Bentley Bentayga – British automaker Bentley is a renowned company producing luxurious and sporty vehicles. Cars like the Mulsanne, Continental GT and Flying Spur are quite popular in the affluent circles and the automaker had to enter the SUV market looking at the demand for this body type.

Rolls-Royce Cullinan – Rolls-Royce has always made some uber luxurious cars like the Phantom, Ghost and Wraith and with every luxury automaker taking their turn at making SUVs, RR wasn’t one to be left behind so they launched the Cullinan. The fascia looks similar to the Phantom but the side and rear have a boxy design which isn’t to everyone’s taste. There is no denying that the Cullinan boasts of impeccable road presence and looks and feels very rich. The cabin is loaded to the brim and the massive 6.75-litre V12 engine now produces 600 HP and 900 Nm in the Black Badge trim which also adds some exclusive bits on the outside and inside. The Cullinan is priced at Rs. 7.50 crores (on-road, Mumbai) and the Black Badge costs upwards of Rs. 8.20 crores.
