2019 Luxury Cars

The luxury car market gets more intense every year. As more technology and features trickle down to more mainstream cars, luxury car makers have to continue to innovate to set themselves apart and create new benchmarks for the segment.

Pros and Cons of Luxury Cars

Pros: Luxury cars are often where you will see the most innovation. Luxury cars put an emphasis on comfort and quiet for all passengers. More restrained in their design, luxury cars often are all about quiet confidence and not being too flashy.

Cons: Luxury cars can be very expensive and because they often have a performance element, they will almost always require premium fuel and be more costly to insure.

What’s New in Luxury Cars for 2019?

BMW debuted the new 7th-generation 3 Series. More high tech than ever before, it comes with all the driver assistance and safety tech as well as a slick new infotainment system with a personal assistant that you can talk to naturally, using the command “Hey BMW” to operate it. The new 3 grows in size yet managed to keep its weight in check and BMW has promised that the driving dynamics are more focused than before.

The BMW 8 Series has returned after a 20-year break as the German automaker’s new flagship coupe. Large and in charge, this ultra-luxurious two-door model makes a big statement. Powered by a hefty 4.4L twin-turbo V8, the M850 has 530 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. BMW also paid extra attention to the interior of this luxury grand tourer, giving it lots of luxury and cutting-edge technology. The 5 Series and M5 were also recently overhauled and Alpina came out with a super 7 Series.

The Mercedes E-Class is classy and high-tech and the German automaker has come out with its new CLS, the original “four-door coupe.” The new CLS brings back the inline six engine, which is augmented by a new 48-volt mild hybrid electrical system that should bolster both fuel economy and performance. Mercedes also has a new 53 Series of AMG models that are all hybridized in the same way using EQ Boost.

Mercedes-Benz's A-Class Sedan is here and will set a new benchmark for small luxury sedans. A brand new CLA has also debuted and fixes many complaints we had about the former entry-level four-door. Mercedes-AMG also came out with its new and inaccurately named AMG GT 4 Door Coupe. It's a four-door version of the AMG GT sports car but actually share more in common to the E-Class.

The Volvo S60 (and its V60 wagon variant) is all-new for 2019 and is probably the best-driving Volvo yet. With a certain crispness and balance other Volvos lack, it seems to be a worthy 3 Series, Audi A4 or Mercedes C-Class competitor. The S60 gives us a lot of what we liked about the S90 but in a smaller package.

The second-generation of the Porsche Panamera debuted with an all-new platform and a sharp new look to match. As always, effortless driving with a healthy dose of scalding performance can be expected. The interior was also simplified and made more user-friendly. It’s also available in many different variants, including a Sport Turismo model, which is essentially a wagon. A GTS model has also debuted to slot under the topline Turbo.

The Audi A8/S8 and A7/S7 are also all new for this year. Built on an entirely new platform, these big luxury four-doors are packed with all the latest tech and safety features. Also in the Audi family, the A5/S5 coupe, convertible, and sportback models were recently overhauled with better driving dynamics and more tech as well.

The Genesis G70 has been hailed as a legitimate 3 Series competitor and has been awarded as AutoGuide.com’s 2019 Car of the Year. Bringing an excellent mix of desirability, cool factor, luxury, tech and driving dynamics, the G70 is an excellent all-around package that really raises the bar. The large and luxurious G90 got a refresh for 2019 that updates the looks pretty dramatically.

Over at Lexus, the IS needs to be updated soon but the ES was recently overhauled with a thoughtful interior and better driving dynamics without sacrificing the comfort and quietness you are right to expect from Lexus.

What’s Coming in Luxury Cars?

Expect Genesis (Hyundai’s luxury brand) to come out with more impressive offerings. The Porsche Taycan is coming soon as the automaker’s first electric car. The Porsche Pajun is also rumored as a smaller Panamera. Audi will be coming out with a full electric sedan soon.

Expect more luxury cars to embrace hybridization and electrification.
