Living a life of luxury takes its toll on your bank account. Most people can’t afford that kind of lifestyle, but you can get pretty close with the right car. You aren’t going to be driving around in an Aston Martin anytime soon but luxury cars don’t always come with such a hefty price tag. There are plenty of more reasonably priced ones on the market that are a bit more realistic. Driving around in one of these will give you the chance to live a life of luxury, if only for a few hours a day. If you’re fed up of your boring old car, why not consider one of these?
The new Mercedes-Benz CLA250 is incredible value for money and a great family car. The spacious interior and boot give you enough room to be practical while feeling luxurious as well. If you’re thinking about picking one up, don’t opt for the sports suspension unless you don’t mind sacrificing comfort. The front wheel drive might not be a problem in other cars but here, it’s a bit stiff to drive. People have also reported issues with the gearbox, so you might find yourself needing a mercedes repair company. To avoid any problems, make sure you go for the dual clutch option. The interior has a simple design and doesn’t overcrowd itself with pointless bits and bobs but the back seats are a bit small. However, it is still a good all-rounder and great for the relatively low price of $32,000.
BMW 2 Series
The BMW 2 series is like a coupe version of the old 1 series. It’s not as stylish as some of its competitors but it’s still a brilliant luxury car that won’t cost you too much. The engine is fairly small like most BMW’s but it still gets the job done. In terms of handling, this is one of the best cars on this list. The steering isn’t especially sharp but it’s incredibly accurate. It’s a very smooth drive for only $33,000.
Volvo S60 T5
The Volvo S60 T5 puts a lot of focus on safety so if you’re looking for a luxury car that’s also great for day to day family driving, this is the one for you. That doesn’t mean that it sacrifices other areas though. It still has a sporty feel to it when you drive, which you wouldn’t always expect from a car that boasts safety above anything else. It has a lot of grip but the main complaint would be that the steering can feel a little unresponsive at times. The quality of the interior is better than all of the other cars on this list, but it can feel overcrowded in there because they’ve packed it full of gadgets. The front seats are nice and comfy but, like the Mercedes, the back seats can get a bit cramped. These small niggles are worth living with for the low price of around $34,000.
