7. Skoda Superb

If space is your primary concern in your executive car, look no further – you need a Skoda Superb. It’s vast inside, with huge amounts of room for all five passengers and a vast boot. It’s well equipped and feels built to last, too, with a nicely finished interior. It’s also stable and quiet on the motorway, and while the ride is a little firm, the payoff is that it’s surprisingly nimble in corners – even if numb steering means it isn’t all that involving to drive.

6. Ford Mondeo

It might have a humdrum image, but driving a Ford Mondeo is anything but. It’s a great car to drive, with involving, responsive handling, communicative steering and plenty of grip. But it’s also remarkably comfortable, and endowed with a spacious interior and a vast boot with a practical hatchback opening. Granted, you’ll have to live with a cheap-feeling dashboard – but that’s a small price to pay for the plethora of talents the Mondeo offers.

5. Mercedes C-Class

In terms of image, it doesn’t get much better than Mercedes. And the C-Class is no exception, with smart, upmarket looks and the solid build quality you’d expect to find in a Merc. The C-Class is a comfortable car, too, and you get a broad range of engines which includes efficient, if rather noisy, diesel options. So what if it isn’t as much fun to drive as some of the other cars here? The C-Class is as classy as its name suggests.
