ŠKODA Octavia Estate tops true fleet rankings

Data released in January 2016 shows that the ŠKODA Octavia is the number one choice of estate car for UK businesses and fleet managers.

Motorists voted the Octavia their favourite estate for its technology, efficiency, and the resulting benefits to business finance. Industry experts agree, as the car has won a number of awards for fleet suitability.

The tailored SE Business equipment level for the car provides owners with features such as Bluetooth® connectivity and Amundsen satellite navigation on a touchscreen. Having a specific Business trim in itself is a sign of ŠKODA's corporate focus. The Octavia's many functions have no impact on the expansive luggage space. Folding the rear seats increases the boot to 1,740 litres.

Under the bonnet, the 1.6-litre diesel engine in the Greenline III edition works hard to keep running costs lower. It produces as much as 80.7mpg combined fuel economy, with CO2 emissions at just 90g/km. Benefit-in-Kind reaches as much as 16 percent. Depending on the specifications, the Octavia could cost as little as £57 per month on business finance (terms and conditions apply).

This new data shows that the ŠKODA model holds a quarter of the true fleet estate segment by itself. That is an increase in market share of more than 50 percent year on year. Total fleet sales of ŠKODA cars have increased by a similar amount since this time in 2015, up by 22 percent.
