Got your eye on some luxury cars that you feel are out of your price range? They don’t have to be, if you know these simple methods of getting the car you want for less.
1. Buy used. There’s no good reason to buy a luxury vehicle brand new, apart from the utter prestige of it all. If you’re just after the awesome ride, then you might as well save your money and buy used. Look for certified pre-owned car dealerships to get warrantied vehicles for less.
2. Skip the bells and whistles. If you insist on buying a new car, you’ll need to carefully examine your need for each option. Some add thousands of dollars to the base vehicle’s price and are hardly worth it. You may even be able to add aftermarket options for less.
3. Choose the right vehicle. Luxury cars are available in a range of prices. BMW even makes a very affordable car, the BMW X1, while the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class is within reach of just about everyone’s budget. Selecting the right car means you stay within budget while enjoying the luxury vehicle you’ve always wanted.
You may not be able to afford the latest Ferrari on the market, but that doesn’t mean you can’t ride in style in luxury cars. Just make sure you’ve done your research.
