3. Kia K900
The 2016 Kia K900 is one of the more practical considerations in this Autobytel roundup of 10 best luxury cars for women. Somehow, though, the K900 luxury sedan is often overlooked as a legitimate upscale option. The Korean budget brand competes in this class by providing a lot of amenities—similar to those found on class-leading vehicles—for a very low price. On top of that, Kia also backs its flagship luxury sedan with an excellent warranty. The 2016 Kia K900 may not be especially sporty, but this large sedan does provide good overall handling composure and a smooth ride. That’s a trait liked by both women and men.
4. Cadillac XT5
Though the 2017 Cadillac XT5 is brand new and hasn’t yet had a chance to prove itself, it belongs on our list of the 10 best luxury cars for women. Why? Well, Cadillac’s heritage as a domestic luxury brand certainly plays a role, but these all-American cars have never really been what one might call feminine. The XT5, a midsize crossover that’s slated as a replacement for the dated SRX, has the potential to change that perception. More nimble than its predecessor and with a more modern interior, the XT5 signals a change in direction for the brand. Women in the market for an upscale SUV should consider—perhaps for the first time—claiming a Caddy as their own.
5. Audi A5 Cabriolet
No list of the best luxury cars for women would be complete without an upscale convertible in the mix. The 2016 Audi A5 Cabriolet is a drop-top version of the German brand’s popular compact coupe, which offers good reliability, excellent fuel economy, and a great driving experience. Women who prefer a manual transmission will need to get the regular A5 coupe because the A5 Cabriolet comes only with an automatic. The 2016 Audi A5 also has a sumptuous interior with plenty of standard equipment, as well as standard quattro all-wheel drive.
