Best (and worst) used luxury cars for £25,000

Luxury cars need to combine a sumptuous interior with a cosseting ride. Here we count down the top 10 for £25k – and reveal the one to avoid...

Mercedes S-Class

1. Mercedes-Benz S-Class

Even in a class full of such serious contenders, the S-Class stands out. It is, of course, almost the go-to choice in this category when new, and the same values translate to the car used. It offers an outstanding level of quality, refinement and driver appeal, and, in our chosen spec S350 diesel form, even has reasonable running costs. It’s comfortable, too, with a cosseting ride, and the interior is a classy delight. There’s plenty of tech on board, as you'd expect, but it’s all easy to access and use. That you can have all this quality in a car not much more than three years old with a below average mileage for such a modest price even makes it a bit of a luxury car bargain.

We found: 2016 S350d  SE Line L, 35,000 miles, £24,995

Infiniti Q70

The Q70 is large, has a smart interior and is well built. £25,000 would buy you an immaculate 2018 car with an 18 registration plate and only 4000 miles on the clock. We wouldn’t bother, though.
