The annual ceremony, held this year at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, saw the BMW 5 Series Saloon and BMW 5 Series Touring both receive accolades for their roaring success in 2017.
This is the second year in a row that the BMW 5 Series Saloon has been crowned as the 'Best Luxury Car', which is a testament to the success of this business saloon since its launch last Spring.
It was highly praised for its 'plush' interior and user-friendly BMW iDrive infotainment system, along with its generous standard specification even on the entry-level SE model and comfortable ride.
Judges commented that the BMW 5 Series Saloon remains plush, luxurious and comfortable enough to rival cars which cost twice as much. BMW’s innovative iDrive system helps here, too, as it’s one of the most user-friendly set-ups around.
It is the first time that the ‘What Car? Car of the Year Awards’ has come around since the launch of the BMW 5 Series Touring in March 2017.
Just like its saloon counterpart, the generous specification on the entry-level SE model was highlighted, along with its BMW iDrive infotainment system and interior quality.
What did stand out was the space and practicality of the 5 Series Touring which helped to secure its title as the 'Best Estate Car' in the over £30,000 category.
The What Car? judges described the car as "one of the most complete cars money can buy – spacious, comfortable and great to drive. This BMW 520d offers class-leading refinement, and you get plenty of kit even on SE models.”
