Why Are Rolls-Royce Seats So Special?

Phantom seats

Rolls-Royce has some of the best seats in the luxury car world.

If you’ve spent time inside a Rolls-Royce motor car, you already know that the cabin of this British cruiser is a luxurious home away from home – with every luxury at your fingertips – and that the spine-supporting seats have a lot to do with its appeal.

Although every model in the Rolls-Royce lineup is incredibly rewarding to drive and be driven in, those who purchase Rolls-Royce vehicles typically prefer to enjoy the ride. For this reason, the designers at Goodwood have left no element unconsidered. Especially the seats.

Here’s what you should know before you step into the cabin:

Rolls-Royce vehicles are hand-made, and their seats benefit from an attention to detail that no assembly line can match.

Rolls-Royce seats are finished with the finest hides that money can buy, and you can select from an extraordinary range of single and dual-tone colorways. If you can dream it, the Rolls-Royce engineers can bring it to life!

It’s not uncommon to see Rolls-Royce back seats that offer reclining and massaging capabilities, so even your longest drives will feel like miniature getaways in their own right.

Rolls-Royce models like the Phantom even offer an extended wheelbase, and that means they offer legroom that virtually no rival can match.

Rolls-Royce seats deserve plenty of praise for being spacious and comfortable, but it’s impossible to describe their appeal in full without mentioning some of the features that you’ll have at arm’s length: Soft-touch finishes, crystalline controls, a center console with room for champagne, and even a starlight headliner—these are just a few of the niceties that await those seated in the cabin of a Rolls-Royce.

Plus, you can even request that your Rolls-Royce seats be finished with custom features or details such as an exclusive color or faux leather if you prefer vegan fabrics.

And the seats are just the beginning.

Take, for instance, the Rolls-Royce Wraith. Its back seat design brings to mind a yacht on the open ocean with its Bookmatched Canadel paneling, a contemporary open-grain veneer, along with plenty of air vents on the center stack for circulation. The coach doors offer easy access in the back while massaging seats in the front offer luxury when you’re in the driver’s seat.

But it’s the Rolls-Royce Phantom seats that set the new standard for modern luxury with an entirely isolated rear cabin.

This Privacy Suite features electro-chromatic glass that shifts from transparent to fully opaque, along with Rear Privacy Curtains for extra peace and quiet in big cities such as Los Angeles. Built-in intercom and privacy aperture allow for easy communication with your driver whenever you want.

The Rolls-Royce Ghost rear seat configurations are available in both standard and extended wheelbases. The extended wheelbase adds extra legroom, and the optional Serenity Seat promises an experience akin to a first-class jet ride. And when it’s time to celebrate in Burbank, the built-in champagne chiller is nestled right in the rear seat section.

The Rolls-Royce Cullinan rear seats are lifted slightly higher than the front seats, and for good reason. The elevated seating allows passengers to get a better view out of the panoramic roof above. Plus, you can take your pick of two configurations: a three-person bench for families or a traditional 40/20/40 split with seating that folds flat electrically.

The Rolls-Royce Dawn seats feature buttery-soft leather, real wood trim, and plenty of customization options to really make the cabin your own.

Rear-hinged coach doors and spacious legroom are perfect when you’re sitting in the back, while options like massaging seating and lambswool floor mats are comforting touches when you’re at the wheel.

So no more counting the minutes until you get there. When it comes to a Rolls-Royce and its sumptuous seats, the ride is as good as the destination.
