SAFETY | 9 out of 10
backseat occupants sit well back in lounge-shaped seats alongside the C-pillars rather than next to the doors
It doesn’t come as a surprise that neither the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) nor the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has crash-tested any models from the 2010 Rolls-Royce Phantom range.
Inside the Phantom, Phantom Coupe, and Phantom Drophead Coupe, drivers and passengers are provided the latest in safety gear. Cars.com notes standard safety features include “side-impact airbags, side curtain airbags, active front head restraints, antilock brakes, electronic stability system, traction control and break-resistant glass.” An electronic parking brake and park-distance control sensors for the front and rear of the Phantom are also standard equipment.
Cars.com also claims: “To aid in safety, privacy and social interaction, backseat occupants sit well back in lounge-shaped seats alongside the C-pillars rather than next to the doors.”
Even though front and rear cameras are offered as an option, the Phantom range surprisingly does not include the very latest safety features, like lane-departure warning systems, laser-guided cruise control, or blind-spot detection systems.
The size and heft of the 2010 Rolls-Royce Phantom guarantee strong safety credentials; it's packed with advanced safety technology as well.
