What is luxury?

German carmaker Mercedes-Benz has to do miracles when it comes to their new models planned to be developed next, the Mercedes-Benz X-Class. Around 30 yeas ago, the manufacturer introduced for the first time the C-Class also knows as the Baby Benz and even then there were a lot of debates on when and how to develop it. Closer to our days, the carmaker has introduced the downsized B-class and also the A-Class lines. Now we are waiting for the X-Class. This model comes after the G that came after the GLC, also after the CLS, CLA and SLK. We can all agree with the fact that nowadays most carmaker think of white interior when having luxury in mind. Here we also have to mention Cadillac, Lincoln, Lexus and also Jaguar. A few years ago it was actually very easy to define luxury cars. They were big, heavy, and powerful and have a lot of leather and wood. These are no longer the characteristics as some of the fastest growth is occurring in the most downsized luxury segments. The situation is a bit confusing now and it is even more difficult now to tell luxury from regular.



Kia and Chrysler, for example offer leather in their luxury vehicles and Ford thought of adding several high-tech elements like for example, the Sync and MyFord Touch infotainment system to advanced safety hardware. Here we have to mention the cross-traffic alert system that was first revealed on the Taurus and a few others. This year at the New York International Auto Show we had the opportunity to see for the first time the updated version of the Equus. Hyundai is also thinking of different options to include in the production version of the HND-9 sport coupe concept which has been released at the Seoul Motor Show. Changes will continue to happen in this industry, and fast.
