For those who want to know, the starting price of the Rolls Royce Cullinan SUV is likely to be $350,000



Yes, Rolls Royce Cullinan shares its look with that of the Phantom, except that the  SUV gets a bolder look. However, it packs a new chassis that is stiffer than the one on the Phantom. Rolls Royce also gave it a bigger air intake and fog lights. The stainless steel grille which is positioned to be high and forward are all hand-polished.

According to the website, one of the interesting elements of the SUV is its pop-up seats that face towards the rear side. These are used when the car is at a standstill and the seats automatically fold back into a compartment that is located on the floor of the boot. There is a partition wall that separates the passengers from the luggage compartment.
