Driving a luxury car is a goal for many, but the pricing of most models makes them unattainable for many. Fortunately, these five luxury cars are among the cheapest you can buy in 2023, offering a high-level driving experience without breaking the bank.

The cheapest luxury car of 2023 is also the newest model on this list. The Acura Integra is a revival of a popular enthusiast nameplate from the early 90s, and the latest model retains its mainstream appeal. Affordable and fun to drive, the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine is good for 200 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque.

Luxury features in the Integra include heated front seats, a power-sliding moonroof, automatic emergency braking, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability.

2. 2022 Mercedes-Benz A-Class – $35,000

It may be surprising to see a Mercedes-Benz so high on this TrueCar list of cheapest luxury cars in 2023, but then again that’s why the A-Class finally came across the pond a few years ago. Designed as an appetizer to the pricier Mercedes-Benz models, the A-Class shows off what’s great about the German brand without running up the price tag.

Remote engine start and a widescreen digital display with digital instrument cluster present a high-class tech experience in the smallest Mercedes-Benz luxury sedan. And with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine and sharp handling, it’s fun to drive as well.

3. 2023 Cadillac CT4 – $35,790

For enthusiasts that have been paying attention, this should come as no surprise. Cadillac has been on the rise of late, and the American luxury brand’s entry-level luxury sedan is another excellent example. For less than $36,000, the CT4 offers 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque from a 2.0-liter turbo four. It offers perhaps the most refined ride out of all the vehicles on this list, and comes with both adaptive cruise control and In-Car WiFi as standard.

4. 2023 Audi A3 – $36,495

The Audi A3 is one of our favorite small luxury cars, and we’ve just found another reason to love the German compact. A combined fuel economy of 32 mpg and a punchy 2.0-liter EA888 turbocharged four-cylinder makes the A3 an enjoyable and easy car for daily drives. Sharp handling and Quattro all-wheel drive allow it to handle year-round driving duties without question. And with possibly the most comfortable seats and a stylish, modern cabin, it is an easy car to love.

5. 2023 BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe – $38,795

The compact BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe isn’t the most spacious car on this list, but what it does offer is strong performance from a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine and more engaged handling than some of the other choices. With front-wheel drive, this compact luxury four-door offers up to 33 mpg highway, while xDrive all-wheel drive is available for added control in northern climates. The refined ride and cabin appointments are nice even at base spec, but adding features and does tend to run up the price of the 2 Series four-door.
