A sense of British patriotism and a nod to British motoring history will lead your mind towards Jaguar, and with the Jaguar XJ you will be coming to terms with style, poise, performance and confidence - as well as approval ratings from anyone you meet whilst driving it.
It is sporty, it is technologically advanced and it is classy. The very name says all that, and it is backed up by a drive in it.

When Mercedes set out to make the best car in the world, they came up with the Mercedes-Benz S Class, a saloon that could challenge the Rolls-Royce Phantom when it comes to comfort. It is strong and rigid; it is quiet to drive and comfortable; it is spacious and chock-full of technology; and it is the archetypal flagship motor - the flagship by which all flagships should be measured.
With a choice of three petrol and one diesel engine, with a nine-speed automatic and advanced 48v hybrid electric powertrain technology to boost both performance and efficiency, it is almost the perfect luxury car.

If the Mercedes S-Class is the flagship to be measured against, the Audi A8 comes so very close to it that you can reach out and touch it!
The latest Audi A8 offers a choice of turbocharged engines (a 282bhp diesel or 335bhp petrol) alongside an advanced chassis, powertrain and more in-car technology than you can shake a gearstick at. Four-wheel-drive comes as standard to ensure a smooth ride in both comfort and quality and although it may not offer as much 'standout-ability' in exterior design as a Mercedes or a Jaguar, the mere Audi name ensures admiration from those around you.
As Audi's flagship model, the Audi A8 pulls out all the stops to ensure that it rises to the top, with a beautifully built and double-glazed interior that includes temperature-controlled seats and the Audi Drive Select system that gives the driver the opportunity to 'open her up' and move into speed and sportiness with no noticeable loss of comfort or luxury.

Originally launched in 1977, the BMW 7 Series has always been seen as BMW's attempt to crack the luxury saloon market and with the latest 7 Series model they may well have achieved it.
Inside there is a complete package of space, technology and usability, while outside is undoubtedly a BMW - with a little bit more. With a range of quiet, powerful and efficient engines, the 7 Series is the car that proves that big luxury cars can be as rewarding to drive as they are comfortable to sit in.
More luxurious to drive than look at, the BMW 7 Series is the car for those see the Mercedes S-Class and the Audi A8 as 'out of their league' or 'not for them'. And with great economy (the 730d version offers up to 60mpg) as well, discretion may be the better part of boastfullness for the 7 Series driver.
Over 30 versions of the BMW 7 Series are available to lease from Nationwide Vehicle Contracts.
