Skoda has announced a line of new models for company car drivers called SE Business which features 19 variants from the Octavia, Superb and Yeti models - all of which are tailored for an added emphasis on practicality and comfort.
The 1.6 and 2.0-litre engined cars that Skoda offers in SE Business trim are all fitted with stop-start technology and low rolling resistance tyres to help achieve low running costs. The latest Skoda Octavia hatch or Estate will return a combined economy of 88.3mpg and emissions as little as 85g/km of CO2 when fitted with the eco-friendly Greenline III powertrain.
Even the all-wheel-drive 138bhp 2.0-litre TDI Yeti Outdoor will return 44.8mpg and CO2 emissions of 164g/km. Benefit in Kind tax rates start from 14% and rise to a maximum of 28%, with four SE Business models also exempt Vehicle Excise Duty.
In terms of standard kit, Skoda gives all of its SE Business range cars a touchscreen satellite navigation system with DAB radio and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as dual-zone air-conditioning and cruise control.
The SE Business range also benefits from Skoda’s 60,000 mile warranty and three-year roadside assistant programme available across Europe.
Head of Fleet at Skoda UK, Patrick McGillycuddy, described the SE Business range as “the first Skoda line-up tailored specifically to the diverse requirements of today’s company car drivers.”
Prices start from £19,560 for the 1.6 TDI CR DPF Octavia hatch, which has a P11D value of £19,505.
