Upcoming Rolls Royce crossover will compete with Bentley Bentayga, the latter’s first SUV in its history as well.

Rolls Royce execs did not use the term crossover or SUV, but mentioned that the new variant will be a high-bodied car based on an all-new aluminium architecture, with the capability to cross any terrain. Still, the model is promised to be as luxurious, reliable and comfortable as any Rolls Royce is known to be.

The firm says that the development of this all-new model was commenced after its discerning customers urged them to do so. Stressing on the motto of Rolls Royce Motor Cars of designing cars to fulfil the utmost desires of customers and to strive on the thirst to innovate, the company says it has challenged to show the world a different and exceptional new car.

Further, the footnote of the open letter contains the famous quote “When it does not exist, design it” by Sir Henry Royce.
