There is very high competitiveness in the modern automobile industry from the development of high quality spare parts to the increased engine performance. The continuous discovery in new technology leads to innovation and the production of highly advanced vehicles which has taken the automobile industry to a new age. Vehicles with better practicality, performance, luxury and safety features have stormed the market and car lovers have a lot to choose from. Let us compare the Maybach 62 zeppelin (2010) to the Rolls-Royce phantom (2011)
They are both equaled in luxury features possessing sun roofs, power seats, keyless entry, and standard leather interiors.
CRASH TEST RATINGS
Both equal at a rating of 5.5 each
The Rolls-Royce phantom is priced at $385,000 with a 4 year warranty making the Maybach 62 zeppelin more expensive at $509,250 with a four year warranty.
The Maybach 62 Zeppelin overtakes the Rolls-Royce phantom with a standard power outlet which is used to charge gadgets. This feature is absent in the Rolls-Royce but they both possess standard navigation system and A/C for hot summer days.
The Maybach also takes this round with an outstanding acceleration of 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds and a top speed of 155mph while the phantom lags at a 0.6mph in 5.7 seconds with a top speed of 150mph.
Both vehicles are well equipped with standard brakes, good number of airbags, rear brakes, and child door locks but the Rolls-Royce is deficient of a road side assistance system which gives Maybach the advantage.
This round most definitely goes to the Maybach 62 Zeppelin which holds 631 hp@ 4,800rpm, 5 number of gears, semi-automatic transmission, and a twin turbo charge air compressor which is absent in the Rolls-Royce while the phantom has a lower 453 hp@ 5,350 rpm, 6 number of gears and an automatic transmission.
When it comes to entertainment they both measure up to standards with high numbers of speakers, standard CD player, satellite radio, Auxiliary audio input, and subwoofer. They both offer quality entertainment system but getting it on phantom would cost more.
