The Glamorous Bentley Bentayga Glides to the Top of Bentley Sales

Record SUV sales continue to reshape the international automotive market. With one-third of European auto sales going to SUVs by the year 2020, automakers are being forced to reevaluate their sports utility line-ups to keep up with the stiff competition.

Of course, at Perillo Downers Grove, we know who that “stiff competition” is. Ahead of the pack, as always, is Bentley, this time with their impressive luxury SUV, the Bentley Bentayga. The Bentayga now sits comfortably at the top of Bentley sales across the globe.

The first Bentley production SUV was the Bentley EXP 9 F, unveiled as a concept in 2012 at the Geneva Auto Show. The modern Bentley Bentayga was developed from the EXP 9 F for a more powerful driving experience and more attractive aesthetic; it started production at the Bentley factory in Crewe, England in 2016.

The success of the Bentley Bentayga is based in more than just the SUV “trend.” The Bentayga provides drivers with ultra-luxury behind the wheel, something that its competition in the segment cannot.

To list all the innovations and artful features of the Bentayga would be impossible, but we’ll highlight a few:

  • The Bentayga is the fastest SUV on the market, accelerating from 0 to 60 in just 4.0 seconds.
  • The Bentayga offers full customization from the premium personalization specialists at Mulliner.
  • The Bentayga has the highest engine output of any diesel SUV in production.

Given the healthy SUV market and these marvelous features, the Bentayga’s position at the top of Bentley sales comes as no surprise.
