Since its establishment 14 years ago, BMW has won several World Car Awards. Previous accolades have included the inaugural World Urban Car award in 2017 (BMW i3); the 2016 World Luxury Car award (BMW 7 Series); two back-to-back World Green Car awards (BMW i8 – 2015, BMW i3 – 2014) as well as another World Green Car win in 2008 (BMW 118d with EfficientDynamics). In 2006, the BMW 3 Series secured top honours as the World Car of the Year.
An official statement released by BMW said: “We at BMW are very excited to receive this award from the World Car of the Year organisation. The BMW 5 Series has always played an important part of the BMW product portfolio. With this 6th generation BMW 5 Series we are able to offer our customers a broad range of variants ranging from the extremely efficient BMW 530e plug-in hybrid, all the way to the BMW M5, which is the quickest BMW ever built, reaching 0-60 in under 3.2 seconds.”
