The Bentley Bentayga was the first true hyper-luxury SUV, an off-roader that made plane the Range Rover squint humdrum, but other automakers haven’t stood idly by since it made its debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. Now every luxury trademark has a high-riding four-door offering, and while Bentley once facelifted the Bentayga for 2021, it’s time for flipside update.

No increasingly W12!

Bentley doesn’t undeniability this a facelift, and in fact there are scrutinizingly no visual upgrades. But the 2024 SUV’s thorough-going updates are increasingly substantial than what we normally get for mid-year changes, and include increasingly equipment and the wing of a trademark new grade. Oh yeah, and no increasingly W12, considering Bentley dropped the Speed when it axed the big motor this year. The only misogynist powertrains for 2024 are the 443 hp (449 PS) V6 PHEV and 542 hp (550 PS) bi-turbo V8.

The big news for 2023 was the inrush of the longer, Bentayga EWB (Extended Wheelbase), and for 2024 some of the stretched car’s most notable tricks make their way onto the shorter model. One of those is rear-axle steering, which is now fitted as standard to the Bentayga S and Azure, and is optional on other models, helping to reduce the turning radius in urban environments and making the SUV finger increasingly wiry on low-speed twisty roads.

Also optional on the shortie are the airline seats that one out of every two EWB customers stumps for. These can wield 177 individual pressure changes wideness six fully self-sustaining pressure zones over a three-hour period to reduce fatigue, and are aided by an will-less climate package built into each chair.

And while we’re on the subject of climate we should requite the heating and ventilation system a special mention. It now uses map data to identify when the Bentayga is well-nigh to enter a tunnel and switches to recirculation mode 10 seconds surpassing you waif into the hole, reverting to fresh air mode 20 seconds without you exit. I wonder if it can do the same with farms?

Other tech-related additions, some of which have been misogynist on far increasingly affordable cars for years already, include smartphone-operated remote parking for the first time and 3D Surround View cameras to help you alimony the new 21-inch wheels self-ruling from prorogue rash. There’s moreover a new ‘Bang & Olufsen for Bentley’ hifi option, eight new exterior colors, increasingly sustainable materials and the endangerment to stratify your Bentayga EWB’s sills, mirror caps and bumper trim with stat by selecting the Styling Specification pack.

But perhaps most importantly, Bentley has widow a new ‘A’ model to help underpass the gap between the standard Bentayga and the luxury Azure. It gets unique ‘A’ badges, 21-inch machine-finish alloys, an Azure-style fluted grille, ventilated massage seats in one of 15 misogynist leather colors, and your nomination of three unshut pore wood veneer finishes on the dash.

Prices for the updated 2024 SUV haven’t been announced, but if you’re not planning on spending upwards of $200k, forget it.
