6-Series Wins Design Award

From canadiandriver.com

New York, New York - Automobile Magazine announced the winners of the 2005 Automobile Magazine All-Stars awards, recognizing outstanding performance in 13 categories. The recipients are featured in the 2005 February issue, on newsstands January 11, 2005.

"The industry as a whole has really stepped up to the plate with some of the most innovative and exciting vehicles and ideas we've seen in a long time," said Jean Jennings, editor-in-chief of Automobile Magazine.

The following are the winners and the editor's comments:

Automobile of the Year: Chrysler 300C - At a time when the American auto industry needs heroes, the 300C wins the medal of honour, hands down. Chrysler's 340-hp, Hemi-headed honey has taken America by storm.

All-Star Coupe: BMW M3 - The M3's 333 hp is a lot, and so is nearly $50,000 - but the M3 is worth every penny because it rewards every bit of skill a driver puts into it.

All-Star Family Car: Subaru Legacy - The Legacy beat out the competition because it can be all things to all people: a refined, high-quality, comfortable freeway cruiser and a sporty back-roads car, with fine steering and brakes and a sweet shifter.

All-Star Luxury Sedan: Audi A8L - The A8L is impossible to ignore, to resist, or, for the foreseeable future, to surpass. Driving it is a no-fuss experience, and it engagingly does anything and everything asked.

All-Star Minivan: Honda Odyssey - Toyota, Nissan, and Chrysler have threatened the champ's reign, but the all-new 2005 Odyssey delivers another knockout punch to the segment.

All-Star Pickup: Toyota Tacoma - The new Tacoma is the best truck in its set, offering more configurations than any competitor, with refinement and impressive engineering.

All-Star Small Car: Mazda 3 - This compact sedan has an attractive price and a spacious cabin, and enthusiastic drivers can enjoy it on roads where poise matters more than trunk volume.

All-Star Sports Car: Chevrolet Corvette - The sixth-generation Corvette yanks at the heartstrings of enthusiasts and turns heads wherever it goes. The car is so good that anyone can be a hero in it.

All-Star Sport-utility Vehicle: Cadillac SRX - With edgy styling that distinguishes it from its boxlike brethren, the driver-centric SRX is an uncompromising blend of performance and utility.

All-Star Sport Sedan: Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MR - This vehicle offers major grunt, great gobs of grip, four doors, five seats, visceral performance coupled with a remarkably supple ride, and great fun, all at a price your CPA could love.

All-Star Design: BMW 6-series - This dramatic, functional, and exciting automobile stands out like a swan in a gaggle of geese.

All-Star Technology: Audi DSG - The Audi TT is the first to market with what could be the transmission of the future: the Direct-Shift Gearbox designed by BorgWarner, which combines the best features of manuals and automatics. Criteria and Evaluation
The Automobile Magazine All-Stars are chosen by the Automobile Magazine staff, its worldwide bureau chiefs, and its contributors, following a three-day test drive of the year's most innovative and important new cars. The award decisions are not made through an instrumented test process. After the 1000-mile road trip, winners are determined by a round-table discussion that results in a vote for the winner.
