Automotive data experts hpi have crunched the numbers to come up with the best picks when considering an executive car.

The Mercedes Benz S Class tops the table and retains over 50% of its value after three years and 30,000 miles. The Audi A6 comes a close second and retains 49.2% over the same period.

Commenting on the study, James Dower senior editor from hpi said: “Executive cars can provide a cost-effective way to inject some luxury into your motoring. Our data shows that everything from Mercedes S Class to a Hyundai Genesis can prove a savvy purchase. Often loaded with safety technology, most executive cars can prove a great second hand buy too.”

The Jaguar XF, Audi A6, Mercedes-Benz CLS, BMW 6 Series and Infiniti Q70 also make the list with industry-leading levels of low depreciation.
