2018 Bentley Bentayga: Variant Based On Porsche Macan?
Bentley recently showed off a diesel version of the Bentley Bentayga SUV and it is thought that we will also see a baby Bentayga come our way. This would be a smaller version and it may be a variant that is based on the Porsche Macan.
Bentley may follow in the footsteps of Porsche and the idea isn’t so out there as Porsche already have the Macan. When the Cayenne was the only SUV in their line-up people got a surprise when they launched a smaller version in the form of the Macan. By doing so they opened themselves up to an even wider range of consumers as the Macan was an affordable Porsche with five seats. Bentley could be about to follow suit with the Bentley Bentayga.
At the moment Bentleys existing SUV is doing well when it comes to sales. They may have concerns when it comes to diluting the brand, so they may sit on the smaller Bentley Bentayga for some time to come. It isn’t thought that they will launch it before 2018 and when it does arrive it will offer the same platform, albeit heavily modified, as the next gen Audi Q5 and the Porsche Macan.
When the Bentley Bentayga does make it out it will then become the most affordable vehicle in the portfolio of Bentley. But would it be something that you are interested in?
