With this new Bentayga EWB, Bentley demonstrates all its know-how. This all-new SUV is the very definition of luxury.
As we told you a few days ago, Bentley had planned to present a brand new model this Tuesday, May 10. Rumors announced a restyled Bentayga, they were not mistaken. It is indeed a improved version of the Bentayga that Bentley is present today. And the manufacturer is strong since with this new version of its SUV, Bentley certainly offers the most luxurious SUV on the market.
Bentayga EWB, a mastodon still elongated
So here comes the Bentayga EWB for Extended Whelbase. This new version takes almost everything from the second generation of the Bentayga. With the difference that the chassis has been lengthened by 18cm. This new Bentayga therefore has very generous dimensions since it now measures 5.3 meters long for an impasto measured at 3.1 meters. In terms of exterior design, the changes remain slight. In addition to lengthening the chassis, Bentley slightly modified its front grille. Note also the new 22-inch, 10-spoke rims fitted to the car. This new model recovers the Second-generation 550-hp 4-cylinder V8.
If this new Bentayga EWB has been lengthened, it nevertheless retains a very sporty driving. In addition to the V8 engine, the EWB is equipped with integral electronic steering and the Bentley Dynamic Ride chassis. These two elements allow this Bentayga to maintain a dynamic and precise steering.
At high speeds on the highway, the system performs small adjustments to the direction of travel of the rear wheels, making overtaking and changing lanes safer. At low speeds, the all-wheel steering has the effect of shortening the wheelbase and therefore reducing the turning radius, which makes parking noticeably easier. This is achieved by turning the rear wheels in the opposite direction to the front wheels. The system actually provides a 7% smaller turning radius than the standard wheelbase Bentayga.
Inside, luxury is everywhere
If the exterior of this Bentayga hardly changes, inside on the other hand, developments are important. The second generation was already particularly well equipped and comfortable. This EWB version provides even more luxury and comfort for passengers. Obviously, who says elongated car says more comfort in the rear seats. The new seats installed by Bentley are a invitation to rest and relaxation. In fact, Bentley CEO Adrian Hallmark says it’s the most comfortable Bentayga.
“The Bentayga Extended Wheelbase is our first car truly dedicated to the well-being of its occupants. Every Bentley takes you to your destination feeling more relaxed than when you started your journey, yet with the extended wheelbase we’ve been able to go even further by adopting the world’s first feel-good technology. world integrated into our unrivaled cabin interior design.
The seats, whose manufacturing technique has been revised, are the softest ever produced by Bentley in the words of the brand. These are the new seats Bentley Airlines. It is now possible to recline almost 180° the two rear seats. Everything is completed by three beautiful screens that will allow passengers to be entertained, or to have access to comfort management (air conditioning, seat reclining, brightness in the car, etc.). The Bentayga EWB is also equipped with an all-new sunroof. We also find these new front seats. As for the center console, things have changed little. Bentley keeps the arrangement, always very successful, of its dashboard.
This new Bentayga EWB is therefore a new show of force from Bentley in the luxury market. On the other hand, the brand specifies that this model will not be available, initially, for the European market. The models are already available to order. Three finishes are available. Deliveries will be made by the fall.
