The Car Regency, hence, introduces 7 cheapest luxury cars that you can purchase in Singapore. As a bonus, these luxury cars on the list are first-hand vehicles.

#2: Mercedes-Benz E Class
The all-time favourite Mercedes-Benz E Class serves as a benchmark for many automakers. Since its introduction, this model has been a favourite among “towkays” and top business executives.
Its interior impresses many, intertwining classy aesthetic and practicality with its dashboard instruments being intuitive in its operation. It offers a comfortable ride and generous space for passengers. Expansive boot space allows room for big luggage when going on holiday. A strong 1,991cc turbocharged engine performs well on the road at a top speed of 230km/h and a very good 80-120 km/h overtake factor for a four-cylinder base model.
The cheapest model of the Mercedes-Benz E Class available is the Parallel Imported E200 SE, at a price of S$193,000.
#3: BMW 216i Sport
BMW makes history with the introduction of an MPV for young families looking for the prestige of a luxury marque with the practicality of a roomier cabin, allowing for a good amount of head, shoulder, and legroom. Its 468 litres of boot space is wide enough to store several bags of groceries.
The BMW 216i has a 1.5-litre turbocharged engine that produces 136 bhp and a torque of 220 Nm. While that may not sound powerful enough, you have the flexibility to drive in different modes. Sports mode, for instance, gives your car the extra push while ECO PRO mode helps you to reduce fuel consumption and ensures that the accelerator pedal, transmission parameters and heating/climate control strategy are all intelligently adapted.
