Comparator: Detailed vehicle comparison

If you are a business car manager, SME director or small business owner, then use the Company profile under the Assumptions tab to view the relevant company car costs.

If you are a company car driver then you should use the Driver profile.

Costs can be presented for 2, 3 or 4 year profiles at either 10,000 or 20,000 miles each year and you can compare different company cars side-by-side, or the same vehicle (using Create duplicate) under different profiles to see which car leasing price and over what period would be best for your business.

These costs are expressed under the Cost Focus tab. All the running cost figures, including the car leasing prices, are crunched to provide a total cost per mile figure.
