Thanks to the ever-increasing purchasing power of the Indian consumers, almost every luxury car available in the developed markets is now on sale in our country. So, basically, an average luxury car buyer is pretty much spoilt for choice. However, our guide here should help you pick the best luxury cars in new and used car markets.
1. Toyota Camry
It’s been less than a year since India received the latest generation of the Toyota Camry, which means it would be tough to find the newest model in the used car market. However, it’s easy to pick vehicles from the earlier 3 generations, which offer many features and a high level of comfort. The best part is that the Camry is from Toyota, which means reliability is a given.
Like the Toyota Camry, even the Honda Accord has been present here since four generations. What this means is that it’s fairly easy to find a decent example from the earlier three generations. Again, similar to its aforementioned nemesis, the Accord offers a comfortable cabin and a long list of features. It’s even fairly reliable.
The premium executive sedan from the Ingolstadt-based carmaker offers a great mix of driving pleasure and comfort. It’s on sale with powerful yet frugal petrol and diesel motor options and even the older models tend to age well, which means it’s tough to go wrong with this car.
The Mercedes E-Class has been available in India since 1998. In fact, it was the first model from Mercedes to launch in India. Of course, the newer models are a lot comfier and even have several high-tech safety aids. The E-Class also offers powerful motors and a great ride quality.
While the Mercedes E-Class is for all those who demand a high level of comfort, the BMW 5-series is your option in case you even want a high driver involvement. It even looks sharper and offers great handling manners. This is definitely the car for all those who want a fun-to-drive machine along with a high comfort.
In many ways, the BMW 7-Series is likely an enlarged 5-series that’s more spacious, more luxurious, more powerful and at least as entertaining to drive. Of course, you also benefit from the limo’s higher brand image.
Just like the BMW 7-Series plays the perfect elder sibling to the 5-series, the Mercedes S-Class plays a great elder sister to the Mercedes E-Class. It’s more spacious, has more features and is even more powerful. Again, it’s even a more luxurious model, which brings along the bigger status symbol.
The Audi Q5 is the mid-size luxury SUV from the much-loved German luxury car brand. It looks butch, has powerful engine options and offers a luxurious cabin. What’s even better is that it has been on sale in India since a long time now, which means it is fairly easy to find a good example in the used car market.
The Audi Q7 is the one for you if you need the luxury of a limo and the go-anywhere capabilities of a true-blue off-roader. It’s big, it’s luxurious and it’s powerful. Of course, its 4×4 hardware makes short work of the toughest of the obstacles.
The last car on our list is the BMW X3, a highly capable off-roader that can handle as well as a sedan and offer comfort levels similar to those offered by the BMW 5-Series. Like almost every other model here, the X3 has been on sale in India for a long time now and can be easily picked up from the used car market.
