SUCCESS FOR BMW AT THE AUTOCAR AWARDS 2022.

BMW has enjoyed great success at the Autocar Awards 2022, picking up a trio of awards including the coveted Best Manufacturer in the Autocar Britain’s Best Car Awards – surpassing all other manufacturers. It’s their most prestigious award given to the manufacturer that has impressed the most across the board throughout the year.

In recognition, Mark Tisshaw, Editor Autocar stated, “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.”

In reference to BMW as Best Manufacturer, “...the engineering is as fine as it ever was, something most aptly demonstrated by cars like the M5 CS, which shows that BMW hasn’t lost its ability to really interrogate the details and hunt marginal gains in the pursuit of brilliance.”
