1) 2018 Acura ILX

$28,100 | U.S. News Score: 7.5/10

The Acura ILX is one of the least expensive ways to put a small luxury sedan in your garage or driveway. It’s also easy on your wallet, thanks to its frugal 201-horsepower four-cylinder engine. The EPA-estimated fuel economy figures are 25 mpg in city driving and 35 mpg on the highway. This makes the ILX as efficient as many economy cars, though that’s partly because this Acura sedan is based on the budget-minded Honda Civic.

While the Honda does well in our rankings, the ILX lags behind its competition because it delivers handling and ride characteristics that don’t live up to the higher standards expected from a luxury car. It’s also skimpy on standard features, which means you’ll likely be tempted to add options that bump this Acura’s price even higher.
