The Bentley Bentayga Hybrid family has some new additions, the Bentley Bentayga Hybrid Sport and the Bentley Bentayga Hybrid Azure. After the Bentayga Hybrid release in 2018, Bentley has once again brought cutting-edge technology and forward-thinking innovation into their latest releases.
Joining the family fold, the Sport and Azure models complement the Bentley Bentayga Hybrid, launched in 2018 as the world’s first luxury hybrid. With discreet badging and still containing the powerful V6 engine that we expect from Bentley, the new Sport and Azure models promise to add depth and improved driveability to the range.
THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE BENTAYGA HYBRID SPORT AND AZURE
• New battery capacity with improved range of 27 miles on electric power alone.
• 15% more torque, now at 400Nm electric-only
• The hybrid powertrain offers dual character options of serenity to exhilaration.
• The Sport model now has a stiffer chassis combined with a more dynamic SPORT mode.
• The Azure model focuses on comfort and wellness, utilizing technology to provide a smoother driving experience.
• Both models offer the V6 petrol engine, electric motor, and 18kWh battery.
THE BENTLEY BENTAYGA HYBRID SPORT MODEL
Following on from the massive success of the Flying Spur S Hybrid which was released earlier this year, Bentley saw the potential of combining the Bentayga Hybrid with a Sports model to create a vehicle that offered sporting performance, dramatic design and yet still retained the ecological credentials of the electrified powertrain.
A 3.0-litre TFSI V6 petrol engine and 100 kW electric motor-generator powers the Bentayga Sport Model from 0 to 62 miles an hour (100 km/h) in just 5.3 seconds and tops out at 158 mph (254 km/h). This immense level of power is paired with sound enhancements from the engine bay (in addition to the roar of the V6 engine), a stiffened chassis (a 15% increase in damping) and the unique Bentley S model Hybrid Sports Exhaust.
Focusing on the power and agility of the driving experience, the Bentley Bentayga Hybrid Sport model hits all the aesthetic marks you could also ask for. The black polished metal on all bright exterior ware, the black side sills and dark-tint headlamps all scream speed-style.
THE BENTLEY BENTAYGA HYBRID AZURE MODEL
While performance is a high priority for the Bentley Bentayga Hybrid Azure, comfort and well-being play a more significant part in the design of this model. The roar of the 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine is muted in the tranquillity of the isolated cabin and creates a quiet, calming atmosphere. Adding to this relaxing experience are front seats that offer 22-way adjustments for maximum comfort and a heating system that optimizes the ideal temperature for comfort while considering alertness.
Adaptive cruise control further enhances relaxation by adding a layer of safety. This system assists the driver by maintaining a safe distance from the car ahead and adjusting the speed accordingly. Extra features, like lane assist, traffic assist, and Bentley Safeguard, are also available on the Azure model (subject to regional availability).
Inside the Bentayga Hybrid Azure, you will find the elegant, quilted upholstery, wood veneers (available in dark walnut, crown-cut walnut, and Koa), and a range of interior lighting stylings, including mood lighting in the cabin. Externally the Azure model features chrome accents such as lower grilles and Azure badging.
True to Bentley’s consistently superior standards, the new Bentley Bentayga Hybrid Azure and Bentley Bentayga Hybrid Sport combine craftsmanship, expert engineering and ultimate luxury, which you can feel in the everyday driving experience of these magnificent vehicles.
