Obtain the midlevel SE trim. The SE includes a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t bother about a stiff ride, though the SE continues to be relatively comfortable on the road. The SE can also be a great bargain considering most of the safety and tech equipment you obtain for the money. Finally, the SE is available with a wide variety of options, to help you pick and choose those are right for the budget.
Crossover SUVs could be all the rage, but there’s still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the Rolls Royce Phantom Concept. Coming off a redesign just last year, the Rolls Royce Phantom Concept is a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with a lot of standard safety equipment and plenty of options to select from.
As has been the case for some time, you may get the Rolls Royce Phantom Concept with a four-cylinder engine or perhaps a better V6, or you may get the miserly Rolls Royce Phantom Concept Hybrid. On the highway, the Rolls Royce Phantom Concept is comfortable and compliant. Rolls Royce Phantom Concept also offers two sporty versions that infuse the Rolls Royce Phantom Concept with a little bit of extra personality. Inside, the Rolls Royce Phantom Concept offers a simple yet feature-packed cabin, particularly if you go with one of many upper trim levels. There are many of options to pick from over the way.
The Rolls Royce Phantom Concept is as competent because they come. It’s well-priced overall, and modern feature content causes it to be supremely an easy task to drive. If you’re looking for something with a little more class and space when compared to a small sedan, the Rolls Royce Phantom Concept might just be the sedan for you.
The Rolls Royce Phantom Concept is the base trim. It comes with a relatively light load of features that includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every Rolls Royce Phantom Concept Safety Sense, which really is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On another rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and an automobile alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You are able to consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with many different additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a bigger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Most of the features on the upper trim levels may be put into the reduced trim levels as options. Other notable options include a sunroof, a JBL speakers coupled with a built-in navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the Rolls Royce Phantom Concept stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the back seat is simple to fold down to fit longer items. You will find enough cabin storage options to create most people happy. Loading a car seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good but not stellar. The forward center console bin is great for concealing items but includes a hard, slippery floor, so they really slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is just a decent size, and you can find modest door pockets in leading and rear that are great for small water bottles only.
The Rolls Royce Phantom Concept features a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles allow it to be simple to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s super easy to mount a car seat, with obvious and easily accessible lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s room enough so that the front seat need not be scooted all the way forward.
