Bentley Bentayga Name Confirmed

It’s official! The very first Bentley SUV will be called the Bentley Bentayga. You might like it or hate it, but you must admit that the name really stands out. As we previously anticipated, since there were some indications that SUV will have this unusual moniker.

Use of the word Bentayga might be a bit strange. It’s not aligned with the other brand’s nameplates or with the rival monikers. This is something very different.

They probably decided to use the Bentley Bentayga name because of its phonetics, but there’s a story behind the new moniker. As we previously reported, there’s a rock, called the Roque Bentayga in the Canary Islands. Also, a part of the word Bentayga can be associated with the word ‘Taiga’ which is used for large and cool snowforest.

Bentley Motors CEO and Chairman, Mr. Wolfgang  Dürheimer, said:

“Bentayga is a name that reflects what we know our SUV will do better than any other car in the world – combine the best automotive luxury with outstanding performance to take the Bentley experience to new environments.”

According to the automaker, the Bentley Bentayga SUV will be introduced later this year, while they’re going to release it sometime in 2016.
