Bentley has confirmed this week that its coming new SUV, teased extensively over the past year, will be known as the Bentayga.

The new model’s name is taken from the 1414-metre Roque Bentayga mountain peak of Spain’s Canary Islands, while also drawing inspiration from the Taiga, the world’s largest transcontinental snow forest.

“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,” Bentley chief Wolfgang Dürheimer said.

When the Bentayga is revealed later this year, it will join the Mulsanne, the Flying Spur, the Continental range and the Grand Convertible in the growing Bentley range.

Initially previewed by the 2012 EXP 9 F show car, the Bentayga is expected to wear an outfit more in-line with its stablemates, rather than the confronting lines of that earlier concept.

Little has been revealed at this stage, although a teaser image released last year reveals that the SUV will return to Bentley’s familiar dual-pod headlight design, doing away with the stacked driving and fog light arrangement of the concept.

The SUV is expected to launch with the 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8 already featured in the Continental and Flying Spur, although the company’s big 6.0 litre W12 is also likely to appear, along with a plug-in hybrid option.

Bentley has also confirmed that the Bentayga forms part of a $AU1.4 billion dollar investment in new models and development facilities over the next three years.

Watch for the Bentayga to appear later this year, likely at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
