The 2018 Jaguar XE SVR is among the most awaited luxury cars. The luxury sedan XE is getting an SVR variant and it is aimed at buyers who seek extra in terms of everything- power, luxury, and customization. It will have a body made largely of aluminum. Even carbon fiber body parts are expected since JLR wants SVR variants to be lightweight. The sedan may be loaded with the company’s supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 engine. With estimated price tag of $65000, it will lock horns with rivals like Mercedes-AMG C63, BMW M3, and Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio.
Another luxury sedan worth waiting for is the 2018 Audi A6. It is meant to take on segment rivals like the venerable BMW 5-Series and Mercedes E-Class. Based on the famous MLB platform, the 2018 A6 will be lightweight than its predecessor. The hybrid powertrain is also expected and it is likely to be shown at 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. A rugged all-road version may also be launched, as per industry buzz. It may feature a new haptic touch screen in the cabin.
The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe has been caught testing minus camouflages and it seems to be a nice luxury vehicle. It resembles its smaller sibling, the C-Class coupe from outside though the taillights will be different. The powertrain choices are good with turbocharged V6 and V8 units being on offer. The infotainment system may also be given a boost. The same can be said about safety features.
The 2019 Cadillac CT8 is another luxury sedan worth looking forward to. Cadillac’s upcoming flagship sedan is aimed at luxury limo buyers who want no compromise either in performance or luxury factor. Like the smaller sibling, CT6, the CT8 is also based on the company’s Omega platform. The mixture of high strength steel and aluminum ensures it has a lightweight body. The model may get a plug-in hybrid version and it will be pitted against Jaguar XJ and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. It may have a price tag of $90.000 or more, as per the industry buzz.
The 2019 Lamborghini Asterion is also among those luxury cars that are aimed at buyers who want a stunner of four wheels and do not care about the price tag. It is a dual seat hybrid car vying for attention with the likes of Porsche 918 Spyder and Ferrari LaFerrari. Plenty of carbon fiber and aluminum ensures the car is not heavy. The total output is an insane 897 HP and it reaches 60 mph from 0 in only 3 seconds.
