10 Best Certified Pre-Owned Luxury Cars Under $40,000

A certified pre-owned (CPO) luxury car can take a lot of the sting out of the sticker price of a new premium car. Prices of new luxury cars can get pretty crazy, especially when you start adding options, but a CPO model offers a nice discount along with a manufacturer-backed warranty.

Here are the best certified pre-owned luxury cars you can find on Autotrader under $40,000.

1. 2017-2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia

The Alfa Romeo Giulia is an interesting alternative to more mainstream compact luxury sedans. It has some Italian flair in its styling and exciting performance, even in the base model. If you’re concerned about reliability, then the warranty that comes with certified models can give you some extra peace of mind. Find an Alfa Romeo Giulia for sale

6. 2017-2019 Infiniti Q60

2019 Infiniti Q60 Front Right Side

Reasonably affordable luxury coupes are getting harder to find these days. An often overlooked option is the stylish Infiniti Q60. On top of its head-turning looks, the Q60 offers a nice interior and exciting engines, especially the available V6 that isn’t too hard to find at this price point. A CPO Q60 is a great value as long as you don’t need much back seat space. Find an Infiniti Q60 for sale

7. 2019-2020 Lexus ES

2020 Lexus ES Front Left Side in Blue

The Lexus ES is a top choice in midsize luxury sedans. It’s not the sportiest car in its class, but it’s safe, reliable, efficient (especially the hybrid model), and comfortable. On top of all of that, it offers sleek styling and affordable pricing. It’s an especially good value on the CPO market after some depreciation. Find a Lexus ES for sale

8. 2017-2020 Lincoln Continental
