fancytastic

adjective; blending and clipping
Elegance and classiness emphasized.
 
According to the advertisement fancytastic is defined as "Class and elegance without snobbery...A word spoken, as you leave ordinary behind." The combination of the two words could have been chosen to convey a feeling of emphasis without excess. The car is being portrayed as extremely elegant by the word "fancy," but still appropriate for everyday use by the word tastic, another common word for great.
Etymology : It was formed by clipping the word fantastic to -tastic and blending it with fancy.
