A luxury vehicle is a relatively expensive vehicle that includes additional features designed to increase the comfort of the driver and passengers. Luxury vehicles usually place more emphasis on comfort, appearance, and amenities such as technological upgrades and higher quality materials than on performance, economy, or utility. Luxury vehicles are often built in smaller numbers than more affordable mass-market vehicles. Luxury vehicles are historically 5 or 6-passenger four-door sedans. Recently the term "luxury" has been stapled onto other vehicles, including coupés, hatchbacks, station wagons, roadsters, and even trucks, such as light pickup trucks or sport utility vehicles.

General definition (American market)

While defining what constitutes a "luxury car" is somewhat subjective, guidelines such as price, design, comfort, and prestige that can be used to help define the term. Luxury cars also offer a higher degree of comfort than their mainstream counterparts as well as a highly sumptuous interior with a strong emphasis on design and beauty. Features such as interior leather and polished "woodgrain-look" dashboards are common amenities. [2] Luxury cars typically carry prestige, which means the allure that the car carries. Some automakers develop luxury or halo vehicle from their mass production models by product differentiation, effective marketing mix modifications (particularly by charging a higher price for relatively minor changes and use of more up-market advertising), and buyer driven market segmentation through product placement. As a result, "luxury" is sometimes only in the perception of the consumers.[3] Prestige means good reputation or high esteem. ... This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ...

Vehicles in this segment include the mid-range models of several luxury car manufacturers such as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5 Series, Holden Caprice, Holden Statesman, Volvo S80, Audi A6, Saab 9-5, Lexus GS, and Jaguar S-Type. There are also some flagship sedans in this segment. The Citroën C6, Alfa Romeo 166, Cadillac DTS, Chrysler 300C, Lincoln Town Car, Peugeot 607, Renault Vel Satis, Infiniti M35/45, and Acura RL are all considered to be part of the mid-luxury segment due to their relatively low base MSRPs despite their rank as a "flagship sedan" and high-end like interiors.

The flagship SUV Lincoln Navigator, for example, has a base MSP of approximately $46,850, versus $$45,915 for the flagship Lincoln Town Car. This scenario, however, does not hold true for European automakers, where the flagship sedans are still priced above the top-of-the-line SUV.
