Great Luxury Models From Our Neighbors Across the Pond

The United Kingdom has one of the oldest royal families in the world, and its automakers tend to like making models that are fit for a king or a queen. In fact, the late Queen Elizabeth II loved her Range Rovers. Made by the famous Jaguar Land Rover Company, the Range Rover has staked its claim as one of the most rugged yet luxurious SUVs available today. Imagine having a four-wheel drive Range Rover that could go anywhere, off-roading into the countryside, in one of the most luxurious interiors ever designed for a vehicle of its type.

Two brands that are synonymous when it comes to luxury are Rolls-Royce and Bentley. These two automakers have been going head-to-head for years, each trying to outdo the other when it comes to luxury excesses. From their world-famous hood ornaments to their classic lines, Rolls-Royce and Bentley have been building some of the most famous luxury vehicles for years now. When it comes to super-luxury, few other automakers can compete with these two brands. Their spacious interiors feature the finest leather seats with real wood and chrome trims that seem more fitting for a British sitting room than the passenger compartment of a motor vehicle. Still, these super luxury models deliver in ways that can be beyond the unexpected.

Performance Luxury Models From Germany

While Italy may be more famous for its race cars, nothing can compare to the performance luxury models offered by German automakers such as Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Audi, and Porsche. These are models that grew out of Formula One road races and off-road rallies, taking the expertise developed and applying the lessons to luxury cars designed for suburban streets and highways. This means you can drive a four-door sedan or an SUV with the heart of a performance sports coupe. Whether you are looking at a Porsche Cayenne, a BMW M series sedan, Audi SUV, or Mercedes-Benz S-Class, you are going to get a vehicle that has a leather-clad interior with room for 5 or more passengers with the ability to provide speed and acceleration unmatched in the luxury vehicle class.

If your goal is to get a used luxury car that handles like a sports car, then your best bet is to find a used BMW, Audi, Porsche, or Mercedes-Benz. These brands wed cutting-edge technology with high-performance powertrains and luxurious interiors. While they can’t match the excesses of a Rolls-Royce or Bentley, they won’t cost half as much and can deliver unmatched driving thrills.

Domestic Luxury Models That Are Closer to Home

For over 100 years, Ford and General Motors have been at the forefront of the luxury vehicle market with Lincoln and Cadillac. These two brands have defined the word luxury for the domestic car market in America. In fact, Cadillac has been doing this for over 120 years now! While today’s Lincoln offers only SUVs like the Navigator and Aviator, Cadillac continues to manufacture and market SUVs and sedans like the Escalade and CTS. As a result, Cadillac might be your best choice if you are looking for a domestic luxury sedan. In addition, Cadillac and Lincoln are moving into the luxury electric vehicle market, an area dominated primarily by Tesla at this point. Cadillac has introduced the all-electric Lyriq SUV for the 2024 model year, to be followed soon by the Celestiq Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) sedan.

Meanwhile, Lincoln has built a Model L100 concept vehicle that might be the most futuristic BEV ever designed with cutting-edge battery cell technology. The name itself honors the 100th anniversary of Lincoln’s first luxury model, the 1922 Model L. While it may be a few years before these electric Lincoln and Cadillac vehicles start becoming available on the used car market, you can still find plenty of excellent used Cadillac and Lincoln models for sale, like the Cadillac CTS (which was discontinued in 2019) and the Lincoln Navigator. Choosing one of these will also be a great idea for maintenance and service, as most trained mechanics are familiar with working on powertrains, drivetrains, and other key features.

Affordable Luxury From the East

The Asian automakers from Japan and South Korea made a name for themselves by delivering safe, fuel-efficient, reliable vehicles that are incredibly affordable. From Honda and Toyota in Japan to South Korea’s Kia and Hyundai, the vehicles of these automakers consistently top lists for best vehicle value, reliability and dependability, and safety. Not looking to miss an opportunity, these brands took their know-how and applied it to the luxury vehicle market. The result is three top luxury brands regarding affordability and dependability: Acura, Lexus, and Genesis.

Acura is the luxury division of Honda, and like Honda, these models are sleek, sporty, and surprisingly spacious in passenger space. With such sedans as the TLX and Integra and SUVs like the RDX and MDX, Acura has positioned itself as an affordable luxury performance brand.

Lexus is Toyota’s luxury brand, while Genesis is owned by Hyundai. Like Acura, Lexus offers a number of luxury sedans and SUVs known for their combination of fine materials, roomy interior spaces, and quality performance. In addition, Lexus offers a number of their models with hybrid engines, giving you the option to go green with a combination of a gas engine and a battery-powered electric motor that will help reduce your fuel consumption.

Not unlike Rolls-Royce, Genesis has chosen to build high-quality, luxury four-door sedans. These models are noted for their reliability, with the Genesis brand ranking fourth on J.D. Power’s 2022 Vehicle Dependability Study. This is based on reports of the number of problems per 100 vehicles over a three-year period. Genesis had only 155 problems per 100 vehicles, easily outpacing the other luxury brands included in the survey. Keep in mind that the industry average is 192 problems per 100 vehicles, a number easily eclipsed by Genesis.
