All-new 2018 Rolls Royce Phantom review sings its praises

Looks like the Phantom is back at the top of the pile

Rolls Royce had been making the previous Phantom for nearly 14 years, which is why this all-new one should reflect the progress that the industry has seen in that time. And according to this review by Autocar, it genuinely does, even if it misses out on some newfangled (mostly active safety) tech that can be found in more mainstream cars.

The Phantom has always been marketed as the pinnacle of not only ridiculously expensive automobiles, but luxury in general - it’s an ambassador of opulence which in its latest generation tries to move the game on all while retaining the traits that made it such a world-wide hit.

The latest one is even visually an evolution of the previous incarnation, but it really doesn’t have to be revolutionary as it still has to offer the same blend of qualities none of which have necessarily improved through the passage of time. Progress is still there in every aspect of the Phantom, though, and owners of the outgoing model will surely note the differences brought by this new model.
