When the cheapest car by comparison costs more than $ 160,000, you know it won’t be a battle for value in this segment. However, that is what really happens in this interesting video of Throttle house It has two of the most luxurious SUVs available today. Of course, we are talking about Mercedes Maybach GLS 600 Opposite Rolls-Royce Cullinan.
With the aforementioned price tag of $ 160k, the Maybach is actually cheaper than these two, but let’s be honest – this upgrade isn’t cheap at all. Mercedes GLS Class Lead people. The real question that arises here is whether the $ 330K Cullinan really offers twice the experience compared to the GLS 600. Throttle house The duo, but this time the answer does not come through acting. Instead, these are direct comparisons of what luxury SUVs should do best: pamper their occupants.
We have had our own experiences with each of the SUVs. The great Rolls-Royce made its debut in 2018, and The Complete Cullinan Review In 2019, confirmed as excellent in most cases as an upgrade, the 6.75-liter biturbo V12 produces 563 hp (420 kW), although you get a full 600 hp (447 kW) in the Black Badge version. As for the Maybach, it is the last competitor on the scene. We have a review of GLS 600 The comfort, safety and technology seemed totally epic to me. Its overall design was somewhat tied to the standard Mercedes GLS to our liking, and its 4.0-liter V8 engine with 550 hp (410 kW) was extremely fast, but not impressive.
While our experiences with each SUV are separated by time, the Throttle house The comparison offers some simple notes. As in our experience, they didn’t find a Maybach as distinct and luxurious as the Cullinan, at least in some areas. Rolls-Royce dominated the world of comfort, particularly in its luxurious ride, although the rear seats of the GLS 600 were a better place to fly. Some quality issues were also more prevalent at Maybach, such as orange peel on the exterior trim. On the other hand, Cullinan’s smooth accelerator and brake pedals weren’t adequate for a $ 330,000 machine.
So is Rolls-Royce really twice an SUV for twice the price compared to a Maybach GLS? Cullinan certainly claims to win in some areas, but it is difficult to justify the increased costs based solely on these benefits. On the other hand, we highly doubt the concern of typical Rolls-Royce buyers for details like this anyway.
