    Rolls-Royce has updated the Phantom sedan with many subtle tweaks that are aimed at keeping it competitive against rivals from Mercedes-Maybach and Bentley. 

    •  New Phantom gets cosmetic updates
    •  New bamboo-derived fabric available for rear seats
    •  Continues with the 6.75-litre V12 engine

    New Rolls Royce Phantom: what all has changed? 

    The main tweaks include a slightly reworked front grille, which features a more prominent badge, a darkened finish and is now illuminated, like on the smaller Rolls-Royce Ghost. A new, polished horizontal line between the daytime-running lights has also been added and gives the car a “new and assertive modernity, reflecting its driver-focused character”, according to Rolls-Royce.

    The Phantom’s lights also get an upgrade, with laser-cut, star-shaped motifs added for extra night-time presence. There’s a new set of stainless steel wheels too, with triangular details, but the 1920s-style disc wheels are also available.

    Inside, a thicker steering wheel has been fitted but the rest of the cabin remains unaltered. However, owners can opt for a new silver-white interior colour scheme called Phantom Platino, which brings a bamboo-derived fabric for the rear seats, while leather is used for the front seats.

    No other modifications have been made, so the Rolls-Royce Phantom continues with the same 6.75-litre, twin-turbocharged V12 engine that it has used since its arrival in 2017.
