Dear What Car?,

After driving executive saloons for most of my working life, I recently retired and received a generous leaving package. I would now like to buy my own luxury car, but I don't want it to be too big. I'm used to saloons, so I'd like to stick with them, and I'd like an automatic diesel car, because I still plan on covering lots of motorway miles in retirement. Badge appeal would be a bonus!

I have around £35,000 to spend; what would you suggest?


The brief

  • Luxury saloon
  • Diesel engine
  • Automatic gearbox
  • Around £35,000
