BMW Cleans Up at Car Awards 2013
LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 07/05/13 -- The new BMW 3
Series Saloon has scooped the award for Best Compact Executive Car,
for the fifth consecutive year at the Auto Express New Car Honours
2013. Praised for its dynamism, value for money and affordable
running costs, the BMW 3 Series Saloon remains the car of choice in
the compact executive sector.
The BMW 5 Series Saloon has once again taken the accolade of Best
Executive Car at the Auto Express New Car Honours 2013. It's the
all-round appeal and low CO2 emissions that has clinched the 5 Series
this award for the second year running.
Auto Express' Editor In Chief, Steve Fowler, said of the wins: "The 3
Series has dominated the compact executive class for five years now,
and the latest model looks set to continue that. You'd expect it to
be brilliantly built and fantastic to drive, but the real bonus is
that it's competitively priced and well-equipped, too. And with low
emissions, it's seriously cheap to run.
"BMW's 5 Series ticks every box for executive car buyers: it'll put a
smile on your face when you drive it, it's got all the prestige
you'll ever want, it's hugely practical and with low CO2, tax bills
will be cheap."
Topping off the night, Dr. Ian Robertson, Member of the Board of
Management of BMW AG, Sales and Marketing, was inducted into the Auto
Express Hall of Fame for his service to the car industry and becoming
the only 'Brit' on the board of the world's most successful premium
