An analysis carried out by the Gesellschaft für Technische Überwachung (GTÜ) found that BMW was the automobile brand with fewest defects and the highest level of reliability, the Munich-based car maker announced in a press release.
In recognition of this achievement, the Stuttgart-based inspection organisation has presented BMW with the “GTU Quality Trophy 2014”, which is awarded purely on the basis of objective, practical data.
GTÜ evaluates the technical condition of automobiles which are one to three years old and four to five years old. The BMW 1 Series and the BMW 5 Series achieved particularly impressive results here. In the Sports Car/Convertible category, the BMW Z4 finished at the top of the ranking with the best rating for the first general inspection. All results appear in the annually published GTÜ used car guide and “Auto Zeitung”.
The award was received on behalf of BMW by Dr Herbert Diess, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, Development.
The “GTÜ Quality Trophy” was established by GTÜ and “Auto Zeitung” to recognise outstanding quality and reliability in automobiles. The award was presented at the 27th Auto Trophy held in the Hamburg Cruise Center in Altona and is one of the most important of its kind.
