An oh-so-subtle facelift and a selection of technological and comfort-driven enhancements add a new level of upscale charm to the 2015 Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II that debuted in Geneva. Following a time-tested company formula, this engaging "entry-level" prestige sedan received the kind of tasteful tweaking its maker believes will ensure that the Ghost remains "the ultimate choice for successful entrepreneurs around the world and the calmest place from which to run their successful enterprises on the move."

Exterior changes to the Ghost Series II are confined to its front quarters. Reshaped LED headlamps and new LED running lights join a re-contoured grille, re-sculpted front bumper and elegant chrome accents on the newly-enlarged outboard intakes that feed cooling air to the brakes. Closer inspection also reveals a redrawn "wake channel" in the hood, all of which Rolls-Royce believes impart a more dynamic character to the basic Ghost design. 

Inside, Series II spec takes the Ghost's opulently appointed and still eminently customizable cabin to an even better place. Redesigned front seats add appeal courtesy of power thigh supports while the rears now angle in a bit to foster a lounge-like feel. Restyled instrument graphics, more elegant wood and leather trim options, a new Spirit of Ecstasy rotary controller with character-sensing touchpad linked to a 10.25-inch high-def screen for the Multimedia Interface and Navigation system, Wi-Fi hotspot and a super-lux Bespoke Audio sound system are just a few of the primo creature features now found in what has become an even more serene sanctum.

While the 2015 Ghost Series II will carry on with the same 6.6-liter/565-horspower twin-turbo V12, the 8-speed ZF automatic that backs it now features the same Satellite Aided Transmission tech that was introduced last year on the pricer Rolls-Royce Wraith model. The SAT system uses GPS data to "read" the road ahead and then automatically select the best gear to deliver "an effortless and seamless drive experience" over any type of terrain. Revisions to the chassis on all Series II Ghosts improve ride quality and stability while a new Dynamic Driving Package nets tauter overall tuning as well as more direct steering feedback that improves cornering.
