2013 Bentley Mulsanne vs. Its Competition

2013 Bentley Mulsanne Mulliner Driving Specification
Nelson Ireson Nelson Ireson Senior Editor

There's really only one alternative in the world of the Bentley Mulsanne, and that's the Rolls-Royce Phantom.

While Bentley and Rolls-Royce were once intimately tied together, recent years have seen fierce competition between the brands, with each carving out its own niche.

For the buyer that would consider either car, both are exquisitely equipped, eminently capable, and exorbitantly priced, though the Mulsanne is somewhat more powerful.

The choice, ultimately, comes down to aesthetics, taste, and preference--just as any good luxury purchase should.
