Here at Field Chauffeur Services, we have a fleet of luxury and executive cars, including top of the range models from Mercedes, Jaguar and BMW. But what is it that actually makes a luxury car luxurious?

Definition of a luxury car

Using the term ‘luxury car’ suggests something that is high quality, pleasing to the senses and incorporates features above and beyond what is strictly necessary. But, this is a highly subjective area, as one person’s ‘luxury’ could be another’s ‘premium’.

Is it just a question of price? Or perhaps it’s craftsmanship, exclusivity, or one purely based on branding? Historically the choice was more limited; go for an exclusive brand such as Rolls Royce with lashings of walnut trim and sumptuous leather seats and your wealthier car buying punter was happy.

Manufacturers of luxury cars

The choice in the modern day has become a lot more complicated. The sales of premium vehicles are soaring, so not only are the prestige marques producing luxury cars, but more of the mass-market manufacturers are getting in on the act as well.

Therefore, the traditional luxury brands are having to up their game to distinguish themselves from the rest. There are also different categories of luxury vehicles, from mid-size executive cars and full size luxury cars from Mercedes, Jaguar, Audi, BMW and Cadillac to name a few. Then there’s luxury SUV’s from Range Rover and Porsche, right through to ultra-luxury cars from the likes of Rolls Royce and Bentley. And not forgetting the luxury sports car segment from famous names such as Ferrari, Aston Martin and Lamborghini.
