Bentley Bentayga makes the perfect Valentine partner

Big luxurious SUV tops exclusive Carbuyer Valentine’s Day poll

Taking your significant other for a romantic picnic in the Bentley Bentayga makes the perfect Valentine’s Day trip, according to big-hearted Carbuyer readers.

The big, luxurious SUV is the ideal vehicle for the trip thanks to its go-anywhere ability, plus the availability of the Mulliner Picnic Hamper. Designed by Linley, the £22,000 set includes the finest crockery, cutlery and glassware that fits snugly in the Bentayga’s boot.

Romantic motorists placed the Bentley picnic just ahead of taking a Morgan Plus 8 to country house hotel, making for a quintessentially British outing. The Morgan would look right at home parked outside any of the UK’s most romantic retreats.

While 19% of readers favour that step back in time, 18% would prefer to take the thoroughly modern Tesla Model S for a trip to see the Northern Lights, taking advantage of the large glass roof to see the sights in comfort.

An Alpine skiing trip, taking advantage of the Audi R8’s quattro four-wheel-drive system, was the fourth most popular choice, followed by a shopping trip to Milan in a Ferrari GTC4 Lusso.

But just 10% of those polled said a weekend glamping trip in a Volvo XC90 would fit the bill.
