The successful Bentley Bentayga luxury SUV arrived in 2015, underwent an update, and now it’s time for an all-new body version designed for those who want to use their SUV with a chauffeur while in the back seat.
The new model, called the EWB Extended Wheelbase, is extended 180 mm between the axles. All the extra space for the rear passengers.
Initially, it will be available exclusively with a four-liter, eight-cylinder petrol engine with two turbochargers, developing 550 hp and a maximum torque of 770 Nm. Automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are considered normal.
EWB also introduces a new rear-wheel drive system that reduces turning radius and improves stability at higher speeds, a feature Bentley debuted in the Flying Spur sedan in 2019 and most recently in the Continental GT. Despite the extra length, the 11.8m turning diameter is actually 0.6m smaller than the standard wheelbase model.
From the outside, of course, you can recognize the new version by the taller rear doors, but also by the radiator grille with vertical slats. But the most important thing happens inside.
Customers can choose from three rear design options: a luxury two-seater, a classic three-seater and a double-set called “4 + 1”, which has a small seat between two chairs with larger armrests.
The EWB seat will also offer a new type of climate seat that senses the occupant’s body temperature and surface humidity and modulates ambient temperature and airflow for comfort. It can also check pressure points in the passenger seat and make “micro-adjustments” to maximize comfort.
There are a number of new trim options: a new, advanced type of diamond stitching, a perforated door pattern that is illuminated in the rear with LEDs and a separate ionization system for the extended rear space.
