Bentley Bentayga SUV Coming Early Next Year
The Bentley Bentayga SUV with an all-new 600 horsepower 12-cylinder engine that uses both direct and indirect fuel injection delivering a 0-60 mph time of 4.0 seconds and a top speed of 187 mph will start being delivered in early 2016.
Features include a full-length panoramic sunroof, up to eight modes of Drive Dynamics for any surface or road condition, Bentley Dynamic Ride (electrically activated 48V active roll control) and Electric Power-Assisted Steering, Adaptive Cruise Control including Stop & Go, predictive ACC and Traffic Assist that enables the driver to maintain a set distance to the vehicle in front. Traffic Sign Recognition detects a wide variety of traffic signs and displays information to the driver. Rear Crossing Traffic Warning uses radar technology to detect crossing traffic when reversing out of a parking space. Top View uses four cameras to display an overall picture of the vehicle’s surroundings. Park Assist detects suitable parking spaces (both parallel and perpendicular) before autonomous steering takes over to support parking manoeuvres, even in narrow and tricky spaces.
Electronic Night Vision uses infra-red technology identifies potential obstacles ahead, and a Head-Up Display reduces driver distraction and increases safety.
