Along with Vince Lee, we travel to fabulous Vancouver to best drive this new model Bentayga EWB and to show off a rear cabin experience deserving of the Bentley name. The reality is the Bentley owner wants to experience luxury at home, on a G700, to travel on Delta-seat 1A, and on their daily ride. With effortless performance, inherent luxury, exquisite hand craftsmanship, and endless personalization possibilities their Bentayga EWB will surpass both their current standard for luxury and their greatest expectations.
With a first look, it’s hard to even notice this is the longer Bentayga thanks to the clever design team putting all the increased length in the rear door, creating an exceptionally large luxurious rear cabin area. Designed with an emphasis on wellness, this new model sees the introduction of the world’s first auto climate and advanced postural adjustment rear seat, guaranteed to foster extraordinary journeys. In addition, the rear is outfitted with Bentley’s Airline Seat specification. The most advanced seat ever fitted to a car, and many jets. This seat incorporates 22 ways of adjustment and it is equipped with a new auto climate sensing system and postural adjustment technology. To best experience this rear seat we had it in ‘Relax’ mode with our seat reclining at 40 degrees. Perfect comfort…magnified with the employ of the leather-trimmed footrest.
Adrian Hallmark, Chairman and Chief Executive of Bentley Motors, said it best “The Bentayga Extended Wheelbase is our first car truly dedicated to the onboard wellness of its occupants. Every Bentley gets you to your destination feeling more relaxed than when you started your journey, and yet with the Extended Wheelbase, we’ve been able to go even further thanks to the adoption of world-first wellness technology embedded within our unrivaled interior cabin design. In combination with the incredible skills of the craftspeople at our carbon-neutral factory in Crewe, these advances make the Bentayga Extended Wheelbase the ultimate luxury SUV to drive or be driven in.
The rear cabin of the Bentayga EWB sets a new benchmark for combining world-class luxury and technological innovation, demonstrating new heights of craftsmanship and comfort, also for the first time on a Bentley there are power closing doors. The panoramic sunroof illuminates the fine, and numerous details while enhancing the roominess of the spacious loft-like rear cabin.
This Bentayga EWB is proof that bigger is better. Even with its heft, the driving dynamics are pure Bentayga – new with rear-wheel steering and Bentley Dynamic Ride as standard.
Two specifications of Bentayga’s Extended Wheelbase are available now. Our test model in Azure gave us elegant and timeless design with unique signatures, focusing on maximum comfort and well-being, it also featured a unique 22″ ten-spoke directional wheel, bright lower bumper grilles, Azure embroidery, and badging. Other additional features include unique quilted seats, mood lighting, a heated steering wheel, and increased driver’s assistance aids. The First Edition specification builds further, including Bentley Diamond Illumination, metal overlays in the veneer, Naim for Bentley Premium Audio, and LED welcome lamps. Unique embroidery, inlays, and badging identify this as a highly exclusive and distinct model. The Bentayga EWB also brings the first application of Bentley Diamond Illumination that delivers cabin lighting.
