Best executive cars 2022
A good executive car need to be comfortable, classy and well equipped, yet also cheap to run. So, which models hit all their targets, and which should be avoided?...
Executive saloons need to combine two opposing qualities: luxury and affordability. The best have efficient engines that make them cheap to run as company cars, or even utilise electric power. Yet they also have plush interiors and enough soundproofing to keep them super-quiet on the motorway.
Comfort and driver enjoyment are also important. Plus, they should have a user-friendly dashboard layout and come equipped with the latest infotainment and safety technology.
