Executive cars are relied on by company car drivers to transport them around the country to meetings and events. As well as a comfortable interior with all the latest in-car tech, they need to be robust, and that's where our our 2017 Reliability Survey comes in.

We asked more than 14,200 people to tell us about any faults their cars had suffered during the past 12 months. We asked how long the problem kept the car off the road and how much they'd had to pay to get it fixed.

Those that had the least problems and were cheapest to fix gained the top ratings, and those that languished in workshops for days on end and racked up expensive repair bills were given the lowest ratings.

Here's our round-up of the best and worst performers in the executive car class.
