During the beginning of the 20th century, almost all vehicles would have qualified as luxury cars based on the price disparity with horse-driven carriages. When motoring evolved away from a recreational thrill enjoyed by a select few, luxury cars continued to lead the cause for vehicle refinement. Associated with a large and heavy character, the modern definition of a luxury car provides a much more diverse choice of vehicles than decades ago. Taking the form of coupe, sedan, convertible as well as SUVs or crossover vehicles, a luxury car is defined as any product that goes to extravagant steps when it comes to engineering premium touches. Luxury vehicles also present a wide range of retail prices with some around $30,000 while other exclusive cars can run into the seven-figure range. As much as luxury car companies such as Rolls-Royce pushes the boundaries of refined motoring with the excessively spacious Phantom, a marketplace now demands smaller luxury cars now exists as a sizeable market segment. Selling in higher volumes than so-called super luxury cars, smaller premium offerings such as the Cadillac ATS, Audi A3, Mercedes-Benz CLA is contained in an entry-level category. Leather upholstery, wood or carbon fiber trim and most recently high-end infotainment systems are expected to be found inside a 21st century luxury car.
