We all want luxury and style, but we are also aware of the fact that money doesn’t grow on trees. Therefore, we’ve done the heavy lifting for you and found out what the most cost-efficient luxury car brands are. These vehicles will keep your wallet and your sense of style looking and feeling good.

BMW- German Luxury Automobile

BMW is known the world around for providing drivers with a luxury experience they can’t get anywhere else. This brand has two signature cars that will extend your dollar a little further. The BMW 2 Series coupe brings you the feeling of driving a sports car while touting great fuel economy. You will really enjoy the backup camera for added safety, and also the 201-horsepower engine that features 180 lb. of torque.

The base models are standard equipped with LED headlamps, a keyless entry system and ignition, and dual-zone climate control. You will also like how easy it is to connect your Bluetooth devices as well-that’s standard, too. Additional features to add to your fun include a sunroof, forward collision mitigation, parking sensors on the front and rear, and navigation systems. This one starts at about $36,000.

You can even explore purchasing a used BMW which can set you off this path. The BMW 3 Series is another cost-effective and beautiful sedan. Price here is also about $36,000, and the base models are equipped with such luxuries as push-button start, wipers that sense rain, Bluetooth capability, and dual-zone climate control. If you seek to add more to your ride, you can add on a sunroof and a 16 speaker Harman/Kardon stereo system. Did we mention it goes from 0-60 in 5.4 seconds? Walk, don’t run.

Acura- Details Make the Real Difference

If you seek practicality over all else, consider the Acura ILX. Firstly, the pricing on this car starts at just $30,000 and comes with all the trappings of a luxury vehicle you expect: Automatic LED headlamps, front seats that are heated (great if you live in cold climes) and dual-zone automatic climate control.

You also get the ever-handy keyless entry and ignition. If you so choose, you can add other great features like satellite radio, navigation, leather interior, forward collision mitigation and even cruise control.

The Acura TLX is another great model to get your hands on if it’s luxury and value you seek. Base models are standard with forward collision mitigation, cruise control, lane assist, and road departure mitigation. If you seek to add some options to your ride, consider the onboard navigation, leather interior, and heated steering wheel.

One thing we noticed is that the TLX does not come standard with all-wheel drive, which is important for hazardous road conditions. You may add that to your package for an extra $2000.

Cadillac- High-Tech Line

When you first see the Cadillac ATS, you are just amazed by how sleek it looks. You begin to imagine yourself driving in the car and passing other motorists with ease. The best part is that the dream doesn’t have to end with the price tag. Base models are equipped with all the basic luxuries we expect-keyless entry, adjustable front seats, Wi-Fi hotspot right in the car, and the ability to charge your wireless devices.

You can upgrade your base ride by adding xenon headlamps, leather interior, and heated seats. You can also ask them to include blind-spot monitoring as well.  Power also comes standard with this beast of a ride- the 4-cylinder engine fires with the power of 272 horses and 295 lbs. of torque. All wheel drive is an option to be added, but rear-wheel drive is standard on all models. Best of all, this starts at only $36000 for a 2018 ATS.  

Lincoln- Popular in The Luxury Auto Market

The Lincoln MKZ comes in two fuel options- you can choose gasoline or a hybrid. The price tag between the two is no different at $36,370 for the base, gas only version. You will enjoy xenon headlamps, rear parking sensors, and Apple and Android functionality for your smartphone (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to be specific). The 2018 MKZ also comes with Lincoln Connect, which is a 4G Modem that has Wi-Fi capability standard on whichever trim you choose.

You will love the turbocharged, 4-cylinder engine that puts out 245 horsepower and 275 lbs. of torque that comes standard on the base model. You will also enjoy heated front seats as part of the standard package. You can add on leather upholstery, cross-traffic alerts, blind-spot monitoring, and cruise control if you choose.


No matter which luxury car you decide to take home, it is truly a pleasure to know that you really can have it all. By doing just a little research you can certainly have the sort of car you really desire, at a price that won’t break the bank or leave you with buyer’s remorse.
