Many of the smaller more affordable luxury cars got a redesign for the 2015 model year and four out of the five SUV/Crossovers where not available in 2014.
New car shoppers are demanding more creature comforts for a lesser price and the manufacturers are doing everything they can to meet their demands.
KBB puts together a list of the top ten best luxury vehicles annually. Normally the entry level cut off is $40,000. But, this year they dropped it $5,000 to $35,000.
Mercedes-Benz has a couple vehicles on the list. One is the CLA-Class Sedan, it provides drivers the performance and handling of the more expensive Mercedes-Benz vehicles at a more reasonable price. The other is in the SUV/crossover category, the GLA-Class has ample cargo space and plenty of room to sit five people comfortably. The GLA-Class is classified as a SUV but has the performance and handling that you would experience from a car. You can even get the GLA-Class in an all-wheel-drive still well under the $35,000 price point.
The only General Motors product on the list, the 2015 Cadillac ATS provides new car shoppers a choice of a coupe or sedan. The ATS has some pretty stiff competition being in the same category with the BMW 3 Series and C-Class Benz. Being the “new car on the block,” the Cadillac ATS stands its ground with fantastic performance, handling and some really great engine choices.

Competition Between Dealers Always Gets You the Best Price
When negotiating a new car’s price, it’s important to know the dealer invoice price and what other people are paying for the same vehicle in your local area. Otherwise, you won’t know what’s a good price to pay for the vehicle.
I highly recommend using an online referral service such as Ryde Shopper or Motor Trend, their quotes will automatically include any discounts or cash-back incentives currently available in the marketplace.
