Luxury Vehicles Versus High Trim Levels

Many Spartanburg, South Carolina, residents add style to their lives by driving luxury vehicles. But residents unfamiliar with high-end rides sometimes wonder if luxury vehicles are really as special as they claim to be. After all, many automakers offer a wide range of trim levels, serving different price points, on their vehicles. And many top trims include luxury features such as premium sound systems, leather seating and adaptive air suspension. So what makes luxury vehicles so distinctive? And can Greenville drivers get the same luxury feel for less money by opting for top trims of regular vehicles?

Luxury Cars are Different From the Start

When people think of luxury vehicles, they often think of leather seats, sporty engines and a high price tag. But to understand what sets luxury cars apart, it is critical to go to the very foundation of the vehicle. After all, luxury vehicles are designed to different standards and specifications than regular vehicles from the very beginning. By understanding the differences between luxury and regular vehicles in this way, Greer-area customers can gain a deeper appreciation for what sets luxury vehicles apart.

When luxury automakers craft a vehicle, they take a holistic approach to optimizing the driving experience. This means that all parts, from the powertrain to the electrical components, must work completely in harmony with each other. This approach allows luxury vehicles to provide a distinctive, perfectly tuned ride. Yet to properly achieve the desired performance, building a luxury vehicle requires special care and attention to detail at levels beyond what mass-market carmakers put in to their machines.

Advanced Technology

Another aspect of luxury cars that sets them apart is the level of technological offerings available. Features that are new in the latest model year of a luxury car often do not show up for a few more years in mass-market offerings. And by this time, the luxury vehicle makers will have moved on to new innovations.

Yet with all of this attention to detail and futuristic technology, luxury cars are often cheaper than their mass-market alternatives. The base-level Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint may be more expensive than the base level of a mass-market vehicle. Yet the low trims on a mass-market vehicle provide very few comforts, features or distinctive pieces. To actually approximate a luxury vehicle feel, drivers must look to the far more expensive, higher-end trims of the base model lineup. Thus, drivers who require the luxury experience in their vehicles will find that Alfa Romeo can sometimes offer a significant savings as opposed to a comparable top trim of a mass-market vehicle.

Luxury Vehicles - A Truly Distinctive Experience

Luxury vehicles are far more than just top trim levels of mass-market cars and SUVs. Rather, the luxury vehicle experience starts with a holistic design approach, adds in layers of futuristic technology and finishes off with real leather, wood and carbon fiber accents. And the result is that the base trim of a luxury vehicle is often less expensive than the similarly equipped top trim of a mass market car. Luxury vehicles are truly different indeed.
