The best brands ruling the league of high-end luxury cars are known for pampering their owners and completely spoiling them with their cozy and superfluous design, style, and features. Names like Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Maserati, Aston Martin, and Jaguar are very close to each other in leading the market. Each car from the respective marque is uniquely handcrafted by the craftsmen who master in their niche. The quality of material used, work and precision inculcated in the manufacturing is unprecedented. Various factors make luxury cars what they are. There are in fact some features, which are becoming must-haves in luxury cars and run common in the blood of these beauties. Luxury vehicles costing more than $100,000 offer a host of interesting features, a few of which are discussed here:
Wholesome Leather: Seats and door inserts are not the only places for leather here. Ceilings, instrument panel domes, dashboards and center consoles can also bear the leather trim. It is often a pricey option on sub-$100,000 cars, but should be standard in the ultra-luxury class. The interiors of these cars have to be world-class, whether they use wood, aluminum or carbon fiber.
Take A Massage: Recent luxury innovation, these are available for both front and rear seats. Some systems use liquid-filled bladders that slowly flow from one side to the other; others use embedded motors. So one can relax in those tiring long journeys and fight the fatigue.
Keep It Cool: Mounted between the rear seats, an onboard refrigerator keeps chilled beverages at hand for backseat passengers, a basic for every luxury car.
Panoramic View: Essentially a fixed glass pane behind an existing moonroof, panoramic moonroof gives the cabin a more airy and open feel, especially over the backseat.
Warm Steering: Electrically heated steering wheels heat faster than traditional climate-control systems, warming hands long before the ambient air does. These mostly operate at the push of a button, though some automatically activate when the seat heaters are switched on.
Intelligent Cars: Cars are now made to be intelligent and intuitive. The intelligent remote entry also known as Smart Access, Keyless Go, or Intelligent Key, transmits signals that communicate with the car when it is nearby. Car doors unlock when its handle is pulled, even if the remote control is in your pocket or purse. It is a convenient feature if your arms are busy or if you don’t want to dig for your keys. It’s often paired with a push-button engine start system, which also allows the transmitter to remain out of sight.
Remote start: Remote start systems include a button on the key fob that can start the car from several hundred feet away, usually while keeping the vehicle locked. Starting the vehicle early allows the climate-control system to bring the cabin to a comfortable temperature by the time you arrive.
Rear-Seat Fun: Backseat features become more extravagant as prices increase. Heated rear seats are common on the low end of this segment, with power-operated seatbacks, entertainment systems like televisions and Play stations, individual temperature controls and cooled rear seats available on vehicles closer to $100,000.
These examples of sheer brilliance come with the requirement of regular car servicing and upkeep that requires quite a bit of effort.
