Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

It may be the smallest car in the Rolls-Royce lineup, but the Ghost is still enormous by most standards. At 5549mm long, it is bigger than the BMW 7 Series, Mercedes S-Class,  and even the Bentley Flying Spur. So inside, you will not be surprised to hear, there is a lot of room. No matter where you’re sitting, whether you’re driving or being driven, it feels very open and spacious.

There is a choice of five-seat or four-seat layouts, and all models have rear-hinged doors – that can be opened and softly closed from the inside at the press of a button. And should you want even more space to stretch out in the rear seats, a longer Extended Wheelbase version is available with an extra 170mm of added between the front and rear axles.

The boot is fittingly massive, too, but while the load bay is very long, access is hampered by a comparatively narrow opening. So while the Ghost will certainly carry your golf clubs or holiday luggage, you may wish to augment it with another car if you need to shift bulky furniture. Plus, if you specify a fridge to sit between the rear seats, it eats into boot space. The agony of justifying that option is one of the first-world problems faced by the Rolls Royce Ghost buyer.
