One of the biggest myths about owning a luxury car is that it is far beyond the reach of most people. However, it’s possible to find luxury models that are a little older but still provide reliability and that sense of significance that makes them so popular. Here are three reliable Japanese luxury cars that can usually be purchased for under $20,000.
1- 2012 Acura TSX
The Acura is a sedan class car that gives people a great choice for drivers that want something between a compact and a midsized vehicle. This car also comes in a 4-door and 5-door model to suit different passenger or storage needs. You also get some options for the engine. If fuel efficiency is more important, a 4-cylinder engine gets about 7.6L/100 km on the highway, but if you want power, a V6 engine provides 280 hp.
The Acura TSX comes in with the goods for premium features. Some of the standard features of the 2012 model include leather upholstery, powered sunroof, xenon headlights, and even Bluetooth. If you’re looking for a combination of power and quality inside the cabin, the 2012 Acura is easy to find at reasonable price points.
2 - 2012 Lexus RX 350
If you’re looking for something luxurious, but more in the SUV area, then the 2012 Lexus RX 350 is one of the reliable used luxury cars under $20,000 you should be looking at. Like the Audi, this comes with AWD, which you’d expect in an SUV, but you also get a premiere driving experience.
When it debuted in 2011, the 2012 Lexus RX 350 was well received for all the features included at the price. You can get a powerful V6 engine, but you also get many top trim perks like a nine-speaker stereo system, rear-seat entertainment systems, adaptive cruise control, and a stunning, roomy cabin for maximum comfort. People willing to buy an older model will get a great, luxury SUV ride for less with this choice.
3 - 2007 Infiniti M
If you want power, performance, and luxury features that don’t necessarily stand out in a crowd, this may be the car for you. What the Infiniti M lacks in edgy design, it makes up for with either 280 or 335 hp depending on what kind of engine you want.
This is a 4-door sedan that is available in different trims, all of which sport a leading class amount of cabin space for generous head and legroom. Standard features include 10-way power-adjustable driver seat, wood trim, and dual-zone automatic climate control. The driving experience is also a cut above, with a 3.5L V6 engine, 5-speed automatic transmission, and double-wishbone in front and multi-link suspension in rear for responsiveness.
