Auto » High-End Value: 7 Cheap-To-Own Luxury Cars

7 cheapest-to-own large, luxury sedans
  • 2012 Hyundai Equus

  • 2012 Price: $59,000
  • True cost to own: $79,784
  • Fuel economy MPG: 15 city, 23 highway

Separating the two versions of the 2012 Hyundai Equus is the level of rear-seat amenities. Edmunds included the less expensive Signature model on this list. It seats three in its second-row seat. The Ultimate only accommodates two in seats that recline and massage and are separated by a mini refrigerator.

A new 5-liter V-8 sends 429 horsepower to the rear wheels via an eight-speed, driver-shiftable, automatic transmission.

Equus is the second Hyundai on this list for good reason.

A remarkable value, this luxury car provides a high level of standard equipment in its spacious cabin, such as heated and ventilated front seats, leather seating, heated steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, navigation system, rearview camera, nine air bags, Bluetooth connectivity and a 17-speaker Lexicon 7.1 surround-sound audio system with a USB/auxiliary input jack for your music-playing device.

Equus is the poster child for buying smart.
