If you want to take your kids to soccer practice in style or want to turn heads when picking up groceries you may want to consider saving your pennies for a Bentley EXP 9 F.

Bentleys have been a status symbol for decades and their first test-drive into the world of utility vehicles is no exception to the rule. With its solid veneer dash and panoramic glass skylight panel it certainly puts other off-road vehicles to shame. It also features touchscreen 'infotainment' displays for the rear passengers.

While the vehicle is certainly sophisticated and eye-popping, it may not be the most practical for people who want to use the extra space to tote around a bunch of gear or to cart their kids around.

I can hear the screams of horror already as mothers everywhere see their little ones clambering onto the leather upholstery and silk wool mats while covered in mud.
