BMW Recaps the Various Awards for 2017.
Last year was a good one for BMW – not only did they achieve a new worldwide sales record, they also managed to sell an impressive 100,000 electric cars. Their models also claimed a lion’s share of accolades from magazines and car industry organizations around the world.
The BMW 5 Series was the critic’s darling in 2017, earning “Car of the Year” from “What Car?”, the “New Car Award” as well as “Executive Car of the Year” from Autocar. It also claimed a “World’s Best Car” distinction, “Reader’s Choice”, Value Champion” and “Four-Wheel Drive Car of the Year” from various revered automotive journalist organizations.
But the BMW 5 Series was not alone in its adoration: the BMW i3 and BMW i8 also got their fair share of critical praise. Together, they claimed nine awards overall, including “International Engine of the Year” for the BMW i8 from Auto Zeitung.
