A run through the best of luxury cars of 2021
A great idea is put into action when it comes to crafting a luxury drive with all the possible inputs that one could think of in a luxury car. Moreover, with the growing need for a plush feel while you are on the road, luxury vehicles are a great fit (and a big hit)!
The year 2021 was packed with an unending list of luxury to choose from. In this passing year, many luxury car manufacturers tried to establish a greater role in the Indian automobile industry. As the year comes to an end, we present to you some of the best ones from 2021:
Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600
Mercedes, a German-manufactured vehicular luxury, is one of the best in the segment. It is quite well-known when it comes to being at the forefront of vehicular ideation and bringing out the best-in-class driving dynamics. And all of these come together in a perfect blend with the all-new Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600. Priced at ₹2.43 crore, ex-showroom, it is one of the highly luxury-driven automobiles out there presented by the German manufacturers. With features such as climate-controlled seats with massage function, rear entertainment system, electrically extendable ottoman, refrigerator with space for champagne bottle, silver champagne flutes, and more, it makes the Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 one of the most expensive SUVs in the world. Powered by a 4.0-litre V8 turbo petrol engine that develops 550 bhp and 730 Nm, along with the 48-Volt hybrid system that offers up to 21 bhp and 250 Nm of instantaneous torque, it brings along some great numbers for a massive vehicle like this.
Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR
The British manufacturers present their latest rendition of craftsmanship with the all-new Range Rover Sport SVR. The new addition to the Range Rover vehicle is the slightly renditioned sport SVR. It is, in a way, a better chiselled one, as the exterior seems to be a bit sharper than the last one from the same family. Yet the bold and commanding stance of the car is still there and can very much act as an assertive part of the whole experience. Being powered by a turbocharged V8 engine helps the SVR to glide past 100kmph in just 4.7 seconds. With the 8 cylinders incorporated together, it displaces 4999 cc. Furthermore, it gives a power of 542 bhp and a torque of 680 Nm at 3500rpm to 4000rpm. The driver can be a bit more relaxed with a command driving positioning program, a gradient acceleration control, and a speed proportional electric power assisted steering function, since these are some great sets of functional tools to play around with. Interiors have not received much of a refreshing touch as much as the exterior yet can deliver some much-needed comfort ride on demand. The Land Rover Range Rover Sport is priced at a starting range of ₹91.27 lakh and goes up to ₹2.19 crore.
The Germans are back again on the list. It seems like they are constantly in a mad rush to get their consumers the best in class and at a faster and sturdy pace too. While the Maybach GLS 600 is what we were talking about earlier, this one is a bit special as the Germans have introduced one of their flagship cars back with some cosmetic changes and that too at an amazing price point. The variant is priced at ₹1.57 – 1.61 crore, ex-showroom Delhi. The new S-class gets a 12.3-inch digital driver’s display, a 12.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, connected car tech, and two wireless phone chargers. It is also equipped with a 64-colour ambient lighting, a panoramic sunroof, and 20-inch alloy wheels. A well-suited idea for your plush ride has got a bit more luxurious.
Jaguar F-Pace SVR
The all-new Jaguar F-Pace SVR is one of the most recent vehicles from the UK manufacturers to be on par with all the luxury SUVs out there. The sheer idea of having a combination of great driving dynamics and plush feel is what makes the F-Pace SVR a great deal for the luxury vehicle enthusiasts. The SVR tag is enough to have a clear-cut idea that the car is an embodiment of performance and sublime luxury packed into one. The F-Pace SVR has now been launched in the country with a price tag of ₹1.51 crore (ex-showroom). Power figures on offer are a 4999 cc engine which is available with an automatic transmission. The 4999 cc engine puts out 543.11bhp at 6250-6500rpm of power and 700 Nm at 3500-5000rpm of torque. With so much power on offer, one might as well take this beast on whatever terrain they feel like.
BMW 740Li M Sport edition
The new BMW 740Li M Sport edition is somewhat a great mix of both worlds: a big luxury vehicle enveloped with some great power figures. It would be an oversimplification of the whole German manufacturing to just call this car a simple luxury vehicle. The BMW has priced its flagship sedan, the 740Li M Sport edition in the country at around ₹1.43 crore. This variant is available in 21 colors to pick from. Power figures such as 2998 cc engine is available with an automatic transmission. The 2998 cc engine puts out 335.25 bhp at 5400-6500rpm of power and 450 Nm at 1500-2000rpm of torque. With so much power delivery, one could easily cruise at a great speed with all the comfort in the world. Smoothness is what one would experience when they drive around in a luxury ride like this which is almost as long as a limousine. Space is what makes the all-new BMW 740Li M Sport edition a big hit.
Last year being such an underwhelming experience for most of the vehicle manufacturers, the coming time seems like a perfect time to indulge in the luxury of your preference with all the new luxury vehicles that have rolled down the lane. It would not be an exaggeration to say that the luxury line of vehicles seems to be doing a great job when it comes to bringing new vehicles on to the shores of India. With so many upcoming vehicles, you can be at ease as we keep a regular check on what to pick for your next upgrade.
