CAR OF THE YEAR 2012 - THE WINNERS

Hybrid Car Of The Year 2012, BMW 5 Series Sedan ActiveHybrid 5 (A)

Hybrid Car
A hyper hybrid, thatís what the ActiveHybrid 5 is. A turbocharged engine, matched to a synchronous electric motor helped by an efficient gearbox is all it takes to make this BMW especially fast and also more fuel-efficient than its petrol-only brethren, the 535i.
The luxurious cabin deserves praises as well, and from the way itís packaged, will surely win the hearts and pockets of executives who want to make a statement. And letís not forget how much of a competent handler this car is. Factoring in the 160 g/km C02 emission that puts it into the $5,000 government rebate band, it certainly makes a strong case for itself. Suddenly, going green is cool.
