2021 Bentley Bentayga Gets Refreshed Design, New Tech

Mid-cycle enhancements for the prestige brand’s posh SUV.


  • The 2021 Bentley Bentayga receives new styling reminiscent of the Continental GT and Flying Spur.

  • New infotainment system, new interior materials, more rear-seat legroom.

  • Twin-turbo V8 with 542 horsepower to appear first, followed by PHEV and Speed W12 engine variants.


The 2021 Bentley Bentayga is said to be the first model launched under the brand’s Beyond100 business plan, as the high-luxury SUV benefits from a new exterior design, revised interior trim, and an improved infotainment system.

The New Bentley Continental GT V8 Convertible Is Now Ready For You, Sir

Bentley recently announced that it has produced 20,000 units of the Bentayga so far, and for the 2021 model year, it will look more like the company’s newer products—the Bentley Continental GT and the Flying Spur—with revised front and rear styling. The front grille is larger and more upright, the bumper boasts a more aggressive appearance, and the detailed headlight clusters receive intelligent LED matrix technology. The brand also added heated windshield wipers that incorporate 22 washer fluid jets in each arm.

At the rear, the 2021 Bentley Bentayga sports a full-width tailgate—à la Audi—with oval-shaped taillights, along with redesigned bumper and exhaust outlets. The impression of wideness is enhanced by the repositioning of the license plate on the bumper, and by a 20-millimetre rear track increase. The new look is complemented by alloy wheel redesigns and two new paint colours: a dark green shade called Viridian, and an off-white tone called Patina.

The Bentayga’s cabin has been reworked as well, with a new central air vent design, a new steering wheel as well as changes to the door panels and seat upholstery. A rear-seat legroom gain of up to 100 mm has been achieved in the four-seat version, and in the five-passenger version, rear occupants can now enjoy seat ventilation. Dark tint diamond brushed aluminum trim is now available—a Bentley first—in addition to new veneers: Koa and Crown Cut Walnut. Those who choose the Mulliner Driving Specification also get quilted seat upholstery with micro piping.

The 2021 Bentley Bentayga receives a connectivity and infotainment overhaul as well, with a new 10.9-inch high-resolution touchscreen, revised navigation with satellite maps, Wireless Apple CarPlay (wired Android Auto integration too), USB-C ports, wireless phone charging, enhanced head-up display and an embedded SIM card. Owners can use remote services through a dedicated Apple iOS or Android app. Rear-seat occupants get a bigger touchscreen remote control tablet as well.

Under the hood, the new Bentayga conserves the twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 that develops 542 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque, good for 0-60 mph blasts of 4.4 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds) and a top speed of 180 mph (290 km/h). The plug-in hybrid powertrain will follow—consisting of a turbo V6 and an electric motor to produce a combined 443 hp—as will the Speed variant with the 626-hp twin-turbo W12 engine.

No on-sale date or pricing has been announced yet for the 2021 Bentley Bentayga.
