2017 Rolls-Royce Phantom vs. Its Competition

2017 Rolls-Royce Phantom
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

From this rarefied vantage point, the Rolls-Royce Phantom truly only competes with the Bentley Mulsanne.

But while the Bentley is still very much a driver's car, the Phantom is meant to be ridden in.

Either way, both models show that their passengers (or drivers) have truly made it—even if they've earned their money the old fashioned way.

Mercedes-Benz has positioned its Maybach line as a division of its namesake brand rather than a standalone brand.

It seems to be working, as the Mercedes-Maybach S600 is every bit a flagship, even if it gives up a few opulence points to the Phantom.

Quick Specs
With a price tag to match, the Rolls-Royce Phantom soldiers into its last year before a redesign as desirable as ever.
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class lineup is more diverse than it's ever been and is still the benchmark by which all full-size luxury cars should be measured.
The new Extended Wheelbase model only makes the 2017 Bentley Mulsanne more of what it was meant to be: a heroically impressive hyper-luxury limousine.
