BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe

Executive and luxury cars

BMW 8 Series Gran Coupé

On sale October

BMW’s new Porsche Panamera-rivalling four-door will sit at the top of the 8 Series range, above the two-door coupé and convertible models, with its stretched body providing more space for rear passengers while being just as fast, luxurious and driver-focused.

Mercedes CLA Shooting Brake

Mercedes CLA Shooting Brake rear

On sale Autumn

Closely related to the A-Class, this sleek estate will initially be offered with a 219bhp 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine, with more options to come later. It's longer than its predecessor, with a wider, deeper boot of 505 litres.

Skoda Superb

2019 Skoda Superb f 3/4

On sale Late 2019

The Superb is already one of our favourite executive cars, because it's comfortable and hugely spacious. However, Skoda isn't resting on its laurels, and has instead given it tweaked styling, a frugal new diesel engine and upgraded tech, including cruise control that can alter your speed automatically by reading road signs.

Volkswagen Passat

2019 Volkswagen Passat Estate GTE front

On sale Autumn

Like the Superb, the Passat has been given a midlife update, including a new version of the plug-in hybrid Passat GTE variant which has a bigger battery and 30% greater zero-emission range. There's also a new touchscreen infotainment system across the range and improved standard equipment.
