The Mercedes E-Class is very well equipped and available with a great range of engines, from efficient diesels, to tax-friendly plug-in hybrids and punchy petrols. It's pretty quiet and comfortable on the motorway, too, but the ride could be better around town and, while the boot is big, the rear passenger compartment isn't, relative to its rivals. Overall, the BMW 5 Series is a better car to drive, has a better infotainment system and is better built inside.

This is a crazily fast performance car, which you can see just by looking at the numbers. The 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine thunders out 604bhp and thanks to four-wheel drive can hurl you from 0-62mph in 3.4sec officially – when we tested the estate it hit 0-60mph in 3.3sec, which was way quicker than the Audi RS6. Needless to say, it feels epic to drive and makes an amazing noise when you give it a boot-full. We love it all – well, apart from the 20mpg average fuel economy.
