The winner is…

BMW 3 Series

The trophy cabinet at BMW’s HQ must be groaning under the weight of the new 3 Series’ accolades, as our reigning compact executive champion now adds a Golden Steering Wheel award to its collection. The BMW has always been fast, fun and cost-effective to run, but the latest version also boasts comfort, refinement and a roomy cabin.
