For many, owning luxury cars is a status badge and which happens but once in a lifetime. So, it should come as good news that one can get a luxury car for about the same amount of a well-equipped compact SUV or a mid-size sedan. So, instead of plunking down over $50,000 for a luxury car, go through this amazing list of top luxury cars in 2020, which not only makes you the owner of a luxury car but also does not burn a hole in your pocket either:
1. BMW 2-series
Available in convertible and coupe types, the 2-series coupe is one of BMW’s cheapest models and extremely entertaining to drive. The base model features a turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine and is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, with the rear-wheel-drive making for sprightly and balanced handling.
2. BMW X1
The BMW X1 crossover SUV might not have the best front-wheel-drive-based platform, but it makes for an enjoyable and practical crossover nonetheless. Energetic driving dynamics with tons of space inside, an inline-four 2.0-liter 228-HP turbo engine, and an attractive base price makes this small luxury car from BMW a top draw.
3. Genesis G70
Aimed directly at the BMW 3-series is Hyundai’s Genesis G70, with the base price being the same as that of the base model BMW 320i which is exiting the lineup. As such, the Genesis G70 beats the latter in terms of features and horsepower, and the car also features athletic looks, a good rear-wheel-drive chassis, as well as two options for engines – a V6 3.3-liter twin-turbo one and an inline-four 2.0-liter turbo one.
4. Cadillac XT4
The Cadillac XT4 entry-level crossover ticks all major boxes when it comes to small, premium SUVs. It features a par-excellent mechanical package, a standard turbocharged inline-four 2.0-liter engine powering the front wheels with an optional all-wheel drive. The most enticing part about the luxury car is the low price of the base XT4 model, even if the higher trims cost more than that.
5. Audi Q3
The all-new Audi Q3 is better, bigger, and much more stylish with a lesser round, doughy appearance. The subcompact crossover boasts of Audi’s latest design language, including the adventurous LED lighting, the octagonal grille, and the arcing curves over each fender. The upgraded, bolder interiors, the optional Quattro all-wheel drive, and the turbocharged powertrain make up the best that this luxury car is.
6. Lincoln MKC
The updated Lincoln MKC features freshened looks, sitting firmly in the compact-sized class. The base model of this compact crossover offers a turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine, a standard front-wheel drive, and an optional all-wheel drive. It also features a decent-sized cargo space for a car in its class.
7. Volvo XC40
The smallest SUV from Volvo boasts of a distinctive, cute persona and charisma of its own, complete with an entire spectrum of trim and color choices. The value-oriented T4 trim from the XC40 lineup costs less than $35,000, front-wheel drive, and a less powerful albeit good enough turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine.
