Things are changing pretty fast in the modern automotive industry. In just a couple of years, most supercar manufacturers released their SUV models. We saw SUV models from Bentley, Rolls Royce, Lamborghini etc. Ferarri and Lotus are about to do the same. Therefore, the latest rumors suggest that the famous French carmaker will do the same. Of course, we are talking about the 2022 Bugatti SUV. This would be one of the most luxurious SUVs ever made, while many expect it will also be the fastest SUV in the world, a model that will dethrone the Urus. At this point, the company is still quiet on this matter, so take the following paragraphs with a reserve.
2022 Bugatti SUV Design
In terms of base design characteristics, things are still a little bit unclear. As you know, Bugatti is part of the VW Group, so it seems logical to see this model based on other luxury SUVs, such as Bentayga and Urus. However, other experts believe that the company wants to make something really exclusive, so there is a chance to see this model built from scratch. Of course, many design solutions would be borrowed from the Chiron, both in terms of mechanics and aesthetics. Obviously, this won’t be a mid-engine car, but rather a model with F4 layout.
Styling and Interior Design
Of course, one of the strongest points of the new model will be its styling. Naturally, we count on Bugatti’s typical design approach. We are about to see a classic Bugatti styling, which would be pretty similar to the one that characterizes Chiron. Of course, the new model would feature notably higher ground clearance. Despite the crossover layout, we count on a pretty sleek profile and have no doubt that the new model will feature excellent aerodynamics.
On the inside, the new 2022 Bugatti SUV will be all about luxury. We expect a lot of influence from Chiron in terms of the dashboard design, which also means a lot of customization options. Still, the obvious difference will be in size and layout. As a crossover, this model should come with two rows of seats and a quite decent cargo volume. Naturally, we count on loads of the latest tech goodies.
2022 Bugatti SUV Engine
Without any doubt, this will be one of the most interesting parts of the new 2022 Bugatti SUV. Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is that monstrous 8.0-liter W16 engine, but we don’t expect to see that engine under the hood of this model. This engine works great in a mid-engine car, but it would extremely expensive to modify it and put it at the front. Therefore, one of the possibilities is to see a 6.0-liter W12 engine from Bentayga. This engine puts out around 600 horsepower, but we have no doubt it would get a significant boost, so a max output will certainly go over 700 horsepower. Some sources suggest we might see some form of electrification as well. A hybrid powertrain would definitely have a highly positive effect on overall performance. All in all, we expect from 2022 Bugatti SUV to dethrone Urus in terms of acceleration and top speed.
2022 Bugatti SUV Release Date and Price
The 2022 Bugatti SUV is just a rumor, but various reports suggest we might see it sometime in about two years. If it arrives, there is no doubt it will extremely expensive. Some sources suggest a price tag around 400.000 dollars. Key competitors will be models like Rolls Royce Cullinan, Bentley Bentayga, Lamborghini Urus etc.
