DoneDeal Top 5 Executive Saloons

Ok, so you need an executive saloon car for mile munching across Ireland but there are many choices on DoneDeal and you are not sure what will best suits your needs? Let us help! First of all let’s delve a little deeper to make sure you are buying the right car. An executive saloon car is a type of luxury vehicle that typically caters to business professionals and individuals who seek a combination of comfort, performance, and advanced features. These cars are designed to provide a premium driving experience with an emphasis on refined interiors, smooth drive, and cutting-edge technology. For argument sake lets take a budget of €50,000 and take ten of the best currently for sale on DoneDeal.

BMW 5 Series

Known for its blend of luxury, performance, and technology the BMW 5 Series is one of Ireland’s favourite executive saloon cars. Your budget of €50k is going to buy you a 2022 model with between 40 to 70,000 kilometres. This is low mileage for a 5 Series and you can pick between the 2.0 litre petrol plug in hybrid, or the smooth 2.0 diesel. Model variants include the SE with nice chrome detailing, M Sport with the stylish kit and larger wheels and we even found an all wheel XDrive variant within this price range. Click the link below for the full list.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class

A symbol of luxury and sophistication, offering a range of engine options the Mercedes-Benz E-Class has to be another firm favourite. Think piano black trim finishings, luxurious leather seats and smooth drive that makes long journeys a pleasure. In the E-Class your €50k will 2020 or 2021 model with between 35 and 75,000 kilometres on the clock. Engines choices are plentiful to include the frugal 1.6 litre diesel found in the E200d or the 2.0 litre diesel E220d. Trim levels include the business like Avantgarde or AMG Sport which again gives you the more pronounced bumpers with larger alloy wheels. There was a slight facelift with new headlights between 2020 and 2021 so our advice would be to take the newer option where possible. Click this link to see the current list.

Audi A6

Renowned for its comfortable interior, advanced tech features, and smooth drive the A6 has to be worth considering. Available in saloon or Avant (estate) the A6 is a car that’s aging particularly well. You will find most are powered by a 2.0 litre diesel and your budget of €50k should get you a 2020 or 2021 model wearing 38 to 75,000 kilometres. Trim levels again consist of the business like SE with chrome detailing or the more sporty S-Line. We spotted a beautiful A6 Avant S-Line Black Edition with the mild hybrid technology (MHEV) for €49k. Browse the selection below.

Hyundai Ioniq 6

It would be remiss of us not to include electric in this executive saloon category. Can the Ioniq 6 really compete as an executive car? Well in short, it most certainly can. The multiple award winning and current Irish Car of The Year has refined interior, ample space and a range of over 600km from the 77kWh battery. Right now on DoneDeal you can pick up a brand new 53kWh or a 77kWh Ioniq 6 wearing about 6,000 kilometres for under €50k. Trim levels include Signature or Elegance with various creature comforts separating the two. It’s hard not to consider the Hyundai Ionia 6 when you see and feel exactly what you are getting for your money. Click the link below so see our list.

Lexus ES300h

We think it’s safe to say that when it comes down to hybrid technology, few companies can rival Lexus. They have been in this sector for years and the ES300h is a fine example of an executive saloon that looks stylish and sophisticated. Powered by a petrol 2.5 litre engine with clever hybrid tech you will be amazed by the fuel consumption and running costs. We spotted a 2022 Dynamic Auto model for sub €50k and even 2021 F Sport for less than €49,000. Inside you will find a sea of luxury with heated and cooling leather seats and premium audio systems to make long journeys pass with ease. Click the link below to see the list.

Overall, an executive saloon car is designed to offer a luxurious, comfortable, and refined driving experience, making it an ideal choice for those who value both performance and comfort in their vehicle. We believe the list above represents a popular selection but rest assure, the DoneDeal website has significantly more choices than the selection highlight here.
