The new Bentayga Diesel is the first diesel in the marque’s history. The world’s most refined 8-cylinder diesel engine, it has been developed to deliver world-class Bentley performance with the extended range of a diesel engine. Bentayga Diesel is an SUV for every kind of journey – whether it’s just around the corner or heading to the farthest corners of the earth. It combines practicality, power and luxury with innovative technology.
Bentayga Diesel features a number of distinctive and exclusive design features that further enhance its individual character. Subtle styling details include the gloss black matrix grille with a chrome surround and centre bar, along with two twin-quad tailpipes at the rear. It also features the new ‘V8 DIESEL’ badge that sits on the lower edge of the front doors.
Inside Bentayga Diesel, distinctive design details created by our expert craftspeople give it a unique look and feel. The fluted seat design is both simple and elegant, with the pattern repeated on the door pads. The upper cabin is trimmed in Eliade – a tactile, technical fabric – designed to contrast with the rest of the leather-trimmed cabin. Available in five colours, it adds another level of finesse to the interior. A new veneer choice called Liquid Amber is available as a cost option, with its straight wood grain offering a very contemporary look. In addition, ‘Bentley’ treadplates and the classic ‘B’ design foot pedals are fitted as standard.
Bentayga Diesel is the fastest and most refined luxury diesel ever built. Its all-new 4.0 litre, 8-cylinder, 32-valve diesel engine delivers a top speed of 168 mph (270 km/h) and achieves 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds (0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds). It also produces the deeply satisfying surge of power that defines the Bentley driving experience. Whether gliding past traffic or negotiating terrain off-road, Bentayga Diesel performs with effortless power and elegance.
It offers the kind of power never before seen in a car of this class – the highest output of any diesel SUV at 429 bhp (435 PS). This engine delivers class-leading drivability and refinement. It will come as no surprise that it feels and responds in a familiar way – like a typical Bentley engine.
Bentayga’s V8 diesel engine has adopted much of the same technology that makes its sibling, the W12, the most technically advanced engine in the world. The combination of high power and torque also gives total confidence when towing, under any circumstances, with Bentayga Diesel able to produce an impressive 900 Nm of torque.
One of Bentayga Diesel’s most striking features is the new ‘triple-charging’. It consists of two mechanical, twin-scroll turbochargers uniquely boosted by an 48V electrical system. While not technically a turbocharger, the third unit helps eliminate turbo lag for impressive responsiveness and speed, on or off-road.
Bentayga Diesel’s extended range of over 1000km is made possible courtesy of its highly efficient engine, an 85-litre tank and a host of other technical refinements. The engine also delivers a combined fuel consumption of only 35.3 mpg (8.0 l/100 km).
Bentayga Diesel has highly impressive performance and extended range capabilities, yet emits just 210 g/km of CO2. This is made possible by the latest clean technology such as a particulate filter and selective catalyst reduction. Combined with a host of other technical refinements, Bentayga Diesel delivers an impressive combined fuel consumption of 35.3 mpg (8.0 l/100 km).
