Choosing A Saloon Car

The saloon car has become increasingly popular in recent years, being able to meet the needs of both modern family life and a desire for impressive performance. Here, we review some of the best saloon cars available in the modern market…


Mercedes C-Class Saloon

Perhaps more about elegant, sophisticated design than it is about out-and-out performance, the Mercedes Benz C-Class Saloon is a great choice for the fashion conscious. With a plush interior, comfortable seating and a modern dashboard, this is a car that will get you from A to B in style. If your budget allows and you are wanting a car that offers more performance power but equally impressive (if not more) elegance in terms of design, the consider an upgrade to the might E-Class.


BMW 5 Series Saloon

If an all-round saloon is what you’re after, you won’t get more bang for your buck than the 5 Series. A refined and elegant design is complemented by performance capabilities that will please even the most ardent of motorists. The entry-level 520d is the preferred choice and even that boasts a 2.0 litre diesel engine, capable of 0-62mph in 7.5 seconds. What’s even more impressive and certain to appeal to budget-conscious families is that even with this engine, the 5 series achieves over 60mpg. With a design that looks both sporty and classy and plenty of storage space, this is quite simply a perfect family car.


Volkswagen Passat Saloon

If you’re after a great saloon but are willing to compromise on certain design elements to get a fantastically performing car (for a more affordable price tag than its nearest rivals), then you should definitely consider the Passat. It may not be a particularly outlandish or exciting car, with minimal detail in terms of interior design or a sporty look, but it does offer a high level of practicality, especially with the large boots. If speed is your thing, there is also a great range of engines to choose from to help find a model that you are proud to call your own.
