LONDON, England – The BMW 730Ld has won a double at Britain’s 2016 Professional Driver Awards.

The big sedan has been crowned Car of the Year at the awards, as well as Chauffeur Car of the Year.

The Seven, according to a media release, was commended for “its unrivalled mix of comfort, driver satisfaction and outstanding features to make it the ideal chauffeur car both for the driver and the driven”.

‘ONE OF BEST SCORES YET’

Its sheer and improved fuel consumption, the release enthused, along with an excellent manufacturer-backed chauffeur programme, won it the title.

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

HOW IT WAS CHOSEN

The Professional Driver Car of the Year is chosen from seven category winners.

Each short-listed vehicle underwent rigorous testing by more than 80 judges – invited heads of leading chauffeur and private-hire companies, experienced chauffeurs and carefully chosen motoring editors and journalists.
