The new Bentayga has among the greatest breadth of ability of any car on the road, and with the Four Seat Comfort Specification, the car’s abilities as the limousine of SUVs come to the fore. With the four-seat version of the car now available from launch together with both a five-seat configuration and the option of a full seven-seat interior, the interior of the new Bentayga is configurable to the demands of consumers.
Building on the profitability of the earlier generation where one in every five cars (4,000 vehicles) was specified with the four-seat configuration, rear legroom has been enhanced to improve the chauffeur-driven experience through careful design and relocation of the backboard separating the cabin from the boot area. The maximum recline of the backseats has been boosted from 32° to 40°, and the fore and aft travel has been boosted by 35mm. This combination provides a 100mm improvement in knee room in the reclined position, helping to make luxury travel much more comfortable.
All the seats in the new Bentayga have been completely redesigned and now have a more sculptured shape, particularly around the shoulder area, to provide an even greater level of comfort that improves the industry-recognized benchmark even more for seat comfort.
The Four Seat Comfort Specification adds further rear seat content as well including seat ventilation (together with seat heating as standard), a selection of six different massage programmes, and a winged comfort headrest. With the Four Seat Comfort Specification, the Mulliner Console Bottle Cooler can also be selected, housing fully integrated drinks cooler for a 750ml bottle, and two handcrafted Cumbria Crystal Flutes.
Between the two rear seats, a rear center console provides extra stowage and two further USB charging sockets. While a nice looking leather-trimmed backboard containing a diamond quilted ski hatch separates the cabin from the boot space.
To access the extra seat functionality, rear-seat passengers can take advantage of a technology upgrade for the new Bentayga with the new, larger Touch Screen Remote control tablet, similar to that launched in the all-new Flying Spur. The five-inch display uses more modern graphics and has extra processing power through an onboard quad-core processor and 1 GB of RAM. The unit can control series of functions, from rear-seat heating and massage, to the media system and navigation, to mood lighting, and electric windows and also sunroof blind.
