The Best Luxury Cars: A List of Top Selling Models
If you are interested in luxury cars, a list of top selling models might help you in your search for the best car for you. Luxury vehicles are always expensive and usually come with the latest hi tech accessories and features that further increase their prices. However, not all luxury cars are created equal; so, here is some information on some the most popular models that might aid in your search.
Entry-Level Luxury Cars
In the entry-level luxury car segment, there are an increasing number of models being offered by many car makers. Entry-level luxury cars are usually those priced below $40,000 and are designed to meet the demands of consumers who want more in terms of features and performance than economy cars can provide.
Simply put, there are very few cars in this price range that offer true comfort and luxury for consumers. However, there is one notable exception. The Hyundai Genesis is a vehicle that won many Car of the Year awards when it was released in 2008. The vehicles excellent build quality, luxurious and roomy interior and ample power plant have been compared to vehicles that usually cost twice as much as the Genesis's $33,000 sticker price. If you're looking for the best value in an luxury vehicle, the Genesis is one car that you'll want to take a closer look at.
Luxury Cars for the Well to Do
If you have about $110,000 to spend, the Audi A8 and BMW 750i are both high performance luxury sedans that provide power and comfort that it's hard to match by many other vehicles in the same price range. For an additional $30,000 or so, Mercedes-Benz (the world's oldest automaker) offers its flagship S Series sedan which many consider to be the benchmark by which all sedans priced under $200,000 are compared to.
In the $100,000 to $150,000 price range, other cars you might want to consider are the Porsche Panamera, Jaguar XJ and the Lexus LS Hybrid. All three vehicles have received rave reviews in the automotive press and are quickly becoming favorites among luxury car enthusiasts.
Exotic Cars: When Price Is No Object
If you have more money than you know what to do with, or simply desire a vehicle that very few people own, exotic luxury cars are just the thing for you. Exotic cars are those that usually cost more than $100,000 and may include hand made vehicles or cars that are offered in very limited quantities. Exotic cars are designed to be fast, luxurious and make owners part of the small exclusive club that can afford these types of vehicles.
Maserati, a popular Italian exotic carmaker, makes luxury cars that are somewhat affordable and in the $110,000 - $250,000 price range. On the other hand, they also produce street legal supercars like the MC12 Corsa that will set you back about €1.5 million, and that is the price you will pay for a used one. New MC12 Corsas are no longer be produced.
If you have to get your hands on a brand new supercar, consider the slightly less expensive Bugatti Veyron 16.4 or Maybach 62S Landaulet. Both are considered to be two of the finest cars ever made and will only cost you $1.7 million and $1.4 million respectively.
