2023 Bentley Bentayga vs. Rolls-Royce Cullinan: Luxury Amenities

In addition to offering more power and capability, the 2023 Rolls-Royce Cullinan interior provides an extensive range of options and personalized luxury features for your next ultra-luxe SUV. While either the Bentley Bentayga or Rolls-Royce Cullinan will offer you full leather upholstery and premium trims, only the 2023 Cullinan has:

The 2023 Bentley Bentayga has no trouble making a lasting impression, but those who’ve also seen the 2022 Rolls-Royce Cullinan will doubtlessly find that the Bentley leaves something to be desired. Don’t just take our word for it, however. In their review of the Bentayga, the editors at Car & Driver note that “the rear seat doesn’t feel as lavish as that of the Bentayga’s key rival—the Rolls-Royce Cullinan.” We can’t help but agree—and this is just one of the advantages that you’ll uncover in this year’s Bentley Bentayga vs. Rolls-Royce Cullinan matchup.

Cullinan vs. Bentayga: Interior Quality and Luxury

Where luxury is concerned, there’s no comparison: the Cullinan offers a cabin of a higher caliber. Here’s a closer look at what we—as well as independent reviewers—have noticed:

  • Both models offer impressive leather upholstery and genuine wood trim, but only the Rolls-Royce has plush lambswool carpeting.
  • The Rolls-Royce Cullinan comes complete with a 1300-watt 18-speaker Bespoke Audio System. The 590-watt 12-speaker audio system in the Bentley just doesn’t measure up.
  • Although the latest Bentayga now offers an optional wheelbase extension, seven extra inches still won’t allow it to go head-to-head with the Rolls-Royce. With a 130-inch wheelbase, the Rolls-Royce more easily absorbs bumps and dips in the road—and that’s before you take its standard Air Suspension into account!
  • Practicality might not be the most important element in your Rolls-Royce Cullinan vs. Bentley Bentayga matchup, but it’s still important to note that the Cullinan has a larger cargo area, offering up to 21 cubic feet with the rear seats upright. The Bentayga, with 17 cubic feet, is slightly less accommodating.
  • The Cullinan offers an optional rear seat entertainment system that adds a 12-inch screen to the back of both front seats. The rear seat entertainment screens in the Bentayga measure just 10.2 inches diagonally.
  • The Cullinan offers some options and features for which the Bentayga has no rebuttal. These include iconic amenities like the Starlight Headliner, as well as exclusive connectivity features like the Whispers social network.

Don’t forget: the Rolls-Royce designers and engineers at Goodwood can customize just about every aspect of the Cullinan SUV’s interior. Ready to build and order a model of your own? Start by exploring the full range of Rolls-Royce Cullinan colors from your home in Pasadena or Burbank.

Cullinan vs. Bentayga: Power & Performance

The Cullinan isn’t just more luxurious than its rival. As standard, it’s also more powerful. The Bentayga now comes standard with a 543-hp twin-turbocharged V8—which is fine, unless you were expecting something more. Only the Cullinan truly lives up to its nameplate’s reputation by offering a standard V12 engine with 563 hp. Upgrade with the Black Badge Cullinan, and you’ll enjoy up to 590 horsepower on your drives through Los Angeles and Glendale.

Reserve Your Cullinan at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Pasadena!

The Bentley Bentayga is a fierce rival, but at the end of the day, its best is far from sufficient to unseat the reigning champion of SUV luxury: the one and only Rolls-Royce Cullinan. Now that you’ve had a chance to compare the two models on paper, don’t wait to reserve a new Cullinan of your own.

Cullinan vs. Bentayga: Interior Quality and Luxury

When exploring luxury SUVs such as the Cullinan and Bentayga you’ll want to examine every detail. Considering you’ll be inside of the vehicle often, you’ll want to ensure a comfortable and entertaining driving experience no matter how far the commute. Here’s what you can expect inside each model:

Interior Upgrades and Technologies

  • The Cullinan has an 18-speaker Bespoke audio system standard, which is an upgrade to the Bentayga’s 590-watt 12-speaker audio system.
  • Both models offer a standard touchscreen interface, however, the Cullinan allows you to adjust feature settings using an innovative and intuitive console-mounted rotary controller.
  • Though the Bentayga also offers a rotary controller it doesn’t offer the same functionality. These buttons and touch controls can feel a little outdated by comparison.
  • With a new Rolls-Royce Cullinan, you’ll also be connected to Whispers, one of the world’s most exclusive social networks. Bentley doesn’t offer anything comparable.

Interior Dimensions and Comfort

  • The Rolls-Royce Cullinan and Bentley Bentayga offer standard seating for up to five, but the Cullinan offers a bit more space measuring up to 210 inches from bumper-to-bumper and 85 inches from door-to-door.
  • The Bentayga measures just 202.4 inches by 78.7 inches. Compared to the Cullinan, the Bentley SUV’s cabin is bound to feel more than a little constraining.

The best part about a high-end luxury model is that virtually every interior element and material can be customized to suit your liking. Learn more about the Rolls-Royce interior options, colors, and more before you get the process started on your favorite Rolls-Royce model.
