Scouring The RealReal, Poshmark and our favorite consignment stores for gently used, still-of-the-moment dresses and handbags has become a sport. Gently used or New With Tags is the objective: It’s almost like you’re the first owner. Same with nearly new, low-mileage luxury cars. 

We are fans of used luxury cars for several reasons. First, they tend to have larger, more powerful engines that will last longer. Then, they are notable for a more timeless design; interiors and exteriors tend to evolve rather than undergo dramatic transformations one generation to the next. 

And, they are outfitted with more durable and timeless finishes and materials, and technology can be ahead of the curve for the industry. In all, a used luxury car represents a great deal if you can find the right fit for your needs and lifestyle. 

There are a lot of options in used luxury cars, so to narrow it down, we looked only at the most reliable luxury and premium cars that are less than four years old, priced under $30,000 and with with 40,000 or fewer miles. Here are 14 of the best used luxury cars under $30,000.
