THE KOBI KOACHMAN GUIDE | 10 BEST LUXURY CAR BRANDS
Luxury Car vs. Premium Car. What’s the difference?
Now there are two different types of cars in the world namely – Luxury cars and Premium cars. Which one do you drive?
Before you answer that, let me go on ahead and explain each of them for you so you can give me the correct answer. Alright, shall we? What makes a luxury car?
According to Consumer Reports, Luxury vehicles typically represent the leading edge of comfort, performance, safety, and technology. A good luxury car has an innate quality that goes beyond leather upholstery and wood trim. Materials should be of a higher grade than those in mainstream vehicles, with plush carpets, rich fabric, and quiet cabins. Basic power amenities, automatic climate control systems, and up-level audio systems with Bluetooth connectivity are expected. Many luxury models also offer all-wheel-drive and can come in sedan, coupe, SUV and convertible body styles.
This exclusive driving experience comes at a price which includes the initial purchase cost as well as the ownership/maintenance costs, both of which typically far exceeds those of more humble vehicles. Generally, in terms of initial purchase price, true luxury models can reach up to $200,000 and more.
