BMW Claim Car of the Year Prize

Mon 14th Dec 2020

German manufacturer BMW have been awarded an accolade by one of the industry’s most influential motoring publications after being named Evo Car of the Year 2020.

BMW picked up the prize this week for their M2 CS following a series of extensive tests on the Anglesey Circuit and Scottish Borders, during which the eight Car of the Year finalists were tested for both on-road and on-circuit thrills.

Stuart Gallagher, evo editor, said: “In the BMW M2 CS our six judges experienced the very essence of a driver’s car. From the way it looks, to the performance it offers and, crucially, how it engages with the driver on road and track. Of our eight finalists the M2 CS was the car we couldn’t get enough of. In an outstanding year for new driver’s cars, the M2 CS was the standout car.”

The win follows an outstanding first year for the M2 CS, announced in November 2019, the first customer deliveries arrived in the spring of this year, but only in limited numbers, ensuring that the everyday usability and exceptional handling dynamics were only available to a lucky few.

Speaking about the award, Graeme Grieve, Chief Executive Officer, BMW Group UK, said: “We are exceptionally proud that BMW M2 CS has taken the evo Car of the Year 2020 title among such a competitive and varied field and this award is proof that we raised the bar. Every detail of the vehicle was designed for high performance and racetrack capability, delivering the trademark BMW M driving experience. To receive such high praise from the evo team is a very special way to end the year.”
