If you have spent any time researching the luxury model cars of 2017, you have likely come across many highly rated Audis. A favorite among consumers is the fully redesigned Audi A4. With an MSRP ranging anywhere from $35,850-$43,300, this small sporty luxury sedan has a spacious backseat and a sophisticated cabin. The standard is front-drive, with optional all-wheel drive, a turbo four with 252hp and a seven-speed automatic that provides quick acceleration. Special features include Apple CarPlay, Andriod Auto and the option for a 19-speaker audio system. This update was huge for the Audi A4, making it appear on several consumers’ shortlists. If you like the A4, but you’re more interested in an SUV, take a look at the 2017 Audi Q3 on Audi’s luxury car website.
Like Audi, Mercedes-Benz brought several high-rated cars to the market, such as the Mercedes C-Class Sedan, E-Class Sedan and CLS Coupe. However, the S-Class sedan stands out among the rest. The S-Class has a commanding presence on the road and prides itself on creating a low-stress environment. Seat engineers worked with medical professionals to create perfectly contoured seats with options for hot stone massage system technology and reclining rear seats. Consumers have several package options, including an interior LED lighting package that contains seven different color choices, a warmth and comfort package that heats every interior surface and an air balance package that purifies your air using an ionization system. The S-Class is packed with visual 3D technology and two Direct Injection biturbo V8s. Some even come with a new 9-speed. Its MSRP starts at $96,000, a price that varies based on Mercedes-Benz luxury model cars.
Although BMW is offering several selections this year, such as the X6 M, X6, X4 and 7 series, the M6 Coupe is one of the top consumer-rated vehicles of 2017. The M6’s V8 engine makes it a powerful car, but its interior remains comfortable. It also offers a responsive automated manual transmission and the option for a traditional six-speed manual gearbox. A wide variety of high-tech features exists in the interior, including wireless phone charging, enhanced Bluetooth and USB connections, a Wi-Fi hotspot with 3GB/3-month trial and the newest iDrive system. That power and technology combined with adjustable and supportive front seats makes the perfect vehicle for someone looking for high horsepower (560) and coziness in a sports car. The listed MSRP for a 2017 BMW M6 Coupe without options is approximately $114,695.
Alfa Romeo Giulia
In a teeming market of sports sedans, the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia stands on its own. This elegant Italian car is equipped with a 2.0L turbo four with an eight-speed automatic. Rear-wheel drive is standard with the option for all-wheel. Other standards include a dual exhaust, leather seats and a sport flat-bottomed steering wheel with a push-button start. This sedan has a glossy interior, an easy-to-use optional 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a convenient push-button ignition. You’ll also find several packages including Sport Appearance, Sport Interior, Navigation, 10-speaker Premium Audio and Cold Weather. The MSRP ranges from $38,990-$44,340. If you’re a fan of the Alfa Romeo Giulia Sedan, you should also take a look at the Giulia Quadrifoglio. Its standards list is much longer than the Giulia Sedan, which is great for consumers looking to add on fewer features.
One of Jaguar’s great luxury car models is the 2017 Jaguar XF. Some of the XF 35t’s standard features include an 8-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, a 3.0L V-6 340hp engine, 4-wheel anti-lock brakes, an airbag occupancy sensor and overhead and side seat mounted airbags. Other standard features include Bluetooth connections, a built-in garage door opener, rear-view cameras and InControl Touch Navigation. It also has a roomy back seat and optimal trunk space. This unique performance-focused vehicle comes with many theme options that add special features like LED adaptive headlights, sport-style seats, a blind spot monitor with closing vehicle sensing and a complimentary 3-month Sirius Satellite radio subscription. Its MSRP ranges from approximately $48,250-$67,195. You can build your own Jaguar XF at Jaguar.com and gain a better understanding of what your luxury car lease would look like.
