Is prestige the same as luxury?

As outlined above, prestige is another term for luxury, so arguably, prestige is the same as luxury. It is possible that some dealers may dispute this or query the difference; however, by definition, prestige means luxury, and therefore, we would consider prestige luxury vehicles.

What does prestige include?

Prestige includes a number of distinguishing features, as outlined above. These may include advanced technologies that are developed by the car brand themselves, often some years before these technologies make it into mainstream vehicles. Often, the interior finishes of a luxury car are much more high-end and include leather suede, polished chrome, and even carbon fibre. The paint finishes are often much richer with deep lacquers, and it is easy to see the difference between a family car paint finish and a prestige car paint finish.

The detail around the car may also be much more improved. This can be trim, high-end alloy wheels, performance racing suspension and tires. We might also expect prestige cars to have high-quality tinting and a road that is significant and meaningful.
