The annual UK based Fleet News Awards announced their winner a few days ago. The Fleet News Awards 2009 are judged by a panel of industry experts and several awards are handed out every year.
The BMW Group through their BMW and MINI brands, managed to score 11 awards across a broad range of categories. BMW 1 Series and 5 Series were awarded ‘Best Small Premium Car’ and ‘BMW Executive Premium Car’ respectively. The recently launched BMW 7 Series won the award for the “Best Luxury Car” in the UK while BMW X5 took the “Best Large SUV” crown.
The MINI models were recognized as ‘Best Residual Value Star’.
BMW scored points due to limited costs during vehicle’s ownership, performance and owner appeal. But the engine choices have made the difference by offering the the top three most powerful models in the world with sub 160g/km CO2 emissions: 330d Saloon, Touring and Coupé outputting 245 horsepower.
