The BMW 3 Series has been voted Continental Irish Car of the Year 2013, by the Irish Motoring Writers’ Association.
The announcement was made at an awards ceremony in the Convention Centre Dublin. Some of the leading figures from the motor industry attended the ceremony. The event marked the first time that BMW took home the title.
Presenting the award to Michael Nugent, Director of Sales and Marketing, BMW Group Ireland, Paddy Murphy of Continental Tyres Ireland commented: “The BMW 3 Series is a fitting winner of this prestigious award given its renowned efficiency and technological strengths. For some time this series has been a favourite among the business and broader driving public, and the recognition of excellence from the
Irish Motoring Writers today will only enhance this standing.”
Michael Nugent, Sales and Marketing Director BMW Ireland commented: We are greatly honoured to receive this prestigious award and wish to thank the members of the Irish Motoring Writers’ Association for all their efforts in running this superb competition. It is wonderful to have the BMW 3 Series endorsed by this expert group particularly in the face of some pretty stiff competition. We hope to reach a much wider audience as a result and head into 2013 confident of a great start for the BMW 3 Series.
Not only did the BMW 3 series win the Irish car of the year, it took home “The Continental Irish Family Car of the Year” Award. “The Continental Irish Executive/Luxury car of the Year” Award went to The BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé.
