Find your next fleet at the Silverstone Fleet Show

By / 5 years ago / Latest News / No Comments

Held at the iconic Silverstone Wing on Wednesday 11th May, exhibitors include 21 vehicle manufacturers and up to 300 of their latest models, available for test drives on three circuits as well as local road routes, and with experts on hand to talk through the benefits for your fleet.

Fresh from its double win at the Fleet World Honours, Renault will offer first UK drive opportunities on the all-new Megane hatchback at the event. Versions available include the Dynamique Nav and sporty GT Nav, the latter equipped with a 205bhp turbocharged petrol engine and four-wheel steering.

The new Giulietta is the star of the Alfa Romeo stand, now refreshed to include new Giulia-inspired styling and trim levels targeting business users, as well as the TCT twin-clutch gearbox on the 118bhp 1.6-litre diesel engine. Guaranteed to attract interest from attendees, this offers attractively low CO2 emissions of 99g/km – matching the manual version.

Toyota and Lexus will bring an all-hybrid line-up to the event, spearheaded by the all-new Prius in Business Edition specification. Visitors will also be able to sample the manufacturer’s latest hybrid drivetrains in models ranging from the Yaris through to the new RAV4 Hybrid crossover and Lexus RX 450h SUV, as well as trying hydrogen fuel cell technology in the futuristic Mirai.   

Alternative drivetrains are just as prevalent elsewhere. Volvo will offer first UK fleet drives of the 49g/km T8 Twin Engine on its stand, while the X5 xDrive40e M Sport will be available to try on the BMW stand. Audi’s forthcoming Q7 e-tron – the only diesel-electric plug-in hybrid in the class – will be on display at the show, while Volkswagen Group stablemate SEAT will present the Qashqai-rivalling Ateca crossover for the first time in the UK.

Highlights also include opportunities to try key fleet models including the stylish new Kia Sportage, chic MINI Clubman, emerging French premium brand DS Automobiles and the revolutionary Tesla Model S electric luxury car, ensuring attendees have access to vehicles to suit all needs.
