Want a luxury car but don't want to pay luxury car prices? If so, it's the used market to the rescue. Luckily for used car shoppers, luxury sedans, coupes and convertibles depreciate pretty quickly, meaning you don't have to wait long for modern luxury vehicles to become affordable.

Here are seven great used luxury cars you can find on Autotrader for less than $20,000 for 2020.

2015-2019 Audi A3

2015-2019 Audi A3

The Audi A3 is a small and sporty luxury car available as a sedan or as a convertible. It has many of the benefits shared across the Audi lineup like a top-notch interior, agile handling and a lineup of potent engines. It's a little tight in the trunk and in the back seats, but that's not a problem if you're not planning on using this as a family car. The A3 represents a return to form in small, sporty luxury cars that are truly driver-oriented. There was also the A3 e-tron, which was a plug-in hybrid hatchback that can be found in this price range. Find an Audi A3 for sale

2009-2015 BMW 7 Series

2009-2015 BMW 7 Series

For luxury writ large, you can't do much better than the full-size BMW 7 Series. The 7 Series to get for less than $20,000 is the F01 generation that was introduced in the late 2000s. Its acceleration and handling are unparalleled in this class and you won't believe how agile it is for such a big sedan. Few cars in this class excel in both straight-line comfort and corner-carving performance quite like this BMW. There are a variety of engines available, from the base twin-turbo 6-cylinder all the way up to a twin-turbo V12, and you can't go wrong with any of them. Find a BMW 7 Series for sale

2014-2019 Cadillac CTS

2014-2019 Cadillac CTS

The Cadillac CTS is an underrated midsize luxury sedan with classy style, a comfortable interior and impressive driving dynamics. Unfortunately, you won't find the fire-breathing CTS-V in this price range, but the non-V CTS is still very much worth consideration. It's fun to drive in every configuration, it achieves excellent safety scores and it has a well-appointed interior. For a well-balanced luxury sedan that doesn't break the bank, a used CTS checks a lot of boxes for a lot of drivers. Find a Cadillac CTS for sale

2014-2019 Infiniti Q50

2014-2019 Infiniti Q50

Like the CTS, the compact Infiniti Q50 is another often-overlooked luxury sedan that is stuck in the shadows of its competitors. It has a fun-to-drive factor that you might expect from its German rivals but at a more affordable price point, with balanced ride and handling and a variety of engine options. You can get the base turbo-four, two available twin-turbo V6 engines, and there was even a V6 hybrid option available. The strong performance of this Infiniti makes it a bit of a modern-day sleeper. Find an Infiniti Q50 for sale

2013-2018 Lexus ES

2013-2018 Lexus ES

We won't pretend it's the most exciting car in its class, but the humble Lexus ES is a safe and comfortable choice in midsize luxury sedans. It comes with all of the reliability, safety and value that you would expect from a Lexus plus a legitimately luxurious interior and a more-than-adequate base V6 engine that nicely blends performance and fuel economy. Speaking of fuel economy, you can also get an ES Hybrid, achieving up to 40 miles per gallon in the city and 39 mpg on the highway. If you just need a car to get you from A to B and want something a little more interesting than a Camry, the ES is a great choice. Find a Lexus ES for sale

2014-2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class

2014-2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class

The Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class is the entry-level Mercedes, but that certainly doesn't mean it's a cheaply made car. The CLA-Class is a small sedan with real luxury car credentials with a high-end cabin, tons of modern technology and as much driving pleasure as you'd expect from any Mercedes-Benz model. The CLA-Class is also great on gas when you opt for the base engine, but if you crave more performance, there's a CLA 45 AMG option available that might be difficult to find in this price range. Find a Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class for sale

2005-2012 Porsche Boxster

2005-2012 Porsche Boxster

The 987 generation of the Porsche Boxster is starting to become the best value in used Porsche roadsters creeping under the $20,000 mark. This second-generation Boxster did away with the controversial "fried egg" headlights of its predecessor plus more styling cues, making it a more modern car and, of course, improved performance. If you like the idea of a fun, mid-engine sports car with an affordable price tag, this is the Boxster for you. It blends performance, luxury and distinct style in a way that only Porsche can. Find a Porsche Boxster for sale
