Luxury cars are known for being elegant, having a ton of features, and for being a status symbol in their own right. Unfortunately, one thing that luxury cars aren't known for is reliability. After all, part of the luxury car package is being able to claim you can maintain it and keep driving it.
If you don't want to sacrifice reliability but still want to keep luxury, you need to buy one of these cars. According to mechanics and car experts, these are the most reliable luxury cars to buy in 2017.
2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class
We can't really help but fall in love with a nice luxury Mercedes-Benz car. The E-Class line has long been known as a "hit or miss" group, primarily because of the fact that amenities aren't always what the luxury market wants.
However, this new E-Class model definitely scores on the "hit" side of things. High levels of comfort, great seats, a loud speaker, and a 241-horsepower engine make this a very reliable sedan that feels like a sports car.
It also has been given the best fuel economy rating among non-hybrid sedans. At $52,000, this is really is one of the more reliable luxury cars to buy at that price range.
2017 Audi A7
Fans of larger cars already know that Audi's line of luxury cars definitely give them enough room to breathe. The 2017 Audi A7 recently won a slew of award for being one of the best large cars in the luxury market.
A supercharged V6 engine that generates 330 horsepower makes for a car that feels luxurious, drives like a muscle car, and also has the awesome ability to stay as reliable as possible.
That's why it's one of the best reliable luxury cars to buy right now, and why it's worth its $68,000 price tag.
2017 Lexus CT Hybrid
In many ways, the 2017 Lexus CT Hybrid is a perfect mesh of a number of different car categories. While it is a luxury car, it also happens to be built to be a perfect commuter car. Its hybrid-level gas mileage also means that longer commutes won't equate pain at the pump.
The Lexus CT offers a very respectable 143 horsepower, and also has one of the most affordable price tags in the luxury sector. At around $31,000 brand new, this is one of the most reliable luxury cars to buy — and one of the cheapest.
2017 Porsche Panamera
Porsche is, and always will be, one of the most well-liked luxury car brands in the world. Part of the reason why people love to drive Porsches is because of their powerful engines and great handling.
However, there's also something to be said about their appearance, their luxury, and their overall golden status as quality cars. That high quality is what makes the 2017 one of the most reliable luxury cars to buy this year.
Starting at around $85,000, driving a Panamera is an expensive moment that few can afford to enjoy on a regular basis — but everyone would want to experience at least once.
2017 Lexus RC
Lexus is back again, with one more affordable luxury car to add to the list. This time, it's the petite-but-comfortable Lexus RC. This car is known for sumptuous seats, a zippy 241-horsepower turbocharged engine, and plenty of subtle luxury amenities that make it an incredibly fun drive.
It's small size makes it relatively fuel efficient, and its sturdy build makes it one of the most reliable luxury cars to buy this year. We're in love with this car. At around $40,000, this car will set you back a bit in cash, but definitely will make itself worth it.
2017 Lexus ES
Yes, it seems like there is a clear winner when it comes to luxury car manufacturers known for reliability — and yes, it's Lexus. The ES model recently got awarded "Best Midsize Luxury Car for the Money" by US News, and frankly, it deserves it.
Better still, this reliable midsize car also comes with advanced safety features and a decent V6 engine. Whoever said commuting can't be fun hasn't been in one of these before.
Priced at $38,000, the Lexus ES is one of those well-equipped sedans that is designed to be the perfect commuter car. If you love riding in style when you're on your way to work, the the ES is definitely good to go.
2017 Porsche 911
Every single car fan knows the Porsche 911. This is a car that walks a fine line between a sports car and a muscle car thanks to its slick build and exceptionally powerful engine. It's a car that's a status symbol thanks to its incredibly beautiful exterior and known for its super luxurious interior.
Oh, yes, it is a luxury car. But, it's not just a luxury car. It's an iconic car that shows the true power of being able to afford a serious car. Your car is a statement if you drive one of these. Believe it or not, the Porsche 911 has one of the highest reliability ratings of all cars in its class.
So, while it may be worth $89,000, it's safe to say it'll be worth every penny.
