The design concept of the new 2017 Bentley Bentayga is probably miles away from the Bentley EXP 9 F Concept design that debuted four years ago at the Geneva Motor Show. Much of the design language that has been employed by the new model has been borrowed heavily from the top-selling Continental GT model with slight modifications done to befit the size and shape of an SUV.

But even so, there are some few features that set it apart from the 2017 Continental GT including the grille, headlights, and the engine hood. The LED headlights mimic those of the Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 concept that debuted last year, the engine hood is smaller, and the grille is significantly larger.

The side profile is akin to that of the Range Rover Sport. It looks pretty much menacing on the side thanks to the iconic rear haunches, and the 20-22-inch wheel designs available. Around back, it gets bigger exhaust outlets, a sturdy bumper, and oval-shaped taillights. Aluminum metal is also heavily used in the construction if the body panels.
