Top 10 Luxury Car Companies

With the magnificent bodies and performance of such vehicles, the demand for such car brands is completely inelastic. No matter what the financial situation in the world may be, there will always be a segment of buyers who will be looking to purchase the models from any of these car manufacturers.

Lexus
Lexus is the luxury car segment of Japanese manufacturers, Toyota. Currently, Lexus cars are the best-selling luxury vehicles in the United States. These cars are also offered to 70 different countries around the world.

BMW
Coming in at a close second (in the US market) is the German car and motorcycle maker, BMW (Bavarian Motor Works). They make some of the best luxury vehicles in the world, and they also own the well-known Rolls-Royce Motors flagship.

Cadillac
Surprisingly, Cadillac luxury vehicles are much more popular in the US than the Mercedes. These brands are manufactured in the US itself (by General Motors), so they do cost a little bit lesser than all these other brands.

Mercedes-Benz
Easily one of the most well-known and easily recognizable luxury car brand around the world, this German brand owned by Daimler AG is the epitome of car luxury and premium vehicles.

Audi
Another German based brand, the Audi brand is owned and parented by Volkswagen AG today. It is slowly spreading to all parts of the world, and is one of the best brands around.

Acura
The Japanese manufacturer Honda also has a luxury car segment, and these vehicles are sold under the flagship of Acura. There are not many choices available under the Acura brand, but they are all solid vehicles with more than just a dash of class.

Maybach
Out of all the luxury brands, Maybachs are perhaps the most expensive of the lot. This is just another great German brand, and it is owned by Daimler AG, the company that also manufactures the Mercedes-Benz.

Maserati
An Italian car brand that is so famous all over the globe has to be affiliated to the Fiat group. The Maserati series were initially clubbed with Ferrari, but recently it has merged with the Alfa Romeo flagship.

Bentley
Bentleys were introduced to the world by Great Britain during World War I, but recently they were taken over by the Volkswagen AG group in Germany. This is yet another illustration of the power and reach of German automobile manufacturers in the world.

Infiniti
The Infiniti flagship is the luxury segment of the Japanese manufacturers, Nissan motors. This is not a very well-known brand, but their reach is slowly expanding, as they are exporting cars to almost 15 different countries today.

You may have noticed that German car makers dominate this list, followed closely by Japanese makers. These are the countries whose economies are running on the income derived from the export of their vehicles.

Luxury cars come in various models and types. From sedans to coupes, and sports cars to convertibles, luxury cars are seen everywhere these days. In addition to the above, here are some more famous names from across the globe.
  • Jaguar
  • Lincoln
  • Land Rover
  • Aston Martin
  • Lamborghini
