Luxury car service available in Laurel

Story by Katie Bertolino

For the Outlook


Looking to cruise in style down Main Street? Or, maybe, you need to impress the future in-laws or boss? A combination of elegance, convenience and safety can be found at Suave Sedan. New to Laurel, the beginnings of this luxurious car service stem back to Santa Rosa, Calif. and the year 1981. Owner-operator Ilan Kaufmann has been serving people since then when he began the first limousine service in Santa Rosa. A Vietnam Veteran and chaplain for the Laurel VFW, he is excited to bring over 20 years of chauffeur experience to the Laurel area. 

His background, which includes chauffeur training from the Bondurant School of High Performance Driving, defensive driving, and the Montana Highway Patrol Winter Driving courses, has allowed for Suave Sedans to pave its way in Laurel. After a yearlong process, he obtained his permit from the Public Service Commission. This is the first new permit for chauffeur-like services in 30 years to be issued, allowing for Suave Sedans to transport people in Carbon, Stillwater and Yellowstone counties. 

An avid motorcyclist, Kaufmann says that he has, “Combined his passion for driving and motors with his love for people in the perfect job.” With his 2015 all-wheel drive Cadillac that features heated rear seats, WIFI, and easy access for elderly and people with disabilities, Kaufmann is bringing class to Laurel. From his work with Rimrock Cadillac as a concierge specialist, Kaufmann has learned the geography of Billings and its surrounding areas. 

Available 24 hours, seven days a week, Kaufmann hopes that Suave Sedans is the name that comes to mind when ordering a ride. The business can be reached at (406) 669-8787, online at, via e-mail at, or on Facebook at
