Parkers Awards 2021 - Best Company Car

Best Company Car Award in partnership with…   Fleet News

 

The needs of company car drivers are many and varied – and any carmaker that can build a model that’s at the heart of what business users need is doing very well indeed. This is a tightly fought award, and our three favourites all have the skill set to win this category – from low running and taxation costs and reliability, to desirability and sheer joy to drive – choosing a winner is going to be very tough indeed.

Best company car - BMW 330e

The latest BMW 330e plug-in hybrid continues to blend its smart looks and entertaining driving experience with low running costs. It offers affordable BIK costs with its 39g/km CO2 output and good fuel economy from its petrol engine. That’s not all, though. Thanks to its special XtraBoost function, this efficient car is also capable of being a very fast one for 10 seconds at a time. It may not be the sweetest 3 Series to drive in the range but it’s still more rewarding than its immediate rivals. And it's still the one to beat in the mind of most company car drivers.

Best company car - Skoda Superb

SKODA SUPERB iV

The Skoda Superb has always been a good-value alternative to an Audi A6 or BMW 5 Series for Ford Mondeo money – and that continues into 2021. But in addition to offering lots of metal for the money, the stylish Superb is also available as a tax-efficient plug-in hybrid, making it a great choice for company car buyers. Updated for 2020, the latest Superb benefits from an updated interior and infotainment system, and some visual tweaks to give it even more of a premium feel. These tweaks mean that the Superb gets the nod over the excellent Volkswagen Passat GTE, with which it shares so much under-the-skin technology.

Best company car - Tesla Model 3

TESLA MODEL 3

The all-electric Model 3 has the established BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Audi A4 firmly in its sights. It's quick and good to drive in all of its forms and if you’re after the cheapest version, the Standard Range Plus is where you need to head, producing a very green 0g/km of CO2 and claiming to do 254 miles on a full charge. It's still the best option for EV drivers who want to travel longer distances, thanks to its excellent (and fast!) Supercharger network. It's also surprisingly affordable to lease – which might explain why it was the UK's bestselling car during 2020's lockdown.
