With the touch of a fingerprint, Bentley owners and their family members can securely store their valuables in the vehicle

Bentley is introducing a biometric security feature available for its Bentayga SUVs. It’s a fingerprint sensor that gives owners quick access to a die-cast aluminum ‘safe’ between the front seats. Bentley’s bespoke division, Mulliner, developed the security compartment for owners who want to store valuables while their Bentayga is parked at locations like the beach.

The sensor works in a similar way to the fingerprint buttons on smartphones. Bentley’s version allows for the recognition of multiple prints, meaning several family members could access the storage compartment.

The compartment is wired with two USB ports and an auxiliary socket for powering mobile devices. The safe is hidden under the center console lid so it is not only secure, but stealthy.
