Review: Bentley Bentayga Diesel

We are 1,000rpm away from an electric car”, beamed Wolfgang Durheimer, Chairman and CEO of Bentley, as he launched the latest version of the Bentayga SUV this week in Marbella. No, it’s not a plug-in hybrid model (that will arrive in due course); it’s Bentley’s very first diesel-powered car, the Bentayga Diesel. With maximum torque at not much above tick-over (1,000rpm), this V8 diesel engine, also to be found in the Audi SQ7, bears almost the same characteristics as an electric motor.
