Top-Shelf Badges for Bottom-Shelf Prices

When shopping for a new car or SUV, you might be surprised to learn how accessible and affordable a luxury model can be. After all, you work hard for your money, so having a vehicle that’s a cut above mainstream models can be a nice reward for a job well done.

A relatively low entry price is only part of the story, however, and finding the best entry-level luxury vehicle means taking into account a number of factors: performance, safety features, interior quality, comfort, and predicted reliability.

We’ve compiled 15 of the least expensive ways to put the keys to a luxury car or SUV in your pocket. All of them have a starting price below $35,000, and they range from small cars (like the 2018 BMW 3 Series pictured above) and midsize sedans, to some of the most popular compact SUVs sold today.
