Luxury car buyers do get behind the wheel like everyone else - but uniquely, they’ll probably spend just as much time in the back as the front. Either way, you’ll be after sumptuous materials, ride comfort that can soak up the worst of the UK’s pockmarked roads and supreme refinement that allows you to travel at speed and in near-silence.
Arguably the best all-round luxury car is the Range Rover, now more capable than ever and thanks to relatively efficient engines, capable of travelling for hundreds of miles between fuel stops. You sit high up, looking down on other motorists, too.
However, if you’re after a more traditional saloon then the Mercedes S-Class is impossible to overlook. It’s packed with technology, beautifully finished inside and not as expensive to run as you might think. It’s our favourite.
