The MoT Files: The top 10 performing fleet cars
According to data from the Department for Transport’s National Travel Survey, a company car will cover around 19,400 miles a year, with most approach the 60,000 barrier by the time the first MoT test is due.
However, with the recession still fresh in the minds of fleet managers, more and more firms are keeping their cars for longer, which makes MoT performance an all important factor when it comes to choosing which cars make it to those fleet lists. We've crunched the data in the MoT Files to find the top 10 performing fleet cars. What’s more, we have also contrasted the numbers with the SMMT’s data 2010 fleet registrations to get an in-depth view of how the UK's big selling cars perform when it comes to the first MoT.
Vauxhall Corsa 80% pass rate
The final entry in our top 10 fleet cars is the Vauxhall Corsa, with cars registered in 2010 scoring an impressive 80 per cent average for passing the MoT at the first time of asking, which makes it a great company car candidate. What’s more the Corsa has been a popular seller in the UK, with a top 10 ranking in the fleet sales charts for the past three years.
