2021 BMW X3 M vs. 2021 Bentley Bentayga


When it comes to superbly engineered performance SUVs, the 2021 BMW X3 M sits rights at the top of the category. This amazing crossover comes with a host of features that make it as practical as it is exciting to drive. With a rich sporting heritage and blistering speeds, this is a car that will set your blood racing on the track. On the other hand, the 2021 Bentley Bentayga is a superb SUV that is crafted to deliver a unique experience. For those looking for high-octane performance, this is not a car that will deliver that. The Bentayga is more at home outside a posh restaurant than on the race track. Let us have a look at these two SUVs and give a verdict on which is the better one.

Design & Style

With dashing good looks and a sporty stance, the 2021 BMW X3 M is designed to be at home on the race track. Its large sporty wheels and sporty curves ensure that it stands out anywhere you go. Inside the cabin, the car features a steering wheel that is designed to enhance your grip as you take it for a spin around the track. The cabin is spacious and the trunk space generous, making this SUV as practical as it is exciting. The 2021 Bentayga on the other hand makes a statement in opulence. Plush with luxurious materials, this SUV features a spacious cabin and excellent cargo space.

Technology & Safety

When it comes to safety and tech features, the X3 M comes standard with a Harman & Kardon music player. Also, standard is smartphone integration in the form of Apple CarPlay. An intuitive infotainment system helps control a variety of cabin functions. Running on BMW’s iDrive software, the infotainment system is intuitive and easy to use. With the 2021 Bentley Bentayga, one gets a host of features including satellite navigation and a premium audio system. However, given the cost of this car, it is clear that these features do not come cheap.


The BMW X3 M has an incredible twin-turbo 3-liter engine that produces 500hp. This allows the X3 M to move from zero to sixty in a stunning 4 seconds. This kind of performance is comparable to many supercars, which is incredible for a car that can just as easily do shopping runs. A finely-tuned suspension ensures that you get a comfortable ride and the cabin keeps off most of the ambient noise. The 2021 Bentayga comes with a turbocharged V8 engine that also makes for blistering speeds. But its size and weight act against it, somewhat reducing its maneuverability.

The Bottom Line

When it comes to performance and value for money, it is clear that the 2021 BMW X3 M is the better vehicle when compared to the 2021 Bentley Bentayga. While the Bentley offers a luxurious ride, the X3 M delivers that and more. This makes the BMW X3 M the clear winner in this comparison.
