There are a lot of luxury car brands out there. Let’s start with the well-known European models like BMW, Audi, and Mercedes-Benz. You can also consider brands like Rolls-Royce, Bentley, and others but they are far less common and come with a far higher price tag. Outside of Europe, Japan also has several luxury brands including INFINITI, Lexus, and Acura. Korea also has one luxury brand available here called Genesis.

Of course, you also have the U.S. brands. Both Chevy and Ford each have luxury lines with Cadillac and Lincoln respectively. GM also has two brands that sort of sit in between Chevy and Cadillac with the more luxury-focused Buick and GMC lineups.
