Munich. BMW is the automobile brand with the fewest defects and the highest level of reliability. This is the result of an analysis of some 5 million general inspections carried out by the Gesellschaft für Technische Überwachung (GTÜ). In recognition of this achievement, the Stuttgart-based inspection organisation has now awarded BMW the "GTÜ Quality Trophy 2014".

Practical data demonstrates a high level of reliability.
The quality prize is awarded purely on the basis of objective, practical data. GTÜ evaluates the technical condition of automobiles which are one to three years old and four to five years old. The BMW 1 Series and the BMW 5 Series achieved particularly impressive results here. In the Sports Car/Convertible category, the BMW Z4 finished at the top of the ranking with the best rating for the first general inspection. All results appear in the annually published GTÜ used car guide and "Auto Zeitung".

At the award ceremony, GTÜ Managing Director Rainer de Biasi praised the excellent technical quality of the automobiles as well as the good service provided. The award was received on behalf of BMW by Dr. Herbert Diess, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, Development.

The "GTÜ Quality Trophy" was established by GTÜ and "Auto Zeitung" to recognise outstanding quality and reliability in automobiles. The award was presented at the 27th Auto Trophy held in the Hamburg Cruise Center in Altona and is one of the most important of its kind.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here:
