Bentley has now pulled the wraps off their flagship model SUV, which now features more cabin space than its luxury competitors. Dubbed the Bentayga EWB Mulliner, the car is designed and curated by the Mulliner team, which is the British manufacturer's bespoke and coachbuilding division. The Bentley Bentayga EWB Mulliner incorporates some unique design elements, both on the outside as well as the inside. Offered with a choice of 4+1 and 4-seat configurations, the flagship SUV is said to offer a mix of performance and comfort. Plus, the brand's 'airline seat' specification is available as standard with it, which is delineated by the manufacturer as the most advanced seat ever fitted to a car, with 22-way adjustments, an auto climate sensing system, and postural adjustment technology.
For enhanced comfort, the rear seat can even recline to 40 degrees, while the climate control and ventillation can be adjusted based on the user's body temperature. With the postural adjustment technology, the shape of the seat can be modified to ease pressure points around the body.
Bentley Bentayga EWB Mulliner: Interior
Inside, the Bentayga EWB Mulliner gets illuminated three-dimensional treadplates and deep-pile Mulliner overmats made up of wool. Besides, the cabin offers a choice of 8 curated three-colour combinations. The tri-tone design is a Mulliner signature element, which is exclusive to the brand's pinnacle models. On offer is also the Mulliner Harmony Diamond Quilt leather upholstery (as can be seen on the seats and door panels). Other bits include the Grand Black wood veneer trim, the 3-dimensional diamond milled finish on the centre console, silver Mulliner lettering, and the Bentayga silhouette.
The Bentley Diamond Illumination feature comes as standard with the SUV, which includes 12 LED lights on each of the front doors and 22 on each of the rear doors, while the centre console houses a Mulliner clock flanked by chrome bullseye air vents. The clock features a silvered face and a bezel.
Bentley Bentayga EWB Mulliner: Exterior
Exterior-wise, the Bentayga EWB Mulliner gets a set of Mulliner's 22-inch wheels as standard with self-levelling wheel caps, a Mulliner's Double Diamond front grille, and a chrome front lower grille which is accompanied by Mulliner wing vents and two-tone mirror caps finished in Satin Silver and body colour. Optional bits include Mulliner Blackline Specification, which is available in the form of the Gloss Black exterior chrome work, mirror caps, and 22-inch wheels, but with the exception of the Bentley badges.
Bentley Bentayga EWB Mulliner: Powertrain, Underpinnings
Underneath the bonnet, the EWB SUV by Mulliner is powered by the brand's 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine that cranks out 542bhp and 770Nm of peak torque. As a result, the SUV tops out at 290km/h. A sprint from 0 to 100km/h is possible in 4.6 seconds. Transmission duties are carried out by an 8-speed automatic unit.
The 7-inch longer Bentayga EWB is underpinned by rear-wheel steering, Bentley Dynamic Ride, and three-chamber air springs.
