If you live in the U.S., $30,000 can net you any one of a hundred different really spectacular luxury cars or SUVs, from brands including BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, Audi, Volvo, Lexus, Infiniti, Dodge, Alfa Romeo, Jeep, Chevrolet, Mini and Jaguar to name but a few.Just because you can't afford to buy a bona fide luxury car doesn't mean the manufacturers don't want your money.Unfortunately, you can't afford all those niceties, so BMW is willing to sell you the car with a barely adequate engine and none of the gear that makes the car appealing.Audi offers a stripped-down A3, Volvo has a bare-bones S60, Infiniti has the Q50 and Alfa Romeo has the basic Giulia.Just be aware that it won't pamper you, and will be next to impossible to sell down the road alongside all those imported pre-owned cars equipped with genuine leather seats, panoramic sunroofs, decent engines and navigation screens.
