Wealthy Wheels: Top 10 List

The wealthy are an odd lot. Some like to wear their success proudly, while others are more reserved, perhaps even modest. This is the case when it comes to wardrobes, vacations, and even the cars they drive.

TrueCar has looked into what cars the rich drive by surveying the wealthiest zip codes in the nation and found a few surprises. In fact, only two of the ten cars on the list carry a starting retail cost of more than $50,000.

Top 10 Cars of The Rich

The cars that the rich drive are:

  1. Honda CR-V with a suggested retail price of $29,575
  2. Toyota Camry, $25,535
  3. BMW X5, $58,595
  4. Honda Accord, $23,070
  5. Volkswagen Jetta, $26,085
  6. Toyota Prius, $30,565
  7. Lexus RX, $39,950
  8. Mercedes-Benz C-Class, $36,095
  9. BMW 328i, $35,795
  10. Mercedes-Benz E-Class, $51,365

A bit befuddling, no doubt.  You would expect this list to be dominated by cars that cost  $50K+, right?  These are pretty small car loans or cash purchases for the rich, you’d think.  But then again, maybe they simply have the wisdom to live below their means.
