Luxury Automobile

An automobile with extra features for comfort and/or status of the driver. Luxury automobiles are more expensive than comparable automobiles. Because they tend to attract buyers who have money regardless of economic circumstances, the luxury automobile industry tends to hold up well during recessions. Two notable exceptions, however, have been the Great Depression and the late 2000s recession.
