Luxury cars are not just defined by their extensive levels of technology and refinement; they’re also defined by the comfort they provide and the level of prestige they have. Whether you’re a millionaire who wants to be chauffeured around, a businessman who enjoys cruising around the UK in supreme comfort, or you just want to be able to travel with your family in style, owning a luxury car can be an essential part of life.
In the UK, there are a number of top players in the luxury car market, including BMW and Mercedes. In the past, most luxury cars were saloons, but this is no longer the case. While many of the old styles are still available, there is now a much bigger choice available for you to choose from, so here are some of the best ones you could choose to buy.
Mercedes-Benz S-Class Saloon
Many car manufacturers around the world have tried to imitate the Mercedes-Benz S-Class saloon. This car joined the luxury car market a number of years ago now, but it’s still as popular as ever. Although these features are common in the majority of cars now, the Mercedes S-Class was the first-ever car to have anti-lock brakes and airbags installed.
Today’s S-Class is a high-tech masterpiece. It is one of the only cars available that has the ability to optimise your quality of ride by reading the road surface ahead. You could choose to purchase a near-silent petrol version, a diesel model, or an economical hybrid version.
The interior of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class could rival a private jet for opulence and design. If it’s not luxurious enough for you, then why not consider its sister model, the Mercedes-Maybach S? The Maybach model costs approximately £100,000 more than the S-Class, but it is even more opulent.
Just remember, whatever luxury car you choose to buy, you’ll need to ensure you’ve got the correct insurance in place. Unfortunately, luxury car owners have a stigma attached as they have been found to be among the most dangerous drivers. If you don’t want to be tarred with the same brush and get hit with sky-high premiums, you should consider installing a black box and look for a black box insurance policy.
The latest fourth-generation Range Rover is the best version yet. It has an aluminium monocoque chassis and an unashamedly luxurious agenda. This amazing car has an extremely spacious interior and it exudes quality and luxury. The latest generation of Range Rover is available in six or eight-cylinder petrol or diesel options. However, the luxury model we’re most interested in is the plug-in hybrid P400e which qualifies for company car tax at the lower rate of 18% BIK.
Jaguar’s futuristic range-topping saloon remains one of the best luxury cars available in the UK. This car comes complete with full LED headlights, J-blade daytime running lights, a detailed sat nav and subtly honed suspension settings.
The interior of the Jaguar XJ has a handmade feel, with its stitched spongy leather seats, yet it still offers all of the high-tech you’d expect from a luxury car model. The latest version of the XJ comes complete with Jaguar’s InControl Touch Pro infotainment system which is easy to use and super clever. It also offers Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity.
We all like to enjoy a bit of luxury from time to time, and what better way than purchasing a luxury car? The best luxury cars provide you with comfort, power and equipment beyond what you’d expect in less prestigious vehicles, and the extra quality you get can be seen in the price tag. If you can afford a luxury vehicle, then there’s no better way to travel. Which one would be your favourite?
