The Bentayga Extended Wheelbase (EWB) has been extended by 180 mm to offer even more legroom, creating Bentley’s latest, sector-defining grand tourer. With increased interior dimensions compared to other luxury rivals, the EWB features optional Airline Seat Specification, with world-first climate sensing and advanced postural adjustment systems. The height of craftsmanship, EWB seat configurations include an all-new 4 + 1 layout, alongside four and five-seat versions.
The EWB, launched with Bentley’s 4.0-litre 550 PS V8 engine, also features the first application of Bentley Diamond Illumination, delivering cabin lighting through handcrafted leather. Customers can choose from 24 billion different trim combinations, with finer sewing threads creating Bentley’s softest, a lofted quilt to date. The EWB Azure on display in Belgium prioritises comfort, with a carefully curated selection of features for ‘wellness behind the wheel’. Developed with the help of wellbeing experts and neuroscientists, the Azure includes the Touring Specification of advanced driver assistance technologies for safer, more relaxing journeys. The stress-free interior ambience is enhanced by reduced levels of NVH, or Noise, Vibration and Harshness.
Bentley Bentayga Extended Wheelbase Azure Key Features
Bentley Airline Seat Specification
As part of the optional Bentley Airline Seat Specification, the seat behind the front passenger can recline generously, with a footrest deploying from the back of the front passenger seat, which can fold forward if unoccupied. Seat Auto-Climate adds sensors to both rear seats, to maintain pre-set temperature and humidity levels, while Postural Adjust makes proactive micro-adjustments to the support in the seat, stimulating muscles and reducing fatigue. Both features are world-first.
Front Seat Comfort Specification
The Front Seat Comfort Specification adds heating, ventilation and massage functions to the front seats, alongside comfort headrests and 20-way electrical adjustment. Mood lighting and air ionisers ensure the ambience is never compromised, throughout the car.
With the Touring Specification installed as standard, long journeys are easier, safer and more enjoyable. Features include Adaptive Cruise Control, allowing you to take your feet off the pedals during highway driving and lane detection to correct you if you drift to the left or right. A head-up display makes it easy to see vital information, while a night vision camera improves safety on unlit roads.
The standard specification of the New Bentayga EWB Azure is just the beginning. In addition to a standard palette of 16 exterior finishes, you can also opt for a colour from the Extended Paint Range, which brings the total choice to around 60 colours. If the 22” wheels fitted as standard are not for you, a 21” design and a striking 22” 5-spoke option are also available.
Inside, you have access to Bentley’s entire hide colour range, including two-tone colour splits. You can add contrast stitching, piping and hand cross-stitching, to really bring the interior to life. The full range of veneers is available, including high-gloss wood and open-pore options such as Crown Cut Walnut, Dark Burr Walnut and Koa. Technical finishes include carbon fibre, the pearl-like Piano Linen by Mulliner or Dark Tint Diamond Brushed Aluminium. High-gloss woods can be elevated further with the addition of gleaming metal overlays.
Beyond aesthetics, options include everything from Naim for Bentley, an audiophile-quality sound system, to folding rear picnic tables. The optional Bentley Rear Entertainment system, meanwhile, allows rear-seat passengers to stream content from their mobile devices to 10.1” screens on the backs of the front seats.
A 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine delivers 550 PS and 770 Nm of torque, for a smooth surge of acceleration: 0-60 mph in just 4.5 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds).
The Bentley Dynamic Ride anti-roll system helps stabilise the cabin when the car is cornering, while also boosting cabin comfort on the open road. And thanks to All-Wheel Steering, the New Bentayga EWB Azure can be manoeuvred as easily as a much smaller car.
