Bentley’s first SUV is expected to be premiered at 2015 Geneva Motor Show. It will be launched sometime in 2016.

Although Bentley SUV is dubbed world’s most expensive, the base variant may not be priced higher than other models from the same brand – Continental GT, Flying Spur and Mulsanne. The SUV could be priced at $214,000 (Rs.1.35 crores approx.).

Rivals of Bentley SUV will include Porsche Cayenne Turbo S, Mercedes-Benz GL63 AMG and top-of-the-line Range Rover from JLR. Apart from these, a Rolls Royce SUV could also make it to the rivals list, which is pending decision this year.

Once the ultra-luxury SUV from Bentley goes on sale, the company may start working on a smaller crossover, as the firm has expressed interest in expanding their lineup in coming years.
