The BMW 730Ld Saloon has been crowned Car of the Year at the Professional Driver Car of the Year Awards 2016, while also taking the title of Chauffer Car of the Year.

The BMW 7 Series was commended for its unrivalled mix of comfort, driver satisfaction, and outstanding features making it the ideal chauffer car both for the driver and the driven. Its sheer quality and improved fuel consumption, along with an excellent manufacturer-backed chauffer programme clinched the title.

Mark Bursa, Editor of Professional Driver magazine, said: “The new BMW 730Ld registered one of the highest average scores for any car we’ve ever seen in the history of the Professional Driver Car of the Year Awards. Factor in some impressively low running costs and some great manufacturer back-up, and you’ve got an exceptional car.”

Richard Hudson, Sales Director for BMW UK, said: “To take home this prestigious award is a real honour. The BMW 7 Series has gone from strength to strength since its launch in 2015 and we hope this continues in the future.”

The Professional Driver Car of the Year is chosen from the seven category winners, and the awards are announced at the Professional Driver Awards dinner in November. Each shortlisted vehicle undergoes rigorous testing by more than 80 judges, comprising of invited heads of leading chauffeur and private hire firms, experienced chauffeurs, as well as carefully chosen motoring editors and journalists.

CO2 emission information.

The values for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption shown were determined in a standardised test cycle according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version currently applicable. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers transmission (automatic or manual) and the different wheels and tyres available on the selected model and may vary during the configuration.

The values of the vehicles labelled with (*), are already based on the test cycle according to the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to allow a comparison between vehicles. More information on the transition from NEDC to WLTP test procedures can be found here.

These figures are intended for comparison purposes and may not be representative of what a user achieves under usual driving conditions. For plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles the figures have been obtained using a combination of battery power and petrol fuel after the battery had been fully charged. Plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. The CO2 emissions labels are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the Passenger Car (Fuel consumption and CO2 Emissions Information) Regulations 2001, as amended. They are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle.

A guide on fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contains data for all new passenger car models is available at any point of sale free of charge. For further information you can also visit this link.
