The ideal used luxury car for an individual is highly dependent on their needs. One of the first questions that we like to ask here at Frank Kent Cadillac is if you are focused on the driver experience or are you more interested in transporting people? With that information and a general idea of your price range, we can begin to make suggestions on the right car for you. Let’s explore some of the possibilities to help you achieve a greater understanding.
If you’re going to be the one driving your used luxury car, then you are going to want to focus on the features that directly affect you. Always test drive the vehicle before purchasing it, you’re not just purchasing a sedan so simply “Getting you from point A to point B” isn’t enough. You want to make sure that the car steers tight, your luxury car should be able to cruise straight and hit bumps with little to jar to the driver. Some cars, a 2018 Cadillac CTS, are great for drivers that like some pep when they stomp on the gas pedal. Other features that enhance the driving experience includes heated/cooled seats, back up cameras, built-in wifi, and proper sound systems. If you’re just looking for a comfortable used luxury vehicle and you only plan on driving yourself and a spouse, consider getting a luxury coupe like the ATS or a sedan like the CTS.
Now maybe you’re not worried about the driving experience as much. You care more that your passengers will be comfortable. If that is the case, you’re best option would be to opt for an SUV over a coupe or sedan. While an executive would have no problem working out of the back of a 2019 CT6 with its 40.40 inches of legroom, we can generally agree that the more space, the merrier. If you’ve got people or cargo to transport, even the base model Escalade has a total cargo volume of 94.20 cu.ft. That is plenty of space to fit seven adults or a month's worth of supplies for a camping trip. Whether or not your used luxury car is a daily driver or for special occasions, at Frank Kent Cadillac we will be happy to find you the right model and financing options all under one roof.
Style and Elegance
The beauty of luxury cars is that they stand out amongst a gray backdrop of average sedans and SUVs. A proper luxury car looks subtly understated yet commands presence and helps reflect the driver's professional personality to the world. When most people think of luxury cars, their mind thinks back to the boxy, heavy automobiles of the 1970s. Cars like the DeVille and the Monte Carlo were iconic for the way they put style and rigor over things like aerodynamics and efficiency. Today's cars share a lot of DNA with their early ancestors, but they’ve also come a long way. Whereas early luxury cars were gas-guzzling boats, modern luxury cars, in contrast, are fairly uncompromised. Today you can get a sleek look, great range, a powerful engine, and a lot of features.
Modern luxury cars are big, but they are not bigger than they need to be. Luxury cars often come with strong engines, but fuel efficiency has become a modern-day requirement. A vehicle like the 2019 Cadillac ATS is an incredible value for those looking to break into the luxury market. In an entry-level vehicle you a vehicle with crisp edges, tasteful curves, a 335 horsepower engine and over 25 miles per gallon. Earlier model years will have you sitting in the lap of luxury, from great features to a powerful engine. If you appreciated the safe feeling that the large vehicles of old provided, Frank Kent has the constantly rotating inventory to help you find something with a little more bulk. Even the base model Cadillac SUV, the XT4, comes in at over fifteen feet long and slightly over 3,500 lbs. That’s just the start; if you have a need for something bigger and sturdier, there is a Cadillac for everyone.
They’re Powerful Too
When it comes to the luxury market, car manufacturers know that proper acceleration and top speed are standard features to be expected. Luxury cars also have a higher chance of mechanical features like turbos or eco-boost options. Luxury cars, however, are not race cars. With a luxury car, you expect to be brought up to speed but not so much so that you feel like you could lose control. When you stomp on the gas pedal in a luxury car, you are subtly and smoothly rowed through the gears. Pay attention to the drive train as well. Whereas most standard cars come in front-wheel drive, luxury cars are more likely to come with rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive standard.
