Bentley Manila introduced the new Bentley Bentayga Extended Wheelbase (EWB) Azure during an exclusive event suitably held at an urban oasis — the PGA Cars Studio.
The new Bentayga EWB, a result of a nine-figure investment by Bentley to create the best rear-cabin experience, redefines backseat space and luxury as the extra 180 millimeters of length all go aft of the SUV’s B-pillar. Significant revisions to the vehicle’s underfloor, side panels, roof and rear doors create a rear passenger room larger than that in any other ultra-luxury SUV.
Meanwhile, the Azure designation identifies this special Bentayga EWB as a mobile sanctuary. In Bentley’s rarefied world, Azure prioritizes the wellness of its occupants, offering a carefully curated selection of features promoting “wellbeing behind the wheel.”
Developed with wellbeing experts and neuroscientists, the Bentayga EWB Azure is fitted with advanced driver assistance technologies for safer, more relaxing journeys. Its stress-free interior ambience, thanks to reduced levels of noise, vibration and harshness, reduces fatigue through multisensory and scientific design.
Standard to the Bentayga EWB Azure is a 4+1 seating layout. The Airline Seat Specification offers maximum relaxation, with backrests that recline 40 degrees, making sleep such a tempting option regardless of a journey’s length. Other key features include Seat Auto Climate, Postural Adjustment, additional cushioning, and backrest bolster adjustment.
Throughout the Bentayga EWB Azure’s cabin are new craftsmanship elements, like the Bentley Dynamic Illumination that bathes the handcrafted leather in a soft glow. Finer sewing threads result in Bentley’s softest lofted quilt to date. And when Bentley says customization options are endless, the quintessentially British marque means exactly that — available to the Bentayga EWB Azure are 24 billion trim combinations.
Wafting the Bentayga EWB Azure along is Bentley’s 4.0-liter, 32-valve, dual twin-scroll turbocharged V8 gasoline engine. While utterly serene in motion, it also guarantees supercar performance in the same breath. A power output of 550 hp and 770 Nm of torque does the trick, affording the massive SUV a top speed of 290 km/h and 0-100 km/h sprint time of 4.6 seconds. Yes, the Airline Seat Specification is quite apt in such proceedings.
Plus, chassis and powertrain refinements that include Electronic All-Wheel Steering and Bentley Dynamic Ride reflect the performance abilities of the Bentayga EWB Azure. These are no mere flights of fancy.
