Report: Rolls-Royce still considering SUV crossover to combat Bentley’s attempt

Rumors about a Rolls-Royce SUV crossover have been in the works for quite sometime. With details hinting that BMW might be introducing a large seven-seat crossover to meet the growing demand, such a venture could allow Rolls-Royce to follow suit since the British automaker has exclusive access to Bavaria’s motoring parts bins.

Additionally, Bentley has already confirmed their entry into the ultra-luxury crossover segment quite some time ago. So it was only a matter of time until Bentley’s nemesis, Rolls, was going to follow suit.

“We are intensively thinking about entering the SUV segment,” Rolls-Royce’s CEO, Torsten Mueller-Oetvoes told AutomotiveNews.

Should Rolls-Royce continue with their SUV crossover idea, a projected sticker price of around $240,000 is expected.

“The SUV segment is very interesting,” Mueller-Oetvoes concluded. “It has been incredibly stable during the crisis, and I think a luxury niche will develop.”
