Quadruple Success For BMW in The Auto Trophy 2017.

For 30 years now, German motoring magazine “Auto Zeitung” has conducted a readers’ survey to decide the winners of the “Auto Trophy – World’s Best Cars” award. And BMW is celebrating a quadruple success in this year’s anniversary poll. The brand’s quartet of class winners in the Auto Trophy 2017 span a broad section of the Munich-based premium car maker’s model line-up.


The Auto Trophy – World’s Best Cars award is one of the most renowned in the automotive industry and, with its three decades of history, has one of the longest traditions. The latest edition of the survey was based on feedback from readers of both Auto Zeitung and – for the fourth time – the magazine’s international partner titles and online portals. The respondents chose their favourite models across 16 vehicle classes and two special categories to decide the winners of the Auto Trophy 2017.

The winner of the Auto Trophy 2017 in the midsize class was the BMW 3 Series. Its conclusive 17.7 per cent share of the vote underlines once more the enduring popularity of this bestselling model, whose appeal has been further enhanced with the addition to the line-up of new special-edition variants of the Sedan and Touring variants. And the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo – whose vehicle concept is unique in the midsize class – has also contributed to the market success enjoyed by the latest model generation.

The new BMW X3 rounds off Munich’s quartet of Auto Trophy winners. The third generation of the midsize Sports Activity Vehicle had won over the readers of Auto Zeitung and its partner publications before it was even launched, thanks to a sharply contoured design, further refined premium ambience in the interior and significant advances in functionality, comfort and connectivity. The new BMW X3 took the plaudits in the “SUVs from 25,000 – 50,000 euros” category with 20.6 per cent of the vote.
