Rolls-Royce Cullinan has few direct rivals – no SUV is quite as luxurious or expensive. It's a luxury SUV that works offroad too, up to and beyond the needs of most of its buyers. The car's strong platform and suite of high-tech safety and driver assistance systems should offer peace of mind. There's a huge amount of adjustability, especially up front – nobody riding in a CullInan will feel uncomfortable.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.



Sentiment Score[*] 83%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following[***]:
Large, modern SUV that still manages to feel much like its luxury saloon car siblings. The car's large glasshouse allows for an excellent view out, while the traditional Range Rover-like proportions lend a familiar feel. The split tailgate also has more than a hint of Range Rover about it and can even be specified with electrically deployable seats. Buyers can choose from a near-limitless range of leather colours and trim finishes.

  • Huge range of standard equipment
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Excellent infotainment system
  • Lack of standard features


Sentiment Score[*] 94%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following[***]:
The Cullinan is an intoxicating blend of 21st-century technology and the most exquisite hand-craftsmanship. Acceleration from the mighty 563bhp 6.75-litre twin-turbo V12 engine is awesome but balanced. The steering and handling is sharper and more precise than the more stately flagship Phantom limousine.

  • Powerful V12 engine

Sentiment Score[*] 79%
Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following[***]:
From the lustrous stainless steel exterior brightwork including the temple-like grille to the superb detailing, the Cullinan is beautifully crafted. Cabin quality is also superb, again a notch or two above the Bentayga, let alone the Range Rover. There's the option of folding bench seat – a Rolls first – or fixed rear chairs.

  • Effortless on tarmac
  • Impressive off-road capability
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Not the sportiest


Sentiment Score[*] 82%
Reviewers from cnet have found the following[***]:
The EPA rates the Cullinan at 12 miles per gallon in the city, 20 mpg highway and 14 mpg combined. Like with any Rolls-Royce, the sky's the limit in terms of customization. The seats have a massage function, as well as an electronically deployable tray table.

  • Fantastic off-road performance
  • Gorgeous leathers
  • Stylish interior
  • Lackluster infotainment system
  • No Apple CarPlay or Android Auto

Reviewers from cnet have found the following[***]:
The Cullinan's air suspension gets a stiffer default setting for Black Badge duty. The steering is light and effortless, and you can feel every one of the aforementioned 6,000 pounds when you chuck this big boy into a corner. The interior is exquisite to behold and all the materials feel fantastic.

  • Gorgeous interior

  • Super-cool headliner
