What Are the Greatest Saloons on the Market Today?

June 05, 2015 / by / 0 Comment

They’re not cheap, but we love them anyway. Saloons offer style and class that you don’t get in other types of car. And here are the best on the market today.

Audi A6

Before the A6 was released, Audi had always had trouble breaking through in the luxury saloon market. That’s all changed though; the A6 is more than capable of competing with Mercedes and BMW. The biggest thing the A6 has going for it is its ability to take on different challenges and fit the needs of pretty much everyone!

It’s a great car for professionals but it’s just as good at getting the kids to school and going on a family holiday. The latest design is even better than the original model too. The lights and wheels have both seen big upgrades, which is a relief as these were some of the weaker points on the original A6.

Mercedes-Benz E Class

The Mercedes-Benz E Class is the kind of car that’s not interested in speed and sportiness. Instead, the car is focused on producing a calm, relaxed and assured driving experience for the driver. It’s all about ease and comfort with the E Class, some people see it as a rival of the BMW 5 Series. But this is a different kind of car entirely.

Mercedes haven’t made the same kind of car that BMW did with the 5 Series. It’s always tempting to compare Mercedes and BMW cars because of the rivalry between the manufacturers, but it’s just not applicable here. And don’t be put off by the price; you can find second-hand models from places like Sandles Car Supermarket for quite low prices. If safety, smooth driving and total comfort is what you want, the E Class is the car for you.

Lexus IS

Lexus has long been a manufacturer known for its refinement and class when it comes to the finer details of car making, and nothing changed with the IS. You get exactly what you’d expect, and a whole lot more too. With the latest model, Lexus did what they do best but also improved the car’s steering and suspension a lot too.

One of the reasons that the IS is proving so popular in the saloon market is that it’s very efficient and has low CO2 emissions. There are not too many cars in this area of the market that you can say that about. It’s doing well with everyone who doesn’t want to pay the high fuel costs and emissions of better-known saloons.

Maserati Ghibli

Just being able to say you drive a Maserati will be enough to persuade a lot of people that the Maserati Ghibli is the car for them. But don’t worry, there are plenty of other great reasons to splash out on this luxury saloon. For a start, it looks incredible! You won’t find many more sporty and stylish saloons on the market.

The quality of the design is present throughout the car. So, it looks and feels as good on the inside as it does on the outside. And the V8 engine makes it a lot of fun to drive too. The steering hydraulic rather than electrical and you can really feel the difference in precision this makes.

For my money, these 4 cars are the greatest saloons on the market today. They offer different specialities and driving experiences, but each is superb in its own way.
