Four Straight For BMW

Over the past decades, the German auto manufacturer has become one of the world’s most admired brands. They were recognized as the architect of quality and modern cars that some of us have been dreaming to own and drive. That’s why it’s inevitable that BMW is an achiever, a real winner in every aspect that is.

Yesterday, BMW has proven the industry once again how great they are. The German carmaker has been named the absolute winner of the International Engine of the Year (IEotY) awards for four consecutive years. TheAutoChannel.com reported that a international set of judges awarded the top honor to the 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged petrol engine. It powers the 1 Series, 3 Series and X6 in the 135i, 335i and X6 xDrive35i models in that order. Both BMW and MINI went home with five category wins between them to govern the awards this year.

BMW’s 3.0-litre twin-turbo petrol engine thrashes an imposing list of powerplants from close competitors to claim the entire award. The BMW 3.0-litre twin-turbo petrol engine also notched ‘Best engine 2.5-litre to 3.0-litre’. The 5.0-litre V10 powerplant, which is the previous International Engine of the Year recipient, won its category of ‘Best engine above 4.0-litres’.

“To win the International Engine of the Year is an immense achievement and underscores the technical expertise and dedication of BMW’s engineers and designers. But to win it four years in a row in such a convincing fashion is unprecedented. BMW Group’s winning engines were, in many of the categories, competing against our own products for top position,” says Klaus Kibsgaard, Managing Director of BMW (UK) Ltd.
