BMW 'top choice for fleets'
29 June 2012
When you are looking for a contract hire scheme you know that you will have the potential to save money.
The small deposits and monthly payments often work out at a sum much smaller than the list price for the equivalent vehicle that you will get to drive, but that still does not mean that you should not take your time to pick the model which is most suitable to your specific needs.
A BMW car leasing scheme will be a tempting choice - especially if you are after vehicles that need to be relied on for work purposes.
The German manufacturer has been named as Fleet Manufacturer of the Year by industry title Fleet World for the third time in a row.
Chair of the judges and editor of Fleet World Steve Moody said: "When we asked major fleet and leasing companies who they thought was the number one fleet manufacturer, the answer was unequivocal: BMW."
He explained that some of the highlights in the range are the new 3 Series and the low levels of carbon dioxide produced by its precision-engineered engines.
The aforementioned 3 Series may be particularly appealing to car leasing customers. The saloon version won the award for Best Compact Executive Car - for the fourth consecutive year - at Auto Express's New Car Honours ceremony.
Yet the range is strong throughout with the 1 Series and 5 Series also honoured on the night.
Steve Fowler, magazine editor in chief, stated: "What a combination. It sounds too good to be true, but the amalgamation of great looks, a brilliant drive and affordable running costs makes the BMW 1 Series, 3 Series and 5 Series all worthy winners."
The BMW 3 Series Saloon 320i SE, which has a list price of £24,950, is available for £310 per month on contract hire.
