The Best Looking Cars Under $35,000

By on July 16, 2015

#2: Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class

Mercedes-Benz is another company whose name you likely rarely associate with cars under $35,000. However, the CLA-Class represents Mercedes-Benz’s foray into the more affordable market, as the car was first launched in 2014 with the explicit intent of attracting a demographic that typically could not afford to purchase a Mercedes.

And while you don’t associate Mercedes-Benz with affordability, odds are that you do associate Mercedes-Benz with luxury, style, and class. The 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class is no exception – with a gorgeous exterior design, iconic Mercedes grille, and spacious, refined interior, it is not hard to fall in love with this great looking vehicle. And after you do fall in love, you’ll love it even more when you find out that this classy car costs only $31,500.

In addition to its looks, the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class comes with great fuel economy and many touches of luxury usually reserved for more expensive vehicles, such as auto-sensing wiper blades, leather interiors, keyless ignition, bluetooth technology, and more. In other words, you get most of the features of a mega-expensive car, all in a $31,000 package. And that package just happens to look fantastic and sexy as well.


  • MSRP: $31,500
  • Fuel Economy: 26 mpg city / 38 mpg highway
  • Engine: 4-cylinder, 2.0 liter


#1: BMW 2-Series


  • MSRP: $32,100
  • Fuel Economy: 23 mpg city / 36 mpg highway
  • Engine: 4-cylinder, 2.0 liter

Our pick for the best looking luxury car under $35,000 is the stylish, sexy 2015 BMW 2-Series. Introduced in 2014, much like the Mercedes CLA-Class, the 2-Series is BMW’s representation of affordable luxury. And much like the CLA-Class, this car is also gorgeous and jaw-dropping in every way.

The exterior of the 2-series is aerodynamic and sharp, with a fancy grille and cutting-edge headlights coming standard. On the inside, drivers are treated to the class one might expect from BMW, with luxury, high-end leather and wood finishes, and in the coupe iteration of the car, extra room for both drivers and passengers to feel as comfortable as possible.

Naturally, this car also has fantastic performance figures, getting solid MPGs and driving quite quickly for a car with this price range and a smaller engine. But, as you expect, the main selling point here is the undeniable beauty of the 2015 BMW 2-Series, which makes it our #1 pick for the best looking car under $35,000 that you can find today.
