2020 Rolls-Royce Cullinan Review

  • Stratospheric levels of luxury
  • Excellent isolation from road and wind noise
  • Effortless acceleration
  • Unlimited customization opportunities
  • Less than elegant proportions
  • Prohibitively expensive, even for the class
  • Additional rear seating options
  • Part of the first Cullinan generation introduced for 2019

If, like us, you thought that Rolls-Royce might be immune from the allure of SUV sales, you'd be wrong. In 2019, Rolls-Royce bent to the trends and introduced what is, without question, the most luxurious SUV ever built. Named after the largest gem-quality rough diamond ever found, the Cullinan is outfitted in the finest tradition of British opulence. Controversy comes in equal measure thanks to the Cullinan's exterior styling and extraordinary road presence. But as the saying goes, "When you've got it, flaunt it!"

Luxury can also be found under the hood of the Cullinan, where you'll see a 6.75-liter turbocharged V12 engine. The 571-horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque is sufficient enough to propel this more than 6,000-pound SUV with authority. Inside, the Cullinan shrouds its occupants in silence. It's difficult to fathom just how quiet and refined the Cullinan really is.

The Cullinan doesn't have many natural predators that don't already share the Rolls-Royce nameplate, but the closest is the Bentley Bentayga. Like other Bentleys, the Bentayga prioritizes driver engagement a bit more than the Rolls-Royce. The Bentayga is quite happy to be tossed around like a much smaller and sportier SUV. But if conspicuous luxury is all that will do, there is only one SUV.

Which Cullinan does Edmunds recommend?

It's your money. But if we were allowed to spend your money, we'd stick to the "regular" Cullinan. To this we'd add the Bespoke Audio option for the 16-speaker, 1,300-watt audio system, ventilated front seats and the sumptuous Sanctuary Seats for rear passengers. Springing for the Driver Assistance Systems option seems reasonable since it includes parking assist, full-speed adaptive cruise control and night vision. Nearly everything else, and we do mean nearly everything else, can be done to personal taste.

Rolls-Royce Cullinan models

The Rolls-Royce Cullinan comes in two trim levels: Cullinan and Black Badge. All Cullinans are all-wheel-drive, use an eight-speed automatic transmission, and draw power from a 6.75-liter twin turbocharged V12 engine with two available levels of output. There are a myriad of stand-alone options, encompassing everything from an upgraded audio system to a gold-plated hood ornament, as well as endless options for interior and exterior color combinations. Highlight features include:

Rolls-Royce Cullinan vs. the competition

Rolls-Royce Cullinan vs. Bentley Bentayga

The Bentayga represents the closest competition, at least in SUV form, to the Cullinan. It offers a more engaging driving experience with surprisingly good handling and a selection of powerful engines. It's far from cheap, but the Bentayga represents a better value and starts about $100,000 less than the Cullinan.

Rolls-Royce Cullinan vs. Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II

Perhaps the only real competition for a Rolls-Royce is another Rolls-Royce. The Ghost Series II offers the buyer more conventional styling with the same stratospheric levels of luxury available in the Cullinan. As a result, the Ghost represents a more discreet expression of wealth and power.

Rolls-Royce Cullinan vs. Mercedes-Benz G-Class

If ostentatious styling and flagrant exhibitions of money are your thing, as well as only being seen in vehicles with a hyphenated name, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class will be right up your alley. It lacks the luxury, prestige and gravitas of the Cullinan, but in return it's dramatically less expensive.

Should I lease or buy a 2020 Rolls-Royce Cullinan?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
