2015 Bentley Mulsanne vs. Its Competition

2015 Bentley Mulsanne
Nelson Ireson Nelson Ireson Senior Editor

There are really only two alternatives to the Mulsanne, and one of them is a long-time rival: the Rolls-Royce Phantom.

With equal, if different, grace, style, and comfort, the Phantom is perhaps the flashier of the two hyper-luxury sedans from British brands.

Ultimately, however, it's a matter of preference--either one will offer supreme comfort, quality, and bespoke craftsmanship.

Mercedes-Maybach's new S Class-based flagship is the relative newcomer (if such can be said of a new model from a century-old brand); it's a comparative value, but it also leverages the much more common (and therefore, perhaps, less desirable) S Class exterior and chassis to achieve its world-class executive transport.
