The BMW 3 Series has been presented with the Best Convertible and Best Compact Executive Car awards for the third year in a row at the 2011 Auto Express New Car Honours.
The BMW 3 Series received praise for being the best all-rounder offering good fuel economy and lively performance.
Auto Express' Acting Editor, Graham Hope, said of the wins: "There’s simply no stopping the BMW 3 Series. It reigns supreme in the compact executive class, after claiming its third consecutive win,- no mean feat in such a closely fought sector of the market. Although rivals come thick and fast, the 3 Series has the measure of them all.
"Nothing has been able to dislodge the superb BMW 3 Series Convertible since it took over at the summit of the drop top sector back in 2009. With its slick folding metal hard-top, sharp handling and strong performance, the car mixes wind-in-the hair thrills with traditional 3 Series strengths of entertaining driving dynamics and peerless quality.2
