20: Mercedes-Benz 500E
How does a driver experience the thrill of driving a Mercedes-Benz on a budget? Obviously, they go for the used models which are much more affordable to get. The 500E is one such car. It’s a legendary model sold in the 1990s and its performance is renowned. This was a car from the era where Mercedes models were over-engineered to perfection. As with most used luxury cars, the resale value for the 500E is affordable, unless you are looking at an ultra-low mileage example (via Motor Trend).
The 500E was popular because of the short wheelbase and excellent handling characteristics. When it came to engineering during this era, Mercedes was unmatched in terms of quality. Few used cars provide the same thrill behind the wheel as the 500E, which is why the car has maintained its popularity with enthusiasts.
