Six times a champion for BMW at the BusinessCar Awards 2012


BMW UK has scooped six awards from one of the country’s leading  fleet publications.  BusinessCar magazine has honoured BMW with  the headline accolade of ‘Manufacturer of the Year’, for  the fourth year in a row, in recognition of BMW’s diverse  product portfolio and class-leading running costs.

‘Business Car of the Year’ has been awarded to the new  BMW 1 Series in honour of its appealing overall package with low  running costs making the smallest BMW just as tempting as its larger  family members.  The BMW 320d EfficientDynamics Saloon has been  named ‘Green Car of the Year’ for the second year in a row  thanks to its class-leading driving dynamics coupled with exceptional  economy and attractive ownership costs.

For the third year in a row both the BMW X5 and BMW 3 Series Saloon  held onto their titles, having once again been named ‘Large 4×4  of the Year’ and ‘Upper Medium Car of the Year’  respectively.  Topping off the awards haul, the BMW 7 Series was  also voted ‘Luxury Car of the Year’.

The BusinessCar Awards are the only honours voted for solely by the  title’s readers, reflecting the opinions of the people who  really matter in the fleet industry, which gives them a particular gravitas.

Paul Barker, Editor of BusinessCar commented: “BMW’s impressive  and class-leading combination of desirability, efficiency and driving  pleasure has again shown itself, with this haul of awards, decided by  the readers of BusinessCar, proving that the brand is at the forefront  of the company car market.

“Across the range there is a model for every level of employee,  each one offering low tax bills, good running costs and the premium  BMW badge. The people running these vehicles and giving them to their  staff obviously appreciate the job BMW is doing.”
