There is no doubt the 2017 Bentley Mulsanne exceeds the strictest standards for craftsmanship and luxury with its old-world charm mixed with modern amenities and features such as a feature-rich content, serene and smooth ride quality, impeccable interior, prodigious thrust, and modern electronics. Its release date should be expected before the fall of next year.
Few vehicles can match the ultimate luxury prowess the Mulsanne manages to offer. Its superiority is even made better considering its bargain starting price. And for the chosen few who can afford it, rest assured, they’ll have plenty of value.
Everything in the vehicle ranging from its exterior cues to the material detail of the interior surface convey a sense of style, distinction, and wealth. The interior is impeccable, the exterior stately, and the performance is just out of this world. This big Bentley simply makes the occupants feel special in ways that cannot been penned down on paper.
The level of performance and luxury is even taken higher with the newest version. The Mulsanne Speed version, in particular, offers distinction in almost every face of its creation. But rest assured, even in its basic form, the Mulsanne still continues to be an outstanding vehicle.
There are no losers in this segment. All vehicles here provide a level of refinement seen nowhere else in the entire automotive industry. The level of engineering, craftsmanship, and refinement is simply unparalleled.
Rivals here include the Rolls-Royce Phantom, BMW 7 Series, the Rolls-Royce Ghost, and the Mercedes-Benz S600 and S65 AMG trim models. While these vehicles can command a higher MSRP, they guarantee their users of latest luxuries and comfort amenities, not to mention a higher performance. But if you’re looking for some British pomp and circumstance, we highly recommend the 2017 Bentley Mulsanne.
