It’s common to think that the world’s super rich, the who is who of the corporate world, politics, tech, sports, and so on, indulge in the finer things in life – and they most certainly do. But when it comes to cars, some Uber rich folks do modest.
Well, don’t take our word for it. A comprehensive research conducted by the car review site Edmunds discovered that America’s wealthy went for the following ten car models in 2017.
Spoiler alert: you’ll not find the latest Lamborghini, Maserati, Rolls Royce, Bentley or Ferrari on this list.
Jeep Grand Cherokee
The world’s affluent have an insatiable taste for adventures down the unbeaten path. Some even spend oodles of cash to catch a glimpse of the sunset from the most remote parts of the country and beyond. And, why not – they got the moolah!
Jeep Grand Cherokee packs enough punch to take on off-road adventures. It boasts gorgeous interior and an extensive list of robust features.
BMW X7 isn’t modest per se, but it has become a darling for the super-rich – and for a good reason. Going up against Mercedes GLS, BMW X7 is a mammoth of an SUV, with lots of space for entourage, plenty of suitcases, sporting gadgets, and whatnot.
The wealthy have a thing for steep fire roads and taking on rocky trails. The rugged Jeep Wrangler has no equal when it comes to off-roading.
Ford Explorer is a household model when it comes to SUVs. The segment leader also provides plenty of horsepowers, cargo space, and lots of nifty amenities that appeal to the Uber Wealthy.
The Pilot doesn’t disappoint with an all-wheel drive that provides remarkable grip in snow or rain. It also features an incredibly versatile cabin.
The rich expect a high level of competence from a Honda-branded vehicle, and The Accord is top-notch – with exceptional driving dynamics, roomy interior, and an impressive assortment of top-rated features.
Lexus knows its way around the interiors. Although it doesn’t offer off-road-worthy features, Lexus RX does a bang-up job when it comes to style and luxury. It’s ideal for a school run.
Highlander is among a few crossovers that have caught the attention of the rich. With 3-row seating, tons of space and the latest in amenities, Toyota Highlander is no shabby.
As a leader of the pack, it’s not hard to see why Honda CR-V cut this list.
Jaguar XFR is elegant, sophisticated, and sporty with a deluxe cabin that’s not only ritzy but also a welcoming haven. The rich enjoy the charming, distinct disposition of XFR.
