Our Geneva Motor Show company car stars

  • Which cars unveiled at this year's show make great company cars?
  • Could you soon find them on your company choice lists?
  • Many popular models have been revised

The Geneva Motor Show is the most-anticipated of all motorshows, offering a glimpse of the cars that will soon be rolling along our roads and appearing on your company car lists soon.

If you're on the lookout for a new car, have a look at our top five company car favourites from the show as we explain why they make perfect sense as your next steed.

Volkswagen Golf GTE

It was only a matter of time before Volkswagen announced plans to start production on a plug-in hybrid Golf - and here we have it. Order books are set to open in August for the new Golf GTE and first deliveries should be here by the end of the year.

With an official combined fuel consumption figure of 118mpg and CO2 emissions of 35g/km, Volkswagen has high expectations for Golf GTE on the company car market.

The GTE can travel up to 31 miles on electric power alone too, provided you don't stray over 81mph - at which point the 1.4-litre TSI direct-injection petrol engine takes over. Combined the powerplant pairing create 202bhp with a 0-62mph time of 7.6 seconds and a possible top speed of 135mph.

Ford Focus

The biggest-selling company car in the UK has had a mid-life facelift, and the most obvious change to the Focus is the new front grille similar to that seen on the Fiesta.

Slimmer headlamps with LED Daytime Running lights also feature, as does a new tailgate design.

But it’s not all about looks as the 2014 Focus is also introducing a range of new engines as well as ushering in improvements to the existing units for better emissions and fuel economy.

The facelifted Focus will also be the first model in Europe to offer the company’s ‘SYNC2’ multimedia package which includes touchscreen functionality and smartphone integration.

Mercedes-Benz C-Class

We are big fans of the current Mercedes C-Class but it looks like the firm has raised the bar with its latest model - we've certainly got high expectations for when we get behind the wheel in a few weeks.

Taking styling cues from the recently launched S-Class, the new C-Class has a revised interior and an array of new technology on board. It's set to arrive in dealerships in the summer.

There will be a choice of a four-cylinder petrol or diesel engines and both will be available with either a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic gearbox. Both CO2 emissions and fuel economy have been greatly improved too, so tax and running costs should be low.

BMW 2 Series Active Tourer

This is BMW’s first ever front-wheel drive people carrier, and although the firm is embarking into new territory its stellar reputation suggests our high expectations are justified.

Ideally placed for company car drivers with a family, the new 2 Series Active Tourer boasts plenty of interior space, a choice of frugal engines and the dose of luxury we have come to expect from the German manufacturer.

Volkswagen Polo

Although the Volkswagen Polo looks very similar to the current model, it’s under the bonnet where the real improvements have been made thanks to its range of Euro6 engines. 

The big news is that the 1.2-litre diesel-powered Polo BlueMotion is to be replaced with a petrol engine. This new 1.0-litre TSI engine is capable of achieving 68.9mpg and only emits 94g/km of CO2. That means a 12 percent BIK tax band for the 2014/15 tax year.

But that’s not all, there are interior tweaks and some new technology added to help place the Polo back in line with the likes of the Ford Fiesta.
