The Jaguar XF finished runner-up in this category last year, but its slightly steeper depreciation than last year's winner, the Audi A6, had the judges agreeing the XF was the best value now.

It's a worthy winner because the XF feels and drives like a proper executive should. It has nicely weighted steering, good body control and the 2.7-litre V6 diesel is strong. The engine is smooth, too, which makes the Jaguar a fine motorway cruiser as well.

At those higher speeds there's little noise in the cabin, which seats four in comfort. The Luxury trim is entry-level, but its kit list includes sat-nav, climate control, electric leather seats and parking sensors.
