From social status to reliability, there are many reasons why people buy high-end luxury cars. Even in tough economic times, they tend to gravitate towards authentic and credible brands like BMW, Jaguar and Mercedes. That’s because these vehicles have proven their worth time and time again, not just in terms of their looks but in luxury and safety as well. Whether you’re in the market for a high-end luxury car or just fantasizing, it may be helpful to see the many reasons why you should invest in one.
1. Luxury and Safety
New innovations come standard in each year’s models, a privilege many people spend big bucks to enjoy. Yes, features like heated seats, powered lift gates, seat massagers and illuminated vents may excite you, but the safety components that are standard on many high-end cars may capture your interest even more. From blind spot warning systems and anti-lock brake systems (ABS) to auto lane keeping and curtain airbags, you are promised a safe ride. Luxury cars are those that cost more than $30,000, so it stands to reason that a recent survey shows 44% of vehicles with an estimated base price of $30,000 were chosen as top safety picks by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, according to Forbes.
2. Resale Value
With eight out of 15 segment winners on average chosen by Kelley Blue Book each year coming from a luxury brand, it’s no wonder so many people choose luxury cars for their high resale value. For 2016, the Porsche Panamera took top accolades for best resale value among high-end luxury cars thanks to its rear seat roominess and overall luxury afforded by this sought-after German brand, according to KBB.
3. Image and Prestige
Of course, one of the main reasons for buying a high-end luxury car is the image and prestige that come with it. Looking to turn heads? Investing in an Audi, Porsche or BMW helps you achieve a lot of status in the community. Not only do people turn and take notice when you pull up in a high-end luxury vehicle, you also get perks like valet services at the local country club. After all, you don’t want to park your car in the middle of the lot where it can get banged up by careless parkers and drivers!
4. Comfort and Convenience
The level of comfort you experience in your high-end luxury cars is well worth the sticker price, with features like remote-start, heated and cooled seats, heated steering wheels, ski bags, and lamb’s wool floor mats.
5. State of the Art Technology
Blending safety features such as anti-lock brakes and review cameras, luxury cars also boast the latest in entertainment technology, such as in-headrest TV screens and Bluetooth connections. State of the art technology is found in all areas of a luxury car, from remote starters and electronic parking aids to rain-sensing windshield wipers and navigation. Speaking of navigation, take Audi’s MMI system for example, which features Google Earth mapping, parking information where you can locate available spots in advance, and “picture navigation” that utilizes geotagged information from digital photographs to locate an address, according to PC Magazine.
