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.

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.
