BMW 5 Series wins 2019 Fleet News Award for Best Executive Car


For the second consecutive year, the BMW 5 Series has remained at the top of its class – having won the same award in 2018.

Driveability was the key reason for its success. Judges felt that nothing else in the segment offered the same combination of engagement and refinement, making it a favourite with drivers.

CO2 emissions are among the lowest in the category, which means favourable benefit-in-kind tax for drivers and low running costs for fleets.

The standard-fit infotainment system is intuitive and features a brace of connected services, giving drivers access to traffic updates and online entertainment services.

A comfortable and spacious interior makes the 5 Series ideal for long journeys, with adequate power coming from the range of turbocharged petrol and diesel engines.

The option of a plug-in hybrid further increases the car’s appeal.

Simply put, the 5 Series is BMW doing what BMW does best.

Finalists: Audi A6, Jaguar XF, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Volvo S/V90

Award sponsored by Ogilvie Fleet
