7 cheapest-to-own large, luxury sedans
text

Some high-end cars are easier on your wallet than others. Here's Bankrate's list of seven larger luxury cars that are the cheapest to own.

When considering actual ownership costs, the question is: What's the manufacturer's suggested retail price got to do with it? Not as much as you might think.

The consumer auto advice site Edmunds.com has a calculator projecting the "true cost to own," or TCO, over five years. In addition to the purchase price, it factors in costs that consumers often don't consider, such as depreciation, loan interest, insurance premiums, fuel and maintenance costs.

Edmunds assembled these picks based on their true-cost-to-own pricing system. Because taxes and insurance costs vary by location and driving habits influence fuel costs, the TCO numbers are comparative rather than absolute. These are national averages; the "true cost to own" for your ZIP code may be different.

Here are the best bets for the cheapest-to-own larger luxury cars.
