Australia 2010 Range Rover Sport 3.0 TDV6 HSE Fuji White
Bentley SUV

Saw my first Bentley SUV in Sydney CBD yesterday, totally underwhelmed, side ways on it could be a mix of german marques.

I will put it in the Ssangyong category of attractiveness Rolling with laughter Whistle Another Pommie Bar Steward down under

3.0 TDv6 Fuji/Ebony/Anigre, locking Diff thingy, Towpack, sunroof, rear camera, high beam annoyance and a very brand new $25 Supercheap Auto cargo net... plus.. wait for it.. OL bull bar, winch, lightforce driving lights, LR raised intake/snorkel, bash plates, rock sliders and step out protection bars.. ATR tyres.. Hibernating.....

2.7 RRS TDv6, Zermatt/Ebony GONE.AGES AGO.....

Yes, totally agree, but, the inside is fabulous. Just shame that you've got to look at it from the outside before getting in. Shocked

2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Stornoway Grey

And now it even has an Audi V8 4.0 Diesel engine............... according to Autocar it is so well re-engineered by Bentley (basically they take it to pieces and re-engineer to their requirements at Crewe) that fuel consumption apart, it is almost as good as the W12 petrol. Still not incentive enough for me to buy if I could afford to. 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV on order for April delivery, bye bye Land Rover after 21 years and 11 LR products..... all because you won’t give me reassurance that should my SDv6 crankshaft break because of a design fault, not MY fault, but the engine builders fault - it will be replaced for free.
2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, but not for much longer........
Also in my garage is a 1996 TDi300 Defender 90 County HT made into a fake CSW

United Kingdom 2008 Range Rover Sport TDV8 HSE Stornoway Grey

A number of the reviews suggest that the Bentley is better than the FFRR as a luxury SUV. Better luxury, better on road driving and good enough off road. Not that many FFRR or Bentleys will ever go off road, of course.

The Bentley isn't a looked, that's for sure. But then neither are a number of excellent cars. 2012 SDV6 - it's missing a couple of cylinders
2008 TDV8 - it was a labour of love and is much missed

It's as ugly as Censored however it is the best 4x4 to drive by miles! Wonderful cabin and one is purely besotted with luxury and refinement. I will get one when they hit £70k (hopefully not too long)!.

They seem to look nicer decrhomed in darker colours. I was lent one for a long weekend and loved it apart from the looks! Thumbs Up
