Bentley could take on the Porsche Cayenne or Land Rover as it hopes to carve itself a slice of the SUV market with its EXP 9 F concept headed for the Geneva auto show.

CREWE, England - In August 2013, Wheels24 reported that Bentley's new SUV  was given the green light to be built in Crewe, England.

Styling is set to be derived from the 2012 EXP-9 concept and will borrow elements from its Continental sibling. The new SUV could carry a R2.2-million price tag.

In May 2014, the automaker released a teaser video, giving us a glimpse at the exterior.

A Bentley spokesman said: “The sports utility vehicle will be a thoroughbred Bentley true to the brand hallmarks of luxury, performance, quality and craftsmanship.

"The styling will set it apart from any other SUV and will be true to the Bentley design DNA. It will be the most luxurious and most powerful SUV on the market."

Bentley will begin production of its new SUV in 2016 with a range of engines including a plug-in hybrid option for 2017.
