In addition, it also has blind-spot monitoring, which is important when you’re on the highway.
The 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe is a great mid-sized SUV that has plenty of high-tech tricks hiding up its sleeves. The blind spot camera helps you to keep track of where everything is when you’re changing lanes or trying to get off the highway on an exit ramp so that you’re not going to run in anything you can’t see. This safety measure extends to when you’re already parked, too; there is a safe existing assist mode that warns you if there are cars approaching from the rear before you open your car door to get out. They built this high-tech model with your safety in mind.
Although the Nissan Altima came out at a time when other sedans had driver-assistance technologies, the Altima took it a step forward by providing ProPilot Assist. This partially automated system helps you reduce driver fatigue on the road; not many people realize just how tiring driving can be. The vehicle helps by managing braking, steering, and acceleration on the highway so that you don’t feel so exhausted when you get to your destination. In addition, the Altima is also equipped with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support so that you can listen to your favorite entertainment on the go.
The Chevrolet Spark may seem on the cheaper end of this list, but it doesn’t hold back when it comes to providing you with high-tech options that will keep you comfortable and entertained.

It is also equipped with onboard Wi-Fi hot spot support and has connectivity to both Android and Apple devices. This is more of a car that’s suited for the urban dweller rather than someone who frequents the highway very often but still packs a little punch when put to the test.
The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L is by no means a sedan, with three rows of seats on the inside, but you’re guaranteed to keep everyone comfortable in all three rows with the kind of equipment installed in this bad boy.

And this is due to the hybrid engine that is also electric so that you can save on gas if you’re not going very far.

The 2021 Chevrolet Corvette is one of the sleekest cars out there, and it definitely has the backbone to prove itself when it comes to the technology that it sports.

Not only does it have front- and rear-wheel drive, but it also has magnetic ride control that takes the handling on this vehicle to an entirely new level. It has a powerful V8 engine with almost 500 horsepower, allowing it to go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just three seconds.

Nothing says luxury or “cool car” quite like the Aston Martin. It can go over 200 miles per hour and accelerate from 0-60 in 3.4 seconds. James Bond has been using the Aston Martin since 1964, and the brand has held a Royal Warrant to manufacture cars for the Prince of Wales since 1982. Want to feel like royalty or a super spy? The Aston Martin is the way to go. Today’s Aston Martin’s have features that would tantalize James Bond, including a frame made of carbon fiber, 460 horsepower and 400 pounds per foot of torque, and leather upholstery with metallic lining. These modern cars look like a streak of lightning.
If your idea of luxury is a roomy interior with all the bells and whistles, rather than the Aston Martin luxury sports car, then you might see Cadillacs as more your thing. The 2022 Escalade comes with an audio system that uses 19 speakers, heated seats, super cruise driver assistance, night vision, parking assistance, and pedestrian assistance. The cockpit interface looks like you are flying a plane, not driving a car. Maybe you cannot afford the price tag, which starts at close to $80,000, but you can still appreciate the luxury and tech that the Cadillac Escalade offers.
The only downside to the Escalade is its fuel economy. The V8 engine provides a high-power towing capacity but sacrifices mileage. Plenty of other carmakers are turning to EVs to help the transition away from fossil fuels and help avoid a complete climate apocalypse. When Cadillac begins making an Escalade EV, it will indeed be unstoppable.
The Acura MDX is a super high-tech car with all the bells and whistles, starting with three rows of seats that make it perfect for a family car. The 290 horsepower V6 engine is complemented by an Integrated Dynamics System that adds thrill to drive. The audio system has 25 (yes, 25!) speakers, and these cars have enough safety features that the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has awarded it a Top Safety Pick + designation in 2021. Like the Cadillac Escalade, the Acura MDX only loses points on fuel economy; it gets between 21 and 26 miles per gallon on the highway and fewer in the city. Once Acura comes out with an EV version, this SUV will be ready for some serious road-tripping.
The Hyundai Sonata has a much lower price point than many other luxuries, high-tech cars, with a starting price of around $25,000 for the 2022 model, making it both fun to drive and more affordable. If you are looking for sharp-handling cars, the Honda Accord may be more up your alley. Still, the Sonata has a turbocharged engine that boasts nearly 200 horsepower — not bad at all for a family sedan. The N-line Sonata has 290 horsepower for drivers who want more power. Unlike other luxury cars, the Sonata has a hybrid version and may soon have a full EV version, preparing it for a world without fossil fuels. Keep reading for more details about the coolest and most high-tech cars available today, like EVs and other amazing features.
If you want to see a high-end luxury car fueled by the sun, the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E is right up your alley. This modern car is an EV that can you can recharge from a solar-powered charging station; it can go from 10% to 80% in just 45 minutes on a fast-charging one. If your home has solar panels that will provide enough energy to power this car, you could get it to charge every night while you sleep. No more trips to the pump! Plus, the EPA estimates a range of over 300 miles on a single charge. However, there is more to being a luxury car than running on sunshine. This one delivers everything that you would expect from a Ford Mustang, complete with a modern look that is more SUV than a car. The 2022 model boasts a heated steering wheel so that your hands don’t freeze while waiting for the car to warm up in cold weather. The GT performance model features 634 pounds per foot of torque and 480 horsepower.
The Audi R8 Coupe 10 is a high-tech car with all the bells and whistles you could ask for, except for mileage. It is basically a street-legal racecar that can get up to 200 miles per hour.

The engine’s firing sequence gives it a special sound that will make you feel like you are on a NASCAR track. A personalized dynamic handling system will adapt to each individual driver. On the outside, the car’s sleek, horizontal lines give it the appearance of blades rushing through the wind. The back has a diffuser, metal grille, and two tailpipes for the ultimate street-worthy appearance. The cockpit uses voice recognition software that can be customized to only respond to you.
The Telluride is a high-end luxury car that can take you wherever life goes, including off the road. It is Kia’s largest car and, in 2020, was named the SUV of the Year by MotorTrend, as well as Car of the Year. Seating eight people and with plenty of safety features, the Telluride is the perfect family car for people who enjoy getting off the beaten path. Its low production level is making this car more in-demand than some of its competitors — including competitors that get better than the Telluride’s estimated 23 miles per gallon. Once Kia creates an EV version of the Telluride, it may well be the best SUV in history. In addition to the great mileage, the Telluride also offers a number of features to ensure your comfort, including heated and ventilated seats in the back so that your other passengers are always comfortable and a standard 10.25 touch screen so that the right directions are always at your fingertips.
The Swedish company Volvo has done it again by creating the 2022 Volvo S90. This model is the company’s flagship mid-size sedan, and every year it gets better and better. The impressive seats are some of the best in the car’s class, the model costs less than similar models that it competes against, and plenty of safety features come standard. The interior trim of oak, ash, and walnut will make you feel like you are driving a much more expensive car, for a starting price of about $53,000 — less than an Aston Martin but for a similar feel. Adding to this car’s appeal is that it also comes as a plug-in hybrid, meaning that its fuel economy competes with cars that are less powerful.
If you want to imagine yourself in your very own Batmobile, then take a look at BMW’s 2022 7-Series.

BMW is now offering a plug-in option that allows the car to go 17 miles on sunshine before switching over to gasoline, making this car a good option for those looking for a more eco-friendly vehicle option. The turbocharged engine makes for a velvety-smooth ride, and the shocks and suspensions make even bumpy roads feel like glass. If you want to spring a little more, you can invest in the remote-control parking feature that allows you to park the car while you’re not in it. This allows you to safely park your car in an incredibly tight space where you might even be able to get out. It also means that you have a better view of what’s around your car than having to worry about all of your blind spots.
If you’ve ever wanted to drive a luxury car without spending luxury prices, you may want to look into the Genesis G-90. That leaves you with more money to spend on other luxuries you want to add to your life so that you can ride around in style. The Genesis G-90 has a spacious cabin richly lined with material that exudes quality. Many people have complained about the slightly outdated technology when it comes to your entertainment. However, there are definitely other features that make up for it, like its powerful V-6 and V-8 engines.

Other excellent features include a fragrance diffused in the dashboard so that your car always smells fresh and an anti-microbial sanitation system that cleans the air you breathe as well as any items you bring into your car.
The Cadillac CT4 is the smallest sedan that Cadillac has to offer, but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have a lot going for it. It features the Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving tech and safety features that keep it in competition with the big names in the car industry like the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe and the Audi A3. The CT4 has a wireless charging pad for all of your small electronic devices, which is standard. The ride quality is quite solid and even impressive at times when it comes to the body control. It has equal distribution between the front and rear tires, which is quite the opposite of how other front-drive cars feel. There have been complaints about the engine sounding cheap during acceleration, but it’s not a big enough complaint to warrant passing up this car if you’re really interested. On average, it gets between 23 and 34 miles per gallon.
The 2021 Lamborghini Aventador is built with a carbon fiber that makes it streamlined and light on its “feet,” allowing it to feel seamless as it shifts into the higher gears. It has a powerful V12 engine, making it one of the most powerful Lamborghini on the market. Of course, all of that power comes with a higher price tag, but you’re definitely paying for quality. It can be a bit on the wide side if you’re used to cars that you can park easily, but that wide and low stature helps it put all of that horsepower to good use. It has a beautiful four-speaker surround system so that you never miss a note or a beat. The four-wheel steering makes it easy for you to maneuver in any kind of weather, and the heated seats will keep you warm when it’s absolutely frigid outside. LED headlights will provide you with the brightest illumination while you’re driving at night to be ready for just about anything.

This hybrid SUV allows you to charge it or use the gas engine when you’re on a long trip, providing you with the flexibility you need to plan your routes, no matter where you’re going.

In addition, it has plenty of safety features, such as pedestrian detection, steering assist when you’re changing lanes, and blind-spot monitoring, just to name a few.
Ford has been on the leaderboard of putting out trucks that people want to buy. No one would ever consider a truck a luxury item, but the Ford F-150 is proving that idea to be wrong. It has a sleek chassis that seems to exude style but also is tough enough with 430 horsepower to move around just about anything you put your mind to. Equipped with an electric motor and four-wheel drive, there’s nothing this hefty truck can’t take in its day-to-day basis. The F-150 is equipped with a semi-autonomous self-driving system to help you park in a difficult spot, tells you how much weight you have loaded in the bed, and a trailer backup system so you can avoid dinging the car behind you when you’re parallel parking. The five-and-a-half-foot bed provides you with a lot of carrying capacity so that you can haul hundreds of pounds of gear to your heart’s content.

No more struggling with the driver’s seat or changing the rearview mirrors.
Lamborghinis are known to turn everyone’s head, but the 2022 Lamborghini Huracán may just give them whiplash. Its presence alone radiates luxury with such a sleek chassis, large wheels, and a domed roof that tells you that this baby can go fast. The V-10 engine makes this luxury car quite powerful, but the large tires help to make the ride smooth so that you don’t feel like you have to fight to maintain control. It boasts 631 horsepower under the hood, making it one of the more powerful luxury cars out there, and expresses that power when revved up past 8500 RPMs. All of that horsepower results in mileage somewhere between 13 and 18, depending on whether you’re driving through the city or on the highway. And the interior looks just as good as the exterior, with high-quality materials that match the paint job of this luxury car.
Very few people have words to describe how they feel the first time they come across the Porsche 911 GT3. Porsche has upgraded on all of the things that made the original 911 great, making it a better drive that has more grip on the road. The front-end improvements allow for increased aerodynamics for a much smoother ride as well. Equipped with 475 powers, it can go from 0 to 100 kph in just three and a half seconds. Because it’s only a 2-seater, don’t expect to bring a lot of company with you for a night out on the town. The small interior is dressed really well but doesn’t offer a lot of storage space if you bring a lot of things with you. It provides connectivity to all of your electronic devices so that you can listen to your tunes on the go.
The Ferrari 296 GTB is considered a complete successor to the Ferrari Dino 246 GT and has all of the power to back up those claims. It sports a V-6 engine that is quieter than you can ever imagine. Even at 84 miles per hour, you’ll zoom along whisper-quiet on the highway. But the appearance of this beautiful luxury car will do all of the head-turning for you. The Ferrari 296 GTB is a smooth ride on the road that always feels connected, and the steering is super-responsive to whichever direction you need to go.

The biggest complaint that most people have is that the touch screen on the steering wheel is a little unnatural to use, but it’s easy to get used to.
The 2022 Tesla Model Y is a crossover that provides you with all the lightweight of a sedan but all of the space of a larger family vehicle. That means no one getting crushed in the backseat with all of your luggage not being able to fit into the trunk. For a vehicle of this size, it has impressive acceleration that you can feel without it causing too much strain. The electric battery also has an impressive range of almost 320 miles per charge. It is constantly updating its own software on the go, meaning that it all runs in the background so that you don’t have to worry about downtime. One complaint, however, is that it doesn’t have any connectivity to your personal electronic devices, so you might just be stuck with the radio. Another is that there are too many controls on the touchscreen interface, so you can get a bit confused fiddling around with options.
The Ferrari SF90 Stradale is considered the supercar of this year and has made significant improvements in terms of performance. It’s Ferrari’s choice to showcase what their quality is like.

Nevertheless, it may just be one small drop in an empty bucket of disadvantages for the options that it provides.
The Ford Mustang started as a muscle car and eventually grew into a state of luxury that has drawn many decisive ideas towards it. It has a sleek body that exudes the rich and powerful engine that lives under the hood. After all, it’s not named “Mustang” for no reason.

Touchscreen panels in the middle console help you control just about everything inside and outside the vehicle. For a little extra fun, you can even control the color of the lights underneath the dashboard so that you can take your weekend parties on the go before and after your destinations.
The 2020 Porsche Taycan is a luxury car that is also electric, which is a slowly-growing aspect of the vehicle market. However, despite the electric engine, it definitely provides a lot of power. It still provides a comfortable ride, though the interior is a bit small. Nevertheless, the materials used on the inside are high-quality, so you’ll still feel like you’re driving a quality vehicle that will make heads turn. The one downside is that the range of the electric engine is only 200 miles, which is a bit less than a few other electric cars that are out there. That means that you have to plan your trips more often, especially if you travel long distances on a regular basis, but this is a feature that will likely improve with time as Porsche works on future models.
