This or That: Head 2 Head Pits Tesla Model X against Bentley Bentayga

Massive Electric Torque or Twin-Turbo W-12?

May 26, 2016
“Fastest” and “quickest.” Although the words may seem like they have similar meanings, in terms of vehicles, there’s a big difference.

Proving our point is the latest episode of Head 2 Head, which features the world’s fastest SUV, the Bentley Bentayga. With a top speed of nearly 190 mph, the Bentayga could take on just about any vehicle in the world if given enough road. That includes the all-new Tesla Model X, the company’s new all-electric SUV that runs out of steam after hitting 155 mph. Still, as Motor Trend Channel hosts Jason Cammisa and Jonny Lieberman prove, the Tesla still has a few tricks up its sleeve.

Thanks to its electric motors’ instant-on torque, the Model X is quicker to 60 mph and through the quarter-mile than the Bentley, beating out its English competitor by a few tenths of a second in each metric. So if you’ve only got a quarter-mile’s worth of space and you want to be in the best SUV, pick the Tesla. It’s even faster than an Alfa Romeo 4C Spider, even saddled with a most peculiar load. Watch the video to see what we mean.
If you had $200,000-plus to spend on an SUV, which would you pick? The cheaper, quicker, more modern Tesla or the speedy, old-world-luxury Bentley? Watch the video, listen to the arguments, and then let us know what you think.
