The continuing popularity of the Octavia Estate is testament to the compelling offer it presents to company car drivers and their employers.
For example, the SE Business 1.6 TDI Greenline III version is available with P11D of just £21,370 and BiK of 16%. This means that it costs employees as little as £57** per month.
Not only that, but each vehicle comes with an impressive array of technology and accessories. In every ŠKODA SE Business model, 16” alloys, an Amundsen touch-screen sat nav and Bluetooth connectivity come as standard.
Furthermore, the Octavia Estate Greenline III provides impressive fuel efficiency of 80.7mpg on the combined cycle, 110PS, 90g/km of CO2 emissions, and a class-leading 1,740 litres of boot space with the seats down.
Patrick McGillycuddy, Head of Fleet for ŠKODA UK, commented: “There is no doubt that the Octavia Estate has been a revelation in the fleet market. It has the dual benefit of offering fleet managers the compelling financial figures they like to see, whilst also giving user-choosers an impressive assortment of kit to make every day driving more enjoyable.”
The Octavia Estate’s success coincides with a strong year of fleet sales for ŠKODA UK. In 2015, the brand announced a year-on-year spike in sales among corporate and SME clients of 22%.
