13 Irresistible Luxury Cars That Tempt Even the Most Thrifty Shoppers

Luxury cars are supposed to alienate those who can’t or are unwilling to pay big money for them. At least, that’s how we’ve always perceived “luxury.” At the same time, some folks are ‘cheap’ regardless of their financial status. Spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on a car that serves the same primary purpose as a $30,000 model doesn’t make sense to such people. Financial expert Dave Ramsey recently published a list of the top ten cars driven by millionaires, and there was not a Ferrari or Rolls-Royce among them. Ramsey might have a point. A 2022 survey by Experian Automotive found that 61% of rich people (with household incomes over $250,000) go for regular brands like Toyota, Ford, and Honda. It makes you wonder who buys the expensive cars, then. Those who can’t resist them, maybe? It shows enthusiasts, rich and poor — fuel the market for expensive, niche cars. It’s more about attraction than money. Here are 13 luxury cars that are so compelling that even cheap people can’t stay away.

Out with the Venza, in with the Signia – 2025 Toyota Crown Signia First Look

After two attempts, the Toyota Venza still couldn't resonate with shoppers in the compact to midsize crossover category, despite our positive sentiment towards it. So, it is being replaced by a new model in the #Crown sub-family called the Crown Signia! Longer, lower, wider, and more athletic in appearance, the Crown #Signia is hybrid-only like the existing Crown sedan, but will only be launched with the sedan's base hybrid setup at launch. AWD is standard, though, as is a pretty swanky interior that should be able to one-up the Venza. Let's take a first look at the Crown Signia in person!
