Mercedes-Benz and BMW were ranked second and third, following Toyota’s commanding lead in the PI market. Back in 2013, German luxury models such as the Mercedes-Benz E Class and the BMW 5 series ruled the PI industry. It is now 2015, but while the love for German makes still remains, the curbs on car financing here prove that the buck has to stop somewhere.

Mercedes-Benz E Class

Rated Car of the Year 2014, the Mercedes-Benz E Class Saloon is in a class of its own and presents a top-tier driving experience. This gentleman of a car offers elegance, comfort and reliability with performance to boot.The lauded precision of German engineering gives it its distinctive smooth and quiet ride, a perfect match with the beautiful lines of its angular form.

Its Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive deserves mention, and comprises intelligent assistance and safety systems that "support, think and act" together with you. Modern tow-kay and their chauffuers will especially love such features as DisTronic Plus, which alerts you when a vehicle is too near, and Active Blind Spot Assist, which uses short range sensors to monitor hard-to-see blind spots and helps you avoid potentially dangerous situations.

These and many other practical features make the E Class a gem that breaks from the mold of competing luxury marques. If you prefer a sportier look, as many do, the Avantgarde line, which has a dynamic design and optional AMG sports package, is also a popular best-seller.

BMW 5 Series

Pragmatics aside, if refinement and the driving experience are more your cups of tea, then the BMW 5 Series is a serious run for the Mercedes' money. With top-notch performance coupled to suave looks,the 5-series isn't called the 'lady-killer' for nothing.

With an award-winning engine coupled to an eight-speed steptronic transmission, this, the world's best most successful business automobile could have one of the best forced-induction 4 pot motors ever made. Looks-wise, it goes beyond skin-deep: BMW EfficientDynamics creates significant improvements to air resistance reduction and fuel consumption.

On the inside, sink into the cockpit, and you are surrounded by an angled dash with a mutltifunctional instrument display that can only be described in one word: beautiful.

Overall, the BMW 5 Series is a masterpiece of automobile engineering, with comfort and performance that tops the world's best-in-class in so many ways, you can see why brand-snobbery exists.

Little wonder, then, that we see so many of them on Singapore's pricy, yet still-congested roads ...
