What luxury car would you recommend?

After 8 years driving a SEAT Leon I want something a little more luxurious. What do you think I should get, a 2015 BMW 3 Series 2.0 TD 320d EfficientDynamics BusinessTouring 5d (£16,895) or a 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class 2.1 CDI C220 BlueTEC SE Executive (s/s) Estate 5d (£17,999)? Both are manual and around 32,000 miles.

BMW's ED works. I ran a 320dED for 8,000 miles and averaged 63mpg. You just have to keep a careful ear on the timing chain for any sign of a rattle and get the tensioners replaced if there is.

Big improvements in quality and refinement over previous Leon. Great to drive with sharp handling. Good value. Shares same base as latest A3 and Golf.
More grown-up 3 Series. Fine balance on the road. Fantastic diesel engines.
Fantastic depth of quality, lovely cabin ambience and improved interior space, very refined, quiet and composed – even the four-cylinder diesels.
