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

7 cheapest-to-own large, luxury sedans
  • 2012 Lincoln MKS

  • 2012 Price: $43,390
  • True cost to own: $60,152
  • Fuel economy MPG: 16 city, 23 highway

The listed price is for the 2012 Lincoln MKS with all-wheel drive.

In addition to its relatively low cost of ownership, the MKS scores high marks for passenger space and cargo room.

You can make the argument that it's really a gussied-up Ford Taurus, but the MKS provides a much more enhanced passenger experience with such features as a power-tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather seating, a power rear sunshade, six air bags, Ford's SYNC connectivity, and a THX-infused audio system with 10 speakers and a USB/auxiliary input jack for music.

Fuel economy is an EPA-estimated 16 mpg city and 23 mpg highway generated by a 273-horsepower V-6 with six-speed automatic transmission.

It's a sensible luxury car at a sensible price.
