Best executive cars of 2024

Despite the rise of the SUV, executive cars remain hugely desirable vehicles. Offering much of the opulence and practicality luxury cars provide but with a more affordable price tag, and often better handling dynamics, an executive car should offer good passenger space, impressive technology, a great driving experience and a cachet lesser cars can't quite match.

Advice about executive cars

Executive cars FAQs

The term 'executive car' feels somewhat dated in this day and age, but this class of car was once the preserve of people who had reached the executive level of a company, and had achieved the status and income (or the necessary position on the company-car list) to be eligible for this type of car. Today, an executive car sits one rung below a luxury car like the Mercedes S-Class, and one rung above compact executive cars like the BMW 3 Series.

Yes, in essence. Executive cars may not offer quite the same amount of space and comfort as luxury cars, but they make a pretty good fist of providing a properly comfortable and refined driving experience, while their low centre of gravity tends to mean they handle better than their SUV counterparts.
