How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

“distinct exterior styling”

more leather hides and matching pieces of wood than you'll find on a herd of cattle lost in Sequoia National Forest
Edmunds

Could there be a more inviting cabin?
Motor Trend

The 2010 Rolls-Royce Phantom, Phantom Coupe, and Phantom Drophead Coupe are unchanged for the latest model year, but they did undergo a slight refresh last year that included redesigned wheels, grille, and front bumper, while the interior received new reading lamps. Cars.com claims the “new front bumper and smaller stainless steel grille give the Phantom a more streamlined, contemporary look.” Motor Trend finds that the Drophead Coupe is “the first production Rolls-Royce that breaks from the traditional Parthenon-inspired grille shell. It's curved, angled rearward, and finished in brushed stainless steel instead of polished.” They also say, “In the tradition of the finest 1930s-era coachbuilt automobiles, the Drophead boasts rear-hinged, front-opening doors in the name of style and to make entry/exit a more elegant proposition.”

Edmunds finds that in terms of the Phantom’s exterior styling, “no other automobile boasts the unique style, grandiose dimensions and sterling reputation of the Rolls-Royce Phantom.” Autoblog agrees, saying the “big, bold, and sublime Phantom Drophead Coupe is Rolls-Royce's halo car.”

In the dark, the interior of the Phantom becomes more impressive. Autoblog states that there are 1,600 fiber-optic lights in the headliner of the 2010 Phantom. “At its lowest setting the headliner is twinkle, twinkle little star. At its highest setting, there's a lot of light. Its soft light, not like the klieg lights in some other luxury cars, and probably bright enough to read the paper by.”

Motor Trend asks: “Could there be a more inviting cabin?” Answering their own question, they report “everything you see and touch is wrapped in sublime leather (more than 450 pieces, stitched together by real people with sewing machines), lustrous wood of varying finish, and thickly chromed metal." Edmunds finds “the inside of the Rolls-Royce Phantom is even nicer than might be imagined, with more leather hides and matching pieces of wood than you'll find on a herd of cattle lost in Sequoia National Forest.”

Conclusion

The styling of the 2010 Rolls-Royce Phantom is unique in that it blends old-world British charm with contemporary design.
