2022 Bentley Bentayga Vs. 2022 Rolls Royce Cullinan: What Is The Best Ultra-Luxury SUV To Lease?

If you want to lease an SUV that leaves nothing to be desired, it could only be between leasing the 2022 Bentley Bentayga and the 2022 Rolls Royce Cullinan lease deal.

For those that love to make a statement, leasing either the super luxurious Bentayga or the Cullinan is always the best way. These two super luxurious SUVs seat at the pinnacle of luxury SUVs worldwide. While these two undisputed kings of the road may seem like identical competitors at a glance, they actually have so many traits to help sway shoppers towards leasing one or the other SUV.

Shoppers looking to lease super glamorous SUVs like the Cullinan and Bentayga are always confused about which of these SUVs makes a better deal. So, is leasing the 2022 Bentley Bentayga more rewarding than leasing the 2022 Rolls Royce Cullinan? What really makes leasing the Bentayga any different from leasing the Cullinan?

To help you decide which is best for you to lease, here’s all you need to know about these two ultra-luxurious SUVs.

What’s New

While top luxury SUVs from German brands like the BMW and Mercedes and American brands like Lincoln offer a load of comfort and convenience, they are still very far behind what the 2022 Bentley Bentayga offers.

Luxury crossover SUVs don’t have to be big and sedately styled. Leasing the 2022 Bentley Bantagya offers you an elegant, tasteful, and super luxurious SUV. The Bentayga was first introduced as the first only Bentley SUV in 2016. Four years later, Bentley gave its sole SUV a fresh makeover to keep it going at the top of ultra-luxury SUV class, affording superior exterior aesthetics, more powerful powertrains, and a more sophisticated interior.

For 2022, the Bentley Bentayga comes with a few notable changes. A new sporty-looking S model joins the 2022 Bentayga lineup. While this sporty new S model still possesses all the design detailing of higher Bentayga’s trim level, it is still powered by the base engine’s 542-hp V8. This new model also boasts a sport-tuned suspension, sport exhaust system, and 22-inch wheels to distinguish it from the base model further.

The 2022 Bentayga also receives tech updates and a unique entertainment package. The Mulliner personalization program now offers carbon fiber rims as a new standalone option. Finally, after dropping the plug-in hybrid powertrain from the 2022 Bentayga, shoppers now have to choose from the three powertrains available in three trims of the 2022 Bentayga.

The Bentley Bantayga is not the only SUV sitting at the pinnacle of the ultra-luxury SUV segment. A few years after the Bentley introduced its SUV, the Rolls Royce, renowned for offering some of the world’s finest cars for decades, jumped on the SUV bandwagon. Applying its unrivaled skills in making some of the most desirable cars, the British automaker Rolls Royce introduced its first luxurious SUV in 2019.

The Rolls Royce Cullinan matches the Bentayga in nearly every aspect, even outperforming the Bentayga. The Cullinan affords all the grandeur and opulence common in every car with the spirit of ecstasy flying at the front hood and adds SUV capabilities and practicality.

For 2022, the world’s most luxurious SUV, the Cullinan, comes with no major changes. It is still powered by the familiar twin-turbo V12 that pumps out 563 horsepower and 592 horsepower in the Black Badge version. The transmission is still from an eight-speed automatic that sends power to the all-wheel-drive system.

Powertrain, Transmission, And Performance

When it comes to engine and performance, the 2022 Cullinan doesn’t quite match the Bentayga. While we won’t be seeing a plug-in hybrid powertrain in the 2022 Bentayga lineup, Bentley assures us that this powertrain will be back in the 2023 Bentayga lineup. And given that the plug-in hybrid powertrain is not available in the 2022 Bentayga. The base model is now powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 that churns out 542-hp. If you want more power when you lease the 2022 Bentley Bentayga, the Bentayga Speed will give you just that. The 2022 Bentayga Speed features a monstrous 6.0-liter W12 engine that delivers 626-hp. Regardless of which model and powertrain you go with, all 2022 Bentayga powertrains are mated to a smooth eight-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the all-wheel drive.

Like every other Royce Rolls, the Cullinan sports a V12 engine. The 2022 Cullinan comes with a 6.7-liter twin-turbocharged V12 that pumps out 563 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque. This same V12 is tuned to deliver 592 hp and 664 lb-ft in the Black Badge models. Both models are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, with an all-wheel-drive system standard.

While the Bentley Bentayga is easily the fastest of these two SUVs, moving from 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds with the base powertrain and to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds with the 6.0-liter W12, the Cullinan delivers a more impressive ride quality. Its road-scanning camera helps it automatically adjust the vehicle’s height to compensate for imperfections.

Fuel Economy

If you’re looking for a more fuel-efficient ultra-luxury SUV, it may surprise you to find out that leasing the 2022 Rolls Royce Cullinan offers you just that. While the Bentayga’s 4.0 V8 achieves 14 mpg city, 23 mpg highway, 17 mpg combined, the 6.0 W12 Bentayga gets 12 mpg city, 17 mpg highway, and 14 mpg combined.

The 2022 Cullinan V12 engines earn an EPA estimated 12 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway.

Interior And Comfort

Talk about driving in the arms of the most luxurious car in the world. You have the Rolls Royce. It may not be as fast as the Bentayga, but the 2022 Cullinan offers unmatched comfort. The Cullinan is like nothing Rolls Royce has ever built before. So it comes as no surprise that this is the brand’s best-selling model.

Although the Bentayga may offer better tech features and driver assists, the driving experience that comes with the Cullinan is unrivaled. If you’re looking for a third-row seat, you may be disappointed with the Cullinan as it offers no three-row seats like the Bentayga. However, the Cullinan is bigger than the Bentayga, and the absence of third-row seats means more passenger and cargo space than what you can get from the Bentayga.


The 2022 Bentayga is more powerful, has more seating capacity than the Cullinan, and costs far less than the 2022 Cullinan.

Both the 2022 Cullinan and the 2022 Bentayga seats are at the pinnacle of the ultra-luxury SUV class. You need to know precisely what you want before deciding to lease any of these.
