Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV: 5 things you need to know

Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV

Rolls-Royce have created their first SUV the Cullinan. The first all-terrain SUV offers luxury off-road travel for the first time. This SUV is made for the high-end luxury market and would end up in places like the Middle East and China. This car brand is synonymous with prestige and luxury so you can expect nothing but the finest quality maters and a very comfortable drive. Looking at the car initially it does not really look that great it looks like a Rolls-Royce phantom on stilts.

5] The front is big and bulky with the prominent grille, the slim headlights placed either side and the angel placed at the top. The car sits on 22-inch wheels so it looks solid and well built. Overall not very attractive from the front. This beast is 5.3m long, 2.1m wide, and 1.8m tall, and it weighs in at 2,660kg. It’s only 2mm longer than a Ghost, it also sits 80mm lower than a Range Rover long wheelbase.

4] The rear of the car looks much better and elegant. The side of the car has smooth contours that compliment the window and roof structure above. Doors still operate like the standard Rolls-Royce doors. The rear of the car looks okay but a little boxed. The simple flatish design of the rear looks dull the only thing than makes it look good at the rear tail-lights and the twin exhausts that really lift the look of the car.

3] The engine is a reworked version of the Phantom’s twin-turbo, 6.75-litre V12. The V12 has been specially tuned to deliver 850Nm of torque from 1,600rpm, while peak power is rated at 563bhp. Rolls-Royce doesn’t quote a 0-60mph time, but the top speed is 155mph. To ensure the Cullinan has appropriate road manners, there’s four-wheel steering as well as the four-wheel drive.
2] Without a doubt the interior is going to be something special. There is going to be a range of options to make this car yours from the finest leather and materials to the best technology and drive options. There’s 555-litres of space, rising to 600 litres with the luggage cover removed, with a maximum load length of 2,245mm.There’s the choice of a folding rear three-seat bench for a more family-friendly format and a maximum luggage capacity of 1,930 litres or two more luxurious fixed chairs. And as this is very much a driver’s Rolls-Royce; a functional dash layout features a symmetrical facia and simple connections plus Rolls’ version of BMW’s excellent iDrive infotainment system. The very latest technology is all present and correct including night vision with pedestrian and wildlife detection, adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning systems.

The instrument dials have beautiful graphics, the power reserve gauge is present (no rev-counter in a Rolls), and the central multimedia display is now a touchscreen. There’s a vast suite of assistance systems, including a four-camera system with panoramic and helicopter view, and an industry-leading hi-res head-up display.
