Also, there is a new set of wheels. Elliptical headlights and taillights were not available on the previous model. This shape is being used even for the tailpipes. This is the first time the company is updating its flagship model. When it arrived in 2016, the SUV world was stunned with the presence of Bentley in this segment.
The exterior is not so special, since we can find some even more impressive solutions in the market. But, the interior of Bentley’s product is making a difference. It will be the same in 2021 with Bentayga. When you think about luxury, there is nothing beyond this one.
