If you’re already convinced of the merits of a company car, then you’re still left with a simple question: which car is best for a particular job? Here, we’ll assess six leading candidates.
The A3 offers the same effortless ride and enviable design of its forebears – particularly if you opt for the Sportback version. It boasts a range of features that executives will crave, but you’ll pay a premium to benefit from them.
The Focus is among the most popular hatchbacks in the history of the world, and that’s so for a good reason: it handles perfectly, and is a pleasure to drive. With that said, for the same price you’ll find a larger boot and a more generous complement of features.
Citroen C4 Cactus
Citroen’s Cactus comes with enviable fuel economy and ultra-low emissions, which are sure to make it an attractive prospect for firms looking to slash their outgoings. Where it falls down is in the interior, which comes with an intuitive touchscreen interface and a general feeling of cheapness.
For business owners, the Astra is particularly attractive, as it comes with especially low emissions and sizeable discounts, where you can find them. The reliability can be questionable, and the performance isn’t all that exciting – but this remains a sensible choice for most commuters. If the Astra is for you, with the help of extended warranties from firms like ALA, you’ll be able to have the appropriate cover in the event of an accident or breakdown.
BMW 3 Series Saloon
Firms looking to offer an incentive will consider the prestige that comes with this iconic German name. The 3-series is a cut above many of the other entries here when it come to price, but the extra investment yields a substantial uptick in quality. Put simply, they’re spectacular to drive, and come with an infotainment interface that’s the envy of the class.
At the other end of the affordability spectrum falls this family-friendly SUV from Dacia. To get so much into a car at this price bracket takes a lot of clever thinking, and a little compromise when it comes to the trim. That said, it’s difficult to argue with the amount of performance and practicality you get, especially if you opt for the 4x4 version.
