Jaguar I-Pace Jaguar’s I-Pace all-electric concept blends art and technology in its interior. Rotary dials have the precision of a Patek Phillipe watch. Plus, the driver barely needs to lift a finger. For example, to open the glove box there’s no need to push a button - a simple hand gesture will do the trick. Swipe your hand across the glove box and voila, it opens and a tray table slides out for extra convenience.

Mercedes-Benz G550 Even this bad-boy of off-roading, the Mercedes-Benz’ G550 4x4 SUV – the most capable G-Class ever, gets a lift in luxury in the cabin. And it’s all about the details – even the door panel is exquisitely handcrafted, quilted and lined with alcantera suede. It’s a work of art, but really too beautiful and delicate to risk getting dirty off the beaten track.

Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster You’ll need to wear shades behind the wheel of this all-new Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster.

Lincoln Navigator Here’s a brilliant idea to get into the cabin of this monster Lincoln Navigator – sure its a concept, but the three-tiered power steps hideaway when closed. When you need an added boost into the cabin, the steps deploy from the sides of the vehicle to make it a cinch to enter and exit.
