75 benefits from a facelift and new trim options, but remains mechanically unchanged. It weighs in against aspirational rivals such as 3-Series, Lexus IS and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, although it's actually a larger car. That doesn't make it a 5 Series/E-Class rival however as it's not that big and isn't really up to such comparison (although a Limousine version is available with an extra eight inches in length).

Perhaps a more likely rival would be the Jaguar X-Type, as this car also appeals to those who like the quintessentially English charm of wood 'n' leather and graceful bodywork. The 75 certainly does this very well and offers a comfortable ride and interior with a rather stately air even on more basic models.
