With the growing segment of compact crossover luxury cars like the Mercedes GLA, Audi Q3, Lexus NX and the upcoming launch of Infiniti’s QX30, I’ve been thinking about what the best current entry level luxury car is. Help me out.

I understand why someone would want a lifted hatchback, as long as it’s called a luxury crossover. I just got back from driving Infiniti’s QX30, set to go on sale in a few months. While you’ll hear all about it next week sometime, I’m curious as to what others think is currently the best cheap, entry level “luxury” vehicle.

The upcoming QX30 will likely hover in the $30k range, so let’s keep it around there.
