Eyebrows were raised when Bentley announced it was making an SUV, but the Bentayga proved the skeptics wrong.

Now, with the arrival of the 2019 Bentayga V8, it’s getting a little brother – one who may just overshadow the original altogether.

Stablemate Lamborghini has the Urus, underscoring the “Sports” in SUV; Rolls-Royce has gone to its own extremes with the Cullinan. Even Ferrari is getting in on the action, though its Purosangue won’t arrive until 2022.
