Bentley's first ever crossover has been spied undergoing testing once again ahead of a full reveal programmed for later this year.

Bentley's first ever crossover has been spied undergoing testing once again ahead of a full reveal programmed for later this year.

We won't blame you if this prototype looks ugly in your opinion as the added unaesthetic plastic bits and pieces have created a very unappealing body but are there to cleverly hide the Bentayga's real design. Those awkward-looking headlights and taillights are just some foils with faux graphics applied onto the real assemblies. The side profile shows body-colored plastic camouflage also noticeable on the front wings while the hood, roof, bumpers and other sections of the car come with a thick matte wrap.

An up-close image of the interior cabin is not available in this latest set but you will observe the crossover has a full dark red theme also noticeable on the leather-wrapped steering wheel which appears to have aluminum spokes. Previous spy shots have shown a digital instrument cluster, circular air vents and a generous touchscreen display for the infotainment system.

Promising to be a "sector-defining SUV", the Bentley Bentayga will go on sale next year as the "world's most powerful and luxurious SUV". It will be followed a year later by a plug-in hybrid derivative and could also spawn a "coupe-styled" version set to come out towards the end of the decade.
