8 Luxury Cars to Look Forward to in 2021

Written by Arpan Ghosh

It was a relatively muted year for the automotive industry in 2020, with very few big launches and slowdowns in production. Many of the bigger car brands want to make up for lost time by releasing their newest models this year. Here are the best luxury cars that we can expect to see on the roads in 2021.

There is a lot to recommend about the Z06, from its 600 horsepower V8 engine and finely tuned suspension to a more powerful and aerodynamic design. One can expect a smooth, adrenaline-pumping performance on the road, though perhaps the biggest draw is the price - thd Z06 will most likely be under $90,000 making it a bargain as far as supercars are concerned.

Genesis is still relatively new in the luxury car market and has yet to make a true name for itself, but its new line of SUVs - the G80 and the smaller G70 - might just change that. The cars are sleek and beautiful to look at, with a design that results in optimal performance. However, the biggest draw is just how quiet they are - the noise dampening systems that you find in most luxury cars are given an extra tweak so they don’t just cancel engine noise, but also tire noise on different driving surfaces.

The 4th entry in Audi’s electric vehicle lineup, the Q4 E-Tron will put parent company Volkswagen’s new MEB system to the test, which features a sophisticated array of technology for smoother handling on the road, along with a well-designed infotainment system and plenty of driver-assist functions. It won’t just be the best Audi out there, but one of the best options you could possible find for a luxury electric car.

Tesla Roadster

The very first hypercar by Tesla has been keenly anticipated by gearheads since it was first announced in 2017, in no small part because of its supposed ability to go from 0 to 60 mph in an eye-watering 1.9 seconds. Sadly, the Roadster was put on hold as Tesla chose to focus its marketing efforts on the quizzically designed Cybertruck instead. But it is only a matter of time before the Roadster makes its way to the road.

Comfort is at the forefront of the Maybach’s design, which couples its plush interior stylings with an adjustable suspension, so you can get in and out of the car with ease. The seats are ventilated and have a massage component, there is complete noise insulation and you also get electronically controlled blinds to keep out the sun. Intriguingly, the car will have its own signature scent - osmanthus blossom - as well as an assortment of technological functions for a smoother driving experience.
