(Munich, 08 December 2022) The Bentayga Extended Wheelbase (EWB) has won the Special Prize of the Comfort category in the fifth edition of the Automobile Awards, which took place at the prestigious Automobile Club de France, place de la Concorde. The all-new Bentayga EWB, was named the most comfortable car on the road by a panel of 20 expert judges being professionals, journalists and partners from the automotive and non automotive world.

Unveiled in May this year, the luxury SUV builds on the success of the latest, second-generation Bentayga, extending the wheelbase and cabin space by an extra 180 mm. The extra length creates an exceptional rear cabin, with the emphasis on wellness and the wellbeing of passengers.

The Automobile Awards' judging panel, which is split evenly between men and women, considered 190 entries from 47 different marques. Explaining the selection of the Bentayga EWB as winner of the Special Prize of the Comfort Category, Lionel Robert,  organiser of the Automobile Awards said: “The Bentayga Extended Wheelbase is mixing elegantly the extreme comfort as we dream it, and remain teinted by its inherent dynamism. When taking the wheel of a Bentley, the driver remain connected and in contact of the road keeping the full control of the vehicle with an exceptional comfort. With its world-first seats, the EWB is a car you enjoy driving yet to enjoy being driven in its upmost comfort.”

EWB is available with the Bentley’s new Airline Seat Specification. The most advanced seats ever fitted to a car help to ensure extraordinary journeys are guaranteed in an EWB. Among the many features are 22-ways adjustment, as well as world firsts in a new auto climate sensing system and postural adjustment technology.

The rear cabin of the Bentayga EWB sets the benchmark for combining world-class luxury and technological innovation, features that clearly caught the attention of the French judging panel. Demonstrating new heights of craftsmanship and comfort, EWB also retains the Bentayga’s hallmarks of effortless performance and endless personalisation.

Powered by Bentley’s proven 4.0-litre, V8 petrol engine, the Bentayga EWB combines immense power with impressive fuel economy. Ride and handling are unequalled for an SUV, with Electronic All Wheel Steering and Bentley Dynamic Ride as standard.

Balazs Rooz, Regional Director, Bentley Motors Europe, added:

“Since its launch seven years ago, the Bentayga has dominated the luxury SUV segment by being first launched, and proved its credibility through different powertrains, genuine off-road capability, hybrid technology, bespoke specifications and record-breaking performance. Therefore, it is with absolute honour that I receive this special prize today highlighting Bentley’s drive to bring a new focus on wellbeing to every car handbuilt at our Crewe factory. This is a testament of the quality of the team back in Crewe and a great news for our customers who can benefit from no less than 26 billions of configurations on this class-leading Bentayga.”
