Rolls-Royce Cullinan arrives in India; INR 6.95 Crore
Rolls Royce Cullinan, the British luxury automaker's first-ever all-terrain vehicle, has been officially launched in India. Priced at INR 6.95 Crore (ex-showroom, India) the new Cullinan is the pinnacle of luxury SUVs in its truest sense and is built on Rolls-Royce's new 'Architecture of Luxury' or aluminium spaceframe platform. While it's not meant to be an off-roader, the Cullinan will offer the ultimate multi-terrain performance that you would expect from an SUV in this class and segment.
Visually, there is no denying that the Cullinan is a part for the Rolls-Royce family. Up front, you have that large and iconic grille with the RR logo on top and the 'Spirit of Ecstasy' hood ornament placed above it. On either side, we have sleek LED headlamps with integrated LED daytime running lamps, and below there are large air intakes and a silver skid plate at the centre. The Cullinan also comes with Rolls-Royce's signature suicide doors, large dual tone 22-inch alloy wheels and plenty of chrome detailing.
The cabin is packed with technology, and you now get touchscreens to display on the dashboard for infotainment, while the rear passengers get high-definition 12-inch touchscreen monitors positioned at the back of the front seats. The system comes with a Blue-Ray player, a digital television, and is assisted by 18 speakers with the next-generation of Rolls-Royce bespoke audio system. The cabin is also draped in luxurious leather, bespoke fabrics and carpets, power seats with massage function, connectivity and navigation, and plenty of metal used to enhance the appeal of the dash and other surfaces. In terms of technology, the Cullinan comes with night vision function, pedestrian and wildlife alert, an Alertness Assistant, 4-cameras with panoramic view, active cruise control, Wi-Fi hotspot, and a head-up display.
The Cullinan is the first three-box Rolls Royce and has two rear benches in the boot which are electrically deployed and extend out of the car and open. The Cullinan has an off-road mode - 'Everywhere', which is activated by the click of a button on the centre console. However, the 'Everywhere' mode can be customised according to the terrain, like - track, gravel, wet grass, mud, sand or snow.
The Rolls-Royce Cullinan is powered by a 6.75-litre V12 engine which makes 563 bhp and 850 Nm of peak torque.
