The Bentayga is an incredible new SUV for a whole host of different reasons.

For starters it’s every bit as good to drive as it is merely to sit in. We need to wait until we drive it on more familiar UK roads before passing a final judgement on its ultimate capabilities, preferably alongside its key rivals from Germany and the United Kingdom.

But for the time being, be in no doubt; Bentley has moved the SUV game to a different part of the pitch with the Bentayga.

Is it the best in the business? For the time being it’s a very strong maybe.

Steve Sutcliffe drives what Bentley claims is the “fastest, most luxurious and most exclusive SUV in the world.”
