I'm a little confused as to whether there's any difference between Oberklasse and Premiumklasse for cars; Mittelklass I assume is mid-class.
Is Premiumklasse 'luxury class'?

There are of course automobiles in much more expensive classes (e.g., Mercedes-Benz Maybach) which are sometimes referred to as _royal class _

Thanks! I'm still a little confused as to whether there's a difference between 'range' and 'class' though - wouldn't mid-range be the middle of the range of a particular series of cars?
