2021 BMW X6 vs. 2021 Bentley Bentayga


When it comes to a large stylish SUV with a coupe-like feel, the 2021 BMW X6 delivers that and then some. This iconic SUV from BMW checks all the boxes when it comes to speed and handling. Despite its sloping roofline, the X6 still has a roomy cabin and large trunk, making it perfect for family trips or shopping runs. Equally decked out in luxury features is the 2021 Bentley Bentayga. The 2021 edition is just as luxurious as its predecessors and delivers a superb driving experience as well. Though not as sporty as the BMW X6, this is a car that most drivers will be happy to drive, assuming that they can get over the eye-popping price tag.

Design & Style

When it comes to styling, there are few SUVs that match the 2021 BMW X6. The road-hugging body with its beautiful contours stands out anywhere. But most recognizable of the features is the coupe-like rear that skillfully combines the sportiness of smaller coupes with the stance of a large SUV. The cabin is equally well decked out and the instrument panel is well organized. The 2021 Bentayga is equally luxurious with quilted materials and leather all over the cabin. The exterior styling is a little problematic though as it borrows from Bentley’s sedans. While the design theme looks great on the sedans, it somehow does not translate as well in the SUV.

Technology & Safety

Tech features in the BMW X6 include a 12-inch infotainment display that is easy to use and features crisp clear graphics. Also standard in the X6 are features such as smartphone integration, satellite navigation, and much more. The vehicle also comes with a premium 12-speaker audio system as well as phone charging outlets. In the Bentayga, you get a host of features as well including satellite navigation and more.


Under the hood, the 2021 BMW X6 is motivated by a large turbocharged V6 engine with the provision to upgrade to a V8. Both engines deliver superb performance and the X6 feels like a sports car rather than a large SUV. Ride dynamics are equally impressive with the cabin insulation delivering a quiet ride. The Bentayga is equally fast, powered by a turbocharged V8 engine. The large box shape however affects ride dynamics, making the Bentayga somewhat unwieldy around corners.

The Bottom Line

While the 2021 BMW X6 and the 2021 Bentley Bentayga are both superbly engineered vehicles, the Bentley is not a vehicle that is designed to offer thrilling rides. Instead, it is a luxury SUV that is more at home outside an art gallery. The BMW X6 on the other hand delivers comparable luxury with excellent ride dynamics. It also comes at a far less price than the Bentayga, offering more value for money. It is without a doubt the better of the two vehicles.
