What Defines Luxury Car Brands?

The word “luxury” evokes images of old Hollywood glamor, high-end materials, and richness. Luxury car makers know their buyers have exacting standards and high expectations, but what, exactly defines a brand as a luxury automaker? The distinction is largely ambiguous and left to customer discernment. In general, luxury car brands are defined by the following characteristics:

  • Quality: High-end materials are the bedrock of luxury brands. Hardwoods, genuine leather, and premium finishes are par for the course in this category. Great materials are only half of the equation. Expert artisan craftspeople dedicate hours of world-class talent to the smallest details of high-end cars. Some brands boast hand-made components and bespoke details.
  • Technology: It’s tempting to think back to the dawn of high-end cars when imagining a luxury car but these cars are now on the cutting edge. Infotainment systems, advanced safety features, and modern conveniences are standard features today. As such, luxury automakers must impress with their offerings. No run-of-the-mill infotainment systems or mid-quality sound systems will do. Luxury cars are made with the best technology available.
  • Enhancements: It takes more than a well-made car to solidify a brand’s reputation as a luxury automaker. Luxury buyers expect features and functionality above and beyond what’s typically available. Footrests, hidden umbrella compartments, and aromatherapy are examples of some of the show-stopping features that luxury makers add to their cars.

  3. Bugatti

  4. Bugatti boasts some of the fastest luxury cars on earth. Thrill seekers looking for a high-end experience love this brand for its commitment to power and performance without sacrificing style or elegance.

  6. Drivers looking for the thrill of driving an Italian sports car with the extravagance of customization love the flexibility of Lamborghini. This automaker allows a wide range of custom orders which make up a bulk of its sales.

  7. Ferrari
