In 2021, the large luxury car segment in the U.S. offered buyers a blend of opulence, performance, cutting-edge technology, and brand prestige. While this segment, like other sedan categories, faced challenges from the surging popularity of luxury SUVs, these cars still catered to those who appreciated the traditional luxury sedan experience.

A flagship for the Mercedes-Benz brand, the S-Class has long been a benchmark for luxury, technology, and comfort in the segment. In 2021, the S-Class received a new generation update with even more advanced features, including a massive central OLED screen and augmented reality head-up display. Another major player, the 7 Series from BMW combined luxury with the brand’s signature driving dynamics. The range also included plug-in hybrid variants.

Audi’s flagship sedan, the Audi A8, emphasized technology and refinement. Features like the MMI touch response system and advanced driver-assistance technologies kept it competitive in the segment. Lexus’s flagship LS sedan has always been known for its impeccable build quality and reliability. The 2021 model continued to offer a mix of traditional luxury with modern tech.

Blending sports car dynamics with luxury sedan comfort, the Panamera was unique in the segment. It was available in various configurations, including a hybrid model. The luxury arm of Hyundai, Genesis, aimed to disrupt the traditional luxury market with the G90. It offered similar (or sometimes even more) features as its German competitors but at a more competitive price point.
