Sure you can. The 3 was never that luxurious to begin with. This one is the most luxurious ever. The price tag isn't that high when adjusted to inflation, as has been discussed many times. And while the level of luxury has gone up, so has the level of luxury in higher end models.

It comes standard with plastic seats. You can upgrade to ... "Dakota leather." That is the least luxurious leather you can find in a car. To see higher luxury, go sit in say an Audi A8 or an S class (I am sure the 7 is similar) .
