Cars can make or break the image we want to represent, can’t they? For example, the James Bond series always goes back to the Aston Martin; because of their product placement as a ‘Bond car’ so often, people who buy them have every right to feel suave when they’re taking theirs out for the monthly weekend drive. But let’s get real for a moment - certain Aston Martin models can leave quite a lot to be desired, especially when you take their price tags into consideration.
So which cars DO live up to the hype for those of us who are looking for a bit of fanciness or panache in our rides? We’ve made a list of the most beautiful cars that are not just breathtaking to look at, but also deliver superb amounts of excitement when you get behind the wheel of them, too.
Our top 5 luxury cars will surprise and delight
Wherever your manufacturing loyalties lie, maybe it’s time to finally set them aside and consider a change in tastes in order to get the perfect fancy car. For the benefit of the majority, though, we’ve included a range of manufacturers on our list of 5 ‘upgrade-feeling’ cars. So without further ado, here are some of the top-tier options:
BMW X7 xDrive30d
Yes, it’s a little on the pricier side. But jeez, the feeling of getting behind the wheel and taking it for even just a brief spin will leave you grinning like an idiot for the rest of the day.
You’re truly in for an exciting ride with the X7. While it’s got a hefty price tag ($135,900* plus on-roads), it most definitely packs a punch worthy of its cost with its seriously powerful 3-litre turbo-diesel. Not just that, but it’s super-economical too - BMW claims it will take you to and from wherever you need to go at just 7.3 litres per hundred k’s.
But what about the comfort? Well, what might you expect from a Beemer? Slide into the driver’s seat and you’ll quickly realise it’s a top contender as an ultra-comfy, stylish vehicle that includes tech you might never have even heard of before.
Over the years, there’s a lot that’s been said about Audio at both the positive and negative ends of the spectrum. As such, the brand has worked tirelessly and put a substantial amount of time and effort into the development of their vehicles.
And what a job they’ve done. Just one primo example is the Audi A6, which provides drivers who have even the most minimal abilities the tools to become something anything but. What do we mean by that? Well, let’s look at the standard features that come with this artistic addition to the Audi range - parking system front and rear, adaptive cruise control, 360 degree cameras, lane change assist, intersection crossing assist… and the list goes on.
Long story short, no matter how subpar your skills are behind the wheel, the Audi A6 will accommodate - and then some.
No, this isn’t some weird car that’s stemmed from the Phil Collins band. It’s a superbly luxurious car brand that owes its roots to err… well, Hyundai.
But stop thinking about the origins and start thinking about the beauty that is the Genesis; especially the Genesis G80. It is a GLORIOUS vehicle, and offers luxury that many other vehicles strive for. To be honest, it’s a little ridiculous how well Hyundai have done under the guise of Genesis.
So why do they sell so well? Well, I can tell you it’s not their website because it’s about as intuitive as ice skating uphill (thanks for the analogy, Blade).
But moving past that, the vehicle is a masterpiece. Both internally and externally, it looks as if it’s been scrupulously sculpted and meticulously moulded by Michaelangelo himself yet somehow doesn’t come with an absolutely ridiculous price tag.
Tesla Model 3
So, here we find ourselves. Electric cars. And you know what? This one’s a doozy. Even the base model is absurdy fast. Like, 0-100 in 3.3 seconds fast. It boasts a 580 kilometre range and an all-wheel-drive system. You might imagine that Elon Musk (well, the people working their butts off for him anyway) has forgotten about features like comfort in order to get these insane numbers, right?
Wrong. While it’s not exceptional, the ride of the Model 3 will keep you wondering whether you’re in a vehicle that will get you to those numbers… until it does. Long story short, it’s very difficult to understand what a Tesla can offer you behind the wheel until you experience it first-hand.
Mercedes Benz E-Class
Got some dollary-doos to spend and want perhaps the most comfortable ride out there? The E-Class Benz offers a wealth of options that make driving it a dream - even the models that don’t sport the AMG badge.
There are a few variants on the market, and even when you opt for the cheapest (just shy of a hundred grand, mind you), you’re getting more specs and features than you’ve probably ever had in a car before. It is an absolutely GORGEOUS vehicle that demands respect on the road, and behind the wheel it drives so darn well that you may experience complete universal awareness.
Whatever you thought you knew about driving will be quickly challenged by its insurmountable speed and handling capabilities.
