Bentley has added a new variant in the Bentayga's line-up- the Bentayga S which is positioned between the Bentayga and Bentayga Speed variants. It's a performance-oriented version of the SUV and gets the new Bentley Dynamic Ride system. Essentially, this is an active anti-roll system with a 48-volt system which Bentley claims is first in the industry. The system can react within just 0.3 seconds and applies 1,300 Nm of peak torque to balance lateral rolling forces when cornering. Bentley also says that the system is standard on the Bentayga S and provides optimal cabin stability and maximum tyre grip.
