Top 10 Company Cars

When searching for a company car, drivers want a vehicle that looks like a million pounds – even if its not worth anything near that value – has unmatched reliability and oozes of sophistication.

The ten cars listed below tick all of these boxes, and offers a few unique touches on top.

BMW 1 Series1. BMW 1 Series

The latest model of the BMW 1 Series, the BMW 116d Efficient Dynamics, is a perfect company car for drivers who want to avoid regular journeys to the pumps.

Boasting CO2 emissions of a meagre 99g/km, the car is perfect for a person looking to considerably reduce their carbon footprint. It also packs a classy design, as an added bonus.

2. BMW 3 Series

Working our way up the BMW range, the German car maker's 3 Series is one of the best compact executive vehicles around.

Just ask Business Car Manager, who not only awarded the vehicle with the Best Executive prize at its 2012 Best Business Car Awards, but also the prestigious honour of Business Car of the Year 2012.

The publication's editor Ralph Morton stated: "In an age where business car drivers are being tempted on all sides by crossovers and SUVs, BMW has proved that there is still a place for the traditional saloon."

3. BMW 520d Efficient Dynamics

Rounding out the trio of BMW cars in our list is the BMW 520d Efficient Dynamics, a supermini-rivalling member of the German manufacturer's 5 Series.

Most cars in this family pack in plush interior styles and a comfortable ride that no other car maker can match. With the 520d though, drivers receive both of these appealing features on top of standout Co2 emissions and fuel economy statistics.

Kia Rio4. Kia Rio

Take your pick with the Kia Rio range – every car in the series look stylish, are a joy to drive and are packed to the brim with quality features.

However, we personally think the Kia Rio 1.1 EcoDynamics may just edge ahead of its brothers. Awarding drivers 88mpg and emitting just 85g/km, the interior design is also smart and presents a standout precision drive every time.

Kia Ceed5. Kia Ceed

While checking out the Kia portion of our car showroom for a perfect company car, may we suggest you also have a peek at the Kia Ceed?

Five minutes with this vehicle and drivers will notice that it presents decent kit levels, offers a pleasant driving experience and achieves a five-star build quality.

6. Ford Focus 1.0T EcoBoost

Ask someone about a Ford Focus and often they will picture a vehicle that is brimming with power and is more for those after a sporty car.

However, the Ford Focus 1.0T EcoBoost stands apart from its siblings, by presenting a vehicle that is comfortable to drive, gives off an upmarket feel and is very economical.

The vehicle is so impressive in fact, that Business Car Manager named it the Best Company Car during its 2012 Best Business Car Awards presentation.

7. Ford Mondeo

The Ford Mondeo and company cars are to the vehicle industry what bread and butter is to the food industry – they just make a perfect fit.

Drivers interested in this range should check out the Mondeo 1.6 TDCi 115 Eco Zetec. Only recently coming off the production line, the vehicle boasts low emissions, excellent performance and top-of-the-class fuel economy.

The drive is also relaxing and smooth, so even the most stressful days at work can be forgotten about while behind the wheel.

8. Nissan Qashqai

Japanese car manufacturer Nissan have long been known for developing small and nimble vehicles – think the iconic original Micra for reference.

However, the Nissan Qashqai was a dramatic shift in direction for the firm when it was released. Featuring a funky 4x4 design and an image which will always turn heads, it is an ideal company car for drivers seeking something a little different.

Mazda CX-59. Mazda CX-5

Just like its Japanese neighbours, Mazda has also gained a specific image over the years. Most drivers think sleek and sporty when piecing together their typical Mazda car in their minds.

While a hint of sportiness remains in the Mazda CX-5, the compact SUV also excels at offering motorists outstanding style, safety and spirit.

The perfect all-round company car you could say.

Skoda Citigo10. Skoda Citigo

Rounding out our top ten is the Skoda Citigo, which presents drivers with a company car brimming with practicality and sophistication, as well as being small and affordable.

Those who opt for the Skoda Citigo 1.0 60 Greentech SE will be presented with standout fuel efficiency as well. In effect, it is the vehicle that covers all the bases with ease.
