You Don’t Have to Break the Bank for a Luxury Sedan

Today’s best luxury sedans are far more affordable than most people think. Just remember, having a prestigious badge on the front grille is only part of the winning equation when it comes to finding the perfect car for your driving needs.

Whether you want the razor-sharp handling provided by the Alfa Romeo Giulia, the quiet comfort of a Lexus ES (pictured above), or the poise and presence of a BMW 3 Series, there is plenty to choose among in this highly competitive market.

Some models, like the Kia Stinger, might lack a fancy label, but make up for that with a long list of standard features, not to mention world-class driving manners.

This slideshow focuses on luxury sedans that fall below a budget of $40,000. That might not sound like a lot, at least when it comes to putting the keys to a new Mercedes-Benz, Acura, Cadillac, or Audi in your pocket. Then again, you might be surprised how far a dollar will stretch, even with the most recognized and respected luxury brands.
