Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

The Phantom has rear-hinged rear doors, to make it easier to get in and out. They open wide giving superb access to the rear seats and, once inside, two adult occupants will have an enormous amount of space to stretch out. You have the choice of a three-seat bench or a couple of different two-seat layouts, including one where the rear seat folds into something resembling a bed.

We tried a four-seater with the rear entertainment package and found that space was not an issue, even with a tall driver at the controls. Electric adjustment allows those in the back to recline for more comfort, while heated, ventilated and massaging seats ramp up the luxury further. There’s a large armrest between yourself and your passenger that opens to reveal controls for the rear seat entertainment, and our test example even had a fridge with a pair of champagne glasses.
