Big Win For BMW At Autocar Awards

Tue 17th May 2022

German engineering has come out on top at a prestigious UK car awards event, after BMW claimed a hat-trick of top prizes.

BMW claimed the coveted Best Manufacturer at the Autocar Britain’s Best Car Awards, a prize which is given to the manufacturer which has impressed in all areas in the last 12 months.

Speaking about the impressive clutch of prizes, Mark Tisshaw, Autocar editor said: “We chose BMW as Best Manufacturer in our 2022 Autocar Awards, due to its strength in depth. It makes the most competitive cars across more classes than any of its rivals – developing performance cars with the BMW M range and pioneering the road to electrification with its BMW i range of cars.” 

Elsewhere at the awards, the BMW M5 CS eptimoised that high-end manufacturing knowledge by being the only car to be awarded the 5 Star road test verdict. Now in its sixth generation, the new-look M5 has caught the eye of critics and consumer alike, and is recognisable due to its redesigned M kidney grille.

Tisshaw continued: "The BMW M5 CS is the super-saloon to rule them all… a timely reminder what BMW does best… and a fitting award too, as BMW M celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.”

The BMW i3 completed the trio of wins for the German brand, described as a future car classic, the EV won the Autocar-Beaulieu Future Classic Award, with judges saying: “The leadership and legacy BMW i has built up over the past decade in electric cars started with the i3….already a legend in its own lifetime. It was the unanimous choice of judges and readers alike.”
