Car shoppers often avoid looking at premium-level sedans because of affordability reasons. But quite a few entry-level luxury models are actually priced less than fully loaded mainstream competitors, while giving you more features and amenities, plus a higher level of craftsmanship. And that's the definition of value. So before you close the door on upscale vehicle brands and offerings, consider taking a closer look. To help you narrow the field, here are 5 premium sedans that may surprise you by fitting into your budget.

2017 Acura ILX

2017 Acura ILX

This premium performance sedan is based on the Honda Civic, but boasts a sportier, more aggressive outer show. The interior is decidedly upscale, laden with good-quality materials and plenty of cutting-edge technologies, like a multi-angle backup camera and an Active Noise Cancellation system. The ILX is motivated by a 2.4-liter engine outputting 201 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque, for a spirited punch of performance. This engine ties to an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, yielding combined fuel economy of up to 29 miles per gallon. Aside from efficiency, expect plenty of agility and quickness for a fun and satisfying driving experience, too. The 2017 Acura ILX has a base MSRP of $27,990.

2017 Buick Regal

2017 Buick Regal

The Buick Regal is impressive on the outside, inside and under the hood. Its strong stance and sleek lines exude a sporty look and feel you might not expect from this brand. Within, the cabin is plush and comfortable, with characteristics such as well-padded seats, good ergonomics and even a solar-absorbing windshield that soaks up a portion of the sun's rays before they pass into the passenger compartment. At the same time, the Regal affords a cockpitlike setting for the driver to enjoy the piloting experience, which employs a 182-hp 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine or a very robust 259-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder. Both engines are managed by a 6-speed automatic transmission, yielding up to 21 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. The 2017 Buick Regal has a starting price of $27,065.

2017 Volkswagen CC

Among premium sedans, the Volkswagen CC is a great car that everyone seems to forget, despite its striking good looks and superb German engineering.

This is the ideal vehicle for stepping up from a mainstream family sedan to something a bit more sophisticated and fun. Propulsion comes from a 200-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine tied to a performance-centric 6-speed automated manual transmission, achieving fuel economy of 22 mpg city/31 mpg hwy. The CC offers a sporty drive on twisty roads and a nice, calm demeanor on long stretches of highway. It has a base MSRP of $34,475.
