Last week I was invited to test drive a new luxury SUV aimed at "older millennials". I'm not a car writer but I do like luxury (I mean who doesn't?!), and I was intrigued to find out what millennial luxury actually looks like.
Here's what I found:
A sensor under the car so you can open the trunk sans-hands.
A wireless charging pad for you phone, because who has the time?
A 4GB Wi-Fi hotspot so you can always stay ~connected~.
The ability to sync up your smart watch, Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa device, if you have them.
Apple CarPlay, and a decent-sized screen on the dash.
There's also a sunroof. Because of course there is.
And finally: heated seats, which will ruin you for other seats.
So, there you have it. I was expecting an avocado toast holder or maybe a millennial pink-leather interior – but it was nice and luxe nonetheless!
