Luxury, exclusive, stunning Pick your favorite words to define the stunning 2020 Rolls-Royce Dawn. The Dawn is basically it’s a Wraith coupe underneath The Dawn is a sheet metal that is curved and swoops which makes it the, according to Rolls (and we wouldn’t have to believe them) as the “sexiest Rolls-Royce ever built.” As with the other models in the lineup it is a stunning car. Dawn offers a luxurious cabin constructed from the highest quality materials, with an alfresco flair which makes it the car of choice for affluent sun-lovers. Although it’s not the most advanced convertible currently available however, its unquestionable elegance along with its road presence and opulence make it extremely desired.
What’s New for 2020?
Apart from an optional dark-brushed metal inlay to the trim inside and the 2020 Dawn is carried over from the previous year unaltered.
Pricing and Which One to Buy
Buyers can design their own Dawn by using the Rolls-Royce Bespoke program, or select from three different collections that the company has come up with. We’re especially in love with the Serenade that combines with a navy-blue exterior and an interior of ice blue leather to give a very nautical look.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
In the back is twin turbocharged 6.6-liter V-12. It produces 563 horsepower which makes the Dawn as fast as it is gorgeous. On the test track at the track, the Dawn was able to reach 60 speed in only 4.3 seconds. It moves smoothly and carefully and also cossets the passengers even while driving through the toughest potholes. The automatic transmission with eight speeds is designed to be quiet. It makes use of GPS to decide when it is the right time to shift gears, based on whether the vehicle is either uphill or downhill or going around corners. If you’re looking for a sleeker and more athletic grand-touring convertible, you might take a look at Bentley Continental GT. Bentley Continental GT, which is both more efficient and more powerful than Dawn and more sporty to drive.
Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG
Similar to the rest of Rolls-Royce lineup The Dawn isn’t very efficient when it comes to fuel consumption. Its EPA ratings for fuel efficiency of 12 mpg for city driving and 18 mpg on the highway and 14 mpg when combined match with those for that of the Ghost sedan, while its highway rating is a bit less than the Phantom’s flagship. We’d like to put the Dawn through our test of fuel economy–who would not want to spend 200 miles along the highway on this luxurious vessel? And if we get the opportunity, we’ll be updating this article with the results.
Interior, Comfort, and Cargo
Doors that hinge to the rear allow an easy access to the cabin, which is able to accommodate four adults. The passengers will be awed by the luxurious soft leather and a plethora of authentic wood trim. The buyers can select massage functions on the front seats as well as the thick floor mats made of lambswool which pamper the feet of all who take a ride. In terms of storage the trunk of the Dawn is quite small for a big car. Blame the convertible top–but it should have enough space to accommodate two carry-on luggage bags.
Infotainment and Connectivity
Touchscreen infotainment comes standard, and Rolls-Royce provides TV tuners as an option to ensure that passengers can enjoy their favourite programs on the move. Navigation with real-time updates on traffic is also available as standard. An 18-speaker stereo system gives sufficient sonic power to block out traffic and wind while driving while seated with your top off.
