Luxury Cars That Put Wellness First

Passengers' wellbeing has been taken into consideration when designing these vehicles.

In the auto industry, wellness has finally caught up with it. In addition to adrenaline-inducing performance and horsepower, the focus is on the notion that these three vehicles, whether driven or ridden, can improve your health.

Bentley Bentayga Extended Wheelbase (EWB) Azure

With the Bentayga EWB, the automaker says, "luxury SUVs will rise and luxury sedans will fall." In other words, goodbye to the longstanding flagship Mulsanne and hello to a new investment of $100 million or more.

There is no denying the awe of the Sea to Sky Highway, which begins in downtown Vancouver and weaves through Squamish, Mt. Garibaldi, Whistler, and Lillooet Lake. Greenpeace was founded there in part because of its verdant forests and towering mountains, complete with bursts of sunlight (likely one of the reasons it is so beautiful). An intentionally positioned sunroof above the second row of seats and the 22-way adjustment 'airline seat' allow uninterrupted daydreams in the rear seat of the Bentayga EWB Azure model.

It was necessary to extend the wheelbase by 7.1 inches behind the driver by extending the space between the axles. When spotted, the Bentayga EWB's rear doors are easy to identify; they have been redesigned to optimize secondary ride comfort, as well as the generous windows that come with automatic power-close.

In addition to positional adjustment, posture-correction using lumbar and thigh bladders, motorized footrests, massage options, humidity monitoring, body temperature monitoring, thermal response (through heating and ventilation), and climatic adaptability, airline seats (such as Praetor 500) are available.

A hybrid version of the standard Bentayga is available, but the new EWB uses the same 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8. Despite the softer exhaust note, the engine still produces 542 horsepower. The smoother the ride, the more relaxing the journey is, according to Bentley.

Mercedes-Benz EQS 580 4MATIC SUV

Through sound, temperature, and scent, Mercedes-Benz's Energizing Comfort system was designed to boost driver attention, reduce fatigue, and combat stress since September 2017. In conjunction with the launch of Mercedes-EQ's first SUV, the EQS SUV, the health and wellness program celebrated its fifth anniversary.

Mercedes-Benz's newly launched Energizing Nature program expanded and evolved its well-being offerings with Denver as a backdrop. Two new standard soundscapes, Silver Waves and Vivid Flux, tap the Burmester surround sound system, along with three new settings - Forest Glade, Sounds of the Sea and Summer Rain. Using biometric authentication in conjunction with driver profiles, Mercedes-Benz aims to streamline data and address common driver issues in real time.

The venture offers more than exterior sensors and likely soon-to-be standard rear-axle steering. With a range of 285 miles and dual motors with 400 kW total output, the EQS SUV has a 400 kW total output and a cabin inside and outside. EQS Sedan and EQS SUV are both capable of quick charging at a maximum rate of 200 kW.

If the SUV is charged correctly, it can add 155 miles of range in 15 minutes. A partnership between Mercedes-Benz and Electrify America aims to build 1,800 charging stations in the United States and Canada by 2026. With Electrify America's network, the first two years of charging are complimentary.

There are a lot of selections in the new Range Rover Sport P440e Autobiography. With a 3.0-liter turbo-inline-six engine mated to a 31.8-kWh lithium-ion battery, the Sport produces 434 horsepower and has a 48-mile electric range.

The pure EV mode proved to be superior on the single-lane streets of Madrid's center. It wasn't difficult to override default hybrid mode, but manual input was required. In an autumn day without clouds, country dirt roads quickly replaced the motorway. The electric motor is disabled only by the Rock Crawl setting when shuffled through terrain response options. A seamless and impressive selection is made by the algorithm based on surface conditions and topography.

The lower roofline, sleek tail lights, retractable door handles, and playfully delicate wraparound horizontal bands of LED headlights give the car a sense of aerodynamic prowess, but the wind noise is surprising. Would you like to breathe in the sweet, citrus-scented air? Not for highway speeds, but highly recommended.

Land Rover promises its next-generation cabin air purification pro system reduces odors, bacteria, and allergens (including SARS-CoV-2 virus) with PM2.5 filtration and nanoe TMX technology. A company spokesperson said the device enhances the well-being of passengers by purifying the cabin before and during a journey.

Multi-occupant winged headrests and the infotainment system respond in real time to a variety of situations. Are you on the phone with a passenger? It will be exclusively the driver's headrest speaker that receives navigation commands. In addition, a dedicated button in the door reactivates the massage function perpetually, which makes for a relaxing but engaging experience.
