Unlike shopping for luxury cars or sports cars, when the sticker price is a measure of prestige, it’s unlikely that anyone ever sets out with the intention of buying the most expensive sedan on the market. Perhaps it’s happened a time or two. And similarly, auto manufacturers probably don’t get much mileage out of advertising their sedans as the highest priced passenger cars available… that is, unless that particular model also happens to be the nicest sedan available. Regardless, there has to be a “most expensive” as well as all those that rank closely behind. The list of the top 10 most expensive passenger cars might provide some insight into how the most expensive sedans achieved such a status.  

The most expensive 4 door cars first have to provide all the basic sedan characteristics: an engine capable of moving along a medium sized car at street and highway speeds, a comfortable though modest interior that can seat at least three adults, and a design that’s consistent with the brand’s styling, even though it will almost certainly lack the more expensive finishing touches of the manufacturer’s higher priced vehicles. Of course, the more money a potential customer has to spend, the more amenities are available. That’s why some auto manufacturers have decided it’s worth it to have high priced sedans in the lineup. Some buyers really just want the basics, but are willing to spend the money to make those basics a little bit nicer. After all, sedans tend to be the favorites of businesspeople and modest families, and those two demographics are known to spend a lot of time in their cars. Spending a little extra for a high priced sedan will get a more powerful engine, a nicer, more technologically advanced cabin, and likely a little more style. Sedans don’t have to be dull.
