2020 Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge SUV

The dark side of the Rolls-Royce SUV's power is the 2020 Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge. The primary consideration isn't a performance boost; it's a black look. Although the base exterior color can also be chosen. 

The BMW X7 platform is not used by Rolls-Royce Cullinan, but the car uses a Rolls-Royce Phantom aluminum platform. 

Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge Exterior and Interior

X7 and Cullinan look very similar in their angular shape. The 5.34 m long Cullinan features a rugged radiator grille with black outer proportions and angles from Emily's profile for the Black Badge. 

Also, extra black highlights on the radiator grille, window panes, exhaust cover, and 22-inch wheels appear with the Black Badge.

To make the back slightly slimmer, the rear end is somewhat tilted. First of all, with a key, you can lower the Cullinan by 4 cm. 

With all doors opening independently and no particular order required, the rear door operates in the reverse direction. Coincidentally, the first Rolls-Royce with an alternative trailer clutch is the Cullinan.

The cab architecture is classic vertical, with lots of wood on request and round nozzles for ventilation. It also has a vast steering wheel that looks like an older Rolls-Royce. 

The starry sky consisting of 1,344 fiber optic lights is a particular highlight in the most real sense. If you watch it long enough, sometimes you'll see shooting stars.

The primary material in the interior, unfortunately, is animal leather. Rolls-Royce hasn't posted any alternative works here yet. 

In response to a proposed order for a more humane version, Rolls-Royce suggested that the animal-free seat covers should first undergo a crash test. As a result, it will cost you an additional half a million euros. 

The mobile is connected via Bluetooth, but Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are not available. Overall, at this price point, the absence of those features makes no sense for a car in 2020, as it does not fit the current needs.

In the back, you have a three-seater or two-seater bench. In the middle, there is also a cooling compartment. You have a lot of room in the rear because the Rolls-Royce Cullinan dimensions are very long. But there is no long luggage or third-row seats. A good floor mat makes the atmosphere more relaxed. 

Optionally constructed glass walls minimize interior noise between the cabin and trunk and prevent sand or dust from entering from behind into the interior. The glass walls will also prevent the rear seats from folding up. 

You can choose the folding variant, carried out electrically from the back or storage space, for further use. Two picnic seats can be removed electrically and accessed manually as an alternative for € 14,000. If needed, the entire unit can also be separated and removed. The storage space is from 560 liters to 1930 liters.

Engine, Dimension, and Performance of Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge

The engine is a 6.75 l V12 producing 571 PS or 600 PS in the Black Badge version, paired with all-wheel drive, an 8-speed automatic transmission. 

Rolls-Royce Cullinan can accelerate from 0-100 km / h in 5.2 / 4.9 seconds. You have to spend at least 320,000 euros for the Cullinan and 375,000 euros for the Black Badge. 

If you want to complement it with other options, such as picnic seats, you will have to pay around 391,000 euros.

Dimensions:
  • Length x Width x Height: 5.34 m x 2.00 m x 1.83 m
  • Wheelbase: 3.30 m
  • Empty weight: 2,660 - 2,753 kg
Adaptive air suspension, like adaptive roll stabilization, is standard. The chassis has been pre-adjusted for conditions up to 100 km / h with support for camera information. For more incredible speed and agility, Rolls-Royce Cullinan is designed with all-wheel steering. 

The rear wheels turn slightly to the front wheels under 60 km / h and parallel to the stabilization above 60 km / h. The Rolls-Royce Cullinan looks a little more agile at low revs than it really is. 

Rear-axle steering represents a shorter wheelbase, so the Cullinan is more comfortable than most Rolls-Royces to maneuver, park and exit. 

Of course, there is still no pleasure in driving agile. Far ahead, the cylindrical hood protruded. The 2.7-tonne load can't just be changed, despite having modern chassis technology. 

In this case, when you turn or brake, you feel the impact, so the Cullinan feels like a boat. This sensation is often affected by the soft air suspension but still fits the car. 

The air suspension on the Black Badge is slightly tighter but thinner. Besides, you won't feel any bumps; the 22-inch rim makes it a lot more different.

But at higher speeds, noise insulation in a cab is excellent. The air with heavy suspension triggers the Cullinan to transition to the rear axle, and the V12's force starts. 

The 6.75-liter engine's tone is relatively controlled. The consumption is 14 l / 100 km when driving usually. But if you also accelerate at high speeds, consumption will, of course, increase. 

Conclusion

The Cullinan feels heavy in particular. Apart from the current wheel technology, it also provides a very sturdy ride behavior and excellent sound insulation. 

However, the lack of mobile connectivity, no alternative to animal leather, high fuel consumption, and increased costs tend to be unreasonable. In fact, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan can't be as good as other premium SUVs, which sells for a quarter of the price despite its lagging features.
