First and foremost, the Skoda Octavia offers generous space for occupants and a massive boot that dwarfs most competitors from the class above, plus its plush interior and frugal engines make it a fantastic car for covering big distances in. The iV makes brilliant financial sense for company car users.

SE L gets you a few more luxuries such as 17in alloy wheels, “microsuede” upholstery on the dashboard, rear privacy glass and keyless entry.

Our pick for company car drivers is the brilliant plug-in hybrid 1.4 TSI iV 204. It sits in a very low BIK tax band and, as far as performance goes, it'll rattle off 0-62mph in just 7.8sec; although it's less rapid in electric-only mode it's pokey enough and can officially do up to 41 miles on a single charge. That's very competitive for a plug-in hybrid and should cover the majority of commutes. Charging takes 6hrs from a three-pin plug or 3hrs from a 7kW wall box.
