Why buy it: The Acura RL was Honda's flagship model and is the most expensive car on our list. When new, the RL retailed for around $50,000, but used examples can be found for far less. As Honda's flagship, the company unloaded its technological goody bag for the RL.
Top of the line models come with onboard navigation, a premium sound system, active noise cancellation, a titanium drive-shaft, handcrafted maple wood accents, and a slew of modern safety features.
The Rl's advanced "super handling" all-wheel-drive system and powerful 300 horsepower V-6 gives the car a truly premium driving experience.
