Used Luxury Sedans You Can Afford

Maserati Ghibli

The Maserati Ghibli is a relatively exotic looking luxury sedan that has all of the features of the Maserati sports cars, with more cargo space and seating. The Ghibli wears the company’s grille and Trident badge proudly. Like many other Maseratis, this car depreciates so quickly that they drop into an affordable price range in just a couple of years. Within the past decade alone, the price of a used Ghibli has dropped down below $30,000 making it a great car to purchase if you’re in the luxury sedan market but want something that will stand out.

While a standard Ghibli can offer anywhere between 300 – 500hp they are notoriously riddled with mechanical problems. While they can be an affordable car to purchase their maintenance and repair costs can add up quickly.

Audi A7

The Audi A7 is a striking and powerful sedan that offers everything you could dream of in a sports car, as a sedan. The Audi all-wheel-drive system means the power driven by the whiny supercharged V6 motor grips the road and gives you an unforgettable driving experience.

While it is one of the biggest sedans Audi has to offer, the A7 doesn’t sacrifice style. An aggressive front end wrapping around the recognizable Audi grille lights up with beautiful LED headlights. The Sportback design maximizes space without catering to the typical boxy-style of many lower-end sedans. The back seats offer space and dual climate control, and the liftback makes this car ideal for moving a lot of cargo.

Porsche Panamera

When it comes to Porsche, you think of style, performance, and price. For most people, a Porsche is a two-seater sports car that you can take out on the weekends or drive to a car show. Porsche also has an offering of luxury SUVs and their Panamera sedan, which are all great cars for your daily drive.

A used Porsche Panamera doesn’t have to break your budget, in fact, you can get the last generations of Panamera for less than an average of $30,000. This Porsche isn’t just a stealthy mom car. There are several engine options to cater to the driving style of any owner, with up to 570hp in some years. That’s more horsepower than some Cayman and Boxsters have! The suspension guarantees comfort even on the bumpiest of roads while the steering and handling make the car feel like it’s as light as a smaller sports coupe.

The exterior of the car offers smooth lines following from the hood all of the way back to the trunk, deleting any boxy angles that could make the car look like a standard sedan. The striking front-end is iconically Porsche, and the styling may make you okay with the fact that this is a front-engine car. A spacious backseat is big enough for two car seats, or can comfortably fit adults without getting too cramped. The hatch-style trunk line optimizes cargo space, making this car a great grocery-getter or daily driver.
