For enhanced safety, the front and middle seat shoulder belts of the Bentley Bentayga have pretensioners to tighten the seatbelts and eliminate dangerous slack in the event of a collision and force limiters to limit the pressure the belts will exert on the passengers. The BMW X6 doesn’t offer pretensioners for the middle seat belts.

For enhanced safety, the front seat shoulder belts of the Bentley Bentayga are height-adjustable to accommodate a wide variety of driver and passenger heights. A better fit can prevent injuries and the increased comfort also encourages passengers to buckle up. The BMW X6 doesn’t offer height-adjustable seat belts.

To provide maximum traction and stability on all roads, All-Wheel Drive is standard on the Bentayga. But it costs extra on the X6.

Both the Bentayga and the X6 have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights, blind spot warning systems, rearview cameras, available crash mitigating brakes, night vision systems, lane departure warning systems, around view monitors and rear cross-path warning.

On the EPA test cycle the Bentayga Hybrid running on electricity gets better fuel mileage than the X6 s/xDrive40i xDrive (43 city/49 hwy MPGe vs. 20 city/26 hwy).

The Bentayga Hybrid can drive on battery power alone for up to 18 miles. The X6 must run its internal combustion engine to move.

An engine control system that can shut down some of the engine’s cylinders (except Hybrid) helps improve the Bentayga’s fuel efficiency. The X6 doesn’t offer a system that can shut down part of the engine.

For better stopping power the Bentayga’s brake rotors are larger than those on the X6:

The Bentayga offers optional heat-treated ceramic brake rotors, which last ten to twenty times as long as conventional cast iron rotors, don’t rust, don’t fade during repeated high speed braking, and their lighter weight contribute to better braking, handling and acceleration. The X6 doesn’t offer ceramic brake rotors.

For better traction, the Bentayga’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the X6 (285/45R21 vs. 275/40R21).

The Bentayga has a standard full size spare tire so a flat doesn’t interrupt your trip. A full size spare isn’t available on the X6; it requires you to depend on a temporary spare or run-flat tires, either of which has mileage and speed limitations.

Suspension and Handling

The front and rear suspension of the Bentayga uses air springs for a smoother, controlled ride than the X6, which uses coil springs. Air springs maintain proper ride height and ride more smoothly.

The Bentayga has a standard automatic front and rear load leveling suspension to keep ride height level with a heavy load or when towing. The Bentayga’s height leveling suspension allows the driver to raise ride height for better off-road clearance and then lower it again for easier entering and exiting and better on-road handling. The X6 doesn’t offer a load leveling suspension.

For better maneuverability, the Bentayga SPEED’s turning circle is 2.4 feet tighter than the X6’s (39 feet vs. 41.4 feet). The Bentayga’s turning circle is .8 feet tighter than the X6’s (40.6 feet vs. 41.4 feet).

For greater off-road capability the Bentayga has a 1.6 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the X6 xDrive40i (9.7 vs. 8.1 inches), allowing the Bentayga to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

The design of the Bentley Bentayga amounts to more than styling. The Bentayga has an aerodynamic coefficient of drag of .34 Cd. That is lower than the X6 (.34 to .35). A more efficient exterior helps keep the interior quieter and helps the Bentayga get better fuel mileage.

The Bentayga offers optional seating for 7 passengers; the X6 can only carry 5.

The Bentayga has 1 inch more front headroom, 1.3 inches more front legroom, .5 inches more rear headroom, 5.2 inches more rear legroom and .1 inches more rear shoulder room than the X6.

For enhanced passenger comfort on long trips the Bentayga’s middle row seats recline. The X6’s rear seats don’t recline.

Flexibility is maximized at the game, campground or a drive-in theatre in the Bentayga when its optional tailgating rear seats are deployed, allowing people to sit facing out of the liftgate. (Do not use while vehicle is in motion.) The X6 doesn’t offer tailgating seats.

To improve rear visibility by keeping the rear window clear, the Bentayga has a standard rear wiper. The X6 doesn’t offer a rear wiper.

In poor weather, headlights can lose their effectiveness as grime builds up on their lenses. This can reduce visibility without the driver realizing. The Bentayga has standard headlight washers to keep headlight output high. The X6 doesn’t offer headlight washers.

Optional air conditioned the front and second row seats keep the Bentayga’s passengers comfortable and take the sting out of hot leather in summer. The X6 doesn’t offer air-conditioned seats in the rear.

Both the Bentayga and the X6 offer optional massaging front seats. The Bentayga also offers optional massaging second row seats in order to maximize comfort and eliminate fatigue on long trips. Massaging rear seats aren’t available in the X6.
