Finding the perfect company car has become quite the challenge. Choosing the right one is a little like walking a tightrope. There are countless things to consider and that perfect balance is tough to come across. You need classic and sophisticated good looks so you turn up to meetings looking professional. You need great mileage and fuel consumption. Remember, you’ll be spending a lot of time on the road, you don’t want to spend a fortune on fuel. You also get a tax break on cars with good fuel economy.
You’ll also want reliability and safety built at the heart of the car. You want to squeeze hundreds of thousands of miles out of the car without engine problems. Alongside all of that, you want comfort and a little luxury. Those long, motorway drives get dull and uncomfortable after a while; your car should take care of you. This is quite the list of features to squeeze into one car. Today we’ll look at all the cars that walk this fine line. They are the best company cars on the planet.
