7 CPO Luxury Cars For $10,000 Less Than a New Model


If you’re interested in buying a new luxury car, you might be disappointed to find out just how expensive some high-end models have gotten. But that doesn’t necessarily have to be the case. For proof, check out our list of seven certified pre-owned luxury cars that offer a $10,000 discount compared to their original MSRP. Each one also boasts a long, manufacturer-backed certified warranty — so the only way you’ll know that you bought a used car is by checking the odometer.

Audi A5

Audi A5

With a starting price of around $41,000 with shipping, and much more once you begin adding options, the Audi A5 is rather pricey for a 4-cylinder, 2-door car. But it’s also beautiful, luxurious and — most importantly — affordable, if you go for a certified pre-owned model. We say that because there’s a wide range of certified pre-owned A5 models — more than 150 — available right now for less than $35,000, which is easily a $10,000 discount compared to a new model with popular options. As a bonus, each one includes Audi’s excellent 6-year or 100,000-mile bumper-to-bumper certified warranty, which is among the best certified pre-owned warranties in the business. Find an Audi A5 for sale

Cadillac CTS

Cadillac CTS

With a starting price of around $46,000 with shipping, Cadillac’s once-bargain-priced CTS has climbed the ladder from “affordable” to “expensive.” But that’s no problem for shoppers who don’t mind getting a certified pre-owned model. We say that because there’s no shortage of certified pre-owned CTS models available on Autotrader for around $35,000 or less — a discount of more than $10,000 compared to the price of a new one. And each CTS comes with Cadillac’s excellent certified pre-owned warranty, which lasts for 6 years or 70,000 miles from the car’s original sale date. Find a Cadillac CTS for sale

Infiniti G37

Infiniti G37

Although Infiniti’s excellent G37 has been renamed the Q50, everything that has always made this car so great is still true. There’s still a reliable, powerful V6 up front, rear- or all-wheel drive underneath, and a wide range of modern high-tech gadgets inside. The only drawback: The latest Q50 starts around $38,000 with shipping, which makes it more expensive than ever. Fortunately, Infiniti offers an excellent certified pre-owned program where drivers can easily find a wide range of certified pre-owned G37 models with a $10,000 discount from new. Find an Infiniti G37 for sale

Jaguar XF

Jaguar XF

Jaguar’s luxurious XF sedan slots just below the high-end XJ in the brand’s ever-growing lineup. With handsome styling and lots of modern technology, the XF is very appealing to a lot of luxury car shoppers — although its base price tag of $51,000 with shipping is a bit out of reach for many drivers. Enter Jaguar’s excellent certified pre-owned program, which offers 6 years or 100,000 miles of coverage from the day the car is originally sold. The program also features dozens of different XF models available for around $45,000 or less, according to certified pre-owned listings on Autotrader. Find a Jaguar XF for sale

Lexus LS

Lexus LS

The Lexus LS is an impressive full-size luxury sedan with V8 power, an enormous back seat, a highly comfortable ride and a long list of impressive high-tech features. Unfortunately, all that comes at a price: a steep $73,500 with shipping — and that’s before options. If you’re not looking to spend that kind of money on your next luxury sedan, you might want to consider Lexus’s certified pre-owned program, which offers 3 years of bumper-to-bumper coverage from the day you buy your car. It also features more than 200 different LS models for sale on Autotrader with an asking price of around $65,000 or less. Find a Lexus LS for sale

Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Although we love the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class, we can see how some drivers might be put off by the sedan’s continually rising base price, which now stands around $39,500 with shipping. Fortunately, drivers who don’t want to pay that much have another option: buying a C-Class with a Mercedes-Benz certified pre-owned warranty. While it won’t have the same body style as the new model, it will feature comprehensive, manufacturer-backed warranty coverage, and there are nearly 900 examples on Autotrader right now with an asking price of less than $28,000. Find a Mercedes-Benz C-Class for sale

Volvo S60

Volvo S60

The Volvo S60 is a comfortable midsize luxury sedan that manages to perfectly bridge the gap between “sporty” and “relaxed,” which places it among our favorite luxury cars. Priced from around $35,000 with shipping, the S60 is hardly expensive — especially for a luxury car. But drivers who want a better deal can turn to the used market, where they’ll find dozens of certified pre-owned S60 models available on Autotrader for around $28,000 or less, which is a major discount from new. Shoppers will also get to enjoy Volvo’s excellent certified pre-owned warranty, which covers cars for 7 years or 100,000 miles from the original sale date. Find a Volvo S60 for sale
