Best and worst executive cars 2019
The executive car class is one of the most hotly contested, with some of the most demanding customers. But which models are hitting all their targets and which are falling short?...
1. BMW 3 Series
For many, the 3 Series remains the de facto executive car, and it's easy to see why. The latest version is the best-steering BMW of recent times and matches this with stellar body control and plenty of grip, yet it still manages to serve up a comfortable ride and relaxing refinement. Add to all that a user-friendly infotainment system, plenty of space front and rear and a superb driving position, and it's the undoubted class leader.
Our pick: 320d Sport auto
The executive cars to avoid
The hybrid version of the Q50 is refined and sporty, but truthfully there's very little reason to buy one. By the high class standards measured here, it's just not up to scratch. What's more, Infiniti is leaving Europe next year.
Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport
The Insignia Grand Sport isn't a bad car, but in a market with such strong competition, it's let down in too many areas to be listed among the best.
