Luxury Vehicles at Bargain Prices

The luxury car market is booming, as evidenced by a recent report from consulting firm Bain & Company, which indicated that sales in the luxury car market are expected to grow by 8 percent this year. That means high net worth individuals are busy snapping up some of the hottest cars available. It should also be noted that even wealthy car buyers enjoy getting a good deal. After all, most wealthy people achieved their status, at least in part, because they are careful with their assets. So, for those looking for luxury vehicles at an affordable price, here are the top 10 luxury cars in 2016, according to Kelly Blue Book.

1. Lexus NX–$32,269

Topping the list is the Lexus NX, a smaller SUV, with lots of interior space and bold styling. This SUV is powerful and graceful at the same time and is everything you would expect from a Lexus.

2. 2016 Audi A3–$27,913

This compact luxury sport sedan offers more interior room than others in its class and comes with the lowest starting price of any other vehicle on the list. Featuring ample power, beautiful design and all the usual Audi amenities, this vehicle offers great bang for your buck.

3. 2016 Cadillac ATS–$30,730

Our first and only homegrown entry to make the list comes courtesy of Cadillac. This luxury sport sedan compares nicely to the BMW 3 series. It is fun to drive, offers excellent power and is different from anything else the company has ever rolled off the assembly line.

4. 2016 Mercedes Benz GLA–$30,249

A close relative of the aforementioned CLA, this sporty SUV offering from Mercedes was built on the same platform and sports similar power and sophistication as the CLA.

5. 2016 Acura RDX–$33,321

Another Acura comes in at number 5. This time it’s an SUV, the RDX. The carmaker updated the RDX with an improved interior, more power, upgraded technology and even more fuel efficiency.

6. 2016 Acura TLX–$28,369

The first Japanese car on the list comes from Acura. The redesigned TLX is one of the roomiest cars in its class and the company spared no details with a great mixture of comfort, design and drivability.

7. 2016 Mercedes Benz CLA–$29,552

Mercedes makes its first appearance on the list with the CLA, which offers a sporty design and an even sportier drive, with its front-wheel-drive and turbocharged engine.

8. 2016 BMW X1–$32,065

Another small SUV comes in at number eight. The BMW X1 is the smallest SUV in the company’s lineup, but it offers a roomy interior, better fuel efficiency and all-wheel drive, all standard.

9. 2016 Audi Q3–$31,363

This compact SUV is one of the carmakers most affordable vehicles in its lineup, but don’t let the price fool you. It grabs your attention on the road and offers excellent refinement and other amenities common to Audi.

10. 2016 BMW 2 Series–$37,597

Coming at number 10 is the 2016 BMW 2 Series, which might not be the most practical vehicle available in this price range, but it sure is a lot of fun to drive. With 240 horsepower, a compact design and rear-wheel drive owners love the sporty look and feel.
