Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


Overall Rating

Bentley was the first automaker that opened up a new level of uber-luxury SUVs with correspondingly compelling hunger for performance. The final addition to the range was Bentayga Speed, which Bentley claims to be the world's fastest SUV. With the updated model, Bentley continues to innovate and explore the possibilities which arise where ultimate luxury meets thrilling performance. The badge has been in production since 2015 and has Bentley’s trademark design all over. Today, the SUV faces stiff competition from Rolls Royce Cullinan, Lamborghini Urus, and Aston Martin DBX. Here is our take on the 2021 Bentley Bentayga that is soon going on sale in the US market.

2021 Bentley Bentayga V8 Maintenance, Reliability and Warranty

Bentley is famous for its unique design and plush interiors and the 2021 Bentley Bentayga, is no different either. It is among the most expensive SUVs, which price ranges between $168,300-$300,000. The Bentayga’s glitz and glam exterior make the vehicle stand at par from its competition. 

Reliability and Ownership Costs

Bentayga was honored with the ‘Star Award’ at the 2017 Autocar Awards. The 2020 Bentayga shares the Volkswagen Group’s MLB Evo platform with the Audi Q7’s second generation. Built on this renowned and reliable platform, the Bentayga shares the engine mounting and drivetrain with various other cars like the Audi A4, A5, A6, and A7 that provides the advantage of being flexible to use in the vehicle of any body-size.

The 2021 Bentley Bentayga has not been rated yet by the J.D power, but consider the fact that it shares the same platform with Audi Q7, So, the J. D. Power Rating for Audi Q7 holds valid for 2020 Bentayga. As per J.D. Power report, the 2021 Bentayga SUV scores an above-average predicted reliability rating of 79 out of 100. On average, the 2020 Bentayga SUV can cost $170,000 if you throw in dealer discounts and some counties which are exempted from taxes enjoy even better pricing.













Bentley has been a success in delivering quality and efficiency in all its vehicles but in February 2020, there is recall reported and the issue was the side curtain airbags do not fill properly in case of a crash. This further increases the risk of injury in a crash. Bentley has been working on this issue and we are expecting it to be in good shape for the upcoming 2021 Bentayga model.


Like all other Bentley models, the Bentayga SUV comes with a standard three-year warranty. However, the Rolls Royce Cullinan gives more value in terms of a four-year warranty package and four whole years of complimentary maintenance.



Limited warranty

3 years/ 36,000 miles

Powertrain warranty

3 years/ unlimited miles

24-hour roadside assistance

3 years/ unlimited miles

The Bentley offers the Bentayga with a basic warranty, but it cannot compete with the 2020 Range Rover Sport SVR which has a warranty of 6 years from the day of delivery.

Miles per Dollar

In this we will be factoring the annual maintenance cost and how many miles the car runs on average in a year. However, we do not have the data for the annual maintenance figures for the Bentley Bentayga, but we are expecting it to have a very high mile to dollars ration. 

2021 Bentley Bentayga V8 Buying Advice

At an MSRP of $177,000, the Bentley Bentayga V8 is the trim to get, you get all the luxury and comfort features you need along with adequate power. We would recommend getting the Blackline Specification all exterior accents and grille in black with 22-inch black wheels, the Touring Specification which adds driver-assist features, the 5 seating comfort specification. We would recommend a strong color as well - black, blue, or even the Viridian (green) to the exterior.

Bentley Bentayga offers more luxury inside the cabin; it is superbly designed and has the best-built quality with good performance. Bentayga is heavier than Urus, and still, it gives you better fuel efficiency than Urus. Both SUVs have the same engine though the Lamborghini Urus offers the best performance in all the luxury SUV segment and also has a sportier feel to it. Unless you desire more performance, the Bentley is the better option.

2021 Bentley Bentayga vs 2021 Rolls Royce Cullinan

Both the Bentley Bentayga and the Rolls-Royce Cullinan offer the best-in-class interior and all sorts of luxury features and both are big and heavy. The Bentley Bentayga is relatively cheaper than Rolls Royce Cullinan and can do 0-60 mph in less time than Cullinan and provides better MPG figures. Cullinan is heavier than Bentayga, yet it gives better power delivery, but it lacks in fuel efficiency. The Cullinan costs twice as much as the Bentley Bentayga, hence we pick the Bentley.

2021 Bentley Bentayga vs 2021 Aston Martin DBX

The 2021 Aston Martin DBX is the closest when it comes to being the competition of the Bentley Bentayga, they both make the same power, cost nearly the same however, the DBX does offer lesser mpg, but offers more cargo space, and comes with better performance. But with the added practicality and perfroamcne, we do say the DBX is the better option out of the two.
