BMW scoops 5 awards

Wed, 25 Mar 2009
People considering buying a car in the near future may be inspired to go for a BMW model after the company's recent success at an industry event.

At this year's Fleet News awards, the company scooped five out of a possible 11 honours.

Stephan Chater, corporate operations manager with the firm, said: "This is a fantastic result and underscores the competitive advantage the BMW group enjoys in the marketplace."

He put the manufacturer's success down to a combination of the excellent performance and low carbon dioxide emissions offered by its cars.

Fleet News awarded the Mini range - which is owned by the BMW group - an honour to recognise the fact it offers the best residual values.

In addition to this, the BMW 7 Series came out top in the luxury motor class, the 5 Series took the title of Best Executive Premium Car, the X5 was named the ultimate SUV and the 1 Series was judged to be the most impressive model in the small premium vehicle sector.

Meanwhile, the company released its 730Ld in the UK earlier this year.
