What alternatives should I consider to a used Mercedes-Benz E-Class saloon?

The BMW 5 Series is wonderfully plush and classy inside and drives better than anything else in this class. It corners with composure and rides comfortably and is a great used buy.

The Jaguar XF strikes a superb balance between ride and handling, and is great fun to drive. It’s well equipped, too, and comfortable. It’s a little noisier than rivals and not as spacious, but it’s good value on the forecourts.
