Our spy photographers have snapped a facelifted Bentley Bentayga SUV during its winter testing, with updated panelling and new lights

The Bentley Bentayga looks set to receive a subtle facelift next year, which will bring the SUV’s styling in line with the latest Continental GT and recently released Flying Spur.

Cosmetic revisions are fairly minor, stretching to a reworked front bumper with an updated skid plate, a new mesh radiator grille and a tweaked rear bumper with fresh reflectors and reworked twin exhaust tips. Bentley will also fit new headlamps and larger daytime running lights, housed in a pair of reprofiled front wings.

Inside, we expect the updated Bentayga will adopt the same three-sided rotating dashboard panel as the Continental GT and Flying Spur, which gives the driver the option of displaying a 12.3-inch touchscreen, a simple veneer panel or a collection of three analogue gauges which show the outside temperature, a chronograph and compass.

Like the new Audi SQ7, with which the Bentayga shares its platform, the reworked Bentley SUV could adopt Volkswagen’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre 48-volt mild-hybrid V8 diesel engine for improved fuel economy and emissions. Should it be transferred into the updated model in the same state of tune, it will produce 429bhp and 900Nm of torque.

In the SQ7, the engine offers economy figures of 37mpg and emissions ratings of roughly 200g/km of CO2. Given that the Bentley is roughly the same size as the Audi’s largest SUV, these figures should also be attainable for the Bentayga – making it the second most economical model in the range after the V6-engined plug-in hybrid variant.

The new Porsche Cayenne Coupé has been designed to capitalise on growing interest from buyers of high-end, sporty SUVs who really want exclusive style from their new car. It’s very closely related to the standard Cayenne, but a sloping roofline at the rear end gives it a sportier look, while the model retains the high-up driving position that fans of SUVs love. Another model that really influenced the SUV style stakes was the Range Rover Sport. • Fastest SUVs in the world Of course we’ve tested this model before, but serial updates have kept it fresh, and it’s now available with a new engine that brings it close to the Cayenne for specification. The P400 we’re testing has a 3.0-litre straight-six petrol motor under the bonnet, which means it’s a rival for the entry-level version of the Cayenne Coupé, which has a 3.0-litre V6.
