Luxury Features That Made Their Way Into Affordable Cars

Luxury cars serve a dual role for an automaker. Their extra prestige commands higher prices and, often, higher profit margins. They also show the pinnacle of an automaker’s engineering prowess and the latest technologies the automaker is developing.

Examples that show this trend include airbags, heated seats, and automatic climate control. But the past ten years has seen an acceleration of features moving from luxury models to some of the most affordable vehicles on sale. We’ll be taking a look at some of the luxury features you can now get in a mainstream vehicle.
