The winners have been announced for the 2019 BusinessCar Awards, at a sold out ceremony on Wednesday 30th October at Hilton London Tower Bridge.

Designed to recognise the fleets, suppliers and manufacturers that demonstrate outstanding customer service and innovative products, the awards are judged by respected industry experts including well-known road testers, fleet managers and representatives from industry bodies. Plus there are two reader-voted awards: new company car of the year and manufacturer of the year, with the winners announced on the night alongside the other awards.

Sponsored by the AA, Europcar Mobility Group, the Grosvenor Group, Lex Autolease and Ogilvie Fleet, the BusinessCar Awards are now in their third year and aim to build on the success of 2018.
