AutoZine Awards 2017

After a full year of hard work, what could be better than sit down and look back to the remarkable players of last year? Since 1999, every year AutoZine presents our awards to the best and worst new cars launched in the past year. Throughout the years our spirit never changed - the best cars are to be appreciated without any national bias, while the worst cars are to be highlighted without the slightest mercy.
Car of the Year

BMW 5-Series G30
It is obvious why BMW 5-Series can consistently top the executive car sales chart: it has always been the best overall package - handsome, well-built, fast, excellent to drive, refined, comfortable and efficient. It ticks all the right boxes. The new G30 has sharpened its handling again yet edges closer to Mercedes in terms of ride comfort and interior quality. An M550i takes less than 4 seconds to sprint to 60 mph, and M5 is coming! But most important, every model, no matter the entry-level 520d or 4-cylinder 530i, the mass selling 530d or 540i, or the plug-in hybrid 530e is up to the same high standard. No rivals could be as versatile.
