Green Awards 2012

Executive cars

The best green executive car of 2012 needs to exude quality and desirability, but keep CO2 emissions as low as possible.

As well as minimising impact on the environment, this cuts company car tax and fuel bills – crucial factors in this category – to a minimum.

Buyers also demand a car that’s good to drive, reasonably practical and has top-notch interior quality. Our winner must excel in all these areas.
