Bentley Bentayga review – the ultimate luxury SUV? - Performance and 0-60
Bentley's first SUV is sure to be a sales hit, but its sheer weight limits the appeal as a drivers SUV
Performance and 0-60 time
Four seconds. That’s a 0-60 time you might think belongs to a low-slung sports car, or perhaps an entry-level supercar. But to apply it to a car weighing well over two tonnes seems impossible. Yet thanks to its 12 cylinders and duo of twin scroll turbos, the 6.0-litre W12 model will leave a Porsche 718 Cayman or Audi RS3 trailing in its not inconsiderable wake.
It’s then capable of going on to a frankly ridiculous 187mph top speed, which is pretty pace for a car that shares it footprint and kerbweight with the average two-bedroom cottage. Plump for the diesel model and you’ll have the honour of driving one of the fastest oil-burners around. 4.0-litres of V8 – the same block as you’ll find in the Audi SQ7 – makes 429bhp and a truly colossal 664lb ft of torque. 0-60mph takes 4.6 seconds, while top speed is 168mph.
