Luxury Car of the Year 2021: Audi A8

Best Luxury Car Award in partnership with… Today's Golfer

 

To be a great luxury car you need more than ample space and generous amounts of kit. You need class, comfort and poise – and with so many top-flight cars available, we struggled narrowing down this list to three. The winning Audi A8 offers masses of appeal for businesses, drivers and, most importantly, the VIP in the back.

This generation of Audi A8 has been around since 2018, but continuous development from its maker, combined with the introduction of a new plug-in hybrid version gives it enough armoury to take the overall honours in the Best Luxury Car award. The A8 is packed with every conceivable driver aid and is decked with a tech-laden interior that's trimmed in the very finest materials. But despite being designed to provide the maximum comfort for its occupants, the driver gets a great deal too, as the A8 is brilliant to drive and seldom feels its size on the road.

You have to hand it to the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. It's a runner-up in the Best Luxury Car award just as it's about to be replaced by an all-new model. That hopefully goes some way to convey its sheer brilliance. Whether you’re behind the wheel enjoying the silky smooth engines and impressive comfort, or luxuriating in the reclined rear seats with its entertainment system, the S-Class oozes restrained comfort and relaxation. It’s also packed with advanced safety and driver assistance technology that makes life on the road as easy and stress-free as possible.

Best Luxury Car - Range Rover

RANGE ROVER

The Range Rover is a British luxury icon now celebrating its 50th birthday. Like all generations since its 1970 launch, it incorporates an impressive spread of talents into its big off-roading body. Just because it’s hugely capable off-road (it’s one of the best), doesn’t mean you can’t turn up to a fine restaurant in the evening after a day in the rough stuff. The engine range is comprehensive, offering a plug-in hybrid version, and the interior is full of soft leather and the latest tech Land Rover has to offer. The Range Rover really is a high-end jack-of-all-trades.
