2022 Bentley Bentayga S review

The 2022 Bentley Bentayga S appears as the classy middle child in the Bentayga lineup. It has the same more aggressive exterior stylings as the full-on Bentayga Speed W12, but it also comes with the V8 engine found in an ordinary Bentayga.

But, it is also equipped with an updated Sport mode that complements its more rigid air suspension. Here’s a short but comprehensive description of the all-new 2022 Bentley Bentayga S Review.

2022 Bentley Bentayga S Review

2022 Bentley Bentayga S: What’s New?

Its 2022 Bentley Bentayga S is a brand-new model positioned beneath its predecessor, the Bentayga Speed; however, it offers more personality than the current Hybrid and V8 models. The concept for that S version is to show the majesty of the Speed but with the same powerful engine.

But with improved handling and styling options. This is why it comes with the darkened exterior styling, such as the smoked chrome, the tinted taillights, and headlights, along with the mirror cap is blackened.

It also has a black applique on the side sills, as well as 2022 Bentley Bentayga S also has black designs, side sills, lower bumpers, and dark oval tailpipes that split in two.

The latter is a good example. It is worth noting that the Bentayga S has a new sports exhaust system, which is primary and secondary pipes that flow freely that produce a powerful growl that amplifies when you press the pedal.

The 2022 edition of Bentayga S is custom 22-inch Scythe wheels available in gloss black, silver, or a shiny polished finish. Bentley states that the polished and black wheel can be described as “highly labor-intensive” as each is polished by hand.

2022 Bentley Bentayga S Changes

Exterior Design

The Bentayga V8 S is given several cosmetic improvements over the basic version. Darker accents, smoke-stained taillights and headlights, larger rear spoilers, and distinct exhaust tips. Even though the Bentayga is a source of contention, its design as a whole is pleasant. I like the Audi Q8’s more affordable design.

Bentley modified the brake-based torque-vectoring technique used in the Bentayga to be more responsive to inputs. In the end, an easier, more agile automobile-like SUV is created. You’d not even know that you were in the 5,000-plus pounds of leather-clad monster because of the way it handles the curving roads.

Interior Design

The Bentayga is distinct from Maybach GLS600 and Rolls-Royce Cullinan because of its focus on sportiness. Don’t get me wrong, they’re quick, but they’re not made to be off-road vehicles.

An even more intense driving experience plus twice as ugly is available inside Lamborghini Urus. Lamborghini Urus. A gentleman boxer for the lamb’s cage fighter. It’s likely to get difficult, yet it will be courteous.

With the $6-figure price tag, I’m shocked that the Bentayga does not come with a greater variety of driving aids that are standard.

Automatic emergency brake and pedestrian recognition are available for free. For $8,640, the Touring Specs pack unlocks additional features such as cruise control, lane-keeping assistance, and a head-up display. Why am I required to spend so much money on a Bentley?

At the very minimum, the interior, covered in leather and Alcantara, appears to be the price of a million dollars. While listening to music via the additional 20 speakers of the Naim audio system, massagers on the seat soothe my sore muscles. Heaven has come to me.

The two-tone Porpoise and Imperial Blue are the colors of my Bentayga and have contrast stitching all over. An option of $10,000 The diamond-brushed design of the aluminum dash is beautiful to me.

Doesn’t the expression, “Go big or go home” true? In addition to a massage, the seats in front were warmed up as well as the carpet was extremely smooth and comfortable. It’s deliciously delicious.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included as standard features of the car’s 10.9-inch touchscreen system for multimedia. The system is slow from time to moment, but it generally performs well and is an upgraded version of the tech Audi uses in sure of its automobiles.

With a tablet connected to the internet that backseat passengers can use, they can control the temperature, blinds, the lighting, and even their seat cooling and heating systems.

In addition, it displays information on the location of the car and Speed, including the current Speed and distance it’s covered. In addition, two 10.1-inch tablet devices can display entertainment via HDMI and a USB connection and streaming Netflix content.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance of 2022 Bentley Bentayga S

The 2022 Bentley Bentayga S has 443-hp hybrid powertrain is on hiatus for 2022’s model year, and the twin-turbo V-8 that produces 542-hp will be the entry-level motor. Its successor, the Bentayga Speed, increases the power with a 626-hp engine that is a W-12.

In 2017 Speed was able to produce 600 ponies. The super-smooth engine produced a 3.6-second performance during our test at 60 mph. The powertrain of the W-12 is smoother than that of the V-8’s and its performance seemed more robust in driving moves.

Bentley states they claim that their Bentayga Speed, with a claimed maximum speed of 190 miles per hour, is the fastest automobile in the world (although there’s a chance that Lamborghini Urus could have something to say about it).

No matter what’s underneath, most Bentaygas use an eight-speed automated transmission and come having all-wheel drive.

Bentayga S is an excellent option if you can afford it. It blends the finest attributes of the Bentley SUV, with some performance rendering it the Speed obsolete. It’s impossible to go wrong with it.
