There are so many places you can find luxury cars these days that there’s no excuse not to own one. You’d be crazy in your position not to be the proud owner of a luxury vehicle. I don’t think you need me to tell you that. But if you still need convincing here are nine reasons why you’d be bonkers not to buy yourself a luxury car.

1. The Look

One of the key things you need to remember about luxury cars is that they’re sexy. Sex appeal is important. You need to have that wow factor when you get behind the wheel. It’s important for you in your life to have that thing that makes you stand out from the crowd. In this case, it’s your luxury car. Putting pedal to metal behind the wheel of a Bentley or BMW is much sexier than chugging along in a Ford Mondeo. Whichever luxury car you choose to own it will have its own type of sex appeal. They’re all designed in a mouth-watering way, so pick whichever one you feel is the best looking.

2. Status

Luxury cars are important for the status they give you, but in a personal and professional sense. It might be a culmination of years of hard work. It could be the fulfillment of a dream you’ve had since you were a kid. Owning one is an important achievement, and it also makes an important statement about you as a person. You’re not just any old person now. You’re a go-getter. You’re a problem solver. A luxury car shows you’re ambitious and single-minded, and you’re serious about achieving goals.

3. The Experience

A lot of people like to own luxury cars for the experience of doing so. It could be the culmination of a dream you’ve had from a young age. Driving luxury cars elevates the driving process. When you’re in a regular car driving can seem like a chore or a procedure that you’d rather do without. When you’re behind the wheel of a luxury vehicle, it’s a different experience altogether.

4. Image

When you get yourself a luxury car, you’ll be making a statement to the world. You’ll be projecting an image, and this is important. The image you project will be the way people view you as a person. They say you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression, and this is true. The way people view you in life can define the experiences you have. Owning a luxury car promotes a positive self-image. It shows that you take pride in yourself and who you are. It shows that you value your possessions and that you want to make an effort in your daily life.

5. Safer

If you’re looking for more reasons why you should buy yourself a luxury car, then a major one is the safety aspect. Almost all luxury vehicles are designed with safety in mind in the first place. So you’ll be able to enjoy the top of the range safety standards and equipment. Luxury cars are remarkably robust and can withstand a lot of crashes. You’ll also have the latest airbags, traction control and anti-lock braking.

6. Better Accessories

A big positive point with luxury cars is that they contain better accessories than normal run of the mill vehicles. The entertainment systems and technology will be state-of-the-art. Even with an older model luxury car the standard is still going to be high.

All the latest gadgets and additions may be present in your car along with the basics as well. Touch screen entertainment consoles and Bluetooth compatibility are likely to be a certainty. The interior will be exquisite and likely the best looking kind of interior on the market. Sleek, sophisticated and trendy are just a few of the words you could use to describe the inside.

7. Better Performance

When it comes to the performance of luxury cars, the regular models just don’t seem to cut it anymore. Luxury vehicles are powerful and hulking, like a large jungle cat. They have staggeringly powerful engines and maneuver with a grace that defies their size. Luxury cars are better designed and equipped to handle pace, power and precision driving. In this case, bigger does mean better.

8. Potentially Decent Resale Value

One thing you might not have accounted for with luxury cars is the potentially decent resale value they have. It’s often thought that the value of luxury cars depreciates with alarming speed. And this is often the case with brand new models. If you buy a used luxury car, you might be surprised at the resale price you could get. If you’ve already bought the car at a knocked down price and you look after it well you might find it retains its valuation. You might also want to consider the way in which you plan to sell it as this may affect the percentage you’ll get.

9. Cheaper Than Regular Car

You need to consider the fact that buying a used luxury car will work out cheaper than buying a new regular car. Even with any repair work that might need doing you’ll still save money by going the luxury approach. If you look at it in this way, it seems like no brainer. Why would anyone want to buy a new regular, boring motor when for the same cost (or less) they could get a luxury car.

You shouldn’t let the fact that the car might be used put you off. Few people nowadays own or buy luxury cars new. Most pick them up second-hand and find the quality is still just as good as it would be in a brand new model.
