No matter what make, model, or year, every car has the potential to look and feel like a more luxurious ride than it once started as, especially with the help of a few additional upgrades. 

Amid our busy lives, we spend plenty of time commuting from place to place—meaning we spent ample time in our cars. High-tech amenities and a fancy car are key to enjoying the ride. Consider these additional features or upgrades that will make your car more luxurious. 


Autos, Yachts, Jets: Tips for Beginning a Classic Car Collection

New Seats  

From modern tan leather to sleek black fabric, seats can quickly become worn down, making a vehicle look old and feel uncomfortable. Reupholstering car seats after a few years of wear and tear is the best way to bring life, luxury, and comfort back into any car.  

Changing Up the Paint 

Often, the way a car looks on the exterior is a preview of what's on the inside. Paint scratches and scuffs are signs of a worn-out vehicle. Luckily, there are plenty of options for improving a car's exterior. Applying paint to small scratches can make a car look as good as new. Consider a vinyl wrap or a new paint job. Don't forget to add a layer of wax for extra shine and protection.

Add Chrome Details 

Chrome accents on a car are instant signs of luxury. Replace dull aluminum or steel wheels with sleek and modern chrome wheels. Among the added benefits of chrome wheels is that they're also easier to clean, meaning the car will always look shiny and new.

Add a Collison Avoidance System 

Modern vehicle technology is constantly changing to make navigation and safety better while also simplifying driving. Among the most recent advancements to hit the market are collision avoidance systems.

These systems use sensors and automatic breaking to negate the risk of an accident. Many high-end luxury vehicles now come with collision avoidance systems, but it may not include this amenity if the car is a few years old. 

Replacing Shocks and Struts 

No matter how fancy a car looks, it won't be very luxurious unless the ride is comfortable. Invest in a good set of shocks and replace them after every 50,000 miles. With higher quality shocks comes a smoother ride.
