Bentley Bentayga facelift snapped

Published: 15 October 2019

► Next Bentayga snapped testing
► Expect a Flying Spur-style front end
► No interior pics yet

The fresh-looking Bentley Flying Spur is just around the corner, and now Crewe is busy putting the finishing touches to another model: the Bentayga. Our spy photographers have snapped what must be the facelift of the new SUV testing, and the amount of camo on show suggests some substantial styling changes.

Although covered in camo, we can see the front-end of the next Bentayga borrows the same look as the Flying Spur: the grille, light-signature and grille all look pretty much the same as Crewe’s new four-door.

At the rear, it’s harder to determine what Bentley is up to, but we could get slimmer lights.

As for engines? Expect the same line-up as the recently announced Flying Spur.

And inside?

We don’t have any pictures of the new car’s interior right now, but it’s a crucial area for the new car. When we drove the Bentayga Hybrid just a few months ago, and felt its interior was severely dated compared to the competition, and certainly not in keeping with the car’s substantial asking price. We’re hoping Crewe will be grabbing the freshest components from the VW Group shelves for the next car.
