Top 10: Used luxury cars for £30,000

If you’ve got £30,000 to spend and want a car loaded with luxury kit then one option would be a new Ford Mondeo in Titanium X trim. A more adventurous alternative though is a used luxury saloon.

Armed with £30,000, the market is wide and varied, with a huge choice of BMWs, Bentleys and Jaguars on offer. Admittedly, these cars will cost significantly more in upkeep, but the rewards of owning a prestige model are undeniable. So, for the ultimate in comfort and status, why not think about putting one of these on your driveway instead.

Audi A8

Often underrated, the A8 is a fine luxury saloon combining subtle looks with superb build quality. Aluminium construction keeps weight down to a reasonable 1850kg or so and it comes with plenty of kit including the user-friendly MMI multi-media system.

You’ll find plenty of 2011/12 diesel models at franchised or independent dealers, most with less than 40,000 miles, and we’d recommend the 3.0TDI in SE Executive specification for its blend of economy and refinement. 0-60mph takes just 6.1 seconds and you’ll average over 30mpg.
