Best used executive cars for less than £25,000

Fancy buying a smart and stylish executive car for just £25,000? Take a look at our top 10 round up of the best used buys...

New Audi A5 Sportback vs BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe

4. Audi A5 Sportback

Another executive top 10, another Audi. By Sportback, Audi means a blending of coupé style with saloon practicality, and you get a pair of extra doors and a useful hatchback rear tailgate over the regular A5 coupé. It’s lower, wider and shorter than the contemporary A4 saloon on which it’s based, so some rear head room has been sacrificed inside on the altar of design, but it drives extremely well and its interior is a work of art. It’s refined, too, especially the petrol-engined version we’ve found, and wonderfully classy.

We found: 2019 Audi A5 Sportback 35 TDI S Line, 15,093 miles, £24,999

3. Skoda Superb

Not a badge snob, I hope? Good, because there are no two ways about it: if what you require from an executive car is a large interior and a massive boot, the Skoda Superb is the perfect car for you. No other car in its class can match the Superb for space, and if that was your sole criteria when choosing a car, then the stylish Superb has won the vote before it turns a wheel. But it’s also beautifully made, has loads of standard kit, is great to drive and has a comfortable ride. As with all VW Group products in this class, there’s a range of high-performing and efficient engines and a good choice of trim levels, all handsomely equipped. Our £25k budget buys you a car so new you can almost smell the fresh paint.

We found: 2019 Skoda Superb 2.0 TDI SE L Executive, 3679 miles, £20,995

2. BMW 3 Series

BMW 3 Series

It might seem like BMW has every niche covered in the motoring world these days, but if there's just one car that's come to define the German firm's products it must be the 3 Series saloon. When it was originally launched, way back in 1975, it was a rather humble two-door car, but it's achieved near iconic status over the last few decades as a four-door executive. This sixth-generation version of the ever-popular 3  is the most spacious to date, offering enough legroom and headroom in the back for a couple of adults to travel in comfort. Better still, all this in a car that is genuinely fun to drive, very well built and subtly stylish. Prices for this generation are also temptingly low because an all-new (and very good) seventh-generation version has superseded it.

We found: 2019 BMW 320d M Sport Shadow Edition, 8490 miles, £21,900
