Luxury cars are completely different animals compared to ordinary cars. Sure, they mainly serve the same purpose, which is to transport people from point A to point B but that’s where the similarity ends. They need to achieve that objective while also providing passengers with extremely high levels of comfort and convenience.
To do this, luxury vehicles are made using only the finest quality materials. Of course, they also have several features that truly set them apart from the rest of the automotive world. Not all of those features and options are very useful but they are oh so luxurious. Here are some of the most opulent but totally unnecessary features that can be found in luxury cars:
- BMW Seat Belt Extenders
Ah, yes, the BMW seat belt extender/grabber/giver. Why reach for your seat belt by yourself when you can have a mechanical arm push it closer to you, right?
- Mercedes Benz/Maybach Granite Interior Trim

If you can use it on kitchen counter tops, then by God, you can use it on a car’s interior! Never mind that it’s extremely heavy and makes your engine work harder than it has to. Fuel economy? What in the world is that?
- Cadillac Cup Holders

You see that thing over the cup holders, that cover? Well, it slides in and out of view depending on whether you need to use your cup holders or not. Of course, you don’t just slide the cover away manually. Oh no, no, no. You simply touch it and it moves away and back. It’s like magic!
- Porsche Leather Vents
- Rolls-Royce Starlight Headliner
Why go out to see the stars in the sky when you can see them right inside your car, right? Totally unnecessary and totally awesome.
And there you have it. Proof that luxury cars are on a completely different level compared to the cars that we drive everyday. Can you think of other luxury car features that we could add to the list?
