Practicality & boot space Rating

3.5 out of 5

One of the biggest choices facing Cullinan buyers is what interior layout to pick. The first is the more conventional Lounge Seat interior; designed for five people and with the first folding rear seats in a Rolls-Royce. The alternative is the Individual Seat option, with four individual seats providing the ultimate in luxury travel. The rear seats recline and flank a centre console containing a drinks cabinet, whisky glasses and decanter, champagne flutes and fridge.

Rolls-Royce Cullinan interior space & storage

While the Lounge Seat interior has folding back seats, these are controlled electrically via a panel in the boot, folding completely flat or dropping in sections. The manufacturer even suggests the carpeted seat backs can be used as an "occasional table on which to rest your precious personal items" when flipped forwards.

Boot space

Boot space measures 560 litres, with a further 40 litres available if the parcel shelf is removed. In this guise, the rear seats sit above the bottom of the boot, but if a large (1,886-litre), flat loading bay is required, the boot floor can be raised electrically to prevent any snags.

As a mark of Rolls-Royce's astounding attention to detail, the Cullinan is said to be a 'three-box' SUV, with a separate engine bay, passenger ecosystem and luggage compartment; with the latter placed behind a glass partition wall. This also prevents a hot or cold gust of air when the boot is opened to the elements.
