Bentley Bentayga diesel: The Knowledge

Ahead of its first ever diesel model, Bentley explains some of the technology under the bonnet of the Bentayga diesel luxury SUV

 

Bentley Motors has announced the full details of the first diesel model in the brand’s history – the Bentayga Diesel.

At the heart of Bentley's luxury diesel SUV is an all-new, triple-charged, 4.0-litre, 32-valve V8 engine. Variable-geometry, sequential twin-scroll turbochargers are powered by the exhaust gases, while a third electric supercharger – powered by the VW Group's 48V system – spools up within 30 microseconds to eliminate turbo lag. 

Developing 435PS (429 bhp) and 900Nm (664 lb. ft.) of torque, the Bentayga Diesel hits a top speed of 168 mph and can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds.

The new model has also been made with a number of specific developments to provide what Bentley refers to as 'peerless refinement'. For example, the bespoke exhaust system has been acoustically engineered to be as quiet and refined as possible.

The addition of Selective Catalytic Reduction contributes to lower nitrous oxides. Combined with Bentley’s stop-start system; class-leading CO2 emissions of 210 g/km.

Peak torque is available from very early in the rev range (just 1,000 rpm), whilst new 'clean technology' gives the Bentayga Diesel the lowest CO2 emissions of any Bentley, as well as a range of over 1,000 km (621 miles). Bentley states that this will allow owners to 'drive from London to Verbier, Bordeaux or the Scottish Highlands on a single tank'.

"The Bentayga Diesel represents a moment of immense significance in Bentley’s history, by giving the world its fastest luxury diesel SUV. Immense power, grand touring capabilities and superb refinement – this is a true Bentley," explained Wolfgang Dürheimer, chairman and chief executive of Bentley Motors.
