Family values have accelerated, or escalated to a new plateau, as vehicles viewed as safe or practical, are now toss-in features. These are high-performance cars across the board. BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Cadillac, Jaguar, and the rest of the luxury auto market. This report stemmed from an original report by and then posted by the  Chicago Tribune
