2021 Bentley Bentayga S: Sportier V8 isn’t any faster

The 2021 Bentley Bentayga S is the sportiest member of the SUV family, but it doesn’t have any more power than the regular V8.

Under the hood there’s a 4L twin-turbo V8 with 404kW (542hp) and 770Nm (568 lb-ft). The Bentayga S has a 0-100km/h time of 4.5s or 0-60mph in 4.4s. Its top speed is 290km/h (180mph).

There’s a standard 48V Dynamic Ride anti roll system, a retuned Sport mode with a 15% stiffer suspension damping, and revised torque vectoring.

Also standard are 22-inch wheels, blacked out accents, tinted headlights and taillights, a larger rear spoiler, and more color accents for the interior. The Bentayga S is available as 4, 5 or 7 seater.
