According to the Department of Transportation's Federal Highway Administration, wet roads cause roughly 1.13 million crashes each year. They're responsible for 75% of all weather-related crashes and 18% of vehicle crashes overall. Rain alone is responsible for 707,000 crashes, 47% of weather-related crashes and 11% of all crashes.

Those rainy crashes injure more than 330,000 people each year and kill 3,300. That adds up to more than 50% of all weather-related injuries and deaths. That makes rain more dangerous to U.S. drivers than snow, ice and fog combined.

Luxury automakers have caught on to drivers' concerns and have made a sizable dent in the all-weather vehicle market. The following ten vehicles show both how much of a luxury weather-specific safety features have become, but also the premium that drivers place on them.
