If you want an excuse not to buy the Mulsanne try this. It doesn’t fit in my garage. At 220 inches long you definitely need a palatial parking place to go with your palace home.
However, if you are in the market for a car fit for royalty, the Mulsanne is far more forgiving than it might appear on paper. Admittedly, I’ve had to make a few adjustments to my parking procedures at home but otherwise, it’s a relatively straightforward drive.
Sitting in the driver’s seat for the first time, there’s no baffling array of buttons to master; the seat adjustment is as easy as any other Volkswagen Audi Group car; even the £21k upgraded infotainment system requires very little thought.
While last week I was reaching for the manual of the Outlander PHEV every five minutes, I feel perfectly at home in the Bentley. Explain that one Mr Mitsubishi?
