11 Luxury Car Brands and Parent Companies

To help those who are planning to purchase a luxury car make an informed decision, we came up with a list of 11 luxury car brands and parent companies.

Sales of luxury cars have declined in 2017 through the end of April, with mid-size luxury vehicle sales falling by 4.6% year-over-year and small/entry luxury car sales sliding by 3.6%. Among the vehicles taking the biggest individual hits are the BMW 5-Series (sales down 31.1% YTD through April), the Jaguar XF (-48.7%), the Lexus ES (-26.1%), the Lexus IS (-31.5%), and the Mercedes Benz C-Class (-43.6%). There have been a few standout performers however, including the Mercedes Benz C-Class (+21.1%), the Mercedes Benz E-Class (+21%), and the Audi A4 (+21%).

While mid-range luxury vehicle sales have been slipping this year, sales of super luxury vehicles are booming, experiencing double-digit growth from 2015 through early-2017. That’s not entirely surprising given the market conditions, as more people rise to immense wealth, while the middle class is saddled with stagnating wages and large amounts of debt.

To compile our list we looked to the Best Luxury Midsize Cars list published by U.S. News. The online news portal bases its ranking on numerous objective and subjective factors including data on safety and reliability and critic’s reviews. We based our listing primarily on the car’s price, intentionally skipping some models so we cover only the best luxury cars from different brands and parent companies.



Based on price range, the best 11 luxury car brands and their flagship companies for 2017 are the Lincoln MKZ by Ford Motor Co. (NYSE:F), the 2017 Infiniti Q70 from Nissan Motor Company Ltd. (OTCMKTS:NSANY), the 2018 Acura TLX from Honda Motor Co. Ltd. (NYSE:HMC), the 2017 Jaguar XF owned by Tata Motors Ltd. (NYSE:TTM), the 2017 Cadillac CTS from General Motors Co. (NYSE:GM), the 2017 Volvo S90 from The Volvo Group, the 2017 Genesis G80 from Hyundai Motor Co., the 2017 Lexus GS Hybrid from Toyota Motor Corp. (NYSE:TM), the 2017 BMW 5-Series from Bayerische Motoren Werke AG, the 2017 Audi A6 by Volkswagen Group, and the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class from Daimler AG.

The list is focused on mid-sized luxury cars only. Check it out beginning on the next page. For further reading, you might want to check out our list of 10 luxury car brands in the world.
