What alternatives should I consider to a used Jaguar XJ saloon?

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is almost the go-to luxury car, whether bought new or used. It offers excellent performance, sharp handling, a good ride and almost unequalled refinement. The quality is top drawer, too, and used prices are low enough to make this a truly tempting proposition if you’re in the market for such a car. The diesel-engined versions are relatively economical, too.

The Audi A8 is even quieter than the S-Class and if anything rides more comfortably. It also has a high-quality interior. However, it doesn’t handle as well as the Merc or the Jag, and its infotainment system isn’t as good as the German car’s. There are comparatively few of the latest model on the used market, but there are still savings to be made on the price of a new car.
