Suppose you’re looking for a reliable, local used car dealer. In that case, there’s no one better than Future Ford of Sacramento, where you can select from a host of luxury vehicles without breaking the bank. Considering the used market, you can easily get a luxury car for less than $35,000. We tell our customers to embrace the used car market because it expands possible purchases. If you like a luxury car that’s been discontinued, that does not have to affect your search if you are ready and willing to buy one a few years old, whereas relying solely on new options forces you to pay higher prices and limits the number of options you have. Who wants that?

Today, we’re going to guide you through some luxury cars that you should keep an eye out for the next time you visit us. The automotive market is hopping, and you don’t want to miss out on a dream vehicle. Our extensive inventory of pre-owned luxury models gives you the ability to enjoy an elevated driving experience at a fraction of the price. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite models, and when you’re ready to experience them in person, we invite you to come down to our dealership and speak with our friendly and knowledgeable team.

The Cadillac CT4

When it comes to luxury, few brand names scream it more than Cadillac. Even the name itself has an elegant flow to it. A pre-owned Cadillac CT4 will please anyone who wants to ride in luxury without spending too much. Past models of the CT4 can be found for under $35,000 without sacrificing the level of opulence you’re looking for. In fact, you can likely find the CT4’s highest trim, Premium Luxury, for under 35K, too.

Leather upholstery in a CT4 will immediately alert your passengers that they’re about to take a ride in a high-end vehicle. There’s ambient interior lighting to give the inside of your CT4 an incredible glow, while the Premium Luxury trim’s 14-speaker Bose sound system will make your passengers feel like they have comfortable front-row seats at a concert.

The CT4’s exterior matches the classiness of the interior, too. For instance, past models have had 18-inch wheels that glisten as you drive down the road. The 2022 model has a front that features a sardonic grin thanks to the grille and headlight placement, as if it’s amused at how other cars cannot keep up when it comes to curb appeal. A Cadillac of any year always has its iconic logo right on the front of its grille, letting everyone know you’re the proud owner of a celebrated luxury car.

The Audi A3

Four interlocking silver circles on the front grille can only mean one thing: an Audi. Audi’s logo alerts other drivers that someone in the neighborhood has invested in a German luxury car that’s almost impossible to beat in style and performance. The A3 is a little smaller than other Audis, but it retains the same build, so your curb appeal remains high, and onlookers remain awed.

The Audi A3’s exterior has a dash of the European aesthetic, a more refined look than most other sedans on the market today. Its inside has a healthy dose of technology, so your passengers stay impressed by what you can do. The infotainment screen, for example, pops up in many models, which grants the A3 a futuristic feel that meshes well with a dark leather interior. The digital gauge display will provide even more of a modern feel.

This luxury car’s performance impresses just as much as its interior and exterior designs. Higher-end trims can go exceptionally fast, with specific models going from 0 to 60 mph in under 6 seconds. Even the models with just the standard engine will provide a smooth, bump-free ride. The available all-wheel drive will let you show off your car wherever you go, no matter the conditions. A luxury vehicle can also be a bit of a performance vehicle, as the Audi A3 proves year after year.

The Kia Stinger

Kia’s Stinger has been one of the most affordable luxury cars since it debuted with its 2018 model. That’s why it’s relatively easy to find a used one for under 35K compared to other luxury brands. However, do not let the lower price tag fool you: the Stinger can compete with others in its class. Kia was not known for luxury models, so it has made the Stinger more affordable as it tries to make headway in the luxury market.

The Stinger brings a sporty touch to the luxury lineup with its stylish grille and cool headlights. Its glossy exterior resembles other luxury options, but its curves bring a sporty vibe. The 2022 model, in particular, provides drivers with a smirking, sporty front. The Stinger will be the way to go for anyone who wants to mix capability, performance, and luxury.

The smooth curve of the Stinger’s roof allows it to have an interior with a lot of space, a feature far too many luxury cars lack, in our opinion. It can even have hatchback capability should you choose, and it can do so without losing its pleasurable exterior aesthetic. Its more recent models have a robust engine standard and the ability to upgrade to one that will have you enjoying every moment behind the wheel. The Stinger is a worthy investment, considering all that it can do.

Lincoln Continental

For many years, the Continental was seen as a prestige luxury sedan, but it was discontinued after 2020 since Lincoln took more interest in SUVs. However, thanks to the used market, you can still own a Continental of your own and one with quite a memorable name. Since Lincoln made a new model a few years ago, many Continentals on the used market today can be found for at or under $35,000, depending upon the trim, which is far less than they initially cost. You’ll be getting quite the bargain.

Continentals, even at the standard trim, are known for their comfortable front seating. Some even include massage capabilities. In fact, if you most want a cushioned ride from a luxury sedan, you cannot go wrong with a Continental. They’re built to last, too, so if you’re going for an older model to keep costs low, you’ll still have a sedan that will keep everyone in luxury.

The Continental may not be known for sportiness, but it has consistently come with a powerful engine. After all, the 2020 model’s standard engine gives 305 hp, meaning you can take off from a standstill quite quickly. Its large trunk, a constant throughout all models, lets you pack in a lot, and the car’s rear design prevents the trunk from being noticeable: best of both worlds in our book. As this line has ended, you’ll also have a luxury vehicle that stands out from the pack as it’ll be rarer and rarer as the years go by. That uniqueness is impossible to find among the brands still producing luxury sedans.
