Executive Car of the Year - BMW 3 Series
Audi A4 LT

Audi's executive saloon is a former What Car? Car of the Year. You can choose from a strong range of petrol and diesel engines, with our favourite 2.0-litre diesel option combining punchy performance with good fuel economy. The A4's interior is at the top of this class for quality, too.

Skoda Superb iV

The Skoda Superb is comfortable, well equipped, great value for money and one of the roomiest cars in its class. It's a car that truly lives up to its name, then, and we like Skoda's extra practical touches, such as the umbrellas hidden inside the front doors.

Audi Q7 2021 front cornering

Audi's luxury SUV is relaxing to drive, comfortable to sit in and pleasantly efficient to run, while its interior is plush enough to shame most luxury saloons. As if all that weren't enough, the Q7 is extremely practical, offering loads of space for families and their luggage.

Our reigning Luxury SUV of the Year is great to drive and has a classy, well-designed interior that's crammed full of the latest technology. The plug-in hybrid version can officially travel for more than 50 miles without using a drop of fuel, too.

BMW X7 2021 front

The BMW X7 represents everything a luxury SUV should be – big, spacious and practical enough for any occasion. It's super quiet and comfortable, and has an outstanding infotainment system inside. There are cheaper alternatives, of course, but few are as well-rounded as BMW's largest SUV.
