Nearly half of all company car drivers consult their partners when choosing their next vehicle, new research has revealed.
According to the research from Skoda, 39% of men seek their wife's opinions while 51% talk through the options with their husbands.
One in seven (15%) meanwhile allow their children to have a say in their next car choice too.
The research from the Volkswagen Group-owned company also claims that corporate vehicles are used for 55 minutes a day for non-work purposes, with 47% of drivers using their company wheels to ferry kids to and from school.
"At Skoda, we understand a company car isn't just used for business, it's also for home life. Our models combine cutting-edge technology and affordable company car tax rates, with features that families love - particularly spacious interiors and high levels of practicality," said Henry Williams, head of fleet at Skoda UK.
