BMW has concluded the year 2014, in every respect a successful one, with more than 50 national and international awards. The prize winners were chosen by juries comprising readers of trade magazines or by specialised journalists who selected the winners in various different topic areas and categories. The spectrum of distinctions ranges from awards for design, sustainability, sportiness and innovation to intelligent vehicle networking.
The most important international prizes include the renowned "International Engine of the Year Award", with the winner being determined by a specialized jury consisting of 82 car journalists from 34 countries. The 3-litre straight six-cylinder petrol engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology was declared winner of the coveted prize in its respective category for the fourth time now. The same jury twice awarded the BMW i3 the title "World Green Car of the Year", also acknowledging its trendsetting design with the title "World Car Design of the Year".
The technological leadership of BMW ConnectedDrive in the area of assistance systems was verified by top rankings, both nationally and internationally. BMW received the "Euro NCAP Advanced Award" for the Pedestrian Warning feature with City Braking function, a driver assistant system that reduces the danger of collision with pedestrians in urban traffic.
Last but not least, the BMW i8 was voted "Top Gear Magazine's Car of the Year" by the British cult journal "Top Gear". In its appraisal, the magazine states that "the BMW i8 is a milestone in the annals of automotive history and a glorious statement for an exciting and positive future".
