Best company car: the perferct all-rounder

Author: Sam Hardy

Winner Ford Focus 1.0T EcoBoost 125PS

Ford has pulled another winner out of the bag. It has listened to its critics and the latest Focus is more comfortable, upmarket and relaxing than ever.

But Ford has done more than that – it’s now shaking up the company car sector with this new EcoBoost. And it’s not a diesel. The 125PS 1.0-litre petrol model has all that the business driver needs – it’s punchy with lots of low-down overtaking urge, smooth and relaxing on the motorway. Plus there’s lower company car tax than the diesel.

What’s more, for £750 you get the fantastic driver assistance package too, which comes with low-speed crash mitigation, road sign recognition and blind spot warning

It’s a brilliant all-rounder.

New Ford Focus EcoBoost, winner of Best Company Car
Ford's new turbocharged petrol EcoBoost engine is a winner in the Focus: refined yet sporty, punchy but economical, and cheaper on company car tax than the equivalent diesel

Commended: VW Golf Bluemotion

The only reason the Golf misses out on the top spot is because it lacks the equipment of the Focus. That’s it.

Commended: Toyota Auris Hybrid

Proof that hybrids don’t need to come in a Prius-shaped package, the petrol-electric Auris requires few compromises.

Commended:  Skoda Octavia Greenline

Priced like a Golf with almost the same space as a Passat the Octavia is a great company car – particularly in 74mpg Greenline spec.
