How suitable is an executive car for me?

Executive cars have long been a common sight on British roads, as they offer a level of luxury that few can match. Whilst they tend to be more expensive to buy than the likes of a hatchback or some SUVs, executive cars tick a wide range of boxes, making them decent all-rounders and some of the most comfortable cars available.

Particularly popular amongst business users and families, executive cars usually offer a well-sized boot, plenty of advanced tech, and a spacious cabin to ensure they're ready for a variety of tasks.

The executive car market has long been dominated by German models such as the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4, and Mercedes-Benz C-Class due to their upmarket quality and prestige badge. There's plenty of other excellent executive cars to choose from, though, including the Škoda Octavia, Vauxhall Insignia, and Lexus IS.
