After announcing the renewal of the entire Bentley Bentayga range, the British manufacturer shows us the specific details of the Bentayga Hybrid, which is expected to be the best-selling version of the model. The 2021 Bentley Bentayga Hybrid is coming the next summer to dealers accompanied by interesting -but discreet- aesthetic improvements.
As in the other models in the range, on the front we can see new bumpers, renewed air intakes and new optics that adopt the technology LED Crystal Star Matrix manufacturer. In addition, it is worth highlighting the introduction of heated windscreen wipers with 22 washing jets on each arm.
At the rear the novelties are very similar, focusing on the oval-shaped LED taillights; the hatchback, the split oval tailpipes, and the bumper. Curiously, rear track has grown 20 mm, allowing the repositioning of the wheels in the arches to improve stability and driving dynamics.
As with other Bentley models, a wide range of paint options, with more than 17 standard paint colors and an additional 47 shades available in the Extended and Mulliner ranges, plus an additional 24 two-tone options. To top it off, Bentley will create custom colors.
Inside you can see a redesigned center console, with a 10.9-inch infotainment screen that integrates Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, online services, USB-C ports, integrated SIM card, a new navigation system with satellite maps and “super high resolution” graphics. A wireless charger is added to smartphones.
The design of the air vents and the steering wheel, inherited from the Continental GT and Flying Spur, have also been redesigned. Similarly, there has been a improvement of materials and new possibilities for upholstery and trim, including premium leather and Alcantara.
Rear seat passengers will enjoy a new, larger touchscreen remote control tablet, similar to the one introduced in the new Flying Spur. Furthermore, the rear seats are now available with ventilation in the five-seat configuration and there are up to an additional 100 mm of legroom.
Under the hood, the new hybrid keeps the gas block V6 3.0 Turbo with 340 hp (250 kW) of power in combination with another electric one that develops 128 HP, achieving a combined total figure of 449 hp (330 kW) and 700 Nm of torque. The 168-cell lithium-ion battery has 17.3 kWh capacity that he grants 39 km autonomy according to the WLTP cycle.
We will have to be attentive to see what happens in Spain, since being below 40 km of electric autonomy, may not benefit from the ZERO environmental label. The average consumption declared is 3.5 l / 100, with an emission level of 79 g / km of CO2. A full charge will take about 2.5 hours at speeds up to 7.2 kWh.
Continuing with the declared data, the new model reaches a maximum speed of 254 km / h And it can go from 0 to 100 km / h in 5.4 seconds. As standard, it has several operating programs (EV Drive, Hybrid Mode and Hold Mode), navigation system Bentley Hybrid Efficiency And, of course, it has all-wheel drive.
In our country, all Bentayga Hybrid will be equipped with LED headlights, leather trim, navigation system, overhead camera, adaptive cruise control, traffic sign reader, automatic gate, electric and heated seats, digital instrumentation, keyless access, panoramic roof and a long etcetera.
