You may be wondering whether there has been a recent slash in luxury car prices. Well, not really. What you may not realize, however, is that luxury cars are all around you. The reason for this may be how you define what a luxury car is. Your definition would also depend on what luxury is for you, and this is hardly set in stone – at least not anymore.
A good place to start is to look at how luxury cars have changed over time. In the past, a luxury car was defined by certain features, but this no longer seems to be the case. Perhaps the following post will give you an idea of the changes that have taken place, and how much more we can anticipate:
Commentary: What is a Luxury Car These Days?
Remember what a luxury car used to be?
In my youth, luxury cars invited you into a rare air of elegance and grandeur. That meant you sat in a nicely appointed interior and moved with grace along the tarmac. You sat in plush velour or the best leather hides behind a swath of wood trim, elegantly-styled instrumentation, while being entertained by a fine audio system.
Nowadays, a luxury car is all about technology. How much of it can you truly throw into a $40,000-plus automobile? The list of toys on today’s prestige automobiles is unbelievable. If we just start listing out the latest in active safety technology alone, we may forget about the satellite navigation system, intelligent driving aids, central knob controls and smartphone integration inside the cabin. Don’t forget about the airbag count! Read more at Randy Stern…
It’s clear that luxury today is very different from what it was a few years ago. And it looks like it will keep changing.
Perhaps a better approach to defining a luxury car is to have your own list of the must-have features you would want. The following post suggests some things you might consider and include in your list (keep in mind the list is not exhaustive, and is simply a list of possible preferences):
TOP 10 COOL LUXURY CAR FEATURES
10.) BMW’s ‘Gentleman Function’
All it does is let you move the passenger seat from your side, but it sounds like prostitution.
9.) Toyota Century’s cassette deck
I kid you not. You can buy a car in 2014 with a lazy but reliable V12, a cassette deck and lace curtains. Check out the rest of the Century’s features here!
8.) Jaguar Land Rover’s levitating gear knob
7.) Cadillac’s motorized cup holders
6.) Audi’s… ample… seats Read more at Audi Lovers…
You can probably get a couple of the features mentioned above in one car, but with some variation. A caution however, is not to focus too much on these features at the expense of safety. Always ensure that your ideal luxury car has adequate safety features.
Luxury car features are no longer limited to ‘luxury cars’. There are lots of regular cars out there with just the right features to give you the experience you are looking for. Check out the following post for a few examples:
