Bentley says the new mill, which is offered for the top-of-the-range model will offer a mind-blowing 600 horsepower and 664 lbs. ft. of torque – enough power to propel it from 0-60 mph in just four seconds, and thereafter go on to achieve a top speed of 187 mph.

With it you get, a legitimate off-road ability, prestige and comfort, infinite customization options, and exceptional performance.

The dimensions of the new model stand at 202.4-inches – length, 68.6-inches –height, and 87.5-inches – width. These dimensions compare almost similarly to those of the new Audi Q7, but that is as far as the similarities go. The Bentayga neatly and comfortably seats either four or five passengers.
