Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Nobody on a budget buys a new Rolls-Royce, so the fact that the Cullinan’s quarter-of-a-million-pound starting price makes even the Bentayga look cheap is unlikely to put people off.

Similarly, insurance and servicing costs will be huge, and it averages fuel economy of just 18.8mpg in official tests, but of more relevance to potential buyers is likely to be the Bentayga’s superior range between fuel stops.

Overview

Its ride isn't perfect, but the Rolls-Royce Cullinan is in most respects the ultimate luxury SUV that it was designed to be – with a price to match.

  • Effortless performance
  • Wonderfully opulent interior
  • Superb refinement
  • Unsettled low-speed ride
  • Hugely expensive to buy and run
  • Controversial styling
