Kicking things off is a true quintessential car. Bentley Motors Limited is a British luxury car and SUV manufacturer celebrating their centenary this year. With a reputation that precedes them, Bentley redefines luxury with their iconic automobiles, including the pinnacle Bentayga model – a mid-size, front-engine, fivedoor, all-wheel drive SUV, and, the world’s first luxury hybrid.
Maintaining the superlative design and functionality of the Bentley brand, the Bentayga showcases power and speed with its class-leading V6 petrol engine with a twin-scroll turbocharger, adheres to the distinctive sleek lines, B-shaped wing vents and advanced aluminium exterior of the Bentayga family, whilst also creating a sense of tranquility in its handcrafted, exquisite interior with contemporary technical fabric and lacquered veneers.
Equally, the Bentayga hybrid strives to incorporate the technology of today to minimise emissions and fuel consumption, preserve battery charge and increase efficiency, as well as providing you with the ability to stay connected with your car through various online services available on the My Bentley app including remote SUV charging, interior heating and trip statistics. This SUV is a symbol of complete exclusivity and extreme luxury.
Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic
Another British company, Land Rover, is an exclusive manufacturer of luxury four-wheel drive SUVs. With the initial Land Rover often regarded as a British icon, as well as receiving the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, the company has since developed its range of luxurious SUVs. After recognising a gap in the market for an off-road vehicle that included additional elements of comfort and style, Land Rover revealed their first ever Range Rover in 1970.
Over the last 40 years, this model has been reshaped and redesigned to meet all new levels of design, sophistication and technological advancements, and now, Land Rover brings you the Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic. Called the “most agile and dynamically capable Range Rover yet” by managing director, Michael Van Der Sande, this particular SUV joins the power of a 565hp V8 Supercharged engine with a classic contemporary design.
Signature features include diamond quilted fine leathers, steel weave carbon fibre front and rear door veneers, and an exterior styling that features a graphite atlas front grille and side vent; the SVAutobiography is synonymous of the luxury that is the Range Rover and is the ultimate SUV. If you would like a little preview of the luxuries this model has to offer before you make your purchase, hire a Range Rover from Nationwide and take it for a spin to get a true feel for the vehicle.
