IIT may be cliche, but a ju­nior ex­ec­u­tive sa­loon is still con­sid­ered by many to be a suc­cess sym­bol – es­pe­cially if it hap­pens to be a model from an es­tab­lished Euro­pean mar­que. One of the most recog­nis­able mod­els in this seg­ment is the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The cur­rent model, which was launched three years ago, is a leap over its pre­de­ces­sor, es­pe­cially in terms of space and re­fine­ment. Fur­ther en­hanc­ing the car’s “star” ap­peal is its de­sign, which strongly re­sem­bles that of its larger and more ex­pen­sive E-Class and S-Class siblings. Also a notch above the pre­ced­ing model is the Audi A4. Apart from of­fer­ing the feel of a big­ger sa­loon, the A4 is brim­ming with ad­vanced fea­tures and prom­ises a sure-footed drive, thanks to its stan­dard qu­at­tro all-wheel-drive sys­tem. Tak­ing on the C200 and the A4 in this con­test is the Jaguar XE. Like the A4, this fe­line has an un­der­stated de­sign, but given the Bri­tish com­pany’s rep­u­ta­tion for sporti­ness, the XE prom­ises to de­light its driver while keep­ing its com­peti­tors on their toes.

Which of th­ese con­tenders would ap­peal the most to the ris­ing cor­po­rate climber? Con­tinue read­ing to dis­cover what we think.
