Luxury vehicles are more popular than ever before. Credit low lease deals, changing buying habits or an increase in choice, but it has never been easier to enjoy a higher echelon of automobile. Indeed, virtually every body style and vehicle type is available with a luxury badge — and those that aren't are still typically available with the vast majority of luxury features. However, what should really signify a great luxury vehicle is what isn't obvious by looking at a spec sheet or a list of features. It's characteristics such as build quality, design, ride comfort, sharp handling, performance, engineering sophistication and the execution of those features. The vehicles we recommend below excel in those areas.
