The Bentley Bentayga Belgian Equestrian Collection is a new special edition built for Belgium. Bentley first launched this collection in Munich on July 2022, and it was created as a tribute to professional show jumping.
The Bently Bentayga Belgian Equestrian was developed in cooperation between Bentley’s Belgian merchants, the Mulliner customization sector, Stephex, horse transportation, and a stable denomination. It was generally noted that Only 10 of these would be made, and so far Bentley’s customization division has finalized a ten-car compilation of bespoke Bentaygas.
This first collaboration between the Belgian retail and Mulliner to co-create a luxury SUV that offers the ultimate in strength, extravagance, and usability has led to designing many exterior features to boost the performance and sportiness of the Bentayga.
Features include carbon fiber styling furnishings, sports exhaust, and ten numbered spoke 22-inch wheels colored in black. The vehicle’s back pillars are also decorated with a special logo that can be seen throughout the interior, including a finishing Burnt Oak with Mandarin stitching and piping. There are also Herringbone Sand Tweed plops in the door cards and a specially crafted ‘Belgian Equestrian Collection’ covering in front of the passenger seating with a metal overlay.
An extensive wheelbase body style has also been added to the Bentayga lineup for the 2023 version. The protracted body enables extra space in the rear seat so passengers can stretch out and feel more comfortable. This model comes with a rear-wheel steering strategy, which allows shrinking the car’s swerving radius.
Although quite expensive, a Standard automatic emergency brake system with pedestrian detection is also available, a lane-departure warning system with lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and a night-vision aid system
The Bently Bentayga Belgian Equestrian was built With the new 7 Seat Specification market. With 4-passenger, 5-passenger, and 7-passenger modification layouts available, buyers can decide on the perfect interior layout according to their tastes and preferences. The Bentley Bentayga has become one of the most versatile and customizable extravagant SUVs available in the entire car market.
The actual Bently standard seating format is the 4+1 layout, where its two outermost rear seats have a plus one middle seat that holds one more person. The seats also have a 16-way power adjustment, heat, ventilation, and five different massage settings.
Aside from the rear seats being able to recline up to 40 degrees, there’s also a footrest that spans from behind the front passenger seat so that the right rear is where the rider can raise their feet. This car is also adorned with rich-smelling leathers, natural wood trim, and flashy metal accents,
There are also different available leather upholstery colors, two different mother-of-pearl dash clocks, bottle coolers for rear-seat passengers, adjustable ambient interior lighting, and even a
safe with a biometric lock and fingerprint reader. The Bentayga’s cargo space is also very decent, and at least one can fit nine carry-on suitcases back there.
The elective entertainment system has two 10.2-inch display screens hoisted on the front-seat headrests. With this made available, rear-seat passengers can scan the web, interact with Bentayga’s infotainment network and play movies. Bentayga versions also come with a standard 10.9-inch information and entertainment screen with a navigation system, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto integration. A standard 12-speaker stereo is usually provided, but you can also opt for the Naim’s 20-speaker premium audio system.
The Bently Bentayga is characterized by a range of rare exterior features. It comprises the new modern unique 22″ wheels with three finishes, ingenious ‘S’ badges positioned on the downward edge of the front doors, and Blackline Specification as its precept. The form has a heightened presence because of the bigger rear spoiler, veneer black side sills, and lower bumpers for both the front and rear.
There are no new Diamond Illumination detail with 22 LEDs behind the soft trim on the rear doors and 12 on each front door. The LED lights glint through tiny openings in the leather trim, which creates a super-cool effect at night, bringing about its remarkable exterior.
There are also power rear doors with switches on the center consoles to close the doors, motors that assist while opening the doors, dark tint lenses, headlamps, tail lamps, black door mirrors, and black split oval-shaped tailpipes.
Engine Power and Performance
Bentley proposed a variation or diversity of powertrains for the Bentayga. There is a 443-horsepower hybrid configuration at the lower end alongside a 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6 and an electric-powered motor. There is also a 542-horsepower twin-turbo V-8 engine type available. We haven’t driven the former, which amazingly emits up to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds. The Bently Bentayga Speed overtakes the norm with 626-hp W-12. The W-12’s energy delivery is sleeker than the V-8’s, and its performance is usually more robust during more complex maneuvers. Bentley has clearly stated that the Bentayga Speed, of about 190 mph, is the fastest available SUV in the car market (one of their rivals, the Lamborghini Urus, might have something to say about that). Regardless of its competition and rivalry, all Bentaygas possess an eight-speed automatic transmission and appear standard with all-wheel drive.
The V-8-powered engine has ratings of 14 mpg city, 23 mpg highway, and 17 mpg combined, which aren’t bad for a large SUV. As the 12s version is estimated at 12 mpg city, 17 mpg highway, and 14 mpg combined, and On the 75-mph highway fuel economy route, the 12-cylinder Bentayga amazingly delivers a 23-mpg result.
The least-expensive Bently Bentayga range is about $167,000. A brand new Bently Bentayga cost starts at 193,400- 259,400 US dollars.
The Bentley Bentayga is generally a huge deal for the British luxury brand, and being the first SUV that the brand built at that volume, it instantly became the bestseller in the lineup. In a world filled with varieties of SUVs, it can be almost impossible to stand out. However, the Bentayga has managed to make an announcement where ever it goes.
Exclusivity, reputation, and the ability to flaunt unique features at any time are what the Bentayga brand is all about. So, even in an era where the SUV is everywhere, the Bentayga stands out. There might be better-equipped and even less expensive luxury cars, but almost nothing competes with the Bentley Bentayga.
