2015 Rolls-Royce Phantom vs. Its Competition

2015 Rolls-Royce Phantom
Nelson Ireson Nelson Ireson Senior Editor

There isn't much left at the top end of the automotive spectrum when it comes to big sedans and luxury coupes.

The Bentley Mulsanne is the closest, although it's not quite as imposing as the Roller.

One interesting tidbit about both Bentley and Rolls-Royce is that both have long British heritage, and both are now owned and controlled by German automakers—BMW in Rolls's case, and the VW Group for Bentley.

Mercedes discontinued the Maybach brand a few years back, but it is planning a sort of super S-Class that should play in this space once again, or at least near it.
