2018 Bentley Bentayga vs. Its Competition

2018 Bentley Bentayga
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Bentley Bentayga may be a rarity now, but hyper-luxury SUVs are coming thick and fast.

Porsche’s Cayenne does speed like the Bentley Bentayga, in top trims, but doesn’t heap on the excessive interior appointments like the Bentayga.

The Maserati Levante may be recognizable as an exclusive SUV, especially considering its shape, but at a third of the cost of the Bentley, unfortunately it’s in a different league.

The Audi Q7 is related to the Bentayga, but with half of the cylinders and a different interior layout.

If you’re the type of person who wants to pay more for a Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, just wait, a rumored Maybach version could be on its way soon.

The Land Rover Range Rover offers an extended-wheelbase version, which the Bentayga may do soon, and can be opulent in Autobiography trim that rivals the Bentley’s price.
