Part of any luxurious lifestyle has to be having a top-class vehicle under your belt. For many people, getting their hands on a luxury car is one of those life-affirming dreams. The good news is – it doesn’t have to be a dream. Attaining that particular goal might be easier than you think. And what a fantastic time for that to be the case. This year in particular is set to astound and amaze with its selection of top-of-the-range cars. So which are the best? Let’s have a quick rundown of the top five luxury cars of 2016 that you need to get your hands on.

Mercedes S-Class

 

Mercedes have always been a favourite among supercar lovers, and it looks as though nothing’s going to change on that front this year. The main attraction of the new S-Class is its sheer quiet power. Early reviews of the new diesel model have emphasised its smooth-riding and its quietness on any kind of road. Apparently, you can hardly feel the vibrations! It’s not the fastest car around, but at 0-60 in 6.82 seconds, it’s not exactly a horse-and-cart either.

 

Jaguar XJ

 

When it comes to a classic, sleek look, the Jaguar badge is unlikely to disappoint in a hurry. This year, Jaguar are releasing their XJ model – a car set to have all the style of a Jaguar with a few new additions. The sheer speed of the new Jaguar, along with its great driving experience, make it seems like a sportscar. The main difference being: you actually have a good deal of space in the back! This is definitely one to watch out for in 2016.

 

BMW 7 Series

 

With a significantly stellar line-up arriving for this year, the 7 Series is one you can’t afford to miss. If you’re looking for a luxury car this year, you would be mad to ignore the BMW brand. Why? Simply put: they are on a roll. The latest series combines a more tapered design with an even smoother handling on the road. And it all comes wrapped in that BMW sense of gentleman’s style. What’s more, with the price of used BMW cars being what they are, getting hold of one might be simple.

 

Rolls-Royce Ghost

 

At the extreme end of the scale is this little beauty. Rolls-Royce have always been a particular favourite among luxury car lovers, and with the Ghost it’s easy to see why. This stunning vehicle combines the style you expect with a smoothness unparalleled anywhere in modern cars. Of course, with its hefty price tag, it isn’t for everyone. But for those with a dream this year, this just might turn out to be the top choice.

 

Porsche Panamera

 

There is much debate as to how far this last car can be said to be a luxury car. In truth, driving it feels more like a sports car than anything else. Nonetheless, with the cost, and the luxurious look of the exterior and interior, it’s hard to think of it as anything short of magnificent.
