Top 10 luxury cars in Sri Lanka 2018 - the best cars to be seen in this year

Sri Lanka's luxury vehicle market is rapidly growing, with more luxury brands now available for personal use. Here are a look at the top 10 (in no particular order) luxury cars in demand this year.

1

Range Rover

The latest generation of Range Rover is focused on proving a premium experience to drivers. While it has the typical heavy range rover body, which provides excellent protection from abrasions, the interior is all about comfort and luxury. The spacious interior features comfortable seating and detailed design around the dashboard, while steering on this elegant beast is enjoyable.

2

Audi A8

The latest Audi A8 is designed with an advanced chassis and in-car tech that has positioned it far ahead of several of luxury brands, in terms of autonomous driving. While the interior may not be up to the standards of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the car is easy to manoeuvre and the ride smooth, making this a top favourite.

BMW 7 Series

The 7 Series features an air sprung chassis, ground-breaking infotainment options, and several convenience features such as rear or 4-wheel drive. The interior is sophisticated, and the powerful engine is quiet and efficient. This is a surprisingly good entrant to the luxury car market that could soon come out on top.

4

Jaguar XJ

The most recent edition of the Jaguar XJ features a sporty designed that has been softened by the fluid lines of a typically elegant Jaguar chassis. The interior is filled with a sense of style and drama not commonly seen in other brands, however, it does trail behind in terms of onboard tech. The XJ can be best described as somewhere between the sportiness of a Maserati and the sleek Mercedes S-Class.

5

Mercedes-Benz S-Class

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class series was designed with luxury in mind - the car functions with barely a noise, while steering is precise. The spacious interior is elegant and features a 12-inch screen with the standard and Mercedes' Comand Online system. The S-Class is a firm favourite among businessmen in the country, and most reputed rental companies, like Casons Rent a Car Sri Lanka, for example, do hire out the Mercedes-Benz S-Class to businessmen and travellers looking for luxury car rental in Sri Lanka.

6

Lexus LS

The recent Lexus LS has received a chic refurbishment, with an interior that looks modern and opulent. However, the LS fails to compete with the likes of the A8 or S-Class - the engine that works too hard to move its heavy shell, making the ride merely pleasant. Still, if the look is more important than the ride itself, the LS still delivers a quality design that's hard to ignore.

7

BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo

The BMW 6 Series GT features the same wheelbase as the 7 Series along with the raised seating position of the 5 series, despite the lowered roof. The interior is smaller but gives the impression of a well-crafted vehicle, with plenty of space. The engine power provides a strong ride that makes up for its otherwise lack of elegance.

8

Tesla Model S

The Model S has finally managed to bring luxury, and credibility to the electric car market. The car features four battery options that handle like a saloon, but even more exciting is how precisely you can measure out its speed. The car delivers a large cabin pace with a futuristic feel, couple this with the environmental aspects, you can just about justify the huge price tag on this.

9

Maserati Quattroporte

The latest Quattroporte looks to be competing with the Jaguar XJ in combining a luxury interior with a sporting feel. The interior is absolutely amazing, although when compared to German makes, it still falls short in quality. The natural flair of the brand helps to position it among luxury cars, but it remains far behind in several areas.

10

Hyundai Genesis

The idea of a Hyundai as a luxury car seems far-fetched, but the Genesis features an improved interior than previous models and tech to rival some of the best German cars. It's an ambitious entrant from Hyundai, but still has some way to go.
