Bentley has stretched the rear of its top-selling Bentayga crossover and significantly upgraded its seating and cabin to deliver a more opulent extended-wheelbase version that seems aimed squarely at the chauffeured market.
The Bentayga Extended Wheelbase adds 180 mm (7.5 inches) to the two-row crossover — all of it behind the front row of seats — giving it what the brand says is the "best rear-cabin experience since the Mulsanne."
But it is not just about the additional space: The larger Bentayga will be outfitted with new 22-way adjustable seats that have "postural adjustment technology" as well as defined modes for relaxing and business.
In relax mode, for instance, the rear seat reclines up to 40 degrees, and a footrest emerges from the rear of the front passenger seat. The seats, Bentley says, "can apply 177 individual pressure changes across six fully independent pressure zones over a three-hour period" to improve comfort and reduce fatigue.
