Sure they’re great Grand Tourers but cost a minimum of $100K new. So my question is what is the best affordable Grand Tourer today? (say roughly limit <$50K new, or<$30K used). They’re typically front-engine, rear-wheel-drive two-door coupé with either a two-seat or a 2+2 arrangement but let’s open up the options a little so include sedans as well.

My vote- Lexus Rc350

Quiet, smooth good V6, comfortable and refined, you can do multiple cross country trips and nothing will fail. Shortcomings will be the touchpad infotainment system, small truck 10 Cuft. Sportier faster alternatives are available, obviously.
