Luxury cars are in the upper echelon of the automotive industry. Luxury cars offer everything one could want in a car – elegant designs, the most advanced technologies, roomy interiors furnished with the finest materials, and plenty of power should the driver need to get somewhere in a hurry.
Manufacturers have different priorities when developing models depending on what type of vehicle it is. For instance, when developing sports cars, manufacturers usually prioritize power, speed, and handling over everything else. In the case of luxury cars, interior design takes center stage. People who buy luxury cars want roomy, comfortable interiors with futuristic tech and some of the rarest and most expensive materials covering every surface. They want to feel like they’re in a first-class plane seat, especially when they have a driver to chauffeur them around. So from Mercedes-Benz to Rolls-Royce, let’s explore ten luxury cars with some of the best interiors.
10 Mercedes-Benz EQS
It took a while, but Mercedes-Benz has now joined the fast-growing EV space with the EQ line and is looking to be the top dog in the space. One car that shows Mercedes-Benz’s commitment to an electric future is the EQS, as it’s already one of the best EVs on the market in 2023.
The 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQS is the electric version of the iconic S-Class, and it delivers the same luxury experience gearheads expect from the brand. The EQS’ interior is as futuristic as it gets. The most notable feature is the ‘Hyperscreen’ – a giant touch-sensitive wall-to-wall panel of glass stretching across the dashboard for controlling everything. The EQS also has headrest pillows for all passengers, extensive ambient lighting, and an Executive Rear Seat Package.
9 Rolls-Royce Phantom
When it comes to full-size luxury sedans, the Rolls-Royce Phantom is king. The Phantom costs almost $500,000, which is enough to buy a few vehicles on this list and leave enough change for a Tesla Model 3. That price is arguably fair, though, as the Phantom is a hand-built masterpiece that takes months to put together.
Everything in the Phantom’s interior is top-tier luxury, starting with the automatic soft-close doors that allow for hassle-free entry and exit. Inside, you find acres of wood, supple leather, and metal accents, and who can forget its iconic starlight headliner?
8 Lexus LS500
In the late ’80s, Toyota established the Lexus subbrand with one goal – to build superb luxury cars that could compete with the Europeans. Lexus’ first model was the LS, and it was so good as a Mercedes-Benz S-Class rival that Lexus has kept it in production since.
The latest 2023 Lexus LS500 continues to apply pressure to the S-Class by offering a superb interior. While the S-Class is undoubtedly better, the LS500 comes pretty close especially if the buyer opts for the real wood trim, pleated door panel fabric, and artful glass inserts.
7 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is already the best luxury sedan in many gearheads’ eyes. However, some people still don’t think the S-Class is luxurious enough, which is why Mercedes-Benz’s Maybach division builds a more luxurious version of the car.
The latest 2023 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class has a superbly posh cabin that comes pretty close to the aforementioned Rolls-Royce Phantom, though it’s more subtle. The rear seat is where you want to be, where to can relax on the reclining and massaging VIP seats while enjoying a chilled glass of wine with the curtains shut.
6 Range Rover SV
The Range Rover is as iconic as it gets when it comes to British vehicles. The Range Rover has been in production since 1969 and is still going strong today. The Range Rover started as a hardcore off-roader, but over the years it has evolved into one of the best luxury SUVs in the market.
The most luxurious version of the 2023 Range Rover is the SV. The SV’s driving area maintains a perfect balance between screens, buttons, and dials, but it’s in the back where things get much better. The rear passengers get heated and massaging seats and a full-length rear console with a touchscreen for controlling comfort and entertainment, illuminated cup holders, and a mini fridge with an electrically deployable door.
5 Genesis G90
Borrowing a leaf from Toyota’s book, Hyundai knew it couldn’t compete with established brands like Mercedes-Benz and BMW in the luxury car market, so it established the Genesis brand to do just that. Genesis has turned into a huge success and now has a strong lineup of luxury sedans and SUVs that’s growing rapidly.
The most luxurious car in Genesis’ lineup is the G90, and after a 2023 face-lift, it looks much better than ever before. The latest G90 has a well-designed interior featuring power-operated doors, Nappa leather upholstery, massaging seats, and genuine wood trim. The G90 even has an onboard fragrance diffuser that fills the space with a pleasant scent and an air purifier that prevents bad odors.
4 Bentley Bentayga
Just like Rolls-Royce, Bentley has always had a reputation for building some of the most luxurious British cars. Bentley’s first SUV has been a huge success for the brand since its debut in 2015 despite its sky-high price tag, and it’s not slowing down soon.
We love everything about the Bentayga, from its looks to its potent engine choices. The Bentayga’s cabin is to die for, as it comes with real wood trim, high-quality leather, and glitzy metal accents. Other cool features include a safe with a biometric lock, two Breitling dash clocks, adjustable ambient interior lighting, and a bottle cooler in the rear. 8
3 BMW 7 Series
BMW’s flagship sedan – the 7 Series – has always been in the shadow of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, but not for much longer. The latest generation of the 7 Series debuted for the 2023 model year, and it’s everything BMW fanboys could have wished for.
The 2023 BMW 7 Series may not match the S-Class in the design department, but it surely does in the interior. The 7 Series offers a cornucopia of luxury amenities inside, including rich-smelling leathers, fancy glass and wood trim features, stainless steel accents, and one of the best takes on ambient lighting. The showstopper is in the rear seating area, where you find a massive 31.3-inch 8K display that drops from the ceiling when needed.
2 Bugatti Chiron
The first thing that comes to everyone’s mind when they hear ‘Bugatti’ is insanely fast supercars. Bugatti has built two cars with the sole mission of destroying production car speed records, and it succeeded both times. However, while Bugatti’s main focus is speed, the company also wants to ensure that its multi-millionaire and billionaire customers get luxury too. The Chiron shoes that perfectly.
For one, the Chiron has double-glazed windows and extra sound-deadening material to ensure its quad-turbocharged W16 doesn’t blow the driver’s ears off with its roar. The cabin also has top-of-the-range materials that add a whimsical charm. It even has real diamonds in the speakers to ensure crystal-clear sound.
1 Ferrari Purosangue
About a decade ago, Ferrari claimed it would never build an SUV as it wanted to stay true to its roots as a sports car manufacturer. Fast forward to today, and the situation has changed. With top competitors like Lamborghini and Aston Martin joining the SUV space with the Urus and DBX respectively, Ferrari had no choice but to follow along with their own SUV – the Purosangue.
The Purosangue is primarily a luxury SUV, but it has a mighty V12 engine under the hood and a driver-focused cabin with comfortable individual bucket seats for everyone.
