Advice about small luxury cars

Luxury small cars FAQs

Luxury in cars used to predominantly refer to ride comfort and plush cabin materials. In more recent times, the latest in infotainment and driver aid tech has become just as important. A small luxury car needs to tick all these boxes to qualify. 

Unlike larger luxury cars which usually come well equipped as standard, you may need to delve into the trims and options lists to turn your small car into a luxury one.

It might not have a prestige badge, but it’s hard to look past the Peugeot e-208. In range-topping GT spec it packs a lot of luxury kit in a small package. You get the cool-looking i-Cockpit digital display, along with 3D sat nav and aluminium pedals and front sills. Climate control, 16-inch alloys, and a colour reversing camera are also standard. It’s not expensive for an electric car with such a high specification.
