6 Used Luxury Cars Which Prove Being Luxurious Doesn’t Have To Be Expensive


When most people settle for a used car, they often tend to steer more towards the ordinary family hatchback or estate. However, some of us want that opulence from luxury limos, such as the Mercedes Benz S-Class. However, the latest LWB S-Class does cost a lot. In fact, I found that it even the middle-of-the-range diesel S 350 d L SE costs £69,555!!!

Don’t have that kind of cash? Well, help is at hand with these cheapskate alternatives. Starting from just £1,500.

£1,500 – £17,500 – The grandfather of the new S-Class. The Mercedes W220.

To get the ball rolling, this is the low light among all the S-Classes that have come out over the years. The W220 has the sort of technology you would find in most modern cars today.

With this particular generation, you can get a choice of engines. I’d recommend the 2.8 litre deisel, despite it being a bit slow, it rather economical for it’s age.

To watch out for – well, during the period of the late 90s, Mercedes quality did take a huge dip. Some early cars did suffer from electronic glitches, so it’s important to check every button works. Rust on sills, and the lower door areas? Avoid. These cars come with a 30 year rust-proof warranty. But only if you take them to a Mercedes bodyshop every 2 years. If there is damp under the front passenger footwell, prepare to buy a new wiring loom.

Tempted? This late S350 for £2,295 is a bargain in the world of luxury limos. Sadly, there is a dent on the trunk. Annoyingly.

£3,500 – £7,500 – A impressive luxury limo with a 2.7 twin-turbo V6. The Jaguar XJ.

Of course, a Jaaaaaaaaaaag.

I would clearly be mad if I didn’t include a car with an engine which took Jeremy Clarkson around the Nurburgring in less than 10 minutes. Or took him 840 miles from Basel to Blackpool with not fuel stops and yet still had diesel in in the tank.
