Cadillac CTS

It may have had a starring role in The Matrix film, but the Cadillac’s CTS’s performance is less than enthralling away from the silver screen. The CTS range is only being offered with thirsty, high emissions petrol engines where most of the competition offers fine turbodiesels. Company drivers will [...]

BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo

530d - Back in the old days, before carmakers started devoting their energies to creating new niches to tempt buyers into spending their cash, you had a simple choice: if you wanted a family car, you either bought a saloon or an estate, if you wanted a bit more space. The 4x4 muddied the waters slightly, b [...]

Chrysler 300C

3.0 CRD V6 Executive - Despite being built in Toronto under Italian ownership, the gargantuan Chrysler 300C couldn’t look more American. An exhilarating and muscular 3-litre engine is let down by awkward handling and below-par build quality.

Volvo V40

D4 SE Nav - The revival of the V40 name has landed Volvo with officially the safest car on the market. Taking its lead from the Ford Focus, this practical hatchback will please many but the claustrophobic cabin won’t.

Lexus GS

Audi A6 Saloon

2.0 TDI - The 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine in the Audi A6 is the core model of this executive range and accounts for around 75% of all sales in the UK.

2.2D 190 autos - There is no missing the new Jaguar XF on the road. It has an all-new front end with slimline headlights incorporating distinctive LED lighting strips.

Saab 9-5 Saloon

2010 - The new Saab 9-5 almost became a trivia question, along the lines of ‘Which production car was fully developed and shown, but never actually built?’. Because when General Motors cut it Swedish subsidiary loose at the end of 2009, the company’s future looked bleak, until the Dutch boutique sports car [...]

BMW 5-Series Saloon

530d and 535i - BMW’s 5 Series could quite justifiably be described as a business tool for successful executives. Large numbers are sold as company cars, their existence pointing to the status of the driver. And because of their use for business purposes, the vast majority of 5s are powered by diesel engines. The 5 [...]

Citroen C6

3.0 HDI Exclusive - The C6 is a Parisian boutique hotel room on wheels; the bulb in that vintage bedside lamp may keep blowing but those curtains will still look amazing.

Volvo S80

DRIVe - The big attraction with the S80 in DRIVe form is its superb economy and emissions. You may have to trade some performance when picking the 1.6-litre turbodiesel engine, but the reward for company drivers comes in the form of a much reduced benefit in kind payment to the tax man.

Chrysler 300C

3.0 V6 CRD - The 300C has proved a big success for Chrysler since first going on sale in 2005. Its striking good looks and attractive pricing made it a tempting proposition for execs wanting an imposing luxury car without having to re-mortgage. Then, in early ’08, some wise revisions made it even more tempting.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class Saloon

Mercedes-Benz included 2,000 technical changes in developing the current E-Class, many of them made in an attempt to win over those customers who had been disillusioned by the reputation it had gained for unreliability since the last overhaul in 2002. These developments have done the job, though, of [...]

BMW 5-Series Saloon

2010 - The all-new BMW 5-Series has a lot to live up to after the runaway success of its predecessors.
