Space & practicality

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 adults have an enormous amount of space to stretch out. You have the choice of a lounge bench that accommodates three, a lounge bench with more occasional middle seats or individual rear seats strictly for two.

For those who need even more room, there’s a long-wheelbase ‘EWB’ version, and if you find knee room is tight in that, you should probably be in the Guinness Book of Records if you aren’t already.

After a stressful day at Harrods you might find the boot a little small given the overall size of the car. It’s 460 litres, which is good for a family car, but looks small next to that of an S-Class or Range Rover. Still, at least it’s a nice square shape, perfect for designer shopping bags, so you can make the most of the space.

Again, if you spend enough with Rolls Royce, they can probably fix this issue, but as standard the rear seats can’t be adjusted or folded down to open up the boot. That said, the thought of lugging garden waste down to the tip in a £300k car seems a little comical.
