If you’ve coveted some of the best luxury sport sedans on the market, but just don’t have sixty thousand dollars to spend, 2006 may just be your year. For a fraction of the original price, right around $20,000, you can drive some of the best cars on the road – some will still have remaining warranty and the ability to certify and renew that warranty.
2006 Acura TL
Despite sedate styling, the 2006 Acura TL offers decent sport feel with a 258 horsepower V6, six-speed manual transmission, and Brembo brakes. The TL is mainly an entry point to the luxury sport sedan market and can be yours for $19,500.
2006 Infiniti M35
With a 280 horsepower engine and reduced body roll, the Infiniti M35 Sport steps up luxury and performance for those that don’t want a flashing neon sign that says “back-road speeder”. You can step into the Japanese market with $21,000.
2006 Mercedes Benz E350
If brand is important, you can’t go wrong with Mercedes. The 2006 E350 significantly increased its power to reach 268 horses with a seven-speed automatic transmission. Though a bit over sized, the balance of refinement and performance is hard to beat for $20,500.
2006 BMW 330i
Pure driving excitement: that’s what BMW owners praise on a daily basis. On the firmer side of German design and engineering, the 2006 BMW 330i packs in road-hugging excitement with dogged determination and utilitarian style. Luxury for this model is defined as performance and no-nonsense build quality. Posh is left behind but the package is well worth the $19,500 price tag.
2004 Audi S4
Looking for a nasty, snarling wolf in Bavarian-style sheep’s clothing? How about a grocery-getter look perfect for soccer practice that also packs 340 horsepower and the ability to go from zero to speeding ticket in 5.5 seconds? It may be a tad older on paper, but you’ll stay competitive for less with the sneaky 2004 Audi S4 costing a mere $21,500.
