BMW 5 Series

Winner of Best Large Executive

BMW 5 Series

The 5 Series has long been a benchmark in its class. It has such a wide array of abilities including space, performance and comfort. The entry levels start at a surprisingly affordable price point, and from there, you can scale up the options list as needed.

With such a broad range of powertrains available, the 5 Series can cater to such a wide range of the market. Inclusion of Plug-in Hybrid models help with efficiency, and if you want the performance then you’re well catered for in the M5, or even the better value M550i.

The 5 Series always remains an excellent choice, leading juror Karl Connolly to declare that ‘the 5 Series is due to be updated in 2023 and yet the latest version remains fresh, with cutting edge tech, low running costs for business users and the best performance and drive on the market. Whether it is saloon or touring, plug-in-hybrid or diesel, the 5 Series sets the large executive standard.’

Runners Up

Mercedes-Benz - E Class

Mercedes-Benz E-Class

The E-class brings so much of the comfort and futuristic tech of its bigger sibling, the S-Class, but delivers it with a much more palatable price tag. With such a varied list of powertrains and bodystyles, the E-Class ticks so many of the boxes. It has a gigantic boot, plush interior and led juror Declan Colley to declare that it is ‘simply a class above the rest’.


Mercedes-Benz - EQS

Mercedes-Benz EQS

Mercedes is a byword in refinement. With the addition of the EQE’s all electric powertrain, that refinement is brought to a new level. The EQE 350+ will comfortably deliver 500km of range, and if you want a bit of fun then you can go for the AMG 53 4MATIC that delivers over 600hp. Either way, you’re ferried around in what juror Mark Noble calls ‘proof that luxury and EV can work well together’.
