India has never had any dearth of luxury cars. All luxury carmakers have a wide portfolio in India ranging from sedans to XL-size SUVs. Picking the best luxury cars in India out of all options available might be a tiring task at hand. But we have curated a list of India’s 10 best luxury cars on various parameters. For instance, we have included entry-level luxury models which offer value without skimping on the feel-good factor that we come to associate with luxury cars. 

We have also thrown in some executive luxury sedans into the mix which offer the best backseat experience –  a mandatory requirement of a luxury sedan that costs north of Rs 50 lakhs. And no list is complete without the inclusion of SUVs which announce your arrival with that much-needed road presence. But, what all these 10 cars in this list have in common is the quintessential opulence, thanks to a well-appointed rich cabin and a host of features.
