Used Luxury Car Deals

As crossover SUVs gain in popularity, used sedans have become something of a bargain. Shoppers can find some particularly compelling deals on luxury sedans, a number of which have dropped significantly in resale value.

There’s nothing inherently wrong with sedans. The most popular automotive body type of all time, the humble sedan has for years served the American buying public with a sort of quiet reserve and dignity. Residing in the space between the utilitarian station wagon and the flashy, indulgent coupe, the sedan has, for decades, outsold all other passenger-vehicle types.

Like many auto journalists, the editors of Consumer Guide Automotive attend manufacturer-hosted press events to get our first look at the newest vehicles hitting the market—that’s how we produce most of our First Spin test-drive reviews. However, we also attend “smorgasbord-style” press events that allow us brief access to a broad variety of new vehicles from a host of manufacturers, for quick-take impressions and helpful back-to-back comparison drives.

2018 Mecum Chicago Auction

Collector-car auctions sell plenty of high-dollar vehicles, but they also offer more-accessible classics. This 1963 Buick Riviera sold for less than the cost of the average 2018 Buick Encore subcompact crossover.

Every October, the Mecum Auctions road show rolls into Chicagoland for a weekend-long event that takes over the Schaumburg Convention Center in Schaumburg, Illinois. Like any of the major-league televised auctions, the 2018 Mecum Chicago shindig had its share of big-ticket featured lots. A 1979 Porsche 930 Turbo originally owned by legendary Chicago Bears running back Walter Payton was the star of this year’s show—it sold for $324,500, topping the list of results for the event.
