Many manufacturers strive to bring a luxury and premium feeling into their cars but many fall flat compared to the ten we have chosen here. The best in the business combine the latest space age technology, unrivalled interior quality and a smooth and silky driving experience all rounded together.

The big factor with luxury cars is exactly how much luxury you get for your money. The best cars come with plush seats covered in soft leather, while even the seats in the back will come with electric adjustment and massage functions. There will be legroom to spare and the kind of in-car entertainment that used to be the preserve of first-class transatlantic flights, with high-end audio and visual systems that can be tailored to any requirement or need.
