According to Luxury Cars A 2 Z, in the U.S., 37.9 per cent of compact luxury car purchases in 2021 were by women. Certainly, women represent a sizeable demographic, and carmakers have responded by keeping them in mind while designing their latest models. Here, we will look at five best luxury cars for women.
- Bentley Continental GT

Bentley’s Continental GT follows in the tradition of the 1950s R-Type salon model, a cruiser that caught the fancy of the elite class of female consumers of that time. The six models under this line house W12 or eight-speed engines and are designed as off-roaders or convertibles. The power of the engines is enhanced with the Active All-Wheel Drive system, which optimizes distribution on both axles whenever necessary. Another plus is the Bentley Dynamic Ride, a system designed to enhance stability and handling while maintaining speed on corners. The interior exudes sophistication with the use of the finest nappa leather and upholstery.

Mercedes-Benz’s GLE class launched the luxury SUV segment in the company’s portfolio. One of the most visibly impressive features is the Mercedes star, shining brightly at the front bumper, and the wide rear shoulders — the car is designed to be spacious with the option to add a third row for seven-seating capacity, great for road trips and families. The interior is sleek and sophisticated. Meanwhile, the tech features, such as natural language recognition, traffic jam detection, and pleasant flow of fragrance create the quintessential Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX).

2022 Lexus ES has three models — ES 250 AWD, ES 350, and ES 300h — with tiered pricing to support a variety of different features. The distinguishing characteristic of the exterior is the coupe-like shape, with the spindle grille resembling a web like structure carrying the logo at the front. For women who value safety, it’s great to know that it has been awarded the Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and has a five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in the U.S.

Not only for the environmentally conscious, Tesla’s Model S is also for tech-savvy women who enjoy features like autopilot cruise control and charging at Tesla stations. It also includes an app that enables remote locking/unlocking, flashing lights, honking. Women might also appreciate sensors with accurate distance measurements in inches, plus web browsing and streaming services.
- Cadillac XT5

The most basic luxury trim offers features such as an eight-speaker BOSE sound system, Cadillac Smart System™, Inteluxe leatherite upholstery in black with aluminum touches, and a turbo four-cylinder engine. To meet user experience demands, the intelligent infotainment system is equipped with an 8″ diagonal HD color touchscreen, natural voice recognition, and embedded navigation (map coverage).
