The BMW 5 Series Saloon has been recognised once again-winning the ‘Best Executive Car’ category, alongside the BMW 5 Series Touring which was named ‘Best Estate Car’ at the recent UK Car of the Year Awards. Evaluated and compared by a well-respected panel of UK journalists, these titles add another impressive UK accolade to the BMW 5 Series’ growing collection of international honours.
The multi-award winning saloon impressed judges with its refinement, cutting-edge technology and build quality. Commenting on the win, Alex Grant, UK COTY judge, said: “The 5 Series impresses not only for its cutting-edge connected, electrified and partially-autonomous technology, but because the car underneath does everything so brilliantly.”
The 5 Series Touring was commended for it flexibility, practicality and driving dynamics. Nargess Banks, UK COTY judge, said: “BMW has mastered the art of designing and engineering the perfect estate car replete with intelligent technology.”
These awards allow the BMW 5 Series to automatically be shortlisted for the overall UK Car of the Year award, the winner of which will be announced on 23rd February 2018. The news also comes after the BMW 5 Series was voted ‘Best Used Car’ by What Car? Magazine, ‘Executive Car of the Year’ by Association of Scottish Motoring Writers (ASMW) and ‘Best Large Executive’ by CarBuyer.
