So, the Wraith will be only available as one trim with the Coupe body shape. Prices for the Rolls-Royce Wraith start at $332,000 and that can rise pretty sharply once you start ticking the options checklist. In the base form itself, the Wraith is pretty well specced and rides on 20-inch wheels and other features like Adaptive xenon headlights with automatic high-beam control, power-closing rear-hinged coach doors, adaptive air suspension, satellite-controlled transmission, cruise control with upcoming curve detection, surround-view camera system, the 10.3-inch center display screen and a Spirit of Ecstasy Inlay Monitor lid.

Rolls Royce also offers plenty of optional features which let a customer customize this vehicle as per his/her liking.

2020 Rolls-Royce Wraith Engine and Performance

8.2/10

The engine of Rolls-Royce Wraith isn’t generally the most interesting thing to talk about but it is the Wraith we have with us here and this happens to be the most enthusiastic driver’s car Rolls-Royce has ever made. So under the hood, they have plonked their most powerful motor, a 6.6-liter twin-turbo DOHC direct-injection V12 gas engine. Essentially this is the same engine you’ll find in the Ghost but instead of producing 563 horsepower, here it is rated for nearly 60 more at 624 horsepower and 605 pound-feet of torque. 

The whole experience of driving a Rolls is extremely surreal and you literally don’t care about how many ponies that engine makes until you push the pedal really hard and that’s when the beast in front of you awakes and pulls you with an incredible wave of torque. This motor is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission which is a torque converter unit so expecting blazing fast shift times from it is stupidity but still, it is pretty quick for its standards and manages to keep you in the power band always. The Wraith is expected to do a 0-60 MPH sprint in 4.4secs and for a car that weighs nearly 5400 pounds, that is incredible.

The Wraith is not really the least powerful car here but thanks to its weight it is the slowest one here, but we are pretty much sure that people buying the Wraith won’t use it on drag strips. But just for the sake of numbers, the least power, and lightest Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is quite the fastest car here which does the 0-60 MPH sprint in under 4 secs. Also, the Wraith is Electronically limited at 155 MPH while the other two can go much much faster than that.

How well does the 2020 Rolls-Royce Wraith handle?

All the Rolls-Royce Wraith are built on the same platform which is used by Ghost and the same architecture as well so they are inherently rear-wheel-drive ones which gives them an edge over agility. Because of its weight, the Wraith feels pretty sure-footed going over corners or turns and it doesn’t fishtail at all even after being just rear-wheel-drive. Now, this is not the most powerful or fastest luxury coupe of all time but who cares about all that is in a Rolls-Royce, it just doesn’t drive, it glides over the road.

Also, the Wraith comes with Cruise control with upcoming curve detection which essentially means that Wraith is equipped with some sort of witchcraft that detects the coming corner well in advance and then tells you which is going to be the optimum speed and optimum gear to pass through the corner. And surprisingly, this actually works really well. The adaptive air suspension makes the car drive pretty firmly when in the sportiest settings and that actually makes the Wraith pretty confident to drive. 

2020 Rolls-Royce Wraith Braking Performance

The 2020 Rolls-Royce Wraith is a pretty heavy car and with a V12 pushing out nearly 624 horsepower, it needs pretty serious braking hardware to make all that mass slow down. So the car comes equipped with 14.7-inch brake discs at the front while at the back there are 14.6-inch rotors helping the car to slow down. For a car that weighs nearly 5400 pounds, it stops just under 110 feet from 60 miles per hour and that is pretty quick.

While Rolls-Royce is the most expensive and heaviest car here, surprisingly it comes with the smallest braking discs among all. And that is not really very good. On the other hand, the Bentley Continental comes with the biggest steel discs ever fitted to any production car ever which is a very tall claim in itself. The Aston Martin Superleggera is also equipped with pretty massive discs and they are not some normal brake rotors, these are carbon-ceramic brake discs that look just so good.

2020 Rolls-Royce Wraith Fuel Economy

4.0/10

Fuel economy figures are not really what you’d like to talk about while driving a 2020 Rolls-Royce Wraith as that V12 is a very thirsty motor. EPA has rated the Wraith for 12 miles to the gallon in cities, 18 MPG on the highway, and just 14 MPG for the combined driving cycle. And not just that, with a tank capacity of just 21.9 gallons, the real-world range of the Wraith is just over 300 miles which are pretty concerning if you’re on a grand tour.

One can’t or shouldn’t complain about poor fuel economy while riding in utmost luxury and all the comfort on their side. These vehicles are designed to offer great comfort with superior safety of the occupants and that’s the reason behind their heavy structure, plus the great powerhouses under their hood drop the fuel economy and make these vehicles hungry for more fuel. Roll-Royce Wraith Coupe behaves just like the description and claims the worth economy in the competition while Mercedes-AMG S 63 Coupe uses every drop of fuel and claims around 20 mpg in the combined condition, it the best luxury in the competition which consumes fuel efficiently. Aston Martin DBS Superleggera isn’t bad either, it at least comes close to the 20mpg mark of Mercedes and claims around 17.6 mpg while Bentley Continental GT is the same as the Rolls-Royce. 

2020 Rolls-Royce Wraith Interior

9.5/10

Rolls-Royce is synonymous with luxury so it’s pretty much expected that the interior of the 2020 Wraith is going to blow everyone’s mind away. Essentially it has the same dashboard layout as the Ghost but because the Wraith is a sports coupe rather than a sedan, the seating position is a bit low for that tucked-in feeling and that makes for a pretty sporty stance. Everything that can be touched or felt is either covered with leather, wood, or aluminum and one can’t find a single piece of trim inside the cabin that feels cheap or out of place. 

The stitching is all done by hand and even then it is perfectly immaculate and consistent. The cabin has an artisanal feel and an aesthetic that's simultaneously old-world and modern. The center stack is adorned with a pair of sleek, circular air vents, and the front seats have a massage feature that can soothe sore muscles on long drives. Everything about this cabin feels opulent and uber-luxurious and it is literally a privilege to be inside this space.

The Wraith is the most luxurious and spacious car here and there is simply no argument against that. It has the most spacious front and second-row seats and also is the most comfortable one. On the other hand, it is the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera which is not really very luxurious if you compare it to others. Some of the standout interior features are as follows:

  •  Four-zone automatic climate control
  • Wood accents
  • Heated front seats with massage functions
  • Heads-up display
  • Available Starlight headliner

What’s there to keep you entertained?

Sitting on top of the dashboard is a 10.3-inch infotainment touchscreen that runs a slightly modified version of BMW’s iDrive for Rolls-Royce. It is among the best infotainment systems in the business and comes with pretty much all the features that a car of this big price tag should come with. You have in-built navigation, Apple Carplay, wireless phone connectivity, in-car wifi hotspot, and all other things you can think of. Some of the highlights of the infotainment system are as follows:

  •  Surround-view camera system
  • 3-inch center display screen
  • Navigation system
  • 18-speaker sound system with satellite and HD radio
  • Digital music storage
  • USB ports

2020 Rolls-Royce Wraith Exterior

9.0/10

The 2020 Wraith carries the classic Rolls-Royce design upfront while the rear gets a sloping roofline to justify its coupe design. It is maybe the best-looking modern-day Rolls-Royce and a wet dream for most of us. At the front, the Wraith is pretty identical to the Ghost and has a lot of styling cues taken directly from the Ghost. The Wraith is built on the same architecture and platform as the Ghost, so it is pretty much understood why it looks a lot like its four-door sibling. 

The suicide doors with rear-mounted hinges do look very cool once they open up and they are big enough to make sure the passengers at the back can even get in and out rather comfortably. This is a pretty huge car and it actually shows as when you are driving around in the car, it makes even SUVs look tiny in front of it. The road presence is just massive and wherever you go, it is going to turn a lot of heads towards it.

Talking about the numbers, it is evident here as well how big the Rolls-Royce Wraith is. It is the biggest and heaviest car here, while the Aston Martin is pretty much the smallest one. Surprisingly the lighter Mercedes Benz S 63 AMG Coupe is actually bigger than the heavier Bentley Continental GT and that shows how well built the S-class is. Some of the standout exterior features are as follows:

  •  Pantheon grille
  • 20” or 21” wheels with self-righting wheel centers
  • Illuminated Spirit of Ecstasy
  • Galvanized Steel/Aluminum Panels

2020 Rolls-Royce Wraith Safety

8.0/10

The Rolls-Royce Wraith is just too expensive and exclusive for either of the crash test agencies to smash on the wall. Because when you make a car worth nearly 350,000 dollars, then it is pretty much expected that it will have all the modern safety features that one can think of. Thankfully, the Rolls-Royce Wraith does have a long list of both active and passive safety equipment to help in any unforeseen scenario Some of the standout safety features include:

  • Night Vision
  • Rollover protection bars
  • Tire pressure monitoring system
  • Stability control
  • Back-up camera
  • Parking aid
  • Lane departure warning system
  • Rolls-Royce assist emergency SOS

2020 Rolls-Royce Wraith Competition

9.0/10

2020 Rolls-Royce Wraith vs 2020 Mercedes Benz S 63 AMG Coupe

The Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG Coupe is hell a lot cheaper than the Wraith but that doesn’t make it a cheap car. The S-Class is essentially the best luxury car in the world and that is for a very good reason. Now, 2020 is going to be the last year for both the current generation Wraith and S 63 AMG coupe and with the future being uncertain, they stand on the very same boat. For that matter, the Mercedes offers exceptional value for money if we pit it against the Rolls-Royce but then again the Wraith is not just a car, it’s like a private luxury yacht on road.

2020 Rolls-Royce Wraith vs 2020 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera

In terms of money and exclusivity, it is only the DBS Superleggera that can give a tough competition to the Wraith. Both being British, these cars are among the best intercontinental cruise missiles that money can buy. While the Rolls-Royce is leaps and bounds ahead of the DBS Superleggera in terms of Luxury, on the other hand, the Aston Martin looks absolutely stunning and is pretty damn quick and also a slight bit more fuel-efficient in case you are concerned about polluting the atmosphere. 

2020 Rolls-Royce Wraith vs 2020 Bentley Continental GT 

The rivalry of Rolls-Royce and Bentley is quite legendary and we all know how big of competitors they are. So while the Bentley is considerably cheaper than the Wraith, it is still pretty much if not more than equally luxurious and special as the Rolls-Royce. Also, the Bentley is a hell of a lot faster than the Wraith, thanks to its lightweight chassis and a better gearbox. Though both the cars are pretty evenly matched, it’s the Rolls-Royce that will make you feel more special being inside the car while it’s the Bentley that will be good on your wallet.

2020 Rolls-Royce Wraith Final Verdict

2020 is the last year for the production of the current generation Wraith, and all the Rolls-Royce cars are supposed to be upgraded to an all-new architecture that currently underpins the new Phantom and Cullinan and upcoming Ghost. But we don’t know when the next generation Wraith will arrive so if you want an uber-luxurious performance yacht on wheels, and you have a couple of hundred thousand grand lying around, then the Wraith is just the perfect buy for you.
