Luxury Cars to Lease
Initially debuting in 2015, the A3 series provides drivers with an enhanced luxury experience. Finally, they have introduced a beautiful convertible to rival BMW. While a genuinely stunning vehicle with aesthetics, the interior offers an array of advanced tools now standard. You’ll enjoy the addition of two built-in USB ports and heated seats with the optional blind spot-monitoring in the plus model. Many previous tech features for Audi have returned with much-needed improvements.
Assuredly the most impressive technology feature for A3 revolves around the complete “Audi Virtual Cockpit” 12.3-inch interface with driver assist programs. The clear graphics with vibrant colors can depict Google Map navigation, weather information, and more. Audi, as opposed to competitors, includes their “MMI Touch” screen that allows you the option to write information with your finger, instead of spending time typing tediously. The ability to recognize handwriting is a fresh change to luxury vehicle technology.
The Audi Connect (part of the Technology Package upgrade) allows for full integration with your smartphone technology, including a Wifi hotspot with 4G LTE connectivity. Audi offers a 6-month complimentary trial of their connect services.
Included also in the A3’s Technology Package, the 13-speaker Bang & Olufsen Sound System will ensure you the best all-around sound capability.
For safety technology, the A3 comes standard with their state-of-the-art Pre Sense programs that give audible warnings before collisions. They also prepare the vehicle and protect you by rapidly closing windows, the sunroof, and tightening seat belts.
This convertible model includes basic rollover bars that automatically deploy before a collision.
Finally, the Premium Plus and Prestige model give you traffic assist warnings in alerting you to vehicles in your blind spot when changing lanes. And, a basic rearview camera display helps when backing out of a parking spot.
You’ll find the 2018 7 Series is decked out with technology this holiday season! The 740 models specifically have Active Driving Assistant as a standalone option. Most other fancy tech options, unfortunately, come as upgrades with BMW’s Driving Assistance Plus package.
These Active Driving Assistant programs include lane departure warning, a forward collision warning system, and their Pedestrian Protection tools. Essentially, each of these act by automatically applying emergency brakes and signaling off sounds and LED lights to alert the driver to danger. They operate using the latest in camera, radar, and thermal sensing technology to provide best in class safety.
The more advanced Active Driving Assistance Plus trim will include more advanced collision warnings, active cruise control, city collision mitigation, Traffic Jam Assist, and their version of Pedestrian Protection. Basically, the warning systems will activate when you drive at lower speeds when compared to the other package.
As the flagship luxury series of BMW, all 7 Series models include standard many otherwise premium comfort and entertainment features. These include 14-way power seating, a 16-speaker Harman Kardon surround system, and adaptive headlamps. You can then choose to add The Luxury Rear Seating package for dual 7-inch rear entertainment screens. Then you can choose to upgrade to the Executive Package and receive 20-way power seating with heating and ventilation.
You might also want to explore the standalone options, as opposed to sets of technology, such as night vision displays, Apple Carplay integration, and remote control parking.
The standard 10.2-inch infotainment system comes with the iDrive 6.0 programming with 3D navigation display and specific BMW app controls. It’s controlled by a touchpad Gesture Controller (a bit less intuitive than a simple touch screen and requires a learning curve).
Additionally, Bluetooth and Wifi hotspot connections come standard with a wireless charge port station compatible with all the newest devices.
The 740i is a fantastic vehicle if you’re looking for a lease with luxury features you won’t find standard anywhere else. Get yours for a zero down from Oz today.
2018 Lexus GS Hybrid
Lexus’ GS series includes a powerful hybrid model to give you a generous selection of innovative technology options. It’s both economical and environmentally friendly as well as an obvious choice for luxury fans. The GS Hybrid models come in 8 engine models with both rear and all-wheel drive availability.
Lexus has outfitted their newest hybrid with a sizeable 12.3-inch infotainment screen with exceptional 3D navigation display. It also includes smartphone integration with a built-in app suite with preinstalled programs like Pandora, iHeartRadio, and Yelp. You’re also treated with a DVD player and advanced voice controls.
However, you have to deal a small adjustable knob to navigate the screen. Most reviews cite it buggy and awkward.
Arguably the best perk of the GS Hybrid is the roomy interior. While the battery pack takes up a large chunk of the rear cargo, the cabin has 10-way adjustable seating (which you can upgrade to 14-way) with heating and ventilation. They also include tether straps for child seat installments.
Regarding safety, all GS models come with forward collision warning systems to alert you when you approach vehicles or pedestrians too fast.
It also includes a standard adaptive sunroof, dual climate control system, and rearview camera display.
You can choose to upgrade the standard 12-speaker system to an impressive 17-speaker Mark Levinson HD surround sound system.

This car undoubtedly provides the most in standard tech features.
The MB-Tex faux leather seats allow for 14-way power adjustment with memory settings. However, you might have to opt for Mercedes’ Premium Package that allows for heated front seats, satellite radio, and hands-free voice controls.
For your convenience, the CLA 250 includes an 8-inch infotainment screen with the COMAND navigation system, rearview mirror, complete Bluetooth connectivity, and HD radio. You have several options to upgrade the COMAND programming to allow more app integration and traffic data.
The Driver’s Assist package includes everything to keep you safe on the road, including adaptive cruise control and lane keep assist programs. You can even pay to include automated parking.
