10 Best Certified Pre-Owned Luxury Cars Under $30,000

We all want more for less, but it seems there’s always a tradeoff. For car buyers intrigued by the idea of stepping up into luxury-land for mainstream money, however, automakers’ Certified Pre-Owned programs can be win-win propositions. Blending the confidence of a manufacturer-backed warranty with the significant savings of buying used, CPO programs are the best of both worlds for many shoppers. To whet your appetite, here's a list of standout 2013 model-year luxury cars with Kelley Blue Book CPO values between $20,000 and $30,000.

While most of today’s sub-$40,000 luxury sedans are designed with performance-oriented style and tuning, the roomy and refined Lexus ES is unapologetically focused on comfort.

Original MSRP: $36,995
Current CPO Value: $26,723

No Infiniti in the history of the brand has been more lusted after than the gorgeous, powerful G Coupe (known today as the Q60). The fact that you can drive a fairly fresh example for less than $25,000 only increases the appeal.

Original MSRP: $41,305
Current CPO Value: $24,697

As fun to drive as it is boldly styled, the Cadillac CTS is a more than appealing alternative to its European rivals. And at $20,000 it feels like an absolute steal.

Original MSRP: $39,990
Current CPO Value: $20,104

One of the first luxury sport utility vehicles remains among the most fun to drive. Combining true BMW driving dynamics with all-wheel drive and excellent cargo versatility, the X3 is luxuriously well-rounded.

Original MSRP: $39,395
Current CPO Value: $27,649

The Kelley Blue Book editors have personally recommended the Acura MDX more than any other 3-row luxury SUV.

Original MSRP: $44,175
Current CPO Value: $28,634

Even in its eighth model year without a major change, the Audi Q5 remains one of our favorite SUVs for its exceptional exterior styling, interior design and driving dynamics.

Original MSRP: $36,795
Current CPO Value: $27,850

The first of two sedans on this list that stickered near $50,000 when new just a few years ago, the Lexus GS deftly blends sport, comfort and proven Lexus reliability.

Original MSRP: $47,775
Current CPO Value: $29,229

Audi’s beautiful A5 coupe puts six-figure styling within much easier reach, especially for buyers who take advantage of Audi’s CPO program.

Original MSRP: $39,945
Current CPO Value: $25,802

The most prestigious car on this list also offers the biggest savings. A factory-backed, 3-year-old E-Class can be had for $25,000 less than when it was new.

Original MSRP: $51,905
Current CPO Value: $26,502

The world’s most legendary sport sedan combines enthusiast-grade driving dynamics with daily driver comfort and just about as much curb appeal as you can buy for $24,000.

Original MSRP: $38,845
Current CPO Value: $23,484
