Perhaps you’ve seen them on the road or are fortunate enough to own one: a beautiful luxury car. And, as you’re likely well-aware, luxury vehicles do much more than get you to the grocery store or to work in one piece; they also have incredible performance features, are impeccably constructed and include a number of cool accessories.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the most luxurious cars money can buy, as well as some soft, quiet and comfortable accessories that nicely complement these amazing rides:
U.S. News and World Report listed the Audi A8 as one of its top “super luxury cars” for 2018 — and for good reason: Calling it one of the best luxury sedans you can buy, the Audi A8 features the perfect combination of sporty performance and an opulent interior.
Additionally, the luxury sedan comfortably seats five people, and both rows of seats offer plenty of room to stretch out and get comfortable. Now for the actual comfort and luxury: Some of the top interior features include
- Soft and supple leather seats
- Suede inlays
- Real wood trim
To help you get to your next destination, the A8 also includes a navigation system featuring a touchpad that recognizes and responds to your handwriting as well as a 14-speaker Bose audio system.
Lexus GS Hybrid
For those looking for a more fuel-efficient luxury vehicle, the Lexus GS Hybrid definitely delivers. Advertised as extremely quiet and comfortable, the Lexus GS Hybrid includes a sport-tuned suspension system that was created by the same team of engineers that perfected the world-renowned LFA supercar.
Additionally, the luxury car’s 3.5-liter V6 gasoline engine and electric motor combine to produce an impressive 338 horsepower, with the sedan also comfortably seating five adults with plenty of legroom. As for the accessories that make you go “ahh!” (literally), make sure to splurge on the package that includes a heated steering wheel and ventilated front seats.
Michelin Premier A/S Tires
There are also a number of after-market luxury accessories you can purchase for your ride. One great example is the tires that will help make your vehicle overall more quiet and comfortable. But steer clear of — pun fully intended — tires that boast “extreme” performance, because, in order to get a boost in cornering, you’ll have to sacrifice comfort and noise.
However, one tire that offers a luxurious look and feel, thanks to its comfort control technology, is the Michelin Premier A/S, which is available in a number of sizes that fit a variety of luxury vehicles. Plus, it features a smooth and quiet ride that will actually allow you to have a conversation with your passengers.
If you live in a cold climate and want your backside to be warm and toasty during your commute to work, seat heaters are surely the perfect accessory. Classic Soft Trim sells seat heaters that are guaranteed to “keep your hiney warmed” and feature the best automotive-grade leather and a custom manufacturing process that money can buy. In fact, the driver’s seat will be so soft and comfortable that you might not want to ever leave your vehicle.
Quiet and Comfortable Wins Every Time
While you can definitely spend your money on more rugged vehicles or loud sports cars that sacrifice comfort for speed and handling, a soft, quiet and comfortable ride may be more up your alley. Fortunately, there are plenty of luxury cars and accessories that will give you these features and more.
