Jaguar XF Saloon

Alongside effortless performance, refined luxury and bags of character, this handsome executive saloon car exudes just a hint of sporty edginess. The XF’s roomy interior can comfortably accommodate four to five adults thanks to plenty of head and legroom available to back seat passengers. Add in the soft suspension and it’s easy to see why the XF is a fantastic all-rounder and the ideal choice for long-distance drivers.

BMW 5 Series Saloon

Searching for an executive vehicle that offers exceptional performance no matter whether you’re a city slicker, motorway driver or country cruiser? Look no further than the BMW 5 Series saloon. The vehicle’s elegant exterior appearance is perfectly complemented by bags of interior technology, a comfortable drive and more than ample room in the back for rear passengers to make themselves at home.

Citroen C3 Hatchback

Another budget-friendly choice, this hatchback has been designed with practicality in mind. It’s equipped with the Citroen Advanced Comfort system, which translates to good visibility, ease of control, comfortable seating and reasonably soft suspension considering the price. Sure, it’s not exactly the biggest car on our list but there’s ample space in the back to comfortably accommodate two adults. With five doors, there’s no need to climb into the rear cabin and fitting children’s car seats to the two ISOFIX points should be quick and simple.

Volvo S90 Saloon

With its sleek and refined appearance, this super saloon focuses more on passenger experience and less on the sporty features offered by some of its counterparts. But fear not - that doesn’t mean it lacks power as each of the hybrid, petrol and diesel options boast smooth, fuss-free performance. The S90’s soft leather seats offer passengers unparalleled comfort and support, with heated outer rear seats available as an optional extra.

Mazda 3 Saloon

No doubt about it, the all-new Mazda 3 is a beautiful car - but it’s not just attractive on the outside, it looks great on the inside as well. Reliable, spacious and comfortable, this is definitely a family-friendly motor. However, taller rear-seat passengers might not find this quite as comfortable as some of the other options, such as the Skoda Scala. Choose a top-end trim to enjoy adjustable lumbar support in the front seats.
