The Bentley Bentayga is a luxury SUV manufactured by Bentley.
- Text originally from the Bentley Bentayga's Wikipedia page.
An evolution of the 2012 Bentley EXP 9 F concept car, the production Bentayga debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2015 as Bentley's first SUV — using unibody construction and full-time all-wheel drive as well as Volkswagen Group's bi-turbo W12 engine and MLB platform, the latter shared with the second-generation Audi Q7 and the upcoming third-generation Porsche Cayenne, Volkswagen Touareg and Lamborghini Urus.
Available in seating configurations for four, five or seven, the Bentayga was noted at its introduction as the fastest production SUV, with an electronically limited top speed of 187 mph (301 km/h) — as well as the most expensive production SUV.
The "Bentayga" name is a portmanteau of Bentley and Taiga, the world’s largest transcontinental snow forest.
The Bentley Bentayga was introduced in the Black Market Update. Interestingly enough, the in-game's Bentayga's performance figures are substantially worse than the real life depiction, and as a result the vehicle is a low class-S SUV, starting at a rank of 25. blueprints are needed to unlock the Bentayga, and refills cost , with each lasting 3 hours to complete.
The Bentayga has been modified with the addition of a front bulbar with LEDs, rock crawler tires, side steps, a roof rack, and a large, inflatable boat attached to the rack.
When comparing to its own archetype, the Bentley Bentayga is an acceleration focused SUV, at least when it comes to drift-boosting and all-in nitro. The long nitro and all-in nitro is decent for the archetype, and while they are worse than the Range Rover Evoque, the drift-boosting capabilities are surprisingly powerful for the archetype. The steering response is much stiffer than both the Hummer HX and Range Rover and makes the Bentayga rather tricky to transition drifts, but it does have a great drifting radius, being better than both the Evoque and the HX. The Bentayga's major downfall is its all-in top speed, being one of if not the lowest top speed out of the archetype. Coupled with a decreased top speed when mid-air, the Bentayga has no way to actually make up for lost time from its slow long nitro launches. As a result, the Bentayga will always be one of the slowest vehicles to use in the game.
No rank-up tools are needed for the Bentayga, meaning that it can be brought up to Level 50 with only its blueprints and class-S tools. Much like most class-S cars, there is no rank that the Bentayga is exceptional at. While it does have a higher than usual long nitro speed, the acceleration is enough to make the Bentayga easy prey for Monster Trucks at the start of multiplayer races. Even without knockdowns, the Bentayga will almost always be behind competent drivers with faster accelerating vehicles, making it an unrecommended choice for multiplayer.
Speed Modifier Approximation
* when using the Land Rover Defender as 100 % benchmark
The Bentley Bentayga has the worst speed modifier for an SUV, at 90.8%, what appears to be decent top speed is actually the lowest in the archetype, and actually has one of the slowest all-in top speeds in the game. Even with Extra Tank, the Bentayga is still very slow in top speed. Without Extra Tank, the all-in top speed is so low that all rally cars, even including the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X, as well as some buggies, have a higher top speed than it. Considering the other stats, the combination of a mediocre long nitro speed, a poor all-in speed, as well as being an SUV, means that the Bentayga will be slow, especially on Gobi.
In terms of time-limited events, Despite being the featured car of the GMC Vandura Championship, the warm-ups do not give any blueprints for the Bentayga. Even if the player had the Bentayga at max, better SUVs and most of the rally car archetype are far much better on Arctic Outpost than the Bentayga is, but the option to use the Bentayga is there.
The Bentley Bentayga is, like most S-class cars, a token sink that does not provide much value for the requirements for Level 50. It is highly unrecommended to max the Bentayga due to SUVs generally being a weak archetype, and the Bentley being one of the worst SUVs in the game.
