Swindon's Civic takes top prize for reliability in FN50
14th November 2018
The Honda Civic has been named the most reliable fleet car in this year’s FN50 survey. The stylish model achieved top position in a reliability index of cars operated by FN50 companies.
Commissioned by Fleet News, the annual analysis of the top 50 (by fleet size) leasing companies in the UK asked participants to rank the best vehicles and manufacturers for reliability, with scores compiled to create a top 10 for cars, and a top five for vans. FN50 companies have a combined fleet of more than one million vehicles, and the reliability survey is the UK’s largest.
Fleets praised the Honda Civic for its low whole-life costs, impressive depreciation value, competitive finance offers and low running costs. The sporty model also offers a wealth of safety features as standard, including collision mitigation braking, lane keep assist, lane departure warning and road departure mitigation.
Marc Samuel, fleet sales operations manager, Honda UK, commented: “To have the Honda Civic named as the most reliable car for fleets is a fantastic achievement and testament to the work we are doing to deliver a unique and more dynamic proposition to end users. The Civic is a recognised, sporty brand which is renowned for reliability. This achievement further reinforces our strong credentials in the fleet sector.”
The reliability of the Honda Civic was recently proven at the annual MPG Marathon competition where it was named the outright winner for 2018. The Honda Civic managed an impressive 87.53mpg over a route of 331 miles, and also scooped an award for the best percentage improvement over a car’s claimed fuel economy.
