Company car choices

I suspect you can get a Merc for £400 a month so a C-Class BlueEfficiency would be my choice, around 65mpg apparently and will munch the miles with ease.

The 220 might be stretching the budget a bit but is worth a look. I think I prefer the looks of the Saudi or BMW but will have to see up close

I did like my Seat but the interior lets them down a bit IMHO. I spend a lot of time in the car so it has to be as nice on the inside as the outside

Nissan quasqai or whatever it's called is the motability car of choice. My money would be A4 or 3 series and keep your tax liability low.
Van?
T5??

Do you have a fuel card or do you claim back fuel at the company car advisory rate from HRMC?

If it is at the advisory rate, then 2.2l diesels (like the Merc) can work out significantly cheaper as you get a higher rate. (3p more a mile over a typical 2.0l engine which is normally 1995cc)

Not on our policy unfortunately. It's a flat 15p a mile no matter what engine. I can get a fuel card but the personal mileage I do wouldn't justify it. I do make a killing on the mileage rate in the current civic so at least it has one thing going for it!

Looking at an A3 saloon now as I can get a fair bit of kit and stay in budget. Will have to take a look at the boot though...
