Prestige vehicles offer the best in comfort and class. If you want to indulge yourself, why not pick a high-end SUV, or perhaps a flashy mid-size sedan? Otherwise, if you just need something to zip around town in as efficiently as possible, maybe go for an economy compact vehicle (or something else that won’t burn a hole in your wallet).
