Bentley Bentayga review

£133,100 - £203,080
Published: 17 Jan 2023


What should I be paying?

The Bentayga isn’t cheap to buy, nor cheap to run: Bentley claims 21.7mpg and 294g/km of CO2 emissions for the V8. You might get 20mpg from the V8. You won’t from the W12. But of more relevance will be its near 400 miles of range on a tank. It’s so comfy inside, it’ll only be pitiful human needs for toilets or snacks that’ll prevent your own distance between stops being the same.

The Hybrid claims an entirely theoretical 83.1mpg, 82g/km and a 431-mile cruising range. In practice it’s a little more efficient than the V8 on a long run, but not that much. Expect 23-24mpg. It’ll cost you less to tax than a normal Bentayga (as if you care about tax…), but you’ll need to keep the battery topped-up to get the most out of it. Bentley tells us most owners do.

The V8 and Hybrid Bentaygas cost exactly the same to buy – £162,500 before options. And there are MANY options – the superb Naim stereo costs just under £7,000, and the ‘Touring Specification’ pack that gives you adaptive cruise control, lane assist, a head-up display, night vision and a couple of other bits is £6,480.

The bigger question surrounds residuals. The awkward looking first gen Bentaygas can be picked up for around £75,000 now, but we expect the second generation cars to hold their value better.
