Follow Joel[embedded content] We saw the new 2017 Bentley Bentayga SUV in the metal; Rolls-Royce showed us its “sexiest” vehicle ever; and Jaguar entered the SUV game. It’s the Week in Reverse, right here on Motor Authority.
The world’s fastest, most expensive and most luxurious SUV has arrived, and we saw it in the metal for the first time. It’s the new 2017 Bentley Bentayga, and if you have at least $230,000 it can be your ride to the country club next year.
Jaguar—finally—entered the SUV game this week with its new 2017 F-Pace crossover. A stylish, supposedly dynamic family hauler, it could quite possibly be Jaguar’s best-selling vehicle the second it hits the market next year.
Infiniti has made its next vehicle in its revamped lineup official: the new 2017 Q30. It’s a compact hatchback aimed directly at the Audi A3, Acura ILX, and other luxury compact cars. Whether the five-door design will resonate with buyers is yet to be seen.
After its online reveal, Rolls-Royce rolled out the new 2017 Dawn convertible at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show. Claimed to be the automaker’s sexiest vehicle, it’s quite the looker in person. Going on sale in early 2016, the Dawn will likely cost more than $300,000.
Audi surprised everyone with the new 2017 S4 at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show. Things get interesting under the hood with a single turbocharger replacing the last-generation’s supercharger, and power is sent to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission only. That’s right. No dual-clutch or manual transmission is available.
