Luxury on Wheels- Best Luxury Cars [2nd part]

We presented you with the best cars for 2021. Some of them with more luxury others less luxurious but it only depends on your preference. Let’s dive into luxury and see what they have to offer.

BMW 7 Series

BMW 7 Series was given a whole host of new cutting-edge technology when the latest 7 Series arrived in 2016. There are standard and long-wheelbase versions, which provides improved rear legroom and is, therefore, an excellent choice for chauffeurs.

The new car gets a more tapered design and is significantly lighter than the car it replaces thanks to the use of carbon fibre in its construction. This helps to save fuel, although it also means that the rapid 740i and 750i models handle surprisingly well for such a large car.

Top of the range is the M760Li xDrive, which became BMW’s fastest accelerating car ever when it was launched – taking just 3.7 seconds to get to 62mph from a standstill. The M760Li xDrive costs well into six figures, has a 6.6-litre twin-turbo V12 and produces 602bhp and 800Nm of torque – the model that screams with ultimate luxury.

Bentley Continental GT

The Bentley Continental GT may be built on Porsche Panamera underpinnings but that is in no way a bad thing as both cars feature in this top ten list. This is a luxury ‘grand touring’ coupe that does not break sweat being driven across continents. Its 626bhp and 900Nm W12 engine has become synonymous with the car and certainly packs a punch.

The interior is the ultimate luxury for anyone that sits in it, with inspiration taken from the wings of the Bentley badge. The dashboard ‘wings’ majestically out from the central console, before continuing into the door trims, circling the occupants with a ring of wood and leather.

Along with the enjoyable design, the cabin features an array of new technology including bang-up-to-date infotainment and safety systems that are a match for anything else on sale. There’s also a bundle of new chassis tech that helps give the Continental GT its great driver feeling on the road.

Range Rover

The Range Rover is just as comfortable as a long-distance cruiser as it is ploughing through a muddy field. Despite its imposing presence, the Range Rover is surprisingly nimble and hugely refined.

The Range Rover comes in four trim levels – the ‘entry’ level Vogue, the mid-range Vogue SE, the Autobiography and bespoke SV Autobiography tops the range. Engines are large in capacity, with a 3.0-litre SDV6 diesel, 3.0-litre petrol and a 5.0 supercharged petrol V8 available. There’s also a 2.0-litre petrol plug-in hybrid with 398bhp.

With the extra height the Range Rover has over its rivals, it feels truly massive in the back, especially in the long-wheelbase guise, and it gives a fantastic view. One downside of its sheer size though, is that it’s quite a climb up into the car.
