4. BMW 7 Series

The BMW 7 Series has always lived somewhat in the shadow of the smaller, more interesting to drive BMW 5 Series, but for its size, the 7 Series is still enjoyable on a twisting road. It represents extraordinarily good value these days, too – it’s well equipped and most examples had plenty of options boxes ticked, while the most popular engine, a 3.0-litre diesel, is smooth and punchy. The only downside is a ride that’s firmer than you might like.

We found: 2013 730d SE, 35,000 miles, Β£21,000

3. Audi A6

If you don’t need the last word in driving excitement, the Audi A6 excels in almost every other area. Its fantastically classy cabin is an oasis of calm, aided by beautifully damped wind and road noise and a range of engines that’s powerful and quiet yet also efficient. Smart looks mean it has a great image, too, and it comes with plenty of kit, making it a compelling used buy.

We found: 2014 A6 2.0 TDI Ultra SE, 31,500 miles, Β£15,988

2. Mercedes-Benz S-Class

Put simply, the Mercedes S-Class is one of the best luxury cars out there. It isn’t cheap, but we think it’s probably worth the premium you’ll pay over rivals, simply for the exceptionally opulent interior, fabulous ride and incredible sense of isolation it gives you. There’s plenty of equipment as standard, of course, plus most examples will have had a few options boxes ticked too, and the engines are smooth, powerful and efficient.

We found: 2014 S350 CDI Bluetec SE Line, 36,000 miles, Β£31,950
