Business as usual: ŠKODA Karoq named Best Crossover in 2021 CCT100 Awards

The ŠKODA Karoq has always been an attractive package to company car drivers and now, thanks to the award of a prestigious Company Car Today title, the multi-talented ŠKODA SUV has the silverware to prove it.

The mid-size SUV has been named Best Crossover in the annual CCT100 Awards, seeing off tough competition to take the top spot. The CCT100 Awards aims to provide a definitive list of the 100 cars that can fulfil any business car requirement and helps shape the purchasing decisions of fleet managers and company car drivers. Every shortlisted car is assessed in 13 key areas from price to practicality, with the winner being the model that recorded the highest overall score.

Commenting on the Karoq’s victory, Paul Barker, Editor of Company Car Today said: “The Karoq combines excellence in all the sensible things that make a good company car with style and good driving dynamics. It offers strong residual values and running costs, a huge boot and a good quality interior, as well as impressive equipment levels, giving it all the ingredients of a class winner in the competitive and popular crossover segment.”

The Karoq was launched in 2017 and has won a host of industry accolades since its arrival. These include two Auto Express Awards for Best Mid-size SUV and was named Best SUV under £20,000 in the 2020 What Car? Awards. Available in five different trim levels, including Edition and SportLine, the Karoq was ŠKODA’s second biggest-selling car globally in 2020. Prices start from £23,220 OTR.
