4% company car tax saving on Citroen diesels

High mileage business drivers for whom clean diesel is the only answer should take a look at the business contract hire rentals on Citroen vehicles. Not only will you get a great deal, you'll save yourself 4% in company car tax.

All Citroen passenger cars with BlueHDi diesel engine have now been certified to the highest level for their emissions - both on CO2 and NOx - and now meet the ‘Real Driving Emissions Step 2' (RDE2) emissions standard.

That's good news for you and the planet. Because RDE2 certified diesels are exempt from the 4% company car tax surcharge applied to diesel cars.

What does that mean for your pocket? Citroen says that a C5 Aircross SUV Flair 130 EAT8 auto will attract savings of £19 and £39 per month for 20% and 40% taxpayers respectively.

It lists further examples below (based on the 2019/20 tax year).
