Best Luxury Tech Cars of 2014

Updated

Beyond using fine cabin materials and featuring sublime styling, luxury cars ease the lives of their owners by taking care of the small details. A luxury car should turn on its own headlights when it's dark, unlock its doors when its owner approaches, and remember the preferred seating position for its owner. These cars feature excellent navigation systems and stereos that produce heavenly sounds. With voice command systems, most of these cars listen when you speak to them.
