Bentley built in Bentayga fingerprint scannerMarch 19, 2018
Bentley built a fingerprint scanner into the storage compartment, located on the central tunnel of the Bentayga SUV. This decision, the manufacturer believes, will allow car owners not to worry about valuable items left in the cabin. For example, clocks.
The compartment was developed by the Mulliner division – it is a cast aluminum box. It contains two USB ports, which allow you to charge smartphones inside or outside the compartment. In the memory of the biometric sensor integrated in the cover, you can simultaneously record several fingerprints.
The Bentley Bentayga SUV is equipped with a four-liter twin-turbo V8 engine (550 and 770 Nm), a six-liter W12 (608 and 900 Nm), and a 4.0 V8 diesel engine (435 horsepower and 900 Nm). In addition, in Geneva, the brand introduced a hybrid modification with a power plant from the Porsche Panamera E-Hybrid.
The hybrid system included a navigation system that calculates the optimal use of ICE and electric motor for each route, as well as a home charger designed by renowned industrial designer Philippe Starck.
