Jun 26, 2015 23:58
Let’s face it; there are thousands of different car makes and models to choose from in this world. There’s no denying that there’s an auto out there to suit all people’s tastes and requirements. But, if you’re looking for a capable car that has even an ounce of luxury, which one should you choose?
It turns out there are plenty of new models to select this year. If you’ve been to an auto show this year, you will have doubtless seen some of the exciting new models coming out shortly. That’s great news, except you need a new car today - not next year!
To help you out, I’ve compiled a list of cars you ought to consider buying this year. Check the following examples out:
Are you the sort of person that wants to lead a greener lifestyle? If so, you’ve perhaps considered buying an electric vehicle. Now, I know what you’re thinking. You wouldn’t be seen dead driving something like a Toyota Prius, am I right?
Well, the good news is you can buy an electric car that still looks like a decent vehicle! One of the finest examples of luxurious electric car motoring has to be the Tesla Model S.
Some people consider it the Jaguar of the plug-in electric world. Others just find it a refreshing change from the absurd battery-powered vehicles out there.
However, one thing’s for sure: you will love driving the Tesla Model S. Take the interior, for example. Not only is it luxurious, it’s tech-centric too. The dashboard features a large tablet in place of a conventional center console. Not many electric cars can boast such a selling point!
Sometimes you have to put practicality over looks when you buy a car. Of course, there are exceptions to that rule, with one of them being the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Have you checked out the latest model? It’s just full of awesome! The exterior has sleek, sculpted contours that detract from its boxy past. Larger alloy wheels add to the car’s swish styling. And that mean front end hasn’t lost that unmistakable Jeep radiator grille.
The current generation features a broad array of technology. Examples include HID headlights and LED daytime running lights. The “personalized” instrument cluster inside the car has brought the Jeep Grand Cherokee into the 21st century with flair and panache.
On the subject of the car’s interior, the good news is it looks refined and prestigious. Even when you’re driving over uneven off-road terrain, you can still enjoy premium comfort and technology from the safety of your cabin.
If you’re looking for a capable yet luxurious SUV, the Jeep Grand Cherokee should be on your shortlist.
For those of you with a blank checkbook, one car that you should consider buying this year is the Bentley Continental GT V8. Under the hood, it features a 4.0-liter V8 engine with twin turbochargers.
Over 500 horsepower is on offer to you, not to mention the various luxurious refinements that Bentley cars have to offer. I don’t know about you, but I find it hard to resist the alluring styling and confidence that the Bentley Continental GT V8 offers.
Yes, there are plenty of other Bentley models I could suggest. However, the Continental GT is one of those must-have iconic models for 2015. If you haven’t already, I recommend taking one out for a test drive. I also dare you to find your experience behind the wheel unsatisfactory. If it is, you’ve probably driven some other car instead!
If you’re looking for a prestige sedan, you can’t go wrong by purchasing a Mercedes-Benz S-Class. As standard, you can enjoy features like the Active Parking Assist. Perfect for those of us that find it impossible to visualize how our cars can fit into the smallest of spaces!
Other technology examples include active damping. In layman’s terms, this means that your drive will be more comfortable than in a vehicle with a “static” suspension setup. The 12.3-inch TFT screen will also make it easy to access and control various functions in and around the vehicle.
Then there’s the level of refinement in the car itself. There is a choice of leather upholstery options you can specify when ordering a new S-Class. Rear climate control can get specified if you regularly take passengers on your travels with you. In fact, I could spend all day telling you about how amazing this car is!
Well, that’s it for today’s list of luxurious cars for 2015. Which one will you choose?
Just a few years ago, the majority of cars were manuals. Automatic gearboxes were seriously expensive and a luxury only the wealthy could afford. Over time, as with so many other things, prices came down, and automatic cars went mainstream, especially in the US. Today, most people drive an automatic, something that was unthinkable forty years ago, just like it was unthinkable that most people would have airbags. But it happened, nonetheless. Read more
It’s a sad fact that car accidents are very common all around the world, and one of the leading causes of death, even in developed nations.

Being a pickup truck owner doesn’t make you that much different to people that own cars, for example. You both drive mechanical objects on wheels, and you all have to maintain and repair your vehicles. Read more
