The range-topping Bentley Bentayga Speed competes in a burgeoning segment of ultra-luxury SUVs, but unlike the Rolls-Royce Cullinan and Mercedes-Maybach GLS, the Bentayga Speed also makes a performance grab. With a VMAX of 190 mph, the Speed is tied with Lamborghini’s Urus for highest top speed in an SUV. Behind the wheel, however, awaits a pure Bentley luxury experience, including knurled metal finishes, supple leather, Alcantara, quilted stitching, and jewel-like dials. Thanks to the smoothness of its W12 engine and extent of its cabin insulation, the Bentayga Speed whisks forward with coffin-quiet cabin noise. Is this the ultimate daily driver for a well-to-do family? Find out below!
