Who drives more luxury cars than anyone? Your first guess might be a duke or a CEO or a hip-hop mogul. Actually, it’s the guy who parks their cars. See how we tested high-end valets on their luxury expertise, and how the 2017 Kia Cadenza stacks up.

I liked it, but not that special.

So, this is a well shot version of the world's oldest "budget car goes luxury" strategy

And like every version of this it entirely misses the point.

If your luxury car needs justification, if you literally have to blindfold people to get past badge prejudice then you don't have a luxury car - you have a well appointed one.

Being a poor man's BMW or Benz still leaves you a poor man.

Alas this is too rational - and luxury isn't a rational category.
