A1 Sportback wins Most Cost-Efficient Car for an SME Company Car Driver
Praised for its “low cost, low CO2 and good brand appeal” by judges
1.6 TDI SE version with 105PS and CO2 of 99g/km is available now, priced at £14,700 OTR
The Audi A1 Sportback has won a key award in the annual Business Car Manager SME Company Car of the Year Awards 2012, proving it has pride of place alongside its hugely successful three-door sister model.
Judges in the awards, run in association with MAGMA Automotive Services, singled out the A1 Sportback as Most Cost-Efficient Car for an SME Company Car Driver.
Editor of Business Car Manager, Ralph Morton explained: “The Audi A1 Sportback encapsulates everything that’s welcome about company car downsizing: a premium badge for car park credibility, low CO2 emissions for reduced company car tax exposure, and running costs that put a stranglehold on any business motoring expenditure.”
James Douglas, Head of Fleet Sales at Audi UK, added: “It is fantastic to see the A1 Sportback regarded so highly for its efficiency credentials. The 1.6 TDI engine is capable of achieving 74.3mpg whilst only emitting 99g/km. Practical and with a premium feel inside and out, it is a genuinely exciting company car choice.”
