The best company cars for £60,000 and above

Our experts have tested every company car in the UK, and these are the best picks for a bigger budget.

BMW i5

  • Best executive saloon
  • Variant: eDrive40 M Sport
  • Price: £74,050
  • Powertrain: 84kWh battery, 1x e-motor
  • CO2/BiK band: 0g/km/2%
  • 0-62mph/top speed: 6.0 seconds/120mph

The BMW 5 Series has been the benchmark large executive saloon for several years, and the latest generation expands its reach with pure-electric versions alongside the conventional petrols and plug-in hybrids

The i5 is heavier than its stablemates and it feels it, but there’s still a poise here that sets the BMW apart from many of its rivals. While performance is solid rather than spectacular, with a 0-62mph time of six seconds, the BMW will win you over in other areas, such as the beautifully appointed cabin and its cutting-edge infotainment system that’s a doddle to use. It’s expensive as a private buy, but as a company-car choice, the i5 looks a really complete offering.

BMW iX

  • Best SUV
  • Variant: xDrive50 M Sport
  • Price: £105,440
  • Powertrain: 111.5kWh battery, 2x e-motors
  • CO2/BiK band: 0g/km/2%
  • 0-62mph/top speed: 4.6 seconds/124mph

BMW’s flagship EV is a futuristic-looking SUV whose looks tend to polarise opinion – but whatever your view on the styling, there’s no denying that the iX is a deeply impressive creation. It drives better than anything this size and weight should, its packaging allows five adults to cruise in comfort in the beautifully finished cabin, and the whopping 111kWh battery delivers real-world range comfortably in excess of 300 miles (officially 382 miles).

There’s a price to pay for this, of course – but BiK rates soften the blow of even a P11D price north of £100k. If you’re lucky enough to have the iX as an option, probably as a higher-rate taxpayer, £70 per month in tax looks a huge bargain to our eyes

Kia EV9

  • Best seven-seater
  • Variant: Air
  • Price: £64,970
  • Powertrain: 99.8kWh battery, 1x e-motor
  • CO2/BiK band: 0g/km/2%
  • 0-62mph/top speed: 9.4 seconds/114mph

Kia made a huge splash when it launched the EV9 in four-wheel-drive guise, but the sweet spot of the range is actually the more modest rear-drive Air. It comes with all of the standard kit you’d reasonably ask for, but packs plenty of range (349 miles) and still brings seating for seven in a high-quality interior.

The EV9’s sheer size means it won’t be for everyone, but where the Korean offering really stands out is its comfort; Kia’s engineers have taken the E-GMP platform and tuned it to ride exceptionally well, making this a great car to transport lots of people over long distances. And all for a little over £43 per month in BiK tax for a higher-rate payer. That’s astonishing value for money.

Land Rover Defender

  • Best family car
  • Variant: 110 2.0 P400e X
  • Price: £91,750
  • Powertrain: 2.0-litre 4cyl plug-in hybrid
  • CO2/BiK band: 61g/km/17%
  • 0-62mph/top speed: 5.6 secs/119mph

For those who want the capacity to go genuinely anywhere, not just beyond the scope of the recharging network, the Land Rover Defender is the iconic option. Its chunky looks, clever packaging and neatly finished interior are trumped only by solid on-road dynamics and astonishing off-road ability.

There’s no electric Defender (yet), so the best option for company-car choosers is the plug-in P400e. It has enough power to cope with the Land Rover’s size and mass, but its CO2 emissions and pure-electric range remain relatively high and low respectively – so a 17-per cent BiK bill might not be the easiest pill to swallow.

Porsche Taycan

  • Best estate
  • Variant: 4 Cross Turismo
  • Price: £96,800
  • Powertrain: 105kWh battery, 2x e-motors
  • CO2/BiK band: 0g/km/2%
  • 0-62mph/top speed: 4.7 seconds/137mph

Porsche has just updated its Taycan, with a larger battery and a useful boost in range among the improvements. The same applies to its Cross Turismo, the slightly jacked-up wagon version of the EV that’s arguably better as an all-round proposition.

The great thing with the Taycan Cross Turismo is that even in base spec, you’re still talking about a car with four-wheel drive and over 400bhp, plus a 0-62mph time of less than five seconds. These raw stats are matched by engaging on-road dynamics and a cabin that  knocks spots off much of the opposition with its blend of high-quality materials and neatly integrated tech. Cheap BiK rates are but the icing on the cake, really.
