If you are a dedicated follower of fashion, you will know that style has no age limit. And if you are a senior driver who wants a classy looking car, there’s a sedan out there with your name on it. Take a look at our road tested top three – stylish, contemporary and lots of fun!

Top 3 sedans for senior drivers

1) Infiniti Q50 Red Sport

On the surface, this may look like another ordinary executive sedan. But the Infiniti Q50 Red Sport is far from mundane, at least to drive. Under its bonnet lies a 3.0-litre V6 engine that produces no less than 400bhp. What’s more, the engine is similar to the one found in the Nissan GT-R, which is as wild a sports car as you can get. The Q50 Red Sport gets some pretty fancy stuff too, like its Dynamic Active Steering (DAS) system that is effectively a steer-by-wire system. There are a whole host of safety systems that include land departure, collision warning and prevention systems, as well as forward emergency braking. Underestimate this sedan at your peril!

2) BMW 540i

BMW’s latest version of its hallmark executive sedan has been completely revamped, and the new 5 Series now mimics its bigger 7 Series sibling in many areas. Go for the top-spec 540i model and you get a car that comes with a 3.0-litre turbocharged straight-six that produces 335bhp! Plenty of oomph delivered in a slick, smooth fashion. You also get a ton of new-age fancy tech stuff, including a digital key fob from which you can park the car remotely, a cool gesture control system for the infotainment system, and an adaptive suspension system that ‘predicts’ the road conditions and adjusts accordingly on the fly. Welcome to the future.

3) Volvo S90

Volvos used to be dull and boring - large squares driven by the safety conscious who spent their days shuffling to and from the polo club. Not any more. If the S90 is anything to go by. Volvo’s latest executive sedan is as modern and forward-thinking as they come. Its sleek design is a far cry from the angular Volvo designs of old, and under its skin lies plenty of clever features, including something called Pilot Assist, which can almost help the car steer and drive itself (you still need to keep an eye out and put your hands on the wheel). The interior looks contemporary and minimalist, giving you the ambience of an inviting lounge. This Volvo is unlike the Volvos you remember, and so much better for that!
