2016 Rolls-Royce Phantom vs. Its Competition

2016 Rolls-Royce Phantom
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

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 is noticeably sportier and has a heavier VW influence than the Phantom.

The new Mercedes-Maybach S600 might also be a close rival, and is more loaded with up-to-date technology.

But the Maybach is visibly an S-Class, which won't sit well with those who don't want to be associated with mere $100,000 vehicles.
