What we are looking for

  • Luxury car buyers are used to the best of everything, so these models need to have sumptuous interiors, high-tech infotainment systems and a generous standard specification.
  • Comfort is also a key consideration. To win this category, these cars must absorb the UK’s wornout roads and let you travel at motorway speeds in nearsilence. What’s more, they should give their occupants lots of space and have seats that remain supportive on the longest of drives.
  • Running costs are still important; no one likes to throw money away. Besides, many luxury saloons are run as company cars, so low CO2 emissions to keep tax bills down are welcome.
