Bentley Bentayga Speed 2019: Big, strong & powerful luxury model

One thing is obviously constant about Bentley, which is change. Bentley Bentayga lovers across the globe had the opportunity to pick between the V8 diesel engine and the W12 standard with the earlier model. This choice is no more now as those variants are now replaced by the Bentayga speed. There is also the availability of the hybrid version of the Bentayga, coming for the very first time with a V6 engine. This is a feat that has never happened in the company’s 60 years of history without forgetting the 6-cylinder as well.

The Bentley Bentayga Speed seems like a perfect replacement to the earlier W12 Bentayga that fazed out of production quietly last year but it is more of an addition to a range that has been in the automotive market.

The 2019 Bentley Bentayga Speed model comes with an astonishing look for a luxury car

With honed chassis tune and an increase in the generative output from 603 horsepower to 626 horsepower. New features in this new Speed model include new Sport mode setting, firmer suspension, 48V creative active roll control system and optional ceramic brakes.

From look, you wouldn’t but notice the tail spoiler at first glance, bringing strong personality but comes at a price especially for those on the hunt for beautiful and strong cars. You get body coloured side skirts, smoked headlights, bespoke and massive 22-inch rims, Speed badging and darkened grille. On the inside, it has suede delight with many qualities of Alcantara put inside, which might look fetish to some. The good news is, the automaker is ready to meet and customize your taste and preference for no charge.

The Speed model remains Bentley distinctive cabin decoration

It promises similar engine with non-Speed GT Continental everyday engine and plenty of torque to corroborate that. With its 12-cylinder engine, it beats all odds and forms a good partnership with the ZF gearbox equipped wth it.

Bentley is ready to listen and make your own cabin design despite its lavishly finished interior

The fact that there are changes with the suspension is a welcome idea too. No harm has been done to the peachy drive quality accustomed with Bentayga through its firmer suspension setting. It offer more body control and comes with an engineered sporting feel, which strongly speaks well about the legacy of Bentley and the model itself. Though it is not a sport car and also claims not to be but it offers way better than what you would expect from a car of its class.
