Under the Sun Life deal 85% of company car drivers will have Volkswagens with the benchmark car being the Passat 1.8 SE with air conditioning, although drivers can trade up and down within the policy. The remaining 15% of cars are driven by company directors who will continue to have a free choice.
Following the signing of the three year contract Michael Baker, Sun Life's general manager human resources, said: 'We are always keen to get good value. Our task was to save cost and deliver positive benefits to our employees. This we have done by minimising depreciation through buying a quality marque while offering a mix of product.'
