BMW 3-series named World Car of the Year

The new BMW 3-series has been named ‘2006 World Car of the Year’ at a presentation during the New York International Auto Show, which started last week.

A jury of 46 international automotive journalists awarded the prize to the 3-series due to its ‘balance of ride, handling, performance and interior space’.

Graham Johnson, co-chairman of the World Car of the Year steering committee, said: "The new 3-series delivers a balance of traits that only a few cars on the market offer. BMW’s compact executive doubles up as a family car during the week and a sports car at the weekends. This unique double-act, twinned with the 3 Series’ exceptional levels of refinement, meant the BMW was a clear winner."
