The new BMW 520d EfficientDynamics Saloon has been awarded with the Next Greencar Executive Car award in the 2011 Next Greencar awards.
Having beaten competition from the likes of Audi and Volvo, the BMW 520d EfficientDynamics Saloon received praise for its performance and delivering 62.8mpg and 119g/km CO2 emissions.
Next Greencar said: "As BMW's greenest 5 Series, the 520d EfficientDynamics Saloon continues to reign supreme in the executive class, combining low emissions with an impressive drive."
Meanwhile, at the Towcar Awards 2011, the BMW 520d Touring won the top award, where it was the quickest, most economical and cleanest car in its class, with 139g/km CO2 emissions and 53.3mpg of fuel consumption, where it earned a five star rating in the 1725 - 1899kg category.
Expert judges from What Car?, Practical Caravan magazine and the Camping and Caravanning Club said: "It didn't take long to decide the winner in this class. The BMW 5 Series does it all. Straight-line stability is beyond reproach. Hill starts are a doddle. It is fast, stable, spacious and practical, the 5 Series impresses in every department."
