Many car lovers worldwide know that luxury cars aren’t just a status symbol, but an overall assessment of an individual’s technological position in society. Luxury cars are all about comfort achieved through various features such as electric adjustment, massage options, reclining seats, and in-car entertainment features with high-end audio and video systems that can be easily customized per your needs. Let’s look at some of our favorite luxury cars in the market today.
- Bentley Flying Spur.
Bentley motor cars have a trademark of providing their users with ultimate comfort. And the Flying Spur is popularly known as the brand’s ‘small’ four-door limousine. It uses an extended version of the Continental GT coupe’s platform and comes with the choice of a V6 plug-in hybrid, a 4.0-litre V8, or a 6.0-litre W12 engine. No matter which engine you choose, this two-tonne-plus saloon delivers a sub-five second 0-62mph time. The W12 offers the highest top speed at 207mph.
The Fying Spur has more to offer than what appears on the surface. It is incredibly well insulated and refined. So much so that even the roar of the twin-turbo 6.0-litre W12 engine is merely an underlying soundtrack. Staying to the Bentley name, the Flying Spur is finished inside with the finest wood and leather trim. Thus blessing the occupants with the most luxuriously comfortable feeling even at high speeds.
- Mercedes EQS.
Moving on to one of the most renowned brands in luxury cars, Mercedes. After launching its all-electric EQS, Mercedes has set higher standards in the market. Now with the newcomer Lucid Air, those standards have gone up by a notch. The EQS delivers everything that comes under luxury.
From being spacious and comfortable to looking ultra-modern with its tech features. The EQS has some very cool specifications, such as a Burmester surround sound system, active ambient lighting, remote parking, massaging seats, and even the brand’s Air Balance system, which features an air ionizer and diffuses fragrances around the cabin. The car also comes with an excellent battery range with a huge 107.8kWh battery and aerodynamic design; both the 450+ and 580 4MATIC variants of EQS are capable of well over 400 miles per charge.
- Mercedes S-Class.
Mercedes may have decided to up its game by announcing the EQS, but the luxury cars brand has been serving a magnificent experience to its occupants for a long with the S-Class. While driving around in the S-Class, you almost feel like you’re floating through thin air as the vibrations through the pedals and steering wheel are non-existent. The S 500 4MATIC version uses a 3.0-litre, six-cylinder petrol engine, producing 429bhp – which is good enough to propel it from 0-62mph in 4.9s. Even the 282bhp S 350 diesel is capable of a decent 6.4s sprint time, and a 155mph maximum speed.
- Rolls-Royce Ghost.
In terms of luxury and style, the Rolls Royce Ghost doesn’t lack either. Two necessary components are borrowed from the previous model: the Spirit of Ecstasy that sits atop the bonnet and the umbrellas hidden within the doors. The Ghost draws inspiration from Rolls-Royce’s latest aluminum chassis, calling it ‘architecture of luxury – resembling the flagship Phantom model closely, the Ghost is an outrageous five meters long and 2.5-tonnes in weight, so it could hardly be called understated. Thankfully, its 6.75-litre V12 petrol engine produces 563bhp, which allows a 0-62mph time of 4.8s and a 155mph top speed.
- BMW 7 Series. (OUR CEO Dr. Amarendra Bhushan Dhiraj‘s favorite car.)
The BMW 7 series has a reputation for trying to stand up to the standards set by the Mercedes S-Class. Ever since, the brand has launched a brilliant line-up of petrol and diesel engines, the option of a plug-in hybrid, handling that’s more akin to 5 Series than a limousine, and a host of hi-tech gadgetry, the understated 7 Series is still a great choice.
In addition, BMW offers a classy option to choose between standard and long-wheelbase versions, which provides improved rear legroom and is an excellent choice for chauffeurs. The most recent 7 Series comes with a more tapered design and is significantly lighter than the car it replaces, thanks to the use of carbon fiber in its construction. The modification is great for energy conservation, but the rapid 740i and 750i models handle surprisingly well for such a large car.
