For a priest who has to drive around a lot - a big parish, or several parishes - a good quality, reliable car makes sense.
I can see that the optics of a high-end luxury sedan or sports car are bad, and it also is not as useful for hauling a bunch of parishioners or sisters about, not to mention the new washing machine for the rectory . . .
But I can see a high-end SUV or crossover because of the versatility, reliability, safety, and comfort. You don't want to be in a bouncing tin can if you're on the road for a good part of the day.
