“Many people aspire to drive a luxury car one day – that is, if you’re not already lucky enough to be driving one!” Said Confused.com insurance expert, Alex Kindred.
“Often kitted out with top of the range technology and ultra-comfortable interiors, these luxury vehicles can be very expensive to buy. As our research shows, the cost of a luxury car can also vary in affordability depending on where you live in the world.
“As well as being expensive to buy, these vehicles are also often costly to run, with the cost of maintaining such cars also being higher than your average vehicle.
“It’s important to keep this in mind when considering buying a luxury vehicle and remember to compare car insurance quotes, and other maintenance costs to ensure you’re getting the best deal possible.”
