Leading US automotive industry organization and research firm Wards has named the Bentley Bentayga Speed as among the recipients of the most recent Wards 10 Best Interiors trophy, an annual list presented by WardsAuto. The latest award marks the third year in a row in which the craftsmanship and attention to detail found within Bentley interiors have been recognized as among the finest in the industry.
Now on its 11th year, the Wards 10 Best Interiors competition recognizes vehicles’ outstanding achievement in aesthetics, comfort, ergonomics, materials usage, fit-and-finish, and user-friendliness of their displays and controls. In the latest edition, WardsAuto judges evaluated a short list of 33 vehicles which have new or significantly improved interiors for the 2021 model year.
“The Bentayga Speed takes bespoke to another level,” said Christophe Georges, President and CEO of Bentley Americas. “Owners of our extraordinary vehicles have been given the option to make them completely theirs, with an almost unlimited combination of options available to do so. This elevated luxury is embodied in the Bentley DNA.”
The interior of the Bentayga Speed boasts extraordinary details throughout the cabin, elevating the already distinctive design of the Bentley Bentayga’s exterior. Inside the definitive ultra-luxury SUV, a unique approach to design translates into unrivaled luxury and comfort with an exclusive color split option, including tactile Alcantara elements and unique color accents, to create a truly distinctive look. This striking option also adds contrast stitching to the quilting, completing the backrest with the ultimate craftsmanship statement.
Beautifully handcrafted veneers, innovative technical finishes, natural leathers, and a vast choice of stitching options also combine to create an environment that would immerse customers in their journeys.
Another feature that raises the Bentayga Speed’s luxurious experience is the Naim for Bentley sound system, which takes music to the next level. Considered the most powerful audio system available in any SUV, this class-leading option channels 1780 watts of power through 20 speakers. The system also provides eight sound modes, all specially designed to satisfy the preferences of the most dedicated audiophiles.
“It’s always exciting to have a Bentley in the competition that has been freshly touched by a design team that clearly is encouraged to push the boundaries of automotive interiors,” said Tom Murphy, Managing Editor at WardsAuto. “In the case of the Bentayga Speed, the team delivers a dramatic, sporty, captivating passenger compartment that maintains the brand’s identity while incorporating the latest connectivity and infotainment technologies. The fact that so much of this interior is built and stitched by hand makes it even more remarkable.”
The Bentayga Speed is the pinnacle of the Bentayga family. Offering effortless performance without compromising on luxury, the model is hand-built at Bentley’s iconic factory in Crewe, England, and combines a W12 powertrain with many of the Bentayga line’s luxurious features, including the Mulliner Driving Specification. The Bentayga Speed takes the Bentayga’s extraordinary abilities to new levels with its 6.0-liter W12 twin-turbocharged engine that delivers 635 hp and 900 Nm.
