BMW Group has had a successful start to the autumn with multiple awards from Carbuyer, Parkers and News UK. Taking centre stage, the all-electric BMW i4 claimed three awards, demonstrating its unrivalled capability in the company car market. MINI Convertible also proved to be another top contender, securing a double win for Best New and Used Convertible.

Five wins for the BMW Group at the 2023 Car Buyer Best Car Awards

The BMW Group secured an impressive five wins at the Carbuyer Best Car Awards 2023. To be considered in each category, a model needs to have excelled in the areas of running costs, safety, technology, performance and practicality. It’s not enough to do well in just one or two of these areas, the car must demonstrate exceptional performance across the board.

The BMW i4 took home the award for Best Company Car, with judges describing the model as “a fantastic all-rounder”, that is “great to drive, loaded with technology” and boasts “a strong range for rock-bottom running costs.”

Another of Carbuyer’s “great all-rounders” was the BMW 2 Series Coupé, which took home the title of Best Sports Car. Judges commended the car’s “strong engines and efficiency, plus that usual BMW handling” and stated that the model encapsulates everything that they love about the BMW 4 Series into “a more compact” package.

Despite BMW i3 production recently coming to a close earlier this year, this pioneer’s legacy continues, as it claimed the award for Best Used Small Electric Car. Judges commented, "now out of production, it surely won't be long before the BMW i3 gains a cult following as one of the most innovative early EVs to bring electric motoring to the masses. Eye-catching, great to drive and brilliantly efficient, used buyers should grab one while they still can..."

The MINI Convertible stole the show at this year’s Best Car Awards, with a double win across two categories. The first category was Best Convertible, with Carbuyer affirming their “favourite drop-top’s” best-in-class status, "year after year, the MINI Convertible simply cannot be beaten” and continues to be their “Best Convertible for 2023.” The MINI was also the “top choice” in the used car market, with judges praising the model for its value for money.

Parkers present the award for Best Company Car 2023 to the BMW i4

Celebrating those cars that set the standard, the Parkers New Car Awards seeks to recommend the best vehicles for the United Kingdom’s car-buying public.

The “deeply impressive” BMW i4 stood out from the crowd, securing the victory for Best Company Car 2023. Commenting on the win, Keith Adams, Editor at Parkers said that the i4 “offers all the performance and poise we’ve come to expect from a petrol-powered BMW saloon but, because it’s electric, it doesn’t emit a single gram of CO2. And it can cover up to 367 miles per charge, which is bordering on combustion car levels of convenience.” Although, the real “icing on the cake” for judges was the model’s brilliant tax efficiency for company car users.
