The refreshed Bentley Bentayga will debut on June 30 at 12:00 p.m. EDT (4:00 p.m. GMT). To tease the unveiling, the British brand has a video showing some details of the updated SUV but without giving a good overview.
The clip focuses on circular parts of Bentayga’s refreshed design. It shows things like the speedometer, clock, steering wheel, stereo speaker grille, on / off button, wheel and headlight. Unfortunately, none of this really gives an idea of what’s new in the luxury crossover.
A recent leak (below) offered a much better look at the updated Bentayga. The revised headlights have more of an oval shape than current circular lamps. A new lower fascia has three separate sections, including larger entrances in the corners with a trapezoidal shape for the fog lamp housings.
There’s also a photo of the interior, and the biggest change seems to be a bigger infotainment screen. There are rectangular HVAC vents above. An additional row of controls appears to be on the center stack. Although the photo shows the four-seater, buyers could still get five- and seven-passenger versions.
Powertrain modifications for the revised Bentayga are still a mystery, but Bentley confirms that the plug-in hybrid would still be in the lineup. Expect the W12 and V8 to stay in the lineup. Adjustments to improve performance and efficiency are possible.
Since its introduction in 2016, the Bentayga has been a huge success for Bentley. The company delivered more than 20,000 during this period, an average of 13.7 of them per day. For a vehicle that starts at around $ 170,000 and can cost much more, the sales volume is impressive.

The Bentayga set the benchmark for luxury SUVs in 2016, offering customers the ultimate Grand Touring experience with no restrictions on scenery or conditions.
