As the seventh version of the mid-size saloon, the 5 Series has had sales in excess of 7.9 million over the previous six generations, and BMW looks to continue the success of the world-renowned brand.
At the What Car? Awards ceremony, editorial director Jim Holder said: “It’s hard to recall another year with so many exceptional new models vying for our overall Car of the Year award, which makes the BMW 5 Series’ victory all the more impressive.
“The 520d SE with optional variable dampers is the pick of the 5 Series range. But whichever version you choose, you’ll be getting one of the classiest and most comfortable cars on sale today."
Hildegard Wortmann, BMW Group’s senior vice president, said: “For the BMW 5 Series to win the prestigious ‘Car of the Year’ award is an honour and testament to the hard work that goes into producing one of BMW’s core models.
“The BMW 5 Series is a brand shaping saloon and in times of rapid change within the automotive industry we believe the seventh generation model points the way into the future. It is a truly outstanding car and I am very grateful to What Car? for this great recognition.”
Fitted with the full range of BMW’s latest technologies including a suit of semi-autonomous safety systems and AirTouch gesture control, the 5 Series is one of the most modern and comfortable cars currently on sale.
