The new Bentley Bentayga V8 2019-2020, equipped with a petrol 4.0-liter 550-strong bi-turbo eight, is officially presented and will appear in Russia in March 2019. A new premium crossover Bentley Bentaygah with an eight-cylinder petrol engine, like the German crossover Porsche Cayenne Turbo , and offered as an option carbon- ceramic brakes, like the Italian crossover Lamborghini Urus , is claimed by the British manufacturer as an “average” version of the Bentayga family, and will be located between the Bentley Bentayga Diesel and Bentley Bentayga W12 . In our review, the new Bentley Bentayga V8 2019-2020 – photos and videos, the price and specifications, the technical characteristics of the smart new premium SUV.
According to preliminary information, the price of the new Bentley Bentaiige V8 in the UK will be from 136,200 pounds sterling (about 10.5 million rubles). By the way, the cost of Bentley Bentayga Diesel in Britain starts at 135,800 pounds, and the flagship Bentley Bentayga W12 is estimated at a minimum of 16,200 pounds sterling. Thus, we can easily predict that the price of the Bentley Bentayga V8 for Russia will be 12.5-13 million rubles.
Based on the Volkswagen MLB-Evo platform, the “average” gasoline version of the Bentley Bentayg is directly related to the mass of premium crossovers: the New Audi Q7 , the Porsche Cayenne Turbo and the Lamborghini Urus are the brothers of the chic British SUV. It’s a pity that a solid and rather large British crossover got a petrol eight-cylinder 550-horsepower engine from the German model Porsche Cayenne Turbo, and not from the Italian crossover Lamborghini Urus with an impressive capacity of 650 forces.
Technical characteristics of the Bentley Bentayga V8 2019-2020.
In the engine compartment there is a 4.0-liter biturbo-watch (550 hp 770 Nm) per pair with 8 ZF automatic transmissions. There is, of course, a four-wheel drive with an asymmetrical self-locking differential (the standard traction between the front and rear wheels is divided by a ratio of 40% to 60%, but if necessary, Torsen is able to transfer the rear wheels up to 85% of the engine’s thrust, or up to 65% send to the front axle) .
The 550 horsepower engine is not as powerful as the Urus crossover (650 HP 850 Nm), but it can provide a heavy British crossover with a body weight of 2395 kg with dynamic and high-speed characteristics like a sports car: from 0 to 100 km for 4.5 seconds, the maximum speed of 290 km / h. The fuel consumption is stated from 11,4 liters in the mixed mode of motion up to 16 liters in city traffic.
Interestingly, the more expensive flagship Bentley Bentayga with a 608-horsepower W12 accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h, only 0.4 seconds faster (4.1 seconds), and the maximum is 11 km (301 km / h) higher. The question is, why pay more?
German brother Porsche Cayenne Turbo with an identical engine, but less than 300 kg body weight, accelerates to the first hundred for 4.1 seconds (optional package Sport Chrono helps accelerate in 3.9 seconds), and the maximum speed is 286 km / h.
The Italian relative of the Lamborghini Urus with a more powerful 650-horsepower engine and a smaller body weight of 2,200 kg fires from 0 to 100 kmh in just 3.6 seconds, with a top speed of 305 km / h.
Now if the new Bentley Bentayga V8 were supplied with a motor from Lamborghini Urus … however, the British crossover still got something from the Italian brother. As an option for Bentaiige with V8, carbon-ceramic brakes are offered, one-on-one like the Lamborghini Urus (fitted standard) with front brake discs 440 mm in diameter with 10 piston mechanisms and 370 mm rear wheels and 6 piston mechanisms. Also from technical innovations it is possible to note electric power steering with variable gear ratio.
A long time to talk about the appearance of the new Bentley Bentley V8 makes no sense. Crossover with a gasoline engine is almost indistinguishable from the diesel Bentley Bentayga, except that there are no Diesel shildles on the front doors.
Bentley’s average-priced version of the crossover Bentley is available to order with 4, 5 and 7-seat salons, a huge selection of materials and color solutions for interior decoration (even decorative carbon fiber inserts, Cricket Ball leather and red stitching). There are 3 variants of audio systems, alloy wheels R20, R21 or R22, and optional All-Terrain off-road package, projection display, parking assistant, night vision camera and other chips.
