“Among the top 10 most popular vehicles in America’s wealthiest neighborhoods, half are non-luxury vehicles,” TrueCar said in a statement. “And in a demographic where a car budget doesn’t seem to be much of a concern, all vehicles are priced less than $50,000 – with the exception of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the BMW X5.”
“Luxury brands like BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Lexus are the top choice for the well-off, but with wealth often comes freedom of choice.
