Introduction to the Bentayga EWB
The Bentayga extended wheelbase builds on the latest second-generation Bentayga, extending the wheelbase and rear cabin space by an extra 180 mm. With body-in-white changes to the underfloor, side panels, door and roof, Bentley’s design team have ensured the lines’ proportions continue to exude style and presence. This increases the results in the wheelbase of the car stretching from 2995 mm to 3175 mm with an overall length of 5322 mm. The increased length is all in the rear door, creating an exceptionally luxurious rear cabin area. With a larger cabin space than any other luxury competitor, and emphasis on Wellness, and the introduction of the world's first auto climate and advanced postural adjustment rear seat, extraordinary journeys are guaranteed.
The new Bentley airline seat specification is the most advanced seat ever fitted to a car, with 22 ways of adjusting the world's- firsts in a new auto climate sensing system and postural adjusting technology. In relaxed mode, the seat can recline to 40 degrees while the passenger seat is motored forwards and a beautifully-leathered, trimmed footrests deploys from the back of the front passenger seat. In miss mode, the seat moves into its most upright position to make working on the move more comfortable. The auto climate seat technology senses occupant temperature and surface humidity and then determines whether to apply heat, ventilation or both simultaneously to keep the occupant at optimum thermal well-being. Meanwhile, the postural adjustment system automatically makes micro-adjustments to the occupants’ seating position and pressure points by measuring pressure across the seat surface. The system can apply 177 individual pressure changes across six fully independent pressure zones over a 3-hour period improving comfort and minimizing fatigue throughout a journey.
The Bentayga EWB incorporates a more advanced stitching design created using digital craftsmanship. Diamonds can be seen elongating symmetrically from the centre of the setbacks shoulder panels and along the length of the door, reflecting the extension of the car itself. The new interior style of the rear door also includes a unique design showcasing the optional ‘metal overlay in veneer’. using a thin metal strip just 0.07 mm thick, an intricate design is bonded by hand on the surface of the veneer before the part is lacquered and polished. New features like Bentley diamond illumination (where light is emitted through small perforations in the soft field door trim) demonstrate how technology combines with contemporary craftsmanship to deliver incredibly modern design in luxurious materials. With 24 billion trim combinations alone and (a total number of possible specifications running into the trillions) the cabin of the Bentayga extended field base he's capable of offering the most individual Bentayga ever.
The introduction of electronic all-wheel steering, a first for the Bentayga, ensures that there is no shortfall of dynamic ability despite the longer wheelbase. In fact, the turning circle is 7% less than a standard Bentayga, adjust 11.8 meters. This also guarantees no compromise between high- speed confidence and low speed convenience. Bentley dynamic ride, the 48V active anti- roll control system introduced originally by Bentayga as a world first, is included as standard and provides the optimum balance between ultimate ride comfort, handling and body control.
