When you see the New Bentayga Azure heading towards you, the first thing that will strike you is the elegant detailing on the front of the car. Almost everything is rendered in a polished chrome finish, including both the main grille and the matching lower bumper grilles. The exclusive 22” wheels are every bit as eye-catching, with a stunning 10-spoke design available in a choice of three different finishes. From the Azure badging to the jewelled oil and fuel filler caps, the attention to detail is astonishing.
Although the length of the wheelbase has been extended by 180mm, the car’s proportions remain perfect. The extra space is focused on the rear cabin, so from the outside, you will notice a subtle extension to the rear door and roofline. Step inside, however, and it transforms the interior space, offering far more legroom for passengers in the rear cabin.
Illuminated Azure treadplates greet you as you get in. Electric rear doors that close softly make it easy for anyone to get in and out with your hands full. And once inside, you will experience the combination of space, light and luxurious features that makes the Azure so special. Bentley Diamond Illumination, for example, allows light to flow through the leather trim itself, to stunning effect. Azure badging can be seen on the fascia and Azure embroidery on the seats. An exclusive new quilting pattern has been designed to emphasise the sense of space. From the two-tone heated steering wheel to the Deep Pile Overmats at your feet, everything comes together to boost the comfort and wellbeing of all occupants.
The New Bentayga EWB Azure is incredibly easy to drive. A 4.0 litre V8 petrol engine produces 550 PS and 770 Nm of torque – enough power to deliver the smooth, surging acceleration you expect from Bentley. It can take you from 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds) – unbelievable performance for a vehicle of this size.
What really sets it apart, however, is the refinement of the ride, whatever the driving situation. In part, this is because of the Bentley Dynamic Ride system, an electrically powered anti-roll system that prevents the cabin from rolling to the left or right when cornering at speed, but without compromising the softness of the ride during normal driving. And with All-Wheel Steering included as standard, you can manoeuvre it effortlessly, even in tight city streets.
The Bentley Airline Seat Specification introduces a truly unique set of features for rear-seat comfort. The seats recline, with a footrest deploying from the seat in front automatically as they do so. And the front passenger seat can be folded forward if unoccupied, giving the person sitting behind it even more space. But the extra space is only the beginning. Both of the rear seats are equipped with Seat Auto Climate – a world-first technology featuring sensors that enable the seat surfaces to maintain pre-set temperature and humidity levels, cooling or warming as required. In another world first, Bentley’s unique Postural Adjust feature uses air cushions beneath the seat surface to make tiny adjustments in sequences of up to three hours. This stimulates muscles and blood flow, reducing the fatigue and stiffness that can set in on long journeys.
In the front, the driver and passenger benefit from Bentley’s Front Seat Comfort Specification, which adds heating, ventilation and massage functions, plus comfort headrests and 20-way electrical seat adjustment. It’s all part of a suite of technology designed to maximise wellbeing, which also includes mood lighting and air ionisers to purify the air throughout your journey.
When it comes to infotainment, you can opt to upgrade to the Naim for Bentley sound system, offering unrivalled sound quality. There is also the optional Bentley Rear Entertainment system, which lets passengers in the rear stream content from their smartphones directly to the 10.1” screens mounted on the backs of the front seats. They can listen to the audio through the earphones provided, through their own equipment or even through the speakers of the audio system.
For the driver, the Touring Specification makes long trips easier than ever. It includes adaptive cruise control, so you can take your feet off the pedals during highway driving, even if traffic slows to a crawl or a standstill, plus lane detection to correct any drift across the highway. A head-up display shows you vital information, while a night vision camera gives you vital assistance whenever road lighting is lacking.
As well as support for Apple CarPlay* and Android Auto**, My Bentley connected services include a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot and the My Bentley app, for connecting to your car remotely. It can help you locate the spot where you parked, for example – and even notify you if your car is moved without your consent.

Any Bentley bearing the Azure name comes with a generous standard specification. But there will always be additions or personal choices you wish to make. It starts with the exterior colour. There are 16 to choose from as standard, however if you also consider Bentley’s extended range, plus the Mulliner range of premium finishes, your choice rises to around 60 colours.
Stunning as the standard 22” wheels are, there are alternatives, including a 5-spoke design at the same size and a 21” option. Inside, you can choose from Bentley’s entire colour range for the leather upholstery, including single-colour schemes and two-tone options. Contrast stitching, piping and even hand cross-stitching can also be applied, for extra depth and definition.
You can choose from Bentley’s full range of veneers, which now includes contemporary open-pore wood finishes, which use less lacquer. There are also more traditional high-gloss woods, which you can adorn further with the addition of metal overlays. Lastly, there are more technical options, such as Carbon Fibre, Piano Linen by Mulliner or Dark Tint Diamond Brushed Aluminium.
