The definition of a luxury car has changed dramatically over the past twenty years. Where once we only included full-size sedans branded as luxury cars, we now see luxury SUVs and compact vehicles bearing the same epithet.

Luxury cars feature premium materials, the newest technology, and stunning looks. They have a presence when they drive down the road and they provide the best driving experience.

At Cartelligent, we help thousands of people each year decide which vehicle will work best for them. We’ve used this data to compile a list of our top-selling luxury vehicles
