Luckily, when it comes to getting a luxury automobile, you don’t need to get a Rolls Royce or Bentley to enjoy the finer things in life anymore.

Several luxury car manufacturers have released more affordable car models for those looking to spice up their garages while staying in their budget. What are five of the most surprisingly affordable luxury cars on the market? We put together the following list of cars packed with comforts and features. While these are not the only luxury cars available in their respective price ranges, these are the ones that stood out to our team while researching this write up.

    Chrysler 300 over ALL of them. Of course, the press picks almost all foreign junk (cough…blow…cough…).

    • RickMeister

      …rented a Chrysler 300 – cheap junk.

    • pininfarina

      One of the worst cars on the road.

  • Major

    There are few cars on the road better than Volvos…..they set the standard for safety that every other manufacturer followed.

  • JDS

    What in the world are you talking about? I couldn’t even remotely afford even one of those cars and we make over $100K a year!

    • rs4

      Then you are doing something wrong. I make 70k and I drive a rather nice s4. Even with the house and kids… Maybe you’re in an area where the cost of living is to high? I know my buddy in Seattle just bought a 1700sqft house for 440k. While down here in St Louis 250k buys you 2600sqft on 13acres

    Hyundai Genesis R Spec kick the asses of all these cars. Drive one and then see if you don’t agree!

  • Wiseman

    None of the 5 listed are real luxury cars, such as Mercedes, BMW. Bottom line: you get what you pay for.

    • Adam

      I owned 3 BMW 7 series. My current car is the Hyundai Genesis and let me tell you there is no difference in handling, interior and fit and finish. Some of us get what they pay for others over pay!

    Affordable and Luxury shouldn’t go together.
