bentayga features the world's first wellness technology and is the most luxurious SUV on the market.
To achieve the desired dynamics, the EWB model is equipped with an electric power steering. Thanks to this solution, the turning circle on the 7% is smaller than the standard Bentayga, at just 11.8 meters. It also ensures that there is no compromise between confidence at high speeds and comfort on quiet rides. Additional body control is provided by the standard 48-volt Bentley Dynamic Ride Active Roll Control System.
Combination of the highest comfort with sporty design
The Bentayga EWB is powered by a 4.0-litre, 32-valve, turbocharged V8 petrol engine with 550 hp. and 770 Nm of torque. Paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, the car will accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 290 km/h.
Externally, the EWB model differs from its predecessor with a longer profile, a new front grille, exclusive 22-inch wheels and an offset sunroof. The best-in-class new cab is over 40mm longer than any other luxury SUV. Compared to the Mulsanne, the new Bentayga also has an extra 10mm overhead, while at the same time the roofline is 100mm lower than the competition, resulting in an athletic and extremely proportionate posture.
With the well-being of passengers in mind, the British manufacturer's engineers focused on delivering exceptional ride comfort. At normal driving speeds and in the key frequency range of 5 to 20 Hz, the Bentayga EWB has 27 % fewer vibrations while driving than other vehicles in this segment.
Unlimited personalization options
Building on the Bentley brand's extensive experience in providing its customers with unlimited luxury car customization options, EWB offers a whopping 24 billion interior trim options. On the day of the premiere, two improved specifications will also be presented: Azure and First Edition. Unique 22-inch wheels, colorful bumper covers, modern embroidery and quilting, atmospheric interior lighting, a heated steering wheel and the innovative Naim for Bentley audio system. All these elements emphasize the elegant, timeless and distinctive design.
