The Ford Puma has topped the charts in the annual Company Car Today CCT100 run-down of the 100 cars to suit every business need, while BMW collected four trophies in the annual CCT100 Awards.
The Puma dominated its sector to take the Compact Crossover of the Year award, and followed that up with the overall Car of the Year prize thanks to its strong appeal to both fleet managers and company car drivers in a fast-growing segment of the market.
BMW’s four CCT100 awards went to the 3-Series, 5-Series, 7-Series and X5 to reinforce the brand’s company car appeal, while Kia, Peugeot and Volvo also took two awards each and Audi, Citroen, Hyundai, Mazda, Renault, Skoda, Toyota and Vauxhall also each topped one of the 20 categories. All the winners can be found at www.companycartoday.co.uk/cct100-awards.
“The new Puma gives the increasingly popular Compact Crossover segment a clear standard-bearer from both the point of view of the efficiency and running costs vital to fleet operators and the driving dynamics and practicality that appeal to drivers,” said Company Car Today Editor Paul Barker. “Our CCT100 chart highlights the breadth and diversity of company car options available to business and drivers, including huge leaps in the quality and quantity of plug-in choices, making a company car more appealing than ever.”
The Company Car Today CCT100 Awards pick out the key models across the 20 key sectors of the car industry, highlighting the best options for business car operation, considering elements including running costs, efficiency, practicality and all-round appeal.
The awards form part of the CCT100 countdown of the 100 cars that car meet any fleet requirement, which appears in the new issue of Company Car Today, published on 13 January and also available online at www.companycartoday.co.uk/magazine.
“Our exhaustive research into the top 100 cars for any fleet use, and the 20 Best in Class within that, highlights quite what an impressive choice there is out there,” said Company Car Today Publisher Dave Wallace. “The 2021 CCT100 chart is an essential guide to the cars that should be on a fleet’s choice list, no matter what their requirements.”
