What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For The ultimate status symbol, the Phantom provides superlative handling and unrivalled luxury

Against Some may think this a vulgar behemoth and, therefore, hate you

Verdict The Rolls-Royce badge says it all - this car maker is still king of the luxury market

Go for… Class

Avoid… Tack

Rolls-Royce Phantom Saloon
  • 1. The Phantom has rearward-opening coach doors, which allow occupants to get in and out with dignity
  • 2. It’s not hand-built, like its rival the Maybach, but fit and finish are on a supremely high level
  • 3. After three years, the car will be worth 65% of its original price, but that’s still a lot of cash to lose
  • 4. Expect no more than 14mpg on an average run. With a heavy right foot, that will drop to 7.6mpg
  • 5. The air-sprung suspension allows for unflustered and precise cornering as well as a comfy ride
