It's ugly, and with potential VW underpinnings, pointless. This one-platform-fits-all campaign of the Volkswagen Group has somehow ruined Porsche already. If ever, this "Bentley" will essentially just be a Touareg glorified with this hideous London Taxi bodyshell. If you want English go-anywhere luxury, buy a Range Rover, and spend the change getting your son or daughter an Evoque. For everything ...

I hope it isn't shortened when they start with this SUV. The word, BIG and FAT seems fitting for this hunk of Metal
Paul Lissona Jul 23, 2012
Wow that's a great thing to know.
Brad Henson Jul 23, 2012
I wish I could have a job guaranteed for 14 years
Connor Short Jul 29, 2012
It's very unique I guess, I love the lights but I don't like the grille accents next to them
Tom Heth Jul 27, 2012
Sort of looks like a Dodge Magnum with a Studebaker Lark front end, neat.
Alexander Gomez Jul 24, 2012
I like the lights for the fact that they're so unique in comparison to other Suvs. They match with the continental lights so they shouldn't come as a surprise.
Christo Savaides Jul 24, 2012
This car looks amazing.
Colin Dzendolet Jul 24, 2012
if it weren't for those damn headlights, this would be a great looking suv, they kill the whole thing
Danny Reed Jul 24, 2012
Tire cooling maybe. Or maybe they blow past a radiator
Danny Reed Jul 24, 2012
This looks awesome. I like the brake cooling fans below the headlights
Jordan Jackson Jul 24, 2012
It's a win win for everyone involved, if the SUVs take off that is
Jordan Jackson Jul 24, 2012
... If the make a lot of money off of these, they can spend more in development of there sports and super cars
Jordan Jackson Jul 24, 2012
Hey, for everyone questioning the high end luxury SUV's, think about it this way...
Larry Smith Jul 23, 2012
The front end looks like shit
Khaled AlShaye Jul 23, 2012
I liked the car in general although the headlights brought it to a negative side. Just a bit of improvement. My mom ordered it and my dad didn't like it though so he got a Ferrari 458 italia:D
John Serely Jul 23, 2012
...which is all some people need. It may not be marketed to enthusiasts, but it has a market. If I had a ton of money, and already had a lot of cars, I'd buy it. It may not be my first choice as a DD or weekend car, but would be great in snowy places
John Serely Jul 23, 2012
Hmm, I don't think it's that bad, it's bad, just not horrible. It will sell, though, and will sell a lot. Every new actor or hip hop star and their mom will have one, just like the conti gt. Its just a huge, flashy status symbol, which is

I love new risk taking designs, they are almost always the ones that become winners. We never progress from auto makers being safe. These guys didn't go far outside of the box. This looks similar to the rest of there products IMO. I wish them luck with this one when and if it goes into production.
Zachary Maurer Jul 23, 2012
It looks like a pissed of autobot...
Kevin Rehbock Jul 23, 2012
The world doesn't need another luxury crossover.
Tin Nguyen Jul 23, 2012
Ten Yrs down the road this will be one of carbuzz's articles on the biggest automotive missteps.
Keenan Casteel Jul 23, 2012
@Nick, yes! Just like that Lincoln whatever it was called!
Nick Schnee Jul 23, 2012
All these SUVs kind of start to annoy me... What's next? High-end-luxury pickups?
Logan LeMonnier Jul 23, 2012
I love it in a weird way. Very different
Sam Hansen Jul 23, 2012
Wow next thing you know, Koenigsegg will decide to make an SUV...
Brad Henson Jul 23, 2012
I don't have a problem with the design, just change/remove the fog lights
Matthew Crighton Jul 23, 2012
Get rid of those headlights and put something sleeker on it.
Chris Penza Jul 23, 2012
I don't see why they need to build this. The vw group seems obsessed with SUVs now, and this one is hideous
Jordan Jackson Jul 23, 2012
It's not good looking, but it's not hideous, it still looks like a Bentley, and it looks way better that Aston Martins
Ceyda Deniz Gurler Jul 23, 2012
i cant decide i like it or not. it looks like a future car concept from 80's
Stephen Reed Warren II Jul 23, 2012
I think it looks pretty good
Cody Andree Jul 23, 2012
Not good at all. Plain wrong
David Jagiello Jul 23, 2012
Looks like a Bentley
John Serely Jul 23, 2012
Not great, but I think it looks much better in this (these) pictures, rather than the ones where it's at the auto show
Carlton Salmon Jul 23, 2012
Ugly beyond words...
Jose Miguel Fernandez Jul 23, 2012
It doesn't look good but it doesn't look bad either
Mike Ulickey Jul 23, 2012
It's not to bad, not fond of the front lights.
Lee Cascio Jul 25, 2012
Just a more expensive touareg, cayanne, Q7, lambo suv and so on.
Danny Reed Jul 24, 2012
They are fans of some sort. Saw the bid on their website
Jordan Jackson Jul 24, 2012
They even have little grills on them so u don't suck up any low flying birds or unfortunate squirrels, lol
Jordan Jackson Jul 24, 2012
I bet those are turbos instead of lights, lol
Trey Villarreal Jul 24, 2012
Fog lights? More like air intake vents.
David Purcell Jul 24, 2012
Headlights are pretty big and fogs are way to big IMO.
Daniel Eads Jul 24, 2012
Lose the bottom lights and it's fine.
Keenan Casteel Jul 23, 2012
Rolls needs to make an SUV. Even though it'll cost 7.5 million.
Jordan Jackson Jul 23, 2012
And it's (the concept anyway) has a mini bar in the rear
Chris Penza Jul 23, 2012
It may not look pleasing, but I'm sure the inside is nice
Jordan Jackson Jul 23, 2012
All they need is to alter the front the rest isn't bad
Corey Mullis Jul 23, 2012
Somehow this shameful Bentley is starting to grow om me
Klay Owens Jul 24, 2012
That's a range rover platform... Just prettied up.
David Purcell Jul 24, 2012
Nooooooo way to ugly from the back.
Grant McHendry Jul 23, 2012
They need to do something else with the lights all together. Front & back.
Theo Hubbard Jul 23, 2012
The back is really nice! The front is eh. Revise the front and sleek it up a little bit and then bam! Perfect SUV
Read Mills Jul 23, 2012
I think Bentley is going after the Range Rover market with this thing. I am sure that corporate America will buy this aplenty.
Avery Williams Jul 23, 2012
Too much Range Rover going on in this car but it's growing on me still.
Connor Short Jul 29, 2012
I love the rims!!!!!
Kevin Watson Jul 25, 2012
I wish they didn't match the rims with the front end.
Danny Reed Jul 24, 2012
Who cares they look amazing!!!
David Purcell Jul 24, 2012
That would take you an hour to clean one wheel.
Lead Peddalin Jul 24, 2012
I like this car. A lot. I'd change the rims though.
Rocky Rocker Jul 23, 2012
Ok, This is Gross!
Heshoo Hanna Jul 23, 2012
Look at those rims
Tin Nguyen Jul 23, 2012
A7 rear. Still ugly.
Zachary Maurer Jul 23, 2012
@john couldn't agree more
Forrest Wood Jul 23, 2012
Looks like a cross between a Range Rover and a Cayenne
John Serely Jul 23, 2012
Not a fan of the whe...
