Affordable luxury cars for 2011: Alternative models under $30k

By Alan Ng - Jun 9, 2011

At the start of the year, we gave you a list of a few motors that are considered by auto critics as ‘affordable luxury cars’. Now though as we prepare for a hot Summer, we have a list of alternative models that you may be interested in picking up on the cheap.

We say cheap, but the models we’ve picked out are all available for under $30,000. Some of you may feel this is still expensive, but for a luxury car we think it’s very reasonable, and you’ll find out why with the first model.

The Acura TSX is available to buy now, priced at approximately $29,890. The first hint of luxury on this one is a a voice-controlled navigation system, while you’ll also be impressed with a 2.4-liter, inline four-cylinder engine that can churn out 205 horsepower.

If that doesn’t take your fancy, maybe you want to consider the Cadillac CTS which is available for the slightly cheaper price of $29,660. The 2007 model runs on a 2.8-liter, V6 engine that offers 210 horsepower and it’s main luxurious feaures are the sport-tuned suspension, XM(R) Satellite Radio and OnStar features such as hands-free calling and navigation services.

If you are interested in viewing a few more alternative luxury cars for 2011 including a Mercedes Benz under $30,000, head to the report over at Askmen for full details. If you have purchased what you think is a luxury car, let us know how much you paid for it, and what features it comes with.
