2016 Bentley SUV (Falcon) Features — Revolution Of SUV Luxury
The 2016 Bentley SUV is almost ready for the first appearance at the Frankfurt Auto Show next year. The name of this very first Bentley SUV, which is actually a reply to the overwhelming demand for genuine luxury SUVs in the U.S. and China, isn’t known yet, but it will probably be the 2016 Bentley Falcon. Of course, we have to wait for the officials to confirm that. Until then, this luxury SUV will be called just like that — the 2016 Bentley SUV. They significantly changed the EXP 9 F concept, which was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show back in 2012. It seems that the general automotive public praised this move, since the EXP 9 F wasn’t the best received vehicle which came from Bentley. The 2016 Bentley SUV is made so good that it will boost the sales. They expect the scale of this SUV’s contribution to be epic. It’s estimated that sales go up for 60 or 70 percent. This means that they invested a lot of effort, money and skills to make this vehicle simply brilliant. With its standard V8 and an optional W12 engine, this refined luxury on wheels will be stunningly powerful. The diesel engine option isn’t confirmed yet, but there’s a possibility that a V8 TDI engine comes under the hood of this brilliant vehicle. The 2016 Bentley SUV is expected to come with a hybrid powertrain, too, but its release date will be slightly later after the release of the conventional versions.
2016 Bentley SUV Platform, Body And Style
When we think about any Bentley vehicle, we think about great power, beautiful design and high class. The 2016 Bentley SUV might look like the manufacturer diverged from the great tradition. Although the mere context of SUV sometimes seems to be incompatible with luxury, they successfully managed to create an equally well-built, beautifully sculpted vehicle, which made a step ahead in the business and art making high-luxury vehicles. This SUV is made on the new MLB Evo platform. That’s the same underpinning which can be found under the 2015 Audi Q7. Thanks to its modularity, this platform will be used for the next models of Porsche Cayenne, VW Touareg and already very popular Lamborghini SUV, based on the Urus concept. Since there is a possibility that the 2016 Bentley SUV comes with three rows of seats after the initial two-row version, there are assumptions about two wheelbases.
Exterior Inherits Basic Bentley Design Language
With recognizable mash grille and round headlights, this SUV won’t leave any doubt about its noble heritage. It’s carefully sculpted, with the EXP 9 F concept in mind, but radically changed. The exterior, whose lines and curves make a beautiful shape, oozes elegance and sophistication. Thanks to the previous models, this vehicle already had numerous design solutions to inherit, so its overall design language won’t drastically diverge from the already established appearance.
Refined Interior — Hand Crafted Luxury And Three Rows Of Seats
The interior of the 2016 Bentley SUV will be hand crafted at the manufacturer’s facility in Crewe, England, where the vehicle will be assembled. It’s true that a version with three rows of seats isn’t something that goes along with the Bentley brand. They want not only to attract their loyal customers, but to expand their fan base with this all-new vehicle. Thanks to the third row of seats (which is still just a possibility) they would be able to offer something that haven’t existed until now. The 2016 Bentley SUV belongs to the SUV market segment, but its luxury is so above all the others that it might be considered a segment for itself. If they provide it with additional row of seats, the expectation are that the U.S. market, where seven-seaters are pretty common, would highly appreciate it. The other important market is Chinese, where the size of this SUV will be very important. Although the specific features and design of the interior aren’t known yet, there’s no doubt that the cabin of the 2016 Bentley SUV will be one of the most luxurious, if not the most luxurious on the market.
2016 Bentley SUV Engine Options: V8 & W12 — Possible Diesel V8 Engine — Hybrid Powertrain
As for the powertrain, the 2016 Bentley SUV might come with several engine options. The base engine is expected to be a V8 hybrid powertrain will probably have a V8 engine and an electric motor already seen inside the Bentley Mulsanne concept.
Release Date and Estimated Price of 2016 Bentley SUV
The release date of the 2016 Bentley SUV will probably be scheduled for the first quarter of 2016. As for the price, the entry version of this remarkable luxury SUV is estimated to cost around $200,000.
