2020 Rolls-Royce Phantom Review: The Zenith Of Status

The 2020 Rolls-Royce Phantom is not a car for the faint of heart, nor the light of wallet. Its exorbitant price is balanced out by opulent luxury and peerless status. While it has loads of power on tap, courtesy of a massive V12 engine that thrums out a hefty 563 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque, this is not to enable high-performance driving. Instead, it makes the Phantom sedan an effortless luxury 4-door cruiser that will cart you around town in sublime style. This focus is furthered by the spacious rear seats with almost every comfort known to man installed as standard. Though it may compete with the likes of the Bentley Mulsanne and Mercedes-Maybach S, the 2020 Phantom totally outclasses any competition. This vehicle may cost its weight in gold, but it's worth every penny.

2020 Rolls-Royce Phantom Changes: 🚙What’s the difference vs 2019 Phantom?

Rolls-Royce doesn't have to do a lot to stay at the top, but the Phantom sedan gets a few updates to make it just that much better. These include retouched exterior styling in the form of new all-aluminum space frame architecture. This has the added benefit of increasing body rigidity, which should improve safety. The V12 gas engine under the hood is now twin-turbocharged, instead of being naturally aspirated, and the driver-assist suite has been modernized with lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and pedestrian detection. The interior displays have been enlarged and the high-definition color screens complement the refined interior perfectly.

Pros and Cons

  • There is no higher level of luxury
  • Handcrafted perfection with impeccable reliability standards
  • More power on tap than ever before thanks to twin turbochargers
  • Sublime ride comfort with almost no noise
  • All modern comfort, convenience, and safety features
  • Endlessly customizable and tailored to each buyer
  • Almost unsurmountable price barrier
  • Enormous, heavy, and ridiculously fuel-hungry
  • Not so much beautiful as it intimidating

Verdict: 🏁Is the 2020 Rolls-Royce Phantom a good car?

There is no comparing the Rolls-Royce Phantom to any other car, because there simply is no real comparison. Therefore, it has to be judged on its merits alone. The only real deterrent is the buy-in, but at nearly $500,000, that's a pretty big obstacle to overcome. If you somehow manage to get behind the wheel of one of these beauties, you won't be disappointed. The Phantom is velvety smooth on the road, and it has plenty of power for getting around. However, it's not a particularly engaging driver, though it has improved over the years. Like many a Rolls, this is a car to be driven in. The back seat is a place of pure luxury and pampering. There is loads of room, heating, massaging, and infotainment screens.

Nobody would dare crash one of these absurdly expensive machines, so there is no safety rating or safety review of the 2020 Rolls-Royce Phantom. That said, it comes with every possible advanced driving aid, and the increased rigidity of the body should make it quite durable. While we would never suggest blowing half a mil on a car, no matter how much we may love them, if you really wanted to, it would be money well-spent.
