The UK journalists have awarded the BMW 3 Series Sedan and Convertible the title of “Best Compact Executive Car and Convertible”. Judged by a panel of motoring experts, the highest-volume seller BMW vehicle have received these awards due to their superior dynamics, sharp handling and balance.
Referring to the 3 Series Sedan/Saloon, Auto Express journalists said: “BMW’s superior dynamics won the day. A model range that includes everything from a diesel variant capable of 62.8mpg to the supercar-chasing 414bhp M3 is unbeatable.”
The Convertible model received equally high praises from the same UK journalists: “The standard 3 Series is famed for its sharp handling rear-wheel-drive chassis and the Convertible is no different. It leaves the competition trailing with its agility, grip and balance, while the engine range includes BMW’s potent petrol and diesel units”.
BMW has also been nominated six times in other categories with the new Z4 and 7 Series, 3 Series Coupe, 5 Series Sedan, X6 SAC and the John Cooper Works MINI.
In June, BMW has also been named the Best Car Manufacturer in the prestigious Which ? Awards 2009 at the British Museum in London and at the same even, the BMW 118d was named World Green Car of the Year in 2008.
