Luxury cars represent the best the automotive world has to offer. With their serene cabins and deluxe amenities, these cars have the power to turn your everyday commute into a spa-like experience. Though the loftiest models in this segment come with six-figure price tags, there are choices available that can be yours for a relatively accessible cost.
That brings us to our list, which ranks the 10 most affordable luxury cars for the 2018 model year. Our picks are listed in descending order to the least expensive model.
Cars with manual transmissions aren’t exactly hot sellers with car buyers. With this in mind, our rankings are based on each model’s least expensive configuration when equipped with an automatic or continuously variable transmission. Prices reflect delivery and destination charges, and incentives are not included.
The models spotlighted on our list include everything from a distinctive-looking Cadillac to a pair of fun-to-drive BMWs.

This represents good value for shoppers seeking fuel-efficient transportation.
