Saloon cars are extremely popular in the UK because they are adaptable between great family cars and respectable executive vehicles for business use. These cars are designed for sharp looks, speed and precision and handling as well as delivering great comfort, whilst all the while being able to drive up to five people around. In no particular order, these are the best five saloons available on car finance.
If you are looking for a well-built, standard saloon, then the Volkswagen Passat is its class dominator, beating the Ford Mondeo and Vauxhall Insignia. The price varies depending on engine and trim choice, but it starts from £22,000 with the most expensive model coming out at £36,240.
Vaolkswagen, depending upon your chosen model, has given the Passat between 120-240 bhp which means that the Passat can accelerate from 0-60 between 10.8-6.1 seconds. To the top speed of the models can go up to 149 MPH. The Passat is only available with a diesel engine, rather than a petrol engine that many of its rivals have. This allows it to have better fuel efficiency, saving on running costs.
When it comes to ride quality and driving experience, the Passat delivers well. Engine, wind and road noise is kept at a minimum, meaning you aren’t simply sat in a torrent of noise. The ride itself is very comfortable, making both short and long journeys extremely enjoyable.
If you are looking for the king of big, luxury saloons, then the S-Class is the one to look at. It has the speed, the control, the ride quality and the interior, while still not forgetting the looks. This car is in many ways a great all-round luxury executive saloon.
When it comes to the interior, you get everything that is expected. Passengers in the rear get comfortable amounts of space and the rear seats recline to almost 45 degrees. In the front, the driver is able to fully adjust his seating position allowing them to create their perfect driving position. It also feels very refined and comfortable inside, perfect whether you are driving or are being driven.
As with all saloons, there are a variation of engine to choose from that deliver different things and the S-Class is no different. The most popular choice is the S350 Bluetec diesel because of how it reduces the running costs of the car, while the S300 diesel hybrid is slowly becoming more popular because it also offers lower tax rates. If you are looking for a fast Mercedes saloon, then the S63 AMG with its 577 bhp is the best one to choose.
Let’s talk about the best compact executive car and the car that many deem to be the greatest saloon of all. The BMW 3-Series offers its owners the best all-round saloon car on the market, facing off opposition from its main rivals, the Mercedes C-Class & Audi A4.
The cheapest 3-Series offers 136 bhp that helps the car accelerate from 0-60 in 8.9 seconds and has a top speed of 130MPH. It also delivers a combined fuel economy of 47.9 mpg. However, if you are looking for a faster model, then the more expensive, 335d xDrive Luxury 3-Series offers 313 bhp that develops 135 MPH and can sprint from 0-60 in 4.8 seconds.
Interior-wise, the BMW offers great, high quality plastics and materials, which feels well put together and brilliantly designed. The dashboard is very simple and minimalist, making it easy to use for everyone. Whilst not fully adjustable, the drivers position is still near perfect for most drivers. For rear-seat passengers, there is more head and legroom for them, making it even comfier. For the compact, luxury saloon, there is no better choice than the BMW 3-Series.
If you are looking at finance cars are available on a variety of different options. Saloons are easy to afford on car finance, so if you are looking for a great saloon, whether it is cheap saloon or a big luxury saloon, there are finance options on all these cars.
